  2. Sending love and light to you and your family here.

  3. I am thankful to call Mrs. Laverne a friend for many years. I met She and Ray at the antique store where they refinished furniture for my mom way back when. Through her son, Terry and wife Terri Ashley (my neighbor) I always felt a special bond to Laverne. In recent years she made handmade place mats. I sold her beautiful handiwork in my booth at Crockett Trade Days, and I made sure buyers knew who made them. Laverne was an ambitious lady, creative and busy doing something as long as she was able. She will be missed.

  4. So sad to hear. She always had a smile for everyone.

  5. Jan and Family, so sorry for your loss, and we will be lifting you in prayer.

  6. Dear Jan,
    So very sorry to hear of the loss of your Mom. She was such a hoot when she came in to visit at Murchison’s back in the day. I will keep you all in my prayers. Love, Cami
