I want to offer my heartfelt sympathy to the family on the passing of Laura. May the warm and precious memories
you have of her give you some comfort during this difficult time. Also, pray to God for help so that he can provide
peace and comfort for you. Revelation 21:4 points to the time when sickness and death will be no more. Those who
have died will be resurrected. (Acts 24:15) I hope these wonderful promises from God help you to cope with
your loss of Laura.

I met Laura at Baruch Helpline in 1980. We shared many good times with our family of friends from Baruch. From her many Halloween parties at her home in college point. To the Helpline weekends, to working on Helpline together and all those nights at Coopers Ale house. Also, I had the privilege to caring for her son Timothy when she went back to work for 6 months when he was a baby. We did so many fun things together with our large group of friends from Help line. I will recall memories I can remember to honor her life. I was blessed to be her friend. My heartfelt wishes to all her family who are grieving at this time. She will never be forgotten. Love to you all
