I met Laura’s Nonnie and Grandad when I was about 16 or 17 years old. They were both the epitome of what grandparents should be. They were honest, fun-loving, hard-working and put their family above everything else. The love they had for each other was amazing to watch. The love the family had for them was amazing as well. Laura and I flew to their home in Breckinridge when we were around 18 (my first plane ride). I have the best memories with her and her grandparents on that trip. Another awesome memory was when Christopher was born. (Laura’s first born). I was the lucky one who got to call them from the pay phone at the hospital to tell them he was here and born on Grandad’s birthday. I will never forget the joy in both of their voices during that phone call. From the bottom of my heart, I will sincerely miss Nonnie but pleased she’s back with the love of her life in heaven. Love and miss you, Nonnie♥️😇! And love you Laura, my friend, my sister and the entire family!😘
