Donna & Mike: So sorry to read about Laura's passing! I am saying prayers for you and your family at this sad time. I am out of town at a niece's wedding and won't be back until Wednesday after the funeral. So sorry I couldn't make it to the visitation but will try to see if Joe feels like going. Take care and remembering you and your family in thoughts and prayers. Wanda

Laura was a very special lady and will be missed by her friends and family. I enjoyed working with her at the Leisure Lounge for many years.
