Thinking of all of you at this time. Laura was one of my very few close life-long friends. I treasured her friendship even though we only lived in the same area for a few years. Wonderful to see in her obituary all the good she did for her community. The world was a better place for her time with us.

What a wonderful summary of her life. She not only had a passion for making the world a better place but she was competent enough to do it! Seems like that instinct runs in her family members as well. I will be thinking of you all--Paul, Bill and Tim--and am so glad I had the chance to meet her.
