The family of Launa Buford Stone wishes to sincerely thank all the friends, family, medical professionals, caregivers, legal counsel and brothers and sisters in Christ that gave so much to support and improve the quality of life for Launa. The outpouring of support and encouragement from so many lifelong friends, church family and local residents was greatly demonstrated in her time of need and again after her passing. Heartfelt appreciation for all of you that went out of your way to provide transportation, friendship, visitation and acts of kindness since Launa’s physical set-back in February 2004 are remembered but can never be appreciated enough. Special thanks are conveyed to Brother Roger Anderson, Brother Bobby Bartlett, Brother Blakley, and all the pallbearers for their support and uplifting words during the memorial service. Psalm 63:8  My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.

Thank you to the wonderful people of Celina for their kindness and caring for my brother, Baxter Key.  Baxter chose to spend the final years of his life in Celina.  I now understand why he chose to stay in Celina, even though he was encouraged to move closer to family. I want to extend a special “thank you” to Baxter’s morning coffee group, Doris Hamlet, the staff at Clay County Manor and a very special “thank you” to Baxter’s adopted family including Cossandra Abbott, Latisha Key, Sheila Anderson and their families.
