To Lavonna's Family, deepest sympathy for the loss of your mother. I have many fond (and funny) memories of working with Lavonna at the Florentine in the 80's. She was such a dynamic person, someone I will never forget. Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Gail

Butch, Laura, Keeth, Tasha, Brain & family, I am so sorry for your loss. It was an HONOR to know Lavonna and to be called her "Buddy". I have known her all my life, and she became my best friend for the last 7 years!!! She had the biggest heart and was the biggest Valley View Fan!

Lavonna will be dearly missed. I worked with her for years at Berry and she was a hoot, always up to mischief. I tried to keep in touch with her after she left but didn't see her that oftern but when I did she always talked about her grandbabies and what they were up to. I will always remember her stories and her laugh. So sorry to the family, my prayers are with you in your time of loss.
