Our thoughts and prayers are with with Aunt Laveda, Kay Kay, Rodney and your families. I always loved how Aunt Laveda could tell stories of life in Cove and Borger with the family, and "fixing" the exaggerations told by her brothers.

I remember a strong lady from my childhood 30-40 years ago. Thad and Laveda were always exciting family to visit when my family would make it back to Borger. Rest In Peace, I love you all. Gone, separated, but good times not forgotten!
