  4. My sincere condolences for this loss – I came to know Mrs. Laboret as a friend of her son, Darrell, many years ago, and she was simply one of the nicest people I ever met. And I found her vibrant and active nature through her senior years to be so inspiring, and a model for how I now want to age. My best wishes to the family.

    Our Prayers go out to all of you. Maria was such a fine lady we have missed you and the girls. It was such a pleasure watching all the love that was shown at mass at St.Gerards I know the beautiful memories will carry on and will help to keep her close. I would like to be there to help celebrate her life but I just got out of the hospital and I’m not sure. Take care. God Bless Liz(we always sat behind you in church)
