Memories Timeline


  1. Candle 1My deepest condolances and prayers to the Family. Ms. Laurice was a lovely lady. She was the best second mom a person could ask for. The Hanks family were like my “other Family” growing up. There was always a welcome for me. May she rest in peace along side with Mr. Red. They both are in paradise together and will always be greatly missed. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless!

  2. I’m so Sorry for the loss of Y’all Sister. Im sure She will be missed by You All but I’m sure Y’all have lots of Good Memories of Her to hold on to. You are All in my Prayers.
