Laurie was a beautiful young 44 year old. She was so giving of herself and her time. Forgiveness was her middle name. Her children and her home were her life. She was a loving sister and wonderful aunt. Always wanting to have fun, with her Halloween parties, Christmas parties, and more were her speciality. Happiness was what she stived for. Not just her family but with all she came in touch with. Her taco salad were always the most requested family gathering item (after her laugh and smile).
