We ask that you please keep the Lawrence family in your prayers as they travel through this difficult journey.

Grady Anglin Lawrence was born to Roosevelt and Adell Manley Lawrence on March 10, 1938 in Eufaula, Alabama.

He was educated in the Barbour County School System. He left home at the age of 18 and moved to Tampa, Florida.

He was employed by the Lite Brothers Meat Processor and

later employed by Cast Crete for many years until retiring.

Upon returning home in 2016, he reconnected with his beloved "Ruth", the love of his life after being separated for over 40 years.

They were united in holy matrimony in 2017. They lived

happily until his demise. In their marriage, he got saved. He joined and was baptized at Landmark Christian Center under the leadership of Bishop Nathaniel Newsome in Baker Hill,

Alabama.

Grady had a giving spirit. He gave to his family and friends, whether he came to visit or when we visited him.

He leaves to cherish his memories his beloved wife, Mary Ruth; his children, Ronald Watson Lawrence, Grady Lawrence Jr, and Mary White; six sisters, Recy Cochran, Martha Hamerter, Cora (Roger) Turner, Edna Lynn, Annette (Charlie) Davis,

Bertha (FJ) Hawkins; five brothers, James (Rosie) Lawrence, Roosevelt (Carolyn) Lawrence, Johnny (Joeretha) Lawrence, Willie (Earline) Lawrence, Jerry (Cassandra) Lawrence; nine sisters-in-law, one brother-in-law, seven grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

The Broken Chain

We little knew that day, God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, In death, we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you. You did not go alone. For part of us went with you, The day God called you home. You left us beautiful memories, Your love is still our guide. And although we cannot see you, You are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, And nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again
