I miss you so much, Laura. I'm sure you are having such a great time with Mom, Pop, and Ray, as well as others we know who are with you. I think of your laugh and it makes me smile every time. We'll be with you again and you can show us all your favorite places in heaven. Until that day comes, just know that you are loved abundantly and could never be forgotten (it's not possible!!!). Larry and I talk about you all the time and smile (thru tears) when we do. We truly love you.

I miss you little sister … but when I do think of you, which is at least once a day, it always puts a smile on my face. You were a great sister and we did have lots of laughter and great times. I wish those times were still happening but God had other plans and at least I know I'll be seeing you again and that makes not having you here a little easier. I love you Lorsk!

Hi Laura, I miss you a lot. I am going to see Karen at Faux next Friday. I know you will be there in spirit. Say hi to Ruth, Len and Ray for me. With Love, Bridge

Here’s note from Michele …

I have been thinking about Laura a lot in the past month or so. I have a black and white picture of her in my living room and my eyes have been drawn to it more and more lately. When I do look at it I, of course, talk to her. I miss her as much today as I did when she first left us. She was my little sister

Always miss you!!! Think about you year around! Thought of you when I saw P!NK; Thought of you when I eat at Hells Kitchen in Vegas, Though of you at Christmas time, and especially on your Birthday! Love you Laura, and you are never forgotten.

Laura, I'm certain that you know this but a reminder that your family is amazing. You were a beautiful role model mom.
Posted by Beth Batchelor on July 7, 2018
Hi Little Sister,
 Yesterday was hard. Well, every day is hard since your passing, but your birthdays as especially so. I think back on that day in 1965 and it is so vivid in my mind on what a beautiful summer day it was. Robbie calling from the hospital to tell me I had a little sister and how I'd have to wait until you came home to meet you (kids back then weren't allowed to visit patients).
 Finally, you came home on a rainy day and I sat in the easy chair for three or four hours just holding you and you changed my life forever!
Lawrence

We often think of the wonderful times we shared with Laura (esp summer days spent working together and our after work fun!), and it always brings us joy to think of her.

Hey, Boj

We were in the city last Saturday running errands , we dropped by a restaurant to grab a bite to eat, for some reason Agnes remembered that it was there that she had lunch with Laura and the kids when they came to visit NY. It was the last time she saw her.
A day later, it was my turn to have lunch with her. She and the kids dropped by the office and we had sandwiches in Au Bon Pain.

Well thanks for sharing this; it's always great to think of and remember Laura.

I trust you can see what you have to celebrate from her, as you watched your son graduate UT and you saw your daughter dressed up to a T.

I hope you're doing well and your life seems in place despite your wife being up in heaven....

Thanks again,
Ron

PS: For me, at least. it seems like it's been a very long 4 years....

Dr. Marcus sounds like a wonderful, compassionate man. It is hard to believe that four years have gone by so quickly and that Kyle has gone from graduating from Anderson to graduating from UT. I'm praying that the years are kind to you and will help you and your family heal.

Hi Joji,

I offer my prayers today in memory of Laura and for you, Kyle and Josette who have to carry on without her physical presence in your lives.

Soon, I will be marking the 8th year since Marinet's passing in July 2007. In many ways it it still feels like it just happened last week. But I know she is with me everywhere, just not physically.

I'd like to share a post I read on FB a few days ago. It's a nice read.
https://www.facebook.com/sheryl/posts/10155617891025177:0

Be well, my friend! My best to Kyle and Josette. Laura would be so proud with how you've raised them.

Still having a hard believing that Laura has been gone from us for 4 years. I think about her every day and talk to her a lot. What a gift Dr. Marcus gave you when he wrote you that note. It is not at all surprising to me, because even being as sick as she was, she was still able to touch people in her special way. I will love and miss her until my final day. 

Take care of yourself.

Take care,
