    I’m so sorry for your loss. Praying the God of all comfort helps you at this difficult time. (2Corinthians 1:3,4 & Psalms 83:18). Jesus told us to pray for God’s Kingdom because the Bible promises it will end tears pain and death. (Revelation 21:3-5 & Daniel 2:44).

    Laurie was a bright light in the lives of those who knew her. She was always there for everyone and her loss will affect many lives. She was the baby in the family and loved being the youngest.. I know she has found peace in the arms of the Lord and is with her beloved extended family in heaven. I will miss her so much.
