My condolences to Laura Waters family, friends, and church associates. She seems to have led a life of truly sharing and giving. May she rest in peace in her heavenly home.
You and your smile will be greatly missed at the volleyball matches in Mountain Home.
It was such a joy to speak with Laura when we would run into each other at the Elks. I also welcomed her smile and wave at the 4 pm Mass on Saturday evenings. May Laura rest in peace and live in eternal light and love.
I am sorry to hear that my niece and dear friend had passed. I am sure that there is joy in Heaven as she joins her family there. We will all miss her until we also rejoin her there.
Laura was my dear first cousin, with whom I spent summers and Christmases for many years. I loved her very much, and I will miss her greatly.
Laura’s love for our Lord, our church as well as her family shined through her. She was always such a joy to talk to and I loved hearing about the trips you two shared. May our Father bless you with the peace and comfort you need at this time.
Rest now, my friend in peace and joy forever. So sorry for your loss, John.
