Lorendia was a beautiful spirit. We enjoyed a beautiful time together growing up in Prayer Tower. Singing in the choir, working in Young Women Christian Council. She was a delight to be around. My condolences to her family. Ray be strong in the Lord. My prayers and thoughts are with the family in this time of bereavement.
