  5. Trish I’m so sorry for your lost please email me its been so long we worked together at fleetwood I now live in tennessee.

  6. No one is ever prepared for the feelings of despair that result from the loss of a loved one.At 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 the Bible calls God the Father of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation. With deepest sympathy to your family, please take comfort in knowing that God feels compassion for what you are going through. Through His word God promises to not only to remove death, but also bring our loved ones back to life. (Isaiah 25:8; John 5:28,29) I hereby offer my sincere condolences to your family.

  7. My deepest sympathy goes out to you in your time of great loss. I cannot imagine the pain you are feeling, but be assured that God cares. Psalms 56:8 says that he collects all our tears and preserves them in his bottle and records everyone in his book. He promises to resurrect our loved ones to perfect health and life in a peaceful new world. (Revelation 21:4; John 5:28,29; Psalms 37:11,29) You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  8. I only knew Lawrence from cleaning our office at Grainger, but i can truly say that he was a sweet guy and we will all miss him. My heart goes out to his parents for their loss. May God bless you and your family in this time of need.

  9. Patricia,

  16. All I can say is that L.T was a wonderful guy, always smiling, and lovable, he never had anything bad to say about nobody, it’s just too bad that he left this world at such a young age, and to the family, I know the feeling of losing someone you love, but now we must think that he is in a better place, you will be missed but never forgotten.

  17. Trisha,
    I am so sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you and your family. There are no words that comfort but because of Jesus Christ, we can rest in the hope that we will one day see those we love and they will never be lost again. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    To the Torres Family:
    I am truly and deeply saddened by the tragic loss of your Sons/Brothers. There are not enough words to comfort you all. I am praying and thinking of your family. May God be with you all during this emotional time. I went to school with Lawrence, and I know he will be greatly missed. I did not, however, have the pleasure of knowing J.T. Once again, I give my condolences. God Bless.

  20. Jessica, Renee, and Family

    I am so sorry for your loss. My family and I will keep you in our prayers. No one is ever prepared for this and only God knows why he called L.T and J.T to heaven at this early stage in their lives. I think everyone would say when they saw J.T he would always shake your hand and ask how you were doing. He just had a respectful way about him. Lawrence, I will never forget all the good times! Man we had alot! Whether it was hangin out on 9th Street, Hay Ave. or anywhere in between. I will miss you Lawrence!

  21. There are no words to say that will make this any easier,Lawrence was my friend,we have not talked in a while but it was different once upon a time.I’m so very sorry to his sisters who have lost two great brothers.I hope you find comfort in knowing that they are together in a better place,and they will always be with you making sure ya’ll are okay.We will miss them so much,let us take peace in knowing that we will one day see them again.May you rest in peace Lawrence ”L.T” Torres,even though you were taken way too soon I know that jesus needed you more in heaven than you were needed here. You will be missed by everyone.May you rest in peace.

  22. Trish I know how it feels to lose a child, I lost my son last year. The pain is going to be there for some time. Open your heart to God and he will guide you through this. Renee and Jessica I’m sorry for your lost, now is the time to stand strong for your mom she is going to need the both of you. My prayers and my heart goes out to you.
