Sudden Seed Death Syndrome Hits!
Best I can figure is that I had was is called "damping off" occur. This is due to one of several types of fungus that propagate when the trays are too moist or overcrowded, which the lavender surely was. I added in a touch of fungicide to the water, but I think it was too little too late.
Park Seed company and ordered one of their Bio Dome seed starting kits. These are supposedly the best way to start seed and have no trouble with damping off.
I also got in some AlgoFlash liquid fertilizer that I can use for pretty much anything, including seedlings. So as long as I keep to the instructions, I should be OK. I guess we will have to see.
