Laura was always a ray of sunshine. We grew up in the St. Jerome community where Elizabeth was the CCD administrator at the time. I can't remember Laura without a smile, and I am sure that same beautiful smile is plastered all over Heaven today. But it is with great warmth and love I send to Andrew, Elizabeth. Bill and Paul. Thank you for sharing her with us and with the world. Know that we are all thinking of you, and I. at least, want to share my sincere gratitude to you for giving me such a wonderful friend in Laura. God Bless you all always and forever. - Brent

My prayers are with Laura's family and for Laura.
I remember her well when she was a student at St. Louis School.

Dearest Sherry Family,
My heart broke when I heard the news of Laura's passing. We were household sisters, close friends, and roommates during her time at Franciscan University. I have so many beautiful memories of her and our adventures together. She spent one summer with my family in Omaha and I was blessed to be a part of her wedding. Over the years we didn't keep in touch as much as we should have, but I always checked in to see what she was up to on social media. You are all in my thoughts and especially my prayers. God bless you all... Jen (Supie)

My sincere condolences to you all in the loss of Laura. She was a very bright beautiful soul when I got to know her recently. Andrew is a reflection of her. My heart goes out to Andrew in the loss of his mother. Joseph and I will be keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.
