Laura wanted nothing more than anything in life to be a mom ever since she was a little girl but was not able to have one herself. But through the selfless blessing of Heather and Sean they made her wish come true and it was the happiest day of her life when we were blessed with Michael. Laura and Michael had a very special bond.

If you would like to make a donation to Laura's memorial for expenses, including helping with Michael, we have set up a bank account at Vystar with the account information as follows:

Bank name: Vystar RT# 263079276 Account # 7507606961 Name on the account is Blake McKibbin in Memorial of Laura McKibbin The account will only be open for 90 days.

Celebration of Life of our beautiful Laura Louise McKibbin

Please join us in our Celebration of Laura’s beautiful life. She was an amazing person, friend, sister, cousin, daughter, granddaughter, mother and wife.

Date: Sunday, September 16th Time: 2pm to 5pm Location: Hilton Garden Inn Address: 145 Park Avenue, Orange Park, FL 32068 Phone: (904) 458-1577

For anyone who is coming in from out of the area who would like to stay at the hotel, they will have a block of rooms for $99 per night. To receive this rate, you will need to call the hotel at the number above and ask for Lisa in Sales. It may take her a little while to get back to you but she will.

To help keep this Celebration as Laura was, the event will have NO ALCOHOL, NO DRUGS and NO FIGHTING, and the dress attire will be casual in keeping with her spirit. A nice gold shirt and shorts are more than ok.

Even though we will be here to celebrate how beautiful and precious Laura was, please remember that Michael, who is Laura and Blake’s son, will be there and he is only 3. He is having a very, very hard time with this so instead of flowers or other items we are requesting that whoever will be attending to please bring a small toy, wrapped for Michael to help him remember this as a good day as much as it could possibly be for him and all of us.

Thank you everyone for all of the love and support.

I can't believe I am even having to write this; that one of the original 4 cousins has been called back to our creator. It brings me peace knowing you're there with Grandma and Grandpa, silently watching over us now. Cousins are our first best friends, and my childhood was full of love and laughs with you. My wish is for Michael to know how kind, gentle, and caring you were. Those traits paved the way to make you the amazing mother became. You still live on in the hearts and minds of the loving family you left behind. A beautiful soul is never forgotten.

Laura was another daughter to me. I took her into my home daycare program when she was just a toddler and even then she always wanted to help me with the babies. As she grew older she was like my little assistant. She was so smart, compassionate, loving and helpful. She continued to come to my daycare through her earlier school years, after school and we use to joke around that she would be attending college and still stop by in the afternoons. To see me, to help out, to have a snack. Laura and Diana took part in all my family events and were there for me when I was sick when my husband was sick and when he passed. I loved that girl and am so fond of her mom Diana. I cannot wrap my brain around what happenend and my heart hurts for Diana, Blake and Michael. Rhoda

I've actually never had to write a memory message before this so....not sure how or what to say but darn sure don't want the suggested guidance for doing so. Therefore; just winging it when I say
"dang....this even hurts me so much when I'm so far away.....I cannot begin to imagine the pain for Diana and the rest of Laura's family"
Laura - what an absolute sweetheart! A do anything for anyone person. I always loved to mess with her in the office. She always knew when I was messing with her and would give me that disapproving smile but many more times....that disapproving laugh and then have the nerve to shoo me away because she had many, many more productive things to do than put up with me.
I shall always remember that smile and that laugh as they were the substance of Laura's so sweet nature. Strong willed....yes, outspoken....oh yeah....and ever so pleasant and fun to be around. Miss you sweetie!
