Laura certainly was a blessing to everyone, whose lives she touched. We could all learn from her unconditional love, her "Oh Boy!" enthusiasm, and her caring, thoughtful, loving heart. She certainly was a "social butterfly" and wanted everyone to have a good time and be happy. She'd be just as excited watching someone else open a gift or do something fun. Laura realized much more than many people would think...she was sharp, clever, and strong-willed. She enjoyed running, swimming, and shooting hoops - even running in the Special Olympics when she was quite young...while laughing the entire time! She enjoyed vacations with her family...traveling by car, plane, train, and ship. She visited all the eastern states from Florida to Maine, Colorado, many Caribbean islands, Mexico, and South America. Laura was quite fond of music and dancing...often dancing with everyone at wedding receptions. And, after countless trips to the 4 Disney, 2 Universal, Busch Gardens, and SeaWorld theme parks, she could have been a tour-guide at all. Cinderella was her favorite princess. When many people would shudder just looking at the huge, winding roller-coasters, Laura would brave them all. Her remarkable memory of birthdays was a gift. How she enjoyed making cards for everyone...personalizing each one with such patience. She was quite talented...her ability to read & write often amazed us - her penmanship and coloring were beautiful. Laura had a good sense of humor and gave us many laughs, together. She often wrote little notes and left them about the house...in addition to cutting out Chuck E. Cheese's coupons for nephew, Eric - hint...hint. Laura loved going to work with her sister, Karen, during her periodic visits and was made to feel like a productive member of the office team, who often referred to her as being "a delight...a breath of fresh air." She had her own desk there, in addition to having her artwork displayed upon a wall. We'll continue to cherish ALL the wonderful and fun memories of Laura! She was a lover of people and life, who certainly enriched all of OUR lives - making them even more "complete". A close friend commented that Laura knew how much she was loved, since her smile clearly showed it.
