Sure was sorry to hear about Laurice's passing.  She was always a sweet girl and it was too bad she didn't get to graduate with all the rest of us. 

I remember asking her about her health this past summer at the reunion, and she was kind of evasive, but wouldn't let on that there was anything wrong.  Sounds like she fought long and hard against the cancer that finally took her life.  Her nice smile and positive outlook will be missed.

  I always enjoyed our conversations.


   I am happy I got to see you at the Reunion.


    I  didn't know you were ill.


     It reminds us all on how life is resilient and fragile.  


      I will truly miss you.

Laurice, I miss your beautiful face with a smile that only gave us a cheerful sense. Even near the end of this worlds journey you never lost your pleasant nature. I am so glad to have had you for a friend for the last 40 years. I will miss our girl get togethers, and our phone conversations and the secrets we shared. There are so many that are missing you, you will be so terribly missed. The last time Karen and I saw you on Dec. 14th, we new it was your time to go. I feel blessed to have been able to see you and know the angels were on their way to get you. I still keep thinking that I need to call you and see how you are doing, or see what I can do to help. But I know that you rest in peace with the angels now.

LOVE your friend DOLORES

Laurice was alway so sweet and good natured.

She will be missed.

I wish I would have known in time to come to her memorial.

 I was fortunate to sit with Laurice and visit at the class reunion.   I will miss her trademark smile.  Good-bye Laurice.  Roger

 I didn't know Laurice as well as I would have like to in school, but I did get to know her a little better over the years. I'd see her around town every now and then and on occasion at the Eagles club in Sedro Woolley. One evening after one too many happy drinks I confessed that I had a crush on her when we were in the 5th grade. When she asked me when the crush ended, I smiled telling her; "who said it ended". She gave me a smile, punched me in the arm and said; "you're funny". The truth is that I always liked Laurice because she was so nice to everyone. She had the ability of making people feel like they mattered and seemed to care more about other people's feeliings than her own. When my Sister died of colon cancer she reached out to me. She told me she was thinking of me and that I was in her prayers. That meant a lot especially from some one who was fighting her own battle with cancer. I've rarely met a more caring person while at the same time be as courageous as Laurice. She was a very special lady and I'm grateful for knowing such a gental soul. And like many others have said, I too will miss her beautiful smile. Rest in peace Laurice, Polo
