    Our hearts go out to Charles, Louise and the family for such a tender loss. Before the precious life of Lexi had really begun, God in His tender mercy saw wisdom in laying her to rest. So very thankful to have been her mathematics teacher for the two years spent at Peterson Warren Academy, where she learned to know the Lord as her personal Friend and Savior.
    God Bless, till we meet again.

    Lexii was so precious. She didn’t want to join pathfinders because the uniforms were weird in her fashion opinion (didn’t blame her), but she was part of our youth group for a whole year. She participated in AY events, got to see her play on the CFL team and she attended PWA. She was a precious gem who shared joy everywhere she went. Her inquisitive nature always kept us on our toes. We’re honored to have known her and are heartbroken by her passing. May God’s strength hold her family during this time. Brother Gibson and Sister Louise we are praying for you and the entire family. We love you!

  22. Veronica Heard

    My condolences to you all. Please know that my prayers and heart goes out to the entire family. God bless this family, my family give the strength and comfort peace Heavenly father. Continue to lean on him and call on him. I love you guys.

  23. Enid and I are sorry and saddened by the loss of Alexis. She was a very nice young woman and was a bright light whenever she was at City Temple. We will miss her.

    We will keep the family in our prayers.
