Dear Lord, we thank you for calling us your children, and for making a home within us so that we may rest safe and secure in You. Because You are our dwelling place, we are never alone.

The Late Reverend Levi C. Williams, Sr., Appleton and Davies families of Maryland County, Liberia, and the United States of America announce with deep sadness, shock and disbelief, the sudden loss of our beloved son, father, brother, nephew, uncle, cousin. This sad event occurred in the early hours of Saturday, February 24, 2018 at the Hope for Women Health Center, Paynesville City, Liberia.

He attended the Bishop Ferguson High School, Harper, Maryland County and was a student of Religious Education at the Liberia Baptist Theological Seminary. Lauvette was a mentor and guardian to many youths in his congregation and community. A successful business; he was the Owner and Chief Executive Officer of LAW Enterprises on 12th Street, Sinkor, Monrovia.
