I was fortunate to have known Laura for the last nineteen years of her life. She was a joy to be with, and we had many visits over the years. She was a very loving and giving person. I met her mother Catherine and the three of us celebrated many holidays together. I will always miss Laura and am so thankful I saw her recently and gave her a kiss on the head, telling her how much I cared. May she rest in peace.

Laura was a wonderful, sweet girl in high school and I always enjoyed our visits after we graduated as well. She will be missed by all who knew her and lovingly remembered.
