    What comes to my mind when I think of Laura is a smile and laughter,just like her mother, and just like her grandmother.My last time to visit with Laura was at her Mothers birthday party in July. It was a joyous occasion. She will be missed. I love you all.

    Laura’s gift of hostessing was such a blessing to us. She always came around to hug us! We were so drawn to her sweet and gentle Spirit and she always made us feel like family. We are so thankful we got to talk with her and give her a big hug on Valentine’s Day! She will be greatly missed.

  • Ann Peters Posted March 2, 2018 5:35 PM

    Laura was always smiling and so pleasant to be around. She never had a bad day. We are really going to miss her at Saddle Creek. We’ll be praying for the family.

    To the entire family of Laura, parents, son, aunt, friends and Saddle Creek co-workers, my heart go out to all of you. I just found out last night about this sweet soul going on to be with the Lord…I was so saddened as I left Saddle Creek last night. Laura is remembered by me and my husband John as the light that greeted us each visit. She would give me that sweet hug and lean her head on me, as she was shorted than I was. We laughed and hugged and caught up each time we saw her. She will be greatly missed, but to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord! I will see you one day I hope in glory Laura. Peace to you and your family.

    I do want to say thank you for syour condolences and I want to say me being her son. Even though there is a time for everything does not make this any easier. Me reading the comments about remembering the happiness she maintained and kept that is one thing that has left and embedded in us so much that she has made us remember. I will say all the things she endured she is a trooper considering that.
