I am so sorry for the loss of a great cousin,wife,mother,and grandma. Love you lots, Delia Larkin Smith
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the family at this time, and especially to Dale as well as their children. We’ve always admired Dale and LaNez and love their daughter Su’Ann and while we know that death is but a door that leads to our next estate, it’s still hard for those who remain behind.
LaNez has left a legacy of stalwart faith that bouys us all up and we know that the Lord will send the Conforter to those that remain. We give thanks to God for the knowledge of eternal families and know that LaNez is happily reuniting with hers on the other side of the veil.
To Dale, SuAnn, Ruth...I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet mom. She was always such a devoted mother, grandmother and wife.
I spent many hours with LaNez and Dale at church functions, setting up and cleaning up. They were always willing to anything to help. I loved living in the neighborhood, driving by their house and waving to them while they were in their front yard doing whatever needed to be done. They were always there to lend a listening ear, share a dinner at their home, oh, and don't forget those sugar cookies. Too good to be real. I have used Nez's receipe many times but mine never turned out as good as Nez's.
Even after I moved from the neighborhood I looked forward to seeing her at weddings and other occassions. Always there to help and a true friend.
I love you Nez, you will be missed.
Dale, I am feeling your loss and sadness at this time.
My wife Marie died suddenly this last February, so this loss is still very close for me. I can understand what you are feeling.
I pray for the peaceful feeling of the spirit to be with you and your family as a close companion in the days ahead. There is great comfort from understanding the blessings and the knowledge the gospel gives us. This is a strong foundation to hold on to. I can tell you I know where Marie is as you know where LaNez had gone. You will be with your sweet companion in the time ahead. As you are faithful to the end of your earth-life you will be happier than you can imagine on the day you are reunited with LaNez.
I always appreciated LaNez as one of my favorite cousins and know that she was faithful to those she knew and loved. I always looked up to her and feel blessed to have been her cousin.
My thoughts and my love are with you at this time of sadness for you.
I'm so sorry for the loss of your Mother wife grandmother and great grandmother. May peace be with you and your family. I enjoyed visiting with her on several occasions. Take care
We were so sorry to hear about LaNez passing away and are so grateful that we visited with her a few weeks ago. We will be unable to attend the funeral service for her because our family is celebrating our 50th anniversary that was in December but we couldn't get all the family together then. We send our love and condolences to your family, especially to Dale. We do love you all and have been praying for you all too!
Please know we'll be there in spirit but just can't be physically. Much love to you all!
So sorry about the loss of LaNez. She was a wonderful person, friend and relative. My best wishes to you and the family.
Our hearts are with you, her family. She is an amazing woman who has had such a great influence on so many. Her kind, patient, and loving care enriched so many children that she cared for...including my two sons. He nurturing nature, kindness, and patience has lead to many successful lives that she truly had a large part in. She has a rich legacy and will be sorely missed, but also will be fondly remembered in so many ways. I will never make grape Juice in the fall without thinking of how she taught me and let me borrow her juicer for MANY years before I finally got one of my own. How she 'tended' my boys while I worked - for most of their young lives and for a week while we were out of town, and so much more. A life truly well lived and celebrated. She will always hold a place in my heart ❤️. I hope you also find peace and comfort recognizing her larger circle of influence. Rest in peace and love LaNez.
