It was sad to learn this week that LaVon has passed away. She was a classmate and friend during our years at Whitehall High School. We enjoyed seeing and visiting with LaVon at our school reunions, and most recently our 50th class reunion in Whitehall in 2015. My sympathy to her husband, sons and extended family, and to her brothers Bob and Lyman and their families for your loss. Keep your memories close.

I was so saddened to get the news of La Von's passing. She was such a great childhood friend. I have so many wonderful memories of playing together at our respective childhood farms in Pigeon. Summer games and just running around, talking and sharing silly things. What a wonderful person. My sincere sympathy to John and all of the Wick and Back family.

Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. The Bible can bring you much hope and comfort at a time like this. Within its pages are the promise found at Revelation 21:3:4. God is going to end all suffering and death. We also read about the wonderful promise of the resurrection found at John 5:28:29.

Mom, you will always be in my heart forever. Dad misses you so much, you were the leader of the band. We will carry on knowing you and Jason are watching over us, for that's what we need down here. No more pain mom, you didn't need too go through that any more, you were tired of fighting. Please tell everyone up there I said hi and miss them too. I love you Mom
