Mom was watching and waiting for that moment when the Lord would take his Bride. Yet, she knew the possibility of crossing over by way of the grave some day. With that in mind, she left for us her final wishes.

First, she wanted her homegoing to be a time of celebration. It was her desire that loved ones left behind would rejoice in knowing she is forever with the Lord. She wanted to be remembered for the life she lived before us all, and rejoice in her new life hereafter. So, it is our prayer that her homegoing service will indeed be a time of worship, remembrance, and celebration.

Secondly…although any and all expressions of love, condolence, and sympathy are deeply appreciated, Mom’s desire is that, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations be made to the family to help defray funeral costs. In the end, she had no life insurance.

To that end, as we endeavor to fulfill her wishes, the family has set up a “Funeral Fund” account where donations can be made by those who may desire to support the family in this way. We are deeply grateful for your prayerful consideration. Please click HERE to view the “Funeral Fund”
page for more information: https://www.funeralfund.com/project/joyce-lanier

Also, an obituary page is being created where friends and loved ones may post comments, share memories or express condolences by signing the Guest Book. You will find the Obituary page HERE.

Finally, for anyone wishing to mail cards or letters to the family, please mail to:
Lanier Family
150 Hardwick Drive
Covington, GA 30014

Again, on behalf of the family, we sincerely love and appreciate you.

Heaven is surely sounding sweeter every day!

Gospel music vocalist, John Lanier, sent a sad email this morning to his subscribers. John Lanier’s mother, Joyce, has battled with cancer twice in recent years. This brave lady has fought long and hard, but early this morning, she stopped fighting and went home to be with our Lord. Joyce was 68 years old.
