    I am so sorry to see of her passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. She was at onetime a very big part of volunteer program at springs nursing center. She had a heart of gold. She will be missed.

    I have known Laurie near 26 years although we had not seen each other in several . One of my most precious memories of her is that when anyone would ask her how she was her answer was always “Blessed.” A special lady with a sweet and gentle spirit. I know she is in the arms of her beloved Jesus.

    Laurie was one of the most extraordinary people I’ve ever known. I am so glad that we were able to reconnect, because I had missed her friendship throughout the years. I feel so blessed at being able to swap notes and emails with her…share stories and a chuckle or two. I will miss her witty sense of humor, her simple common sense, and that wonderful twinkle-eyed smile that always made my heart melt…even after so many years.
