  1. Judy and Family,
    My love & prayers are with you in your time of loss.
    Jeanette Shavers Eddins

  2. Mathew and I had the pleasure along with our Aunt Maudie and her husband Frank Butler, of sharing a meal with Lamar on March 13th. He was so happy. He said he was a blessed man. He spoke of his long and happy marriage and how proud he was of his children. I am glad to have had that time with him.

  3. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you as you mourn the loss of a husband, father, and grandfather.
    Remember that Jehovah God himself has endured the death of a loved one so he understands your pain.
    One day soon “death will be no more.”
    I have so many happy memories of your family. I hope to see you tomorrow night at the visitation.

    All my love – Michelle

  6. I think of Lamar a great deal since his passing. I remember when I use to spend the night with Myra and Lamar teased me unmerciful he always love to tease me and Myra and he really enjoyed scaring me to death, I will always remember Lamar with such a great big smile I will miss him always I pray that his wonderful family especially his life mate and wife Judy finds more happiness than tears to help her through the long days and nights. I hope too she knows how much she is loved by her family and friends. Your cousin Angelia Quattlebaum
