Margaret & Billy, Randy, Stephanie and Julianna: Again, I am so sorry about Laurie. I know she was a wonderful person. I'm sorry I didn't have a chance to get to know her better. Love, Cousin Virginia Aikman McCartney
Dear Randy, Stephanie, and Julianna I was so sorry to hear of Laurie's passing.
She was such a wonderful wife and mother. I know you are comforted by the certainty that she is in heaven with her Lord. She will be missed by many. Your family is in our prayers.
From the time Greg and I received communication from Perry, we began to pray for you and your family. We didn't and still don't know how to sufficiently express our sympathy and concern. May your memories bring you comfort.
Dear Margaret and Bill, we wish there were words and deeds to minimize the sadness of losing your lovely daughter. We did not know Laurie Ann but can easily see she was your joy and that she will be missed everyday. We hope you can find strength in knowing she was loved by so many and the wonderful memories you have of her. Sincerely, Marshall and Thom Hall
Laurie's nieces Morgan and Macy Fritz and her nephew Chase Fritz will miss their Aunt Laurie very much. Growing up in the same area, they were around Laurie often. They remember fun trips to the park, to the swimming pool, eating out and going out for ice cream They could always count on Aunt Laurie for delicious chocolate baked goods at family gatherings.
When Macy Fritz was born and again during her heart surgery, Laurie stepped in as usual and kept Morgan and Chase for days on end. Morgan and Chase loved staying at Aunt Laurie's house and often wondered if they could just live over there. One night during one of their sleepovers with Julianna and Stephanie, Aunt Laurie got all the kids in the car at 11:00 at night to go get ice cream sundaes at Sonic! Aunt Laurie even took Morgan to her first concert, The Jonas Brothers! Laurie was always supportive of Morgan , Chase and Macy and was always genuinely proud of their accomplishments.
We all have such fond memories of Laurie and we already miss her so much.She was always wise beyond her years and gave me wonderful advice which I always followed. I just want to call her on the phone right now to tell her of the details of the past weekend because I know she would want to hear all the scoop on the friends and family!
Dear Randy, Stephanie, and Julianna,
We were all very sad to hear about Laurie losing her battle with cancer. We will miss her and be sure to include you guys in any future Mom's Group meetings. May God let you find peace, as we are sure He has already let her find. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Love from us to you,
Beth, Ed, Rachael, Erin, Joel Swiatek
Julianna, Stephanie and Randy this is the Groos Family. We learned of your Mom's passing and joining her Lord today in church.
We love each of you. We always have. And for me, (Cathy) your Mom and I just 'got' each other and she could make me laugh like no one else.
Our most blessed gift from the Discovery School was the Fritz Family being introduced into our lives.
All our love,
Cathy, Dave, Courtney and Travis Groos
I met Laurie 10 years ago as we both met going thru breast cancer treatment. I did not know she had a reoccurence and was truly shocked by her passing. Laurie was such a wonderful person with a sweet caring spirit and my prayers go out to her family.
Dear Randy, Stephanie and Julianna,
I was so saddened to hear of your wife/mother's passing. I can only imagine the heartache you feel in your loss, but know you are comforted by God's promise of eternal life with Him and knowing in time you will spend eternity with her, all your loved ones and Jesus! Hallelujah that her heavenly body is perfectly restored and she is now in peace. What amazing fruit: selflessness, humbleness, gentleness, kindness and grace Laurie had ...It was so apparent that God and her sweet family were the love of her life. Praying for comfort, strength and peace for you all to persevere and thrive as she would so want to see you do! Love to you all!
Margaret and Bill and all the family--I am thinking of you with deepest sympathy. May you find comfort and peace in your many wonderful memories of Laurie.
Margaret, I was saddened to hear of the death of your daughter after her struggle with breast cancer. I know how difficult it is to lose a child - no matter what age. Please accept my deepest sympathy. Ann
Randy, Stephanie, and Julieanna,
I can't tell you how much Laurie meant to me. She was one of my dearest friends. I will so miss her, but I have such wonderful memories that I will always treasure. I will always think of her when eating at Taco Delight and getting a root beer! I could always count on her to know where the best deal was or where I could find that special something that I was looking for. She was the one I would call if I needed someone to talk to. She was a very special friend. I love you all!
Margaret, I remember your daughter's early bout with cancer and remember your strength and support. You were fortunate to have each other and your families . Mourn as you must and then cherish the wonderful memories. You are in my prayers as you comfort each other. Fondly, julie

Margaret and Bill, Our hearts are heavy with sadness for your loss. Laurie's time on earth seems far too short but we feel grateful for her life. She showed us a wonderful mother/daughter relationship; how to hook-em horns, and Bill's devotion for bringing his college daughter, fresh donuts. This child of God will be greatly missed. And as your godchildren would say, ' Group Hug'
Randy, Stephanie, and Julianna, peace to you. May the love of family surround you.
Blessings to you all, The O'Donnell Family

Randy, Stephanie and Julianna,
I was so sorry to hear about Laurie's passing. She fought her battle with such strength and courage, she was an inspiration to everyone she came in contact with. I have many wonderful memories of Laurie. When you all came to Prince of Peace, I so enjoyed getting to know her. I specifically remember the two of us chaperoning Kati and Julianna's 5th grade field trip to Houston. On the bus for many hours with all those kids, we talked endessly about our kids and our families. The one thing that always struck me about Laurie was her dedication and commitment as a mom. There was nothing more important to her than her precious girls and her husband.
Julianna, your house was always Kati's favorite to hang out at because of the peace that was always evident in your home and your mom's awesome cooking and baking. She will never forget that. Juliana and Stephanie, you were blessed with an incredible mom and I know she is so proud of both of you.
I will be keeping all of you in my prayers in the coming days, weeks and months ahead. May you find comfort in knowing Laurie is free from her pain and at peace with our Heavenly Father.
I sadly am not able to attend her service on Saturday because I have to attend a relative's funeral in another city but please be assured you all will remain in my prayers.
Margaret and Bill, I am truly sorry that Laurie lost this battle but pray that she is at peace now and free of pain and discomfort. Please know that we will be thinking of you this week and hope to get to Dallas to see you soon. Dorothy
Dear Randy, Stephanie, and Julianna, My thoughts and prayers are with you during this very sad time. Laurie was a beautiful and special person, and I have many wonderful memories of her in our Moms Group. We shared laughter, talked endlessly about our children and enjoyed many wonderful meals during our playgroup, and mom's night gatherings. I have several recipes handwritten by Laurie and I will think of her and remember her every single time I come across them in my recipe books. With heartfelt sympathy to all of your family, Elaine, Dan, Jessica, Chelsea, and Sara Cline
Margaret and Bill,
I was saddened to hear of Laurie passing. I will keep you and the family lifted up in prayer.
