No greater in-law parents could one be gifted with. My life has been made richer by your generosity of spirit and love.

 So sorry to learn of Lawrence's passing .We played football together at Tarboro High and I always considered him a good friend. He was such a devoted husband and provided love and care to Phyllis for a long time. May God give his ;loved ones the strength to bear the loss and the faith that they will be reunited with him.
