Dena, you have my sincere condolences and my heartfelt prayers. To lose one parent is difficult. To lose the other in less than two weeks has to be one of the saddest moments in life.

Both your daddy and your mama were wonderful people whom I'm so glad I had the privilege of knowing for most of the past fifty years.

May OUR GRACIOUS FATHER grant you strength, acceptance, and peace.

God bless the entire Lever family at this very difficult time.

With much love and sympathy,
Terrie Mayer

Kevin I am very sorry to hear about your mom. Please keep in mind 2 Corinthians 1:3. There it tells us that the God of comfort will comfort us and be with us through all of our trials in verse 4. I will definitely keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

To the Lever My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this most difficult time. It is bad even to lose one parent but to lose the other one in less than three weeks is truly a loss. I know that your dad is rejoicing to see your mom.

Kevin and family,
We are all so very sorry to hear of Mrs Barbara’s passing. She was one of the sweetest ladies I have personally ever met. I know Mr Lawrence and my nanny both are having her a beautiful homecoming! My nanny loved Mrs Barbara so much and there’s not a day that I can remember when I was a little girl going to see my nanny that Mrs Barbara wasn’t there or either they were on the phone. Sweet memories I will always have of such a sweet soul! Y’all are all in our thoughts and prayers!
