My Dear Friend ..what do you say in times like these? It has taken me how long to even be able to write something. In passing the things we are left with are memories...you have left me with many. From the first day I met you, I think it was when Meg and Justin were in Kindergarten till the last time I gave you a hug and said "I'll see you when I come home" I will always remember the laughter,the compassion,the shoulder that was always there,not just for me but for all who knew and loved you. Safe journey my sisterfriend,Love you always, Danielle
Mark, Dylan, Meaghan, Dave & Karen -- my deepest and sincere sympathy to all. Laur's tremendous love of family was only one of her many traits. I will miss her smile and humor.
Our thoughts are with the family.
As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
berkshire hills scool misses you and always will we love you.your like the sunshine in our school
My heart goes out to everyone who Loved Laurie. She was a rare soul who gave out of the fullness of her Heart without any attachment to getting anything in return. That is how Laurie was to me. She so easily radiated kindness as well as humor. Laurie made our family dinner on more than one occasion when my mother was in the hospital or when my father died.
I saw Laurie about a month ago for the first time in several years. But it was as if I saw her yesterday. She embraced me with one of her signature hugs and filled up the room with joy. I felt blessed to see her one last time before her passing. And for me it has also been a lesson to Love and Cherish the ones who are dear to you..in every moment.
My prayers are with you all in this time of sorrow. Her light lives on in all those whose lives she touched.
Dave and Karen. I am so very sorry for your loss. please know you are in my thoughts everyday, As well as Meg, dylan & mark, she was a great person, the world will miss that smile.
love you all
Mark, Meaghan & Dylan, words can not even begin to express how shocked and saddened we were when we heard of Laurie's passing last week. To be sending this message is one of the hardest things to do. She was a great friend and to say that she is going to be missed is an understatement. She just a had a way about her. She had a glow, and was so full of energy and life. We had some pretty serious talks about our Dad's, losing them so early in our lives, and about her Mom as well. We also had talks where we would be in tears from laughing so hard. She was amazing and meant the world. Even though our hearts are broken and thoughts of her either put a smile on our faces or tears in our eyes, one thing is for certain. She is in Heaven and she is in God's arms. Her Dad and Mom were there to greet her. Always remember that this isn't goodbye because God told us that through our faith, that we will all be together again in Heaven when He calls us home. She will be there with her infectious smile and the beauty that is Laurie. We are here for you and your family whenever you need us.
To Laura's Family . . I am so saddened and shocked to hear of Laurie's sudden passing. She was always a bright light and friendly face when I went into the middle school. Our sons (both named Dylan) were in daycare together many years ago. Dylan . . I am so so sorry about your mom. Our prayers are with you all. Peace and blessings.
To the Buffoni - Selva Family, we are so sorry for the loss of Laurie. She was the sweetest person, so loving and caring. Our prayers are with you at this time.

We are so sorry for your loss and the loss we all share in losing Laurie. She was such a huge part of the spirit of Monument Valley and our children's lives there. I was always grateful for her kind, matter of fact, willingness to accept projects, mittens, forms, instruments, and stories of the urgent unexpected need. She knew all our children's names and which one we were talking about even before we launched into the saga of forgotten pieces of the day. Laurie will remain in our memories a huge part of our children's lives and I am extremely grateful. I am so sorry for your loss but I want you to know her touch will remain forever in the hearts of all of those she blessed with her love and support.
you've truly lit up so many life's in so many ways you will always be loved and everyday the sun shine's your smile will be shining threw it, sending love to everyone!!!!
