So sorry to hear about Laura's passing. Sincere condolences to immediate family and sisters and brother. I remember as a little boy visiting Uncle Artie's, Aunt Grace's and our cousins' home, and seeing Laura a few times and thinking how cool she seemed with her jeans and energy. We hope you hang in there during this difficult time, and best wishes to you all. - Bill & Kelsey Rubin

Laura was always the sweetest. Whenever we would visit, she would make sure to hug me. She had a tough life but seems to have given her children a measure of strength that she probably had hidden away.

May God grant her rest and peace in the world to come.
