Laura was much more to me than a friend, she was like a sister to me. We both knew we could count on each other. Laura and I had the greatest gift of all from God. The friendship, sisterhood, kindness, love, appreciation and so much more that most people never find in a lifetime. We always made each other laugh. I truly believe in our own way, we made each other feel whole. I am so thankful Laura and I crossed paths on earth and I know we will reunite in heaven one day. I am missing you, your smile, your support, your humor and my true friend. I will love you forever and always, Laura King-Gaines, may you rest in peace. My Guardian Angel 😇 💜🙏

My wonderful Mother whom I loved so much. I cant imagine my life without you. I needed you here but the Lord must have needed you more. I hope you are rejoicing in Heaven with Memaw & Granddaddy. There are no words to describe the loss of you & how it will impact my life and those around me. You were there for so many of us. Saying you will be missed is an understatement! Until we meet again my loving mother❤ Please keep a look out in us all because this just may be the hardest thing I've ever had to do!
