Sorry to read of Laura’s passing. We’ve been friends since Junior High 9th grade home economics class with Mrs Zinn. We sat at the same table, made biscuits & an apron. She was a really fine friend.

My dear dear best friend of 60 years. I can’t believe you are gone. You were more like my sister than just a friend. And there is no family like the family we choose. Rest in heavenly peace. The last words we said to each other were “love you”. That gives me some comfort.

So sorry for your loss. I worked with Laura for many years at Moorman’s and enjoyed catching up with her when we were able to attend the 49’ers brunches. She was a wonderful person and I will miss her.
