  1. Lavell is well remembered for the excellent work as a builder/carpenter. I have personally known Lavell, Betty, their Sons & Grands and know he will be missed by his family/friends.
    We as believers know that Lavell has been accepted/moved to his heavenly home and is now fully well.
    God has at least one project that he will use Lavell’s Skills, for His Ultimate Heavenly plans.
    I’m proud to call Lavell my Friend and more importantly that he has called me his Friend. We are all blessed to have known Him.
