    I am so sorry for your loss. I only met Eleanor once, but what an impression she made. Tammy Stovall, Lisa R and Myself will always be Eleanor’s “mattress” girls. She made me smile…I think she made everyone smile. God Bless.

  • To “Junior” and the entire Lawson family. I was so saddened to hear that (Jr.) as I have always known him , had lost his loving wife, and his best friend. I have known Jr. and some of his family for many years. We go back to the early (60s). He had always been a person that would lend a helping hand in any way that he could. Would never fail to speak and have a friendly smile on his face. Jr. and family, it is always hard to loose a loved one, but have the wonderful assurance that one day you will see her again. As Jesus has said, ” he will never leave you nor forsake you in this troublesome time. May God make smooth the path before you in the days and weeks ahead. Continue to keep your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. God bless each of you. Your friend in Christ Ray Brown.

    My best to Eleanor’s family at this time of great sadness, that is shared by her high school “family”. I consider it a personal loss to myself and the rest of the class of 1959.Although separated by the miles that come from living our own lives, I still feel that there is a tie that remains unbroken within this special group. Our thoughts are with all of you as we remember each other and what it meant and still means to be Eleanor’s other “family”.

    Dear Junior and family,

    My deepest sympathies to each of you. I know you will miss her so very much. I have just learned of Eleanor’s passing. She was a wonderful person and a great friend to my mother (Martha Cook). I never thought that she would be going to heaven so soon after mother, but I know they are celebrating in heaven! May your memories bring you comfort in the days ahead. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Dear Lawson Family: My deepest sympathy for the family and friends of Eleanor. We will never get used to losing our loved ones in death because as Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, “We were created with everlasting life in view.” But may you find comfort in knowing that Almighty God has promised that soon he will swallow up death forever along with the pain that it brings. (Isaiah 25:8) God has also promised that he will return Eleanor to you as it says at John 5:28,29. You can also learn more about what happens when a loved one dies at JW.org.
