I helped Laura with her personal care in the 80s. I remember when the Olympics were held, Laura would scrapbook them. I have thought of Laura over the years and her Dad and Mom. Today seeing the Olympics I thought I would look her up. Well, this is what I found today. I know that Laura is in Heaven with Jesus Christ. It was very evident in her life many years ago. I am blessed to have a 4'6 drawing that Laura did with a mouth piece. I will see you again my friend. What a glories day that will be. I cannot be sad for you, just who you have left behind. Suzanne

I was so surprised to find of Laura's passing as I was doing family research today. As it is so much..."I'm going to stop down and see her this summer". I'll never forget the moments we shared doing family digging and I am so blessed to have gotten to know her. The last time we visited she was struggling but still had an amazing attitude. Rest in peace dear cousin ...until we meet again May God hold you in the palm of his hands.
