    Aunt Lauri was an amazing woman. Without her when my mom died i’m not sure I would have made it through. I loved her so much more than she ever knew. She may not have been blood family to me but I have always thought of her as family. I love you and will forever miss you. My prayers go out to everyone in her family.

    Just remembering a long time ago, two girls with a creek between them. I’m so glad we became friends. Some of my best memories came out of that friendship. You will be missed. But you had the greatest gift.. you loved and you were loved. And that stays here forever.

    Clyde – I’ll always remember the secretary at CCI/Nortel telling me about Lauri and how much she was taken by you. I was so happy to hear the “love story” of how you two finally got together and married. May the memories of your days together help with the grief you feel. My prayers are with everyone who knew Lauri and loved her.

    I’m so glad that I got to know Lauri as a wonderful friend, she was the most unselfish person I’ve ever met and always put the needs of others before herself, I loved her and will miss her dearly, my heartfelt prayers are with the family and may God grant them the peace that only He can give until that day we all look forward to. Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

    My dear sweet friend Lauri. I choose to remember the laughter and so many good times growing up next door to each other. Then as we grew older some wonderful months in Alabama.
    I love you and your family. Time away and distance will never change this.
    Till we meet again sweet friend ♥️
