    Ross, Zander & Claire,

    On behalf of the family I would like to express our deepest sympathy for your loss. We are heartbroken. Shelly was an amazing woman and mother who made an impact everywhere she went. Whether it was backstage at the school musical, chaperoning school dances or making sure we had healthy snacks when the entire neighbourhood of kids hung out in your basement Shelly never failed to have a warm smile on her face. She was a very special woman and will have a place in all of our hearts.

    Words fall short of expressing our sorrow for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
    Still shocked and disbelief, we are very saddened to hear that Mrs. Laurie has passed away.
    She was a gem full of kindness and joy who made hundreds of Dr. J. K Mulloy students to start the morning with smile, her hugs were genuine and her inspirational wisdom words carried loved and compassion for both parents and students.
    Mrs. Laurie, thank you for all your tremendous love and delight you will be missed.

Our love and prayers are with you at this time of great loss. Love from Kathy and Emily Morales

    Dear Ross, Zander and Claire
    We are so very sorry to hear of your loss. I can not tell you how often I looked forward to Shelley’s lovely smile whenever we would bump into each other at school or volunteering in the classroom. She was such a kind, loving and welcoming person only too eager to share her stories of each of you and listen to mine (or just share our amazement at just how cold one of those quinzee camping trips must have been or the fact that she really never would join us for a karate class). I’m so sorry your beautiful time together was far too short. Our love, prayers and heart are with each of you.
