Sorry for your loss. We will miss Lawrence. He was a really sweet man and we love having you all as neighbors.
LAWRENCE SHAW was one of the most honorable men I ever come in contact with, as a child I grew up next door to the SHAW family,James was the policeman of Jonesboro, and my barber as a child, I can remember Lawrence coming home from Korea, and then working at Luther Keys for ever so long, then next time I see him he is working for the town of Jonesborough, lifesaving crew, anytime time there was an event in town,Lawrence Shaw was seen working, you never heard a ill word spoke of him and he was always helping somebody. I am so glad to have known him and his family. he will be missed many.Rest in Peace my friend, your service here is done.
