Judy, Limessa, Lathan, and Larry. Words cannot express the amount of sadness that I am feeling. Lathan was an incredible and loving
person. One who would go above and beyond to help others in need. A shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen, a hug with a smile to give. He will forever be in my heart. I know he will be making lots of his famous pancakes in heaven ❤

With all of our love.

Nicole and Kevin
