So sorry to hear the news.  Laura was a lovely person!  She always had encouraging words for others.  Find peace in the wonderful memories she left us all.

Laura was a friend and a good person for all of us. She will be missed. She will be missed but in our memories.

To her family, I want you to know our thoughts and prayers were with you. Terry

As I wrote elsewhere on our SW site, I remember Laura for her great enthusiasm and for her kindness to me when i was deeply homesick the fall of my sophomore year in college, at Southern Methodist University.  She made a gift for me of a wooden lap board, a portable desk beautifully illustrated with a Hummel-like pair of children, a boy and a girl ~ lovely, sweet, and touchingly rendered.  That thoughfulness stays with me, like the lapboard, which I keep in my bedroom to this day.  Warm feelings for her always.

Sue Robertson Gale let me know the morning she left to be with Laura at the hospital. The two were like sisters, being only girls, something I didn't know. I loved Laura's joy in fluency in the German language; her travels and hosting of Charlotte Wettstein, a Swiss-German was a maturing experience during which she seemed to. Loss. I enjoyed her interactions with Phil Burns, through the German Club. She was artistic, bright and straight forward, all traits I admire. My love to her family.

Laura was kind, caring and encouraging. I remember her as being enthusiastic and always friendly. My prayers go out to her family as they go on with the best of Laura's character as a shining example of how to live.

Lauras smile and personality made it great to be around her. Another hole in my past.
