On Saturday, Dec. 18, 2010 held in the arms of, and surrounded by family in her home, Lanell Davis Lee, was called back to our Heavenly Father. We know she was only loaned to us by God, but never prepared for the day we would have to give her back.

Worth; and two daughters, Patricia Williams and husband Ronnie of Breckenridge, TX and Pam Porter and David Hornsberger of Sweetwater; two sisters, Gloria Burnett and Edna Linder of Sweetwater; and one brother, Charles Harrison Davis of Tomball, TX.
