I met Mrs. Corby when I was in ninth grade when I went over to Chad’s house after school to hang out and stay over for the night after getting fed up with dealing with my family for some unknown reason. Anyways, so after I get uncomfortable sleeping where I was I went to the kitchen or something and she offered to allow me to sleep in the guest room upstairs (which I happily accepted) and thought not too much of it afterwards until I heard of Mrs. Corby’s passing. When I heard Mrs. Corby had passed, this memory came back and I don’t remember if I took the opportunity to tell her “thank you” or not as what she did was very kind of her (this act of kindness showed how she cared and wanted those especially Chad’s friends like me for instance and many others to feel comfortable and at home, even though it wasn’t our house). May you r.i.p, Mrs. Corby you’ll be missed by us all.

My first contact with Laura was 16 years ago when our family needed guidance finding the best place to live where autistic students excelled in school. She suggested Collierville. We moved here from Michigan and our son thrived in the schools. I volunteered with Laura during an art auction, a few silent auctions, and a 5k run/walk. She was generous with her time and her knowledge and allowed me to learn from her business when she was running the Autism Solution Center. I interned at the center for 10 weeks for credit toward my degree. The time I spent with Laura was a big part of my life and a memorable time as well. Although I didn't stay in touch with her the past few years I would enjoy her posts on Facebook and think fondly of her. I'm saddened and heartbroken that she is no longer with us. One of the things she used to say was "you rock". I believe someone painted her a rock with that saying on it. I hope the family still has it after the move from ASC.
