To the Glory of almighty God, who will raise and quicken the dead and In loving memory of our beloved Wife, Mother, Grandma, Daughter, Sister, Aunt, Niece and Friend;
We can hardly believe that one year has passed already, since you fell asleep. It seems like it was just yesterday! The pain is real and the void is gaping, but our Hope is certain, we will see you again!
“For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that He shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another...” Job 19:25-27. On that day, you and all the faithful that are asleep in the dust, will rise at the call of the Archangel. Together, we will rise to meet the Lord in the air, never to part again!
Yudeh, your Summer is soon to come!

My Love Always for Sarah Fredericks….
My love for you began in Brandywine, Maryland when I was a single mom in a new home with two young boys… in desperate need of direction and perspective. However, you frequently reminded me that your love for me began when you traveled to visit Uncle Mickey in Flushing 43 years ago upon hearing that your best friends had given birth to a girl named Elizabeth. Reuniting with you in Maryland was truly serendipitous in every way – though you had known me my entire life through your friendship with my parents, I quickly came to realize that God sent you and your love at a time when I was most in need - when I was most unsure about myself and my abilities. And just like the angel you are, you appeared and immediately put it all in perspective for me - Like only you could. You became my cheerleader, my confidant, my partner in (good) crime ? and my comedian when I couldn’t find my own smile. When Dementia robbed me of my mother, without hesitation you immediately stepped in for your sister…being the mom that I needed and the grandma that the boys needed. Through your living examples and fervent prayers on my behalf, you strengthened my faith in God and directed me closer to Him. Evangelizing the Word of God daily within my life and the life of others.

The Lawrence, Baryon, Kollie and Allison families would like to thank all those who sympathized with us during the home-going events of our Father, Uncle, GrandDad, Brother and Cousin(Samuel T. Lawrence). Your flowers, cash, kind and words of consolations were remarkable and without you, the process would have been difficult.
We are extremely grateful for kind gestures.
Dear Pappay Sam: (Samuel T. Lawrence), we want to thank you for sharing 78 unbroken years with the family. Your smiles and affections will be greatly missed. You were our gentle giant and your love for service to humanity is worth emulating. Your patients called you the poor man’s doctor, your peers called you Cous and we the children called you Pappay Sam. These were distinguished honors bestowed upon you for the quality of life you lived. You were always a fun guy and you enjoyed every bit of your life to the fullest of your ability. It’s hard to imagine been at family’s functions without you. You are loved even in death, you will forever be missed. God be with you till we meet again.
As you journey this new path, we extend our loves to the faithful departed: Ma Guator, Ma Deddeh, Ma Rebecca, Jeff, Darlingboy, Peppa Hawa Ben, and Johannes. “ If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, we would walk right up to Heaven and bring you back again. Our eyes still ache with sadness and secret tears still flow”. You will always have a special place in our hearts. We love you all but Jesus loves you best.
Kollie Kpator and Rachel Lawrence.
