Laurene had to be one of the sweetest woman I have had the privilege to know. She was kind, caring and when she asked how you were doing, it was not in passing it was because she cared. I admired her steadfast faith in our Jesus. I have a lot of wonderful memories (too many to share) that include her, Malcolm and church. Also the wonderful memories of her friendship with my Mom. I picture them in heaven admiring all of its beauty and catching up with each other. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends. We will miss her and her beautiful smile. It won't be the same but we can rejoice that she is in heaven.
