Laura and Jerry's home was always open to me, and that certainly didn't change after Jerry's much-too-early passing. Laura was an extremely gracious and strong woman who without question loved the Lord. Brad - you're my brother, and I am so sorry for your loss. Justin and Kelly - I love you guys and am praying for you all. My earliest memory is Laura and Brad and us picking corn out on our farm in Pleasant Valley circa 1976. Our eyes were about swollen shut afterwards.
Laura - rest in peace, and I very much look forward to seeing you again!
Sincerely - Walter W. Lackey, Jr.
