  1. We have very fond memories of your mom. Andy remembers staying with your mom and dad when he was a teenager to help out on the farm. He used to laugh because Laurie wasn’t a great cook back then but she always kept him fed and took good care of him. When your mom lived right across from the high school, we used to go over and visit her in between classes (and sometimes during class lol). We had a lot of good times together. We are so sorry for your loss.

  2. Vaarwel Laurie

  3. My condolences to the Family. I worked with her in Brooks at the Safeway Bakery. Once I got to know her she was a great Friend.
