To my Uncle, Kathy, Randy, Jeff and Lee and the entire Lawrence Family . . .
I will miss her very much she was one in a million, always asking if we wanted something to eat or a coffee. Our visits were always enjoyable, fun talks, laughs and memories. Not many people having their family all around them but I feel Im so lucky having Uncle Walter and Aunt Janet as neighbors. We share and enjoy all the wild animal sightings together. You will always be in my heart and mind. RIP Aunt Janet
