"ALL night and ALL day ANGELS are watching over the James and Brown Families"

"Because the Lord was her Shepherd
she had everything she needed,
He let her rest in the meadows grass,
and He led her beside the quiet stream...
That's why  Laverne is
Safe in His arms..."

On Thursday, November 19, 2020 our beloved Laverne James Brown was granted her Angel wings while in the Elizabeth City Health and Rehabilitation Center, in Elizabeth City, NC. Mrs. Brown was the daughter of Mrs. Frances James and the late Mr. Gaither James, Sr., (that passed nine months and one day prior to Laverne) she was also the beloved wife of the late Mr. Rudolph Brown.
