You have been gone a year. I know that you have had peace for the same. I'm sorry that your last year of life was so challenging. I understand so much more now. I love and miss you and wish you could sit on the patio and enjoy the flowers and a fudgie brownie with us. I love you always,

Dear Laura, I thought about your Gramma yesterday. She never forgot our birthdays & I hers. I'm sure you miss her very much! I know I do, even though we hadn't seen each other for a few years. I hope your memories of her will help you through the holidays! God Bless!

Happy Birthday, Laura. Till we meet again!

I'm remembering you especially this weekend of your birthday anniversary. Wish we could have gone to church together and enjoyed a dessert. I shared The Legend of the Candy Cane with the youth group at church today. Thanks for sharing it with me so I could pass the story along to others. Love you, Gramma.

I simply passed by one of your bank branches and had a meltdown. I suddenly missed you so much. I didn't understand for a minute. Then it was crystal clear. 6 months today. Your memorial candle is burning by my favorite photo of you. I miss you, Gramma.

To my dear friend, Laura. I miss you so much. Even though we hadn't seen you for some time, you will always have a place in my heart. Rest in peace beside your special guy, Ira !

The retired N. Ridgeville Librarians just had a luncheon, and I learned of Laura's passing. Laura was my first Library Aide back in 1976. She was wonderful with the elementary children.
We had a long friendship. I still have the beautiful candle holder that Ira made for me, too. They are together again in heaven.

My heart breaks as I read this death notice. I send my deepest sympathies to all. A stronger lady could not be found on this earth! She was matron of honor in my wedding, and was my "West side mom." We worked together in N. Ridgeville Schools. Tough to say how much she meant to me and will be missed almost as much as my own mom.
God bless you, Laura!

I recently learned of Laura's passing. I am so sorry for your loss. When she and Ira left North Ridgeville, Debbie Drive was never the same. She (and Ira) will live in my heart forever.

I've missed you these four weeks. I lit your memorial candle at home by the fireplace. Be at peace, Gramma.

Dear Gramma.
You must be so pleased and feel so special by the outpouring of love from family and friends. I feel so uplifted by the kind words and thoughtful anecdotes being shared. I visited your assisted liviing today. Sunday afternoons just won't be the same without you. I miss you.
