I'm going to miss (Aunt Laura) and so will my kids. She may have not been a blood relative but she became our family and with her permission she allowed us to call her our Aunt. Our holidays, birthday partys, summer dinners and Sunday after church dinners will never be the same. I have to say I have watched every Christmas movie at least 3 or 4 times. I'm going to miss Christmas the most putting all my trees up and you coming over and enjoying them. We love you and will always remember you. Enjoy your time in the arms of Jesus, with your husband, and your kids I know you have missed them. If you happen to see my daddy please tell him I love and miss him alot. Forever missed but not forgotten Love always, Donna, Jason, Krystal and Sapphire
