    Hello. I’m not sure if we have ever meet or not or if we are relatives or not but I have just seen this on my fb and am sorry to hear this either way. Bet she had a lot of fun in 95 yrs.

    Sorry to hear of Lavern’s passing. Can’t believe that she was 95 years young. Herb Heise was my grandpa, Lavern took very good care of him when they were together. I haven’t kept in touch the last few years, but our family has many fond memories of Lavern. She was like a grandmother to my children. My God comfort your family and give you peace as you deal with your loss. Linda
