Sherice Lynee’ Speakman
“For I am already poured out like a drink offering, and the time has come for my departure. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award me on that day, and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for His appearing”.
2 Timothy 4:6-8
On July 21, 1969, a beautiful baby girl was born to Lawrence, Sr. and Sharon Stevens in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She was born 10 minutes after her twin sister and was affectionately named Sherice Lynee’.
