  1. The world is greatly diminished with the LaJuana’s passing. There is nothing that could be said that would assuage the crushing grief that her loved ones are experiencing. We may take some consolation knowing that she has gone to our Lord.

    LaJuana was my cousin, but she was about old enough to be my parent. She was always loving, kind, understanding, and empathetic to me and my sisters. We reciprocated by loving and admiring her. I respected her for a myriad of things , but perhaps the most important thing was that she was such a wise and great mother.
    Eddie Bussey, my father and LaJuana’s uncle, adored her; indeed, he always told us that, if all his many nieces and nephews, she was his favorite. I remember how overjoyed he was when she introduced us to Glen, her new husband.
    I wish that I had the words to express how deeply I felt about LaJuana. I take solice in knowing that she is in heaven and enjoying the loving company of God.
