My Wife, Laura Parada Hurtado-Walls, as many knew her, Lauda, was born to Edmundo Torres Hurtado and Rosa Maria Parada Hurtado of Matamoras, Mexico, on December 4, 1972. She was the second of two girls and two boys. Laura grew up being Laura with a wonderful smile, while being a lighthearted, giving and loving person.

Her family moved to Houston, Texas, in August, 1973, and have been Houstonians ever since. She finished high school at Sam Houston High School in 1991 and went on to attend the University of Texas graduating with a Bachelor of Arts with emphasis in Government, Politics, and Policy Studies. She was proud of her Mexican heritage, the Texas Longhorns and the Houston Astros.

She began working with the Houston Police Department by entering the Police Academy in September 1995. She wanted to help people and be a valued role model to others. As part of the Houston Police Department, Laura worked in many different areas over seventeen years. She was a decorated servant of the people of Houston.

Laura married Bill J. Walls on December 6, 2010, and they resided in Spring, Texas. She loved him deeply and let everyone she met know that. Her conversations were often about him and how much she loved him and how he “completed” her life. He will miss her greatly. Life will never be the same without her. She loved everyone and they knew it. There was never any doubt or questioning that. She lived life to the fullest. She knew and followed Jesus Christ and His teachings. She understood LOVE. She attended The Woodlands Church.

She was preceded in death by her father in November, 2012. She loved her father dearly and missed him greatly. She was warm, genuine, ebullient, lively, and compassionate to all that she met. She made those she associated with comfortable and happy. We will miss Laura terribly, but cannot begrudge her joy at meeting her Savior face to face and being reunited with her father. Thank you for your prayers and support during this time of parting. We love and appreciate you. – The Bill J Walls Family

I worked with Laura on patrol at the North Police Station. I arrived at North as a very young rookie officer, not really sure of myself or anything around me. I remember Laura as always kind and welcoming and willing to help in any way I needed. She definitely made the shift and days brighter. So sorry to the family for your loss. My condolences, Tina Bailey

Dear Sweet Laura,

You will be sorely missed by the many people you touched during your life and by those who loved you and cared about you. You had a beautiful, infectious smile and you always brought a ray of sunshine with you everywhere you went. You were fun, and silly, and youthful, and you loved life, your family, your friends, and your man, Mr. Bill. My father once told me that a full life is neither long nor short. I believe you left this life full of love and well-lived to the fullest that you possibly could. I know you have peace, and I know we shall meet again. With Love, Linda & Manny
(Dr. Manuel F. Zamora & Linda Ramos Zamora)

I worked with Laura in the Office of Inspector General while she was at the Houston Police Department. She was a very sweet person and had the kindest heart! She loved her family to the fullest and talked about them a lot, especially her brother and parents. She was full of life and I was so happy for her when she married Bill - that made her complete. Thanks to Bill for taking care of her and giving her the life she deserved. What a wonderful woman she was and she will be missed!!! My prayers go out to the family.

God saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be
So he put His arms around you
And whispered "Come to me."

With tearful eyes we watched you
As you slowly slipped away
And though we loved you dearly
We couldn't make you stay.

Your golden heart stopped beating
Your tired hands put to rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
