  10. It is with great sadness and deepest heart felt sympathy to Laura’s family and many friends to hear of her passing. She was the kindest person I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She was a great friend at work and outside of the workplace. Always with a smile willing to go that extra mile to help where ever she could. She was always there to talk to. Never shy to give her truthful heartfelt opinions. She was honest caring fun and loved her family dearly. Her friendship meant so much to me. She will be greatly missed. I so wish we would have had that lunch together Laura, that we so often spoke of my friend.
    I have truly lost a friend, while heaven gained an angel.
