I can’t believe I’m sitting here posting on your obituary..it only felt like the other day you stopped in the store to see me and tell me how you were doing! I went to message you on Facebook and seen a post about your passing! Laura you were such a warm, caring wonderful person who made everyone feel special! The way you talked so highly of your kids was outstanding and showed how proud you were of them! You made my massage session feel like a therapy session because you alway listened while I rambled on. I’m not sure how anyone will ever get over your passing!! You have touched so many with your kind hearted soul! You will forever be missed by Brad,Alisha and myself..until we meet again!! xo♥

Laura had such a beautiful heart, I am heartbroken. I met Laura as a masseuse, she leaves as a wonderful friend.
We went on a trip to Jamaica a few years back and had such a great time. We shared common values, a birthday, a birth hospital , born exactly one year apart.. we were kindred spirits.
To Mike and Allie, she loved you both so much, I feel I know you although we’ve never met.
Your grandmother must also be devastated.
Please include me in the celebration of life. I have some of her garden cuttings in my garden I will cherish them.
My sincere condolences.

I have such fond memories of Laura. We were classmates in massage school in 2002 and 2003. During break times, she and I would often sit and talk about life and relationships. She was always so warm and caring and she had great insight and gave wonderful advice. Sending my deepest condolences to all of her loved ones, she will be greatly missed.

Laura was a great Friend and always willing to help others. She was a proud mom talking about her 2 kids often. Laura and I met in Massage Therapy School in 2001 and our senior year I had surgery and she made sure I got my notes She also made sure I went to my Graduation as I didn't have any money to attend. Laura went to our director and told them I couldn't afford to go and they let me go free. Her Massage Treatment was so amazing her caring nature and her want to help others made her a great therapist. She will be deeply missed and I will plant something in my garden to remember her

I just wanted you to know I have made a donation in your name to our local Georgina Animal shelter. I know how much you loved Dozer and all dogs and animals alike. It’s a small thing I can do for you since you did so much for me

Laura was a kind, soulful and beautiful woman. She would always lend an ear when you needed her to. She was really selfless, always caring for other people before taking care of her own needs. We had lots if laughs and she will be missed greatly. She will always be in my heart and thoughts. RIP beautiful Laura.
