I am deeply saddened by the death of this much adored lady who had so much to live for. Sickness and death can leave behind so much pain and anguish upon a family. Draw strength in knowing that she is sleeping peacefully free of all her pain and suffering; and very soon, our loving heavenly Father will do away with everything that causes us sadness and usher in everlasting peace and happiness by means of his heavenly Kingdom throughout all eternity. (John 11:11; Isaiah 33:24, Isaiah 25:8; Matthew 6:9-10; John 6:40) My heartfelt condolences for your loss!

I was saddened to hear that Lakesia lost her long battle with cancer. We worked together at the Division of Licensing and I saw her deal with this battle bravely. She was a good woman of God. Prayers for her family.
