I am shocked and deeply saddened to learn of Laura’s passing. I got to know Laura well when I worked at Outlook Point as the Director of Marketing. I had the pleasure of helping with her wedding to Steve. I came to love them both. Laura was a very strong and pragmatic person. I enjoyed her wit and admired her love of family. My late husband’s parents, June and JC Ellis were good friends of your parents. I also visited with you occasionally at Gosnell Nursing Home before COVID when I came out to see after JC’s cousin. Please know that I am so sorry for your loss. I wish I had known. I would’ve expressed my condolences much sooner.
So sorry to hear of Laura's passing. Much love to Sarah and Ross and his family.
Prayers with compassion for Sarah and family!! I absolutely adored Laura! I was blessed greatly every 6 months she had her dental cleaning! We had a ball reminiscing! I’m honored to have known such a lovely, strong, do what you have to under the circumstances lady!! Heaven is rejoicing as she is with her amazing daddy!! With most sincere love and prayers, Hygienist and loyal friend, Brenda H Hodge
