I grew up knowing the Lawrence family and they have always been special to me. Sherlene and Kenneth were friends of my parents and we spent many times with them fishing on the river and having a catfish cookouts. I always knew I’d receive a Christmas card from Sherlene. She was a sweetheart and I know her family loved her and will dearly miss her. Deepest sympathy to her family and friends.

Sherlene you was the strongest woman I have ever known. I am going to miss our talks we had when I stayed with you. I want to thank you for the best gift in my life, your Son Anthony. He adored you and your love as his Mother shines through him. I know you are in a better place and with everyone who has already departed from this earth. Enjoy your reunion with them all. We will see you again one day. We love you so very much and will miss you immensely.
