Not sure what to say?

Ms. Laws taught me in fourth grade and was such a dynamic teacher in my growing process. She was such a powerful influence into the continual shaping of my life; even that young! I wish I'd known a way to contact her before so I could tell her how wonderful of a teacher she was. I prefer giving someone their congrats and celebrate them while they're here on Earth. Sorry for the missed opportunity. K.Noil

One of the best teachers we had at Livonia. She made history challenging, but interesting. She always pushed us to be our best. I have talked about her often over the years to my kids and others. Dedicated, inspiring and unforgettable.

Mrs. Laws was a wonderful history teacher, mentor and role model for the many students she taught. She was loved by all of us. My prayers and love go out to the family. Praying for Gods peace and comfort for all of you.

In loving memory of a wonderful cousin. We will love you and miss you always. My grandmother was her Aunt. Uncle Joe was my favorite great uncle. My dad was Lovance ka

Mrs. Laws was one of the very best. I can hear her laugh right now. :-) She could be tough when necessary but she was so wise and honest and I knew that she cared for us deeply. She definitely made a difference in my life and I love her and remember her always. We were blessed to have her teach us about history and about life. My deepest sympathy goes out to Eldrick and all her family. LHS Class of 1980.

Mrs. Laws was one of my best teacher at Livonia High, May she RIP LHS class of 82

To a great teacher and friend who made me discover wonderful things about myself that may not have materialized. She taught me with perseverance anything is possible. Even though I was not in the BETA Club she brought me on many trips to places I would not have gotten to see as a teenager. That's the kind of person she was!
Rest in peace, but only for a little while. I know there are many things for you to see in heaven.
