    When I called and talked with Aunt Laverne we would talk about God’s Word and church and many other things, a beautiful woman who loved our LORD JESUS
    Knowing how much Aunt Laverne loved the LORD. It would be fitting to end this with a verse

    Micah 7:7
    Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me.
