I met Laura in 1980 at the G.W. school in Ridgewood where I enjoyed her optimism, love for history, respect for students, and knew her as a caring person. We taught together at Ridgewood High School for several years and Laura's students were fortunate to have a caring teacher who enjoyed historical research and teaching. After I left Ridgewood for a position at Ramapo Indian Hills, we continued to stay connected through conferences and professional development programs. My deepest sympathies and prayers for comfort are with you. Laura had a deep faith and was filled with God's love in the way she loved her family and friends. Such a sad loss and yet such a gifted blessing to be part of Laura's professional life.
