Dear Paul, My deepest condolences to you, Jennifer, Kaitlyn and family. I have no words to tell you how Laura will be missed. From the day she and I met in September 1963, she's always been there, a strong presence. I have faith that she is now a strong presence with family who have gone before her and with God. Hugs to you all and prayers for strength. Love, Gail
