Laura, you were like a sister to me. The world is so much less without your bright light and beautiful eyes. The countless animals you helped are forever grateful to you. The ones that were lost despite your valiant efforts are on the Rainbow Bridge waiting to greet you. Rest easy, my friend - you will be sorely missed by all. <3

Dear sweet Laura. I will miss your humor, always quick with a joke. Your love of animals, more than humans, especially cats. I am fortunate enough to have one of your rescues. You saved so many lives matching cats with humans! I know you saved me with my Kammy!
I shall cherish the memories of our brief friendship.
Rest easy my friend.
Krissy.
