    I went to high school with Laura. She was always so nice and it was very easy to be friends with her. I’m so sorry for your great loss.

    Doug, Taylor and Sydney,
    Had a blast growing up with Laura and her sister JoEllen. Playing our gutairs with the badmintons, eating sand, all the fun at the cottage and at each other’s houses. Can’t forget cherry picking and Aunt Burnedda saying pick a little more. The canning of beans…. Snapping the beans. Going fishing with Ed….. The classic….Uncle Don losing his swimming suit while water tobogganing.
    Laura has had many challenges in life now she is at peace walking on the streets of gold. She will truly be missed. The Welker Family.

    Pat my most sincere condolences to you and Laura’s family. I rode the school bus and went to school with all of you. Laura was always very kind. Her friends and family will miss her dearly. Cherish those very special memories and have peace.

    Curry family and McGuire family, what sad news to hear of Laura’s passing.

    I am glad Bob and I got to see her at the family reunion. She was so happy and had a big smile on her face. My words won’t bring her back, but we know she is in a better place with no problems. We are praying that God gives you peace. He knows when to call his children home and she needed to be in the choir. But on a happier note, one of these days we will all be reunited with our departed loved ones.

    Our deepest sympathy. Bob, Jutta, Rob, and Lisa Stocks

    I need to apologize to Laura’s family about spelling their name wrong. It’s Maguire and not McGuire. Please forgive me.
