Memories Timeline


  1. Mary Jean Fisher Moore and other members of L. V.’s Family, Regardless of age, health, or any other circumstance we are never ready to give up our family members. Only Faith in the Sovereignty of God and concerned friends sustain us. We are thinking of you and will hold you in our prayers. Zunita and Joe

  2. Members of L. V.’S Family, We are never ready to give them up. I do remember L. V. loved to sing gospel music and hope that it helps in some small way to know that others do care. Mary

  3. To Elsie and family and to all the extended family I have very fond memories of Uncle L.V. He was always my favorite Uncle. Circumstances beyond my control prevent me from being at the service and sharing in the celebration of his life today but just know that all of you are in my heart and prayers. love, Mary Jo

  4. Jean and David: So sorry for your loss. Our relatives, friends, and children are what the Lord gave us to enjoy and emulate while here. I trust that your uncle was an example to follow and love. As I miss mine, so will you miss him. My God keep him at His right hand and protect him forever. Louise and Henry
