"O' dearest Laurie, if the dead can come back to this earth...unseen around those they loved, I shall always know you are near in the gladdest days and darkest nights…Always. Always. And if there be a soft breeze upon my cheek, it shall be your sweet kiss, it shall be your spirit passing me by. Laurie, I shall mourn, but think that you will wait for me, for we will meet again, love. Always. Always."
Cremation rites have been accorded and a memorial service will be held on Thursday, December 6, 2018, at 7 p.m. at Lenz Memorial Home in Lacon, with Keith Haun officiating.
