    I have known Laure for most of my life through my mom Sandy and Aunt Ruth. I was honored to have her marry my husband and I 13 years ago. Many of her lessons she taught us in our counseling with her we still apply today and without them I don’t know where we would be. We love you so much Laure, Heaven got one of the best angels when they came for you. You will be missed so much by everyone who’s lives you touched. Ours especially.
