Dear Karen and Holland family, I am so sorry to hear about Laura. I remember her in high school as being such a happy, confident and beautiful spirit. May God comfort you all. Lori Berkes-Nelson

Laura was a true beauty. Wonderful looking and a fabulous personality. She should have been chosen girl with the most beautiful smile in the '76 Barbs yearbook. She got my vote. At least she lived a full and fantastic life. I have nothing but fond memories of Laura. I am sure her family will find comfort in those same reasons.

Thank you for your kind words,thoughts,and prayers. We are going to miss Laura terribly and it really helps us all to read these kind messages. I hope all is well in corn country...we were telling funny stories about working for the Ag the other night and sharing memories. Steve Irving, I still have ring scars around my ankles from sweat and cement getting in my boots when we stayed up all night trying to finish a foundation you poured too wet! I remember the tennis court well, and also a really terrible swimming pool job we did. Please feel free to tell some funny stories....that's what we are doing and what Laura would want! Like when Laura and Nancy's horses jumped the fence at Oberlin's Nursery and ran down the 6th fairway at KCC, or her unique (weird?) prom dresses, or the fact that she would not swim the butterfly stroke on the swim team because she didn't want her shoulders to get big.

Sincerely,
Rick Holland, and all the Hollands and Smiths.

I fondly remember the entire Holland family. Al and Rick each worked for me and building your family tennis court was one of my first building projects. i recently had a sister and brother pass away way to soon and it is just unfair. I remember your sister Laura as a real energetic person with a "Great holland personality". My thoughts are with her and your entire family. Sincerely, Steve Irving
