    Lura will be very missed. She was always so loving and friendly to me. I will always have fond and warm memories of her. My thoughts and prayers are with you Julie, Larry and Families. Sherry

    Ms. Lou was such a blessing to me while I was growing up at Sylvan Park. It saddens me to know that she is gone, but I know she is happy with the Lord and her family that went before her. We are praying for the family.
