  5. The late John Pickering and his family enjoyed knowing Lawrence, Hazel, Larry and Sherry from the 1950s at Berean Baptist Church in Houston. John and I were glad to have them for friends at Travis Baptist Church in Corpus Christi, TX. John enjoyed hunting and fishing in Corpus Christi with Lawrence as well as singing at the church. I look forward to seeing the family members who have gone on to Heaven. Love, Vicky
