Dear Laura,
I do not know if I have ever met a more endearing soul. From the moment we got to have our real first conversation I knew that you would be a part of my life even when our meetings were over. Most times in life when you meet someone with an attitude like yours it is hard to pass through life without that very attitude making an impression on your actions and decisions. You are one of two of my role models and not just for fighting the good fight of cancer with a positive attitude. You are my role model for living, and you lived so beautifully. Gracefully, you walk in with courage and a natural beauty from inside. To think I just wanted to meet because I admired your hair. There was so much more for me to learn than how you stylishly quaff your blonde Mohawk into place. Sometimes it is hard to explain when you have truly been inspired through words, poetry, maybe even art, but a true inspiration lives through a person's eyes and smile. I used to suffer from depression but I noticed my crutch made by fear and overcame it thanks to you. Your bright personality kept me from ever complaining and kept me going through my toughest times long after we parted. You were an angel in disguise and I will always remember you.

I met Laura in one of my classes, sophomore year of college. She plopped down every day with a green pen and a blonde pixie sometimes flowing, sometimes stiff. I noticed her apart from everyone's melancholy face in the room including my own. In one of my other classes I was assigned a case study specifically requiring me to explore the details of a stranger's life. Instead of using one of my friends that I'd pretend to not know, I took the assignment very seriously. It was almost imperative in my heart that I did so. I sat and had a thought or two and decided to find the girl with the blonde pixie. I searched on Facebook for a little while until I came across a picture of her and a mutual friend of mine and ended up messaging her that same day. She agreed to meet with me after hearing only a few details of my bargain which was to basically write a paper about her life, and we met a few days later at school. Here she told me all about her life, not reluctantly but trusting as if she had known I came from a pure position. She had cancer, right at this very moment, and I did not even know. Her blonde pixie was a result of chemotherapy, repetitive chemotherapy in fact. She had been diagnosed with cancer when she was fifteen and seven years later she had went through two relapses and diagnoses in four areas. That poor girl, I thought. But by the end of our third meeting filled with the exchange of stories and the purchases of coffee and chicken nuggets in our school's student center, I felt like I knew every detail of her life. She was so happy and just talking to her I felt happier, not because of her situation but merely because of her demeanor. When I left I felt more fulfilled. Existing, enjoying, appreciating, and feeling the simple joy I felt in that moment. That was living, and she had done that for me . I will never forget her.

Dear Gene and family of Laura -

We never realized that Laura had received the Blake Kuller Indomitable Spirit Award from MAW. Blake was our son, and reading about Laura touched my heart. I see that it has been just over a year since she passed. I'm sure Blake greeted her when she got to heaven! She sounds like a wonderful young lady. I'm sure you're very proud of her.

Sincerely, Allison Kuller

I wished you a happy birthday but forgot to put my name; I know you knew who it was from, though!

Love, Aunt Kathy
