I am so sorry for your loss of Lauri. We worked together at the Record-Argus many years ago. We stayed in touch over the years. Today I wrote out a belated birthday card to your mom, only to see on Facebook someone had wished her "Happy Birthday in Heaven." :( I have been sad all day. Lauri was a good person who loved her family very much. You all have my deepest sympathy.

Dear family:. I am deeply saddened to hear of Laurie's passing - you have my utmost sympathies. I knew Laurie from church and helping at Santa's Workshop at Oakview. I also lived on Canon Road for many years.
