Although I never met your mom, I see kindness and caring that must have been learned at her knee. Although her physical loss is painful, I hope that her presence in your hearts give you strength. We will be praying for each of you. Bob and Sulynn Sexton

Jason, although I never met your mother, I know she must have been an amazing woman just by the way you and Robin speak of her. She definitely raised a wonderful son. Corey and I are lucky to call you and Robin our friends. We love you both so much and will be thinking of you and praying for you now and always.

My sweet friend Jason Hurley.
Every time I saw Miss Laura she was smiling. I knew those who loved her and those loved by her, more than I knew her personally. Loved by all her children, she was a devoted mother. In the Bible, Jesus says His Father’s house has many rooms and He goes to prepare a place for us. I choose to believe this is why parents leave earth before us. It starts before we are born. Our mothers pick the best cribs,the warmest blanket, prepare a special room just for us, so that when we finally arrive all is perfect. They love us, protect us, and even prepare us for the times they can’t be with us. That first day of school is a doozy. You kiss her goodbye and cry all the way there wondering how you would survive without her being with you. But mom‘s got that covered too. She may not can hold your hand but you can feel her when you write your lesson with a special glitter pencil she got just for you. You can’t feel her arms but you can feel her hug when you see the special lunch she packed just for you. Then it happens. That little bit of strength kicks in and you know it will be OK until you see her again. Eight hours is an eternity to a five year old but after your time is up and the bell rings who’s waiting for you to step through the gates? It’s your mom. With open arms and your cozy home all ready for you.
Well now she has gone ahead to prepare your cozy home once again. She left you with the tools to prepare you for your job and she left you with treasures to sustain you while you are apart. She is still with you just like your glitter pencil and your warm blanket you can feel her kiss ineach ray of sun on your face, her hugs in every breeze that embraces you, and her love in every heart and soul of those she touched. I love you guys and when the lesson is over and the bell rings she will be at the gate. Jason Jacob, & Kristina you are in my prayers♥️🙏🏻

You was a beautiful person and it was a pleasure to be able to call you my mother-in-law. I know we had our bad days but we had alot more great days during our time together. I remember having to tell you that Hurley blood didn’t run through my veins but you didn’t care you treated me just like your own kids. You always said that I married Mr Allen and you would laugh and say just wait lol!! Now as you watch over us and you see me pulled my hair out because Allen Jr. I will think that you are laughing at me from Heaven. You will be deeply missed. I love you and will see you later. Your loving daughter-in-law Robin💔👼🏻😢😘
