I worked at the Vets home and would order from the coffee shop often. I would always look forward to Laura’s smiling face and kindness. She was a blessing to me and so many others she touched.

Laura always had a smile on her face when she greeted people at the coffee shop. I enjoyed keeping in touch with her on Facebook after she retired from IVHQ. May you find peace in knowing that she is with our heavenly father.
