Hi there Bug, I'm missing you every minute of every day since you left us! I know that you are fine now, and feeling no pain. That is my greatest blessing today, knowing that you are no longer suffering. There will be no Thanksgiving or Christmas without you Sweetie! Couldn't imagine it. I love you so much, and I'll miss all of you, your laugh, your smile, the touch of your hand, and your sweet kisses on my cheek. You're my Sweetheart Niece, and I'll love and miss you forever! My Bug! So sad here!

Laura... I had the pleasure of working with you for a little while and in that time, you showed be your heart. You were there for me when my mom passed away and you made things better. I will remember our laughs and mostly our conversations, just about life. Walk those streets of Gold my friend. I will see you one day.

With you in my life I forgot everything in my past. You are the answers to all of my questions. You are the answer to all of my prayers. You are the final destination of my last journey. You are The End Of all my hopes. You are... The sun. The ocean. The waves. The sand. The palms. My paradise. Your the Eternal Flame. The fire that burns my soul. My Hot Passion. You are the water that gives me life. You are the essence of love and romance. My great longing. Sweetheart... You meant the world to me. I Love You!!!!

Laura was 'my favorite teenager' growing up. I looked up to her and always wanted to be like her! She used to rub my tummy when I was little and sing to me. I was always amazed that she knew all of the lyrics to every song. She taught Me and Ryan how to color the way that she liked to color and I still color the same way to this day lol. She's taught me a lot! We have so many amazing memories together that I will cherish forever. I feel so lucky and blessed that I got to be apart of her life. Laura was so beautiful, loving, thoughtful, fun, selfless, caring and always worried about taking care of others. It's heartbreaking that she had to leave us so soon. She fought so hard for so long. It is comforting to know that she isn't suffering anymore and that she's up in heaven with her Dad, Papaw, kayla, uncle George and so many of our loved ones even though we will miss her more than anything. She is the strongest person I know and I cannot wait till the day I get to see her again!! Love, her Stephy

I had the privilege to care for Laura for a total of about 15 hours. During that time, I learned so much about what a beautiful soul she was . Even in her last days she was absolutely beautiful, kind, caring and thankful. She really had an impact on my heart. I was so sad to hear of her passing but I am so glad she isn't in the tremendous amount of pain she was in, anymore. My deepest condolences go out to her family, especially her husband Ryan and Aunt Gina and her doggy Chief.

I had the privilege of meeting Laura when I worked at Healing Inspirations Center. She was such a beautiful soul that lit-up the room with her gorgeous smile. She had her good and bad days like all of us, but she was incredibly strong in the battle she faced. No matter how bad she felt, she was always so positive, helpful and encouraging to everyone else and shared anything she learned that could help others. It was such a blessing that she was able to spend her last days on Earth with her wonderful, supportive husband, Ryan; as everyone knows, the love of her life. Not everyone gets to say their last, difficult goodbyes, so give thanks when you're given the opportunity to do so. Laura and I would "re-charge" each other with a big hug when she'd leave the center and she gave the best hugs! Someday we'll hug again, but until then, she'll shine her light of love down on all of us with Jesus by her side. Until then, Sweetness! I love you and am so blessed to have known you, even though the time was short. Love, hugs and prayers to Ryan, family and friends.

Ryan, you were her Ry guy, she loved you so much One of the last memories I have of Laura waa precious. We unexpectedly ran into each one day, and she had just came back from treatment at OHC. We talked, hugged and cryed, it just seemed so hard to part. We could've of went on forever. When we realized what time it was, Laura said oh no my Ry will be home soon. I smiled and hugged her and I said Laura you really love your Ry don't you. Laura just looked at me and smiled and kind of laughed. I told every other sentence was about Ry and she just glowed with love... So precious I know Laura loved you so much that she would want her Ry guy to be ok

Ryan and Family, my heart breaks for your loss. I have prayed for you and Laura for a long time now, often asking the Lord to show Laura His glory, no matter what the outcome may be. I am comforted that He is showing her His glory in Heaven now. May the God of all comfort and peace wrap you in His loving arms and surround you with a calmness of spirit, knowing that His presence is with you ALWAYS! Love, hugs, and prayers for you, our family, and Laura's extended family. I love you, Ryan!!!
