One of the most godly women I've ever known, Laurene was a prayer warrior and an encourager sent by God to fill my need for maternal friendship when my mother lived so far away. One of the greatest things she taught me was praying the scriptures. The twinkle in her eyes revealed her fun-loving nature and quick wit; whether we were sharing a meal at Los Tios or a McDonald's filet-o-fish sandwich, we were always laughing. She was so in love with Jesus, and full of passionate and unceasing prayer for her grandchildren's relationships with the Lord. I pray all those prayers are answered, and I look forward to rejoicing with her in heaven one day. Blessings and love to each member of the family.

Mrs. Alton was my granddaughters SS teacher at Westbury Baptist Church. She was so nurturing and loving to my granddaughter and to me. We had just lost my daughter, and Alyssa’s mother. I will always be grateful for her loving Christian care that she gave us. Condolences to the family. Patti, your mom was a very special person. Prayers for your loss and heaven’s gain.

Mrs Allton was a source of love, stability and comfort for my family. God put us together when my mother was dying and I needed a babysitter. I called the church for help and they gave me her number stating that she doesn’t babysit but she loves children. Mrs Allton prayed about it and followed God’s calling. She loved my children as her own and prayed for them continuously. She was my prayer mentor and friend and I am blessed to have known her. I know that she is home now with her savior, Harry and Eric.

I met Laurene when I started attending Westbury Baptist Church. We were in the same Sunday school class until she moved. I will always have such fond memories of how she made me feel so welcome right from the first day I met her. I loved her loving heart for the Lord and that she was ready to share that love. She had such a loving heart for her family and always ready to share some event that involved the family.
I extend my condolences to the family and thank you! for sharing your mother and grandmother with me. I treasure those days.
