    Dear Aunt Anne, Chris, Leo, Elise, Julie, Paula, Dan and Nicholas
    We want to extend our sincere condolences to all of you. Laura was such a sweet, loving and beautiful person who was a joy to be around. She always remembered everyone and always cared to know how everyone was doing. Her smile and laugh brought a smile to everyone around her. I still remember the final line of my speech that I wrote about her in grade 5. "Laura may never be a doctor or a nurse but she will learn a craft or a trade and give a lot of love." She enjoyed working with children and she certainly gave a lot of love. She taught us all so much about love and acceptance. We will truly miss her. Laura and all of you will be in our thoughts and prayers.
    Love and prayers,
    Lisa, Charles Jeremy, Elsa and Alisha
