While there, relatives and friends can unite in love and support for each other as they prepare to say “farewell.”

As hard as it will be for Lakecia’s loved ones to depart without her, God our Heavenly Father promised to give peace that will surpass all of our understanding even in the midst of grief and sorrow.
