To Laura's family: I met Laura at Colony Oaks. She was my roommate for a short time. Her cousin, Debbie, used to come and see Lori so very often and would bring her food and great company. I was so shocked to hear about Lori's passing. I saw her at the assisted living place and she seemed so happy to be there and was looking forward to a motorized wheelchair so she could motor down to her son's house on Ashbury. Lori was a very kind person and she perservered through so much pain and suffering during the last year or so. I wish I had gone to see her more often. Prayers to her family, and Debbie, her faithful cousin and friend. Barbara Bieber Appleton

Justine, Tuna, Dawn and families, and all her beloved friends, With love and heartfelt sympathy... What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why she left this earth so soon, or why she left before we were able to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that she died, but that she lived, and valued you all in her life, and that her life gave us all memories too beautiful to forget. Until we meet again, Laurie, save me a spot near the dreamy pink roses and babys breath.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

My condolences to the people who loved Laurie as we did. She was one of the sweetest people in the world. To go through what she did the last two years made her one of the bravest people we knew. She will be missed.

I thank God for all the years and memories I have with Laurie. We had a very special bond, more than Aunt and Niece. The last year and a half was very rough for her and I wish I could have done more. I wish my prayers would have been answered that she would be healed and walk again so she could go home but that didn't happen. I guess God had a better plan. So now she's walking, dancing and planting beautiful gardens with him. I will truly miss her there's no doubt there will be a BIG empty space in my heart for her. But in my heart and mind I know I will be with her again. And Gizmo misses his grannie too. My heart goes out to Laurie's family and very specail friends that have been there for her during the good and the bad. With Heart Felt Sympathy

Laurie: Your life took a terrible turn a year and a half ago and only God knows why. And even though you deserved better from some, I will always cherish the memories you and I made during my weekly visits. The laughs we shared and at times, the tears. I have no regrets, and I am proud to call you my cousin and my friend. Please watch over my flowers, as they will most certainly need your help. And if you get time, take a walk thru them and smell the roses. RIP honey, you left us way too soon.

Justine, Mel, Curt and your families: My heart feels so heavy right now. I am so sorry that I can not attend the memorial service this Saturday, for my dear friend, Laurie. I remember such wonderful times we had together. Our trip to Memphis with Jane, her teaching me so much about flowers and her patience with putting a cross word puzzle together. There are so many wonderful memories. I am there for either of you if you need me. Love always Rose

My heart goes out to all the family of Laurie. I didn't know her well but from what I heard, she was a special person that went through a trying time in the last couple years.
