John Anthony Lafayette

Celebration of life services for John A. Lafayette will be held on Monday, December 18, 2017; 11:00AM at Emmanuel Baptist Church of James Island 1440 Folly Rd. Charleston, SC. Interment: Stem Point Cemetery.

 Mr. Lafayette was predeceased by his son, John Lafayette and his sister, Sharon Grant (Leroy). He is survived by his wife, Juanita Lafayette; his daughters, Crystal Seabrook, Lacrisha Seabrook and Latonya Seabrook (Jerome); his siblings, Andrea Blake (Anthony), Johndella Jackson (Jerome), Tona McLemore (Roosevelt), and Quinton Lafayette, Sr. (Maxine); and a host of other relatives and friends. Viewing will be on Monday 10:00AM until the time of service.



My condolences to the Lafayette family. I pray God comforts the family during this difficult time. May the many cherished and loving memories of John comfort his family and friends. A wonderful and comforting thought to keep in mind is at Psalm 46:1 ""God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress."" May you all have peace of mind during this time of bereavement.

To the family, I encourage you to: Talk to God in prayer: (Psalms 55:22). Death is not natural so when one losses a loved one we ask, ""Will they live again""? The Bible writer, Job asked the same question. Please read, Job 14:14-15. God is eager to resurrect your loved one who are now sleeping in the grave. Another beautiful verse in the Bible is 1 Corinthians 15:26 , it shows that God views death is an enemy. May this be of comfort to you at this time as you mourn your loss.
