Deb, Sandy, Karen and family
I was so sorry to hear of Aunt Laura's passing. It's hard to find the right words to say at times like these. I have many fond memories of Aunt Laura and "the gang" growing up. We would somehow always end up at someones house and you were sure to have a good time. I remember many parties at Aunt Laura and Uncle Pauls house where we would strike up some good baseball games in the field. She was my favorite. She was the only one that got away with calling me "Victoria". She always had our backs when needed. She will be missed. Know you are all in my thoughts and prayers. I am always here if you ever need anything. Take care and God Bless
