Aunt Lavonne was a lovely lady in every sense of the word. Our thoughts are with Jan and family during this most difficult time. I don't think there is a greater tribute to a life well lived than to know you touched hearts, gave strength and were loved - Aunt Lavonne's life fulfilled all of those and then some. We will miss her. Carol & John Horsting
