    I spoke to you a week ago. You told me you were fine and you laughed as always. I told you I was on my way to see you in a few days. You promised I wouldn’t recognize you. I told you I would recognize that laugh and smile anywhere. You are the strongest person I know. You laughed more than anyone I know, no matter what was going on. You taught me so much about friendship, family and love for ones children. Honesty. Integrity. Trust. Faith. I’ll miss those random text messages at odd hours of the day. I’ll take comfort that you are in good hands now. I’m sorry mine weren’t always big enough to help carry you when you needed it. I look forward to seeing you again one day my friend. Take care hun. Love you.

  10. In our lives for too short of a time . . . in our hearts forever!

    Laura-Lie,
    Your smiling face, the sparkle in your eyes, your infectious laugh, your ever positive attitude, your love for your family and friends, your love for life in general, your great jokes (and the not so great ones too), your second to none work ethic, your desire to help others even when you were going through tough times, your ability to make anybody smile even if they thought they didn’t want to, your emails on Saturday mornings asking what I was doing at work when you shouldn’t have been working either, . . . these are just some of the things missing from this world since you have moved on.

    I know you are looking down on all of us today, and being the extremely strong person you are, continue to want to take care of everyone. I hope you are basking in all of the wonderful things people are saying about you – – you deserve all of this praise and so much more! You have inspired and taught us all so much in your short time here. Now it is our turn to take what you have taught us and continue to make this world a better place.

    John, Bill, family & friends – my thoughts and prayers are with you. You had an amazing mom / sister / daughter and friend. Even though this is a really sad time, I just can’t help but smile each time I think of her.

    I am going to miss you hun. Love you lots!

    Bill, John and Family, Please accept my most heartfelt sympathies for your loss. My thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time.

    Bill and John, your mom was a very special woman who was truly loved by everyone fortunate enough to know her. Her passing leaves a huge void in all our lives, including the print and envelope industry where she was highly respected and admired by co-workers, friends and clients alike. It goes with out saying her never-ending dedication, superior customer service skills, selfless nature and commitment to her clients is something most would only hope to attain.

    Laura-Lie, your passing leaves me with a heavy heart. I will always remember your special smile, infectious laugh, all the giggles and great stories we shared, positive attitude, face lighting up when you spoke about your boys and your special talent for lighting up any room you entered. I will hold your memory close to my heart and when I see a bright shining star in the sky, it will remind me of special memories of you. I will miss you hun. With all my love.
