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 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.

    I am here reading about Laura and seeing the pictures for the first time since her passing, thankful that Laura Jean Hallock is still "posted". I would have not wanted to miss this. While it was many years since I last saw Laura as a child and some years since my husband, Harry, and I last saw her, we always could count on Laura remembering Harry's birthday, Christmas Eve. I saw Laura as a child and young adult before my marriage in 1973. She was so full of energy and joy. I very much enjoyed her company. It is very special to see the comments from her family who knew Laura better than I. What a blessing she was and was a blessed family she has who took such good care of her. I guess one could say her love for her family and others brought out the best in each of them...all the time done in love. God Bless, Florence, my mom's, Effie Andrea Hunter Larsen, first cousin and her daughters, Karen and Linda, and their families.

    Although distance and time made my trips to Florida fewer than I would have liked, Mom always kept my informed of the latest news from Florida and I especially smiled to myself when she would talk about Laura. Laura was of the purest spirit and so enjoyed when everyone else was having fun. I very much enjoyed our times together, although be them brief in the grand scheme of her life. She was always up for a good joke, whether she played it on someone else, or whether someone else played it on her. Her smile and laugh were infectious and her zest for life unmatched. Fiercely protective of her sisters, yet she would be the first to call them out if she felt something should have gone "her way". Now I'm forced to inflict my humor on Karen and Linda! Laura accomplished more in her life than 100+ other people put together. What a life and what an incredible human being that I am honored to call my cousin. I miss you!

    Your best "Wise Guy",
    Cousin Rob
