Guestbook

  1. Dear, sweet Laura. Your passing was such a shock. You were such a good friend to me when we were attending Robert E. Lee. You were such a quiet, mild mannered young lady, but had the self confidence of a lioness. You were such an inspiration to me. I reconnected with you through Facebook and enjoyed keeping up with you through the internet. Rest In Peace, Laura. I will miss you.

  2. Dearest Laura, How did we lose touch? Back in October 1980, you and I were two country bumpkins going to the big city (NYC) to see the leaves change color. Neither one of us had ever been out of Texas. I remember us trying to figure out the train schedule, the statue of Liberty, and why yellow was so popular in cars (really taxis). You were often at my mom’s house, made delicious pies and we rode on motorcycles one night. You were so kind, smart, and caring of your mom dad and brothers. I’m glad we reconnected when I moved back to SAT. Loved your Facebook posts and exchanging posts. You are in Jesus’ hands and he will make sure you are at Peace. You will be missed.
