Christine:
I am deeply sorry to learn of Laura’s sudden passing. She was such a wonderful person, always so up beat and positive. I used to enjoy the little chats we would have at work, she always left me smiling. Please accept my sincere condolences and know that you and your family are in my thoughts.

So heartbroken. Love to Clyde and Timothy and all Laura’s family. She was one of my favourite people. I am away and can’t make her service. Thinking of her constantly. Way, way too soon.

From a young age, we loved being around Aunt Laura. She had a way of making us feel special – as if we were the most important people in the room – and always asked the best questions! Her profound love & curiosity of life, and endless positivity have left a lasting impression on us. She is so very loved and adored – and will remain close in our hearts forever. All our love and deepest condolences…

We just heard of Laura’s sudden passing, having no idea that she was ill. We will always remember her kind and cheerful demeanour, especially her particular love and kindness with children and her true compassion for others. She was always genuinely happy to see you and, without fail, talking to her was always a bright and positive moment in one’s day. Our deepest sympathies to Tim and Clyde.
