LaToya, Keisha, Marvin & The Dooley Family,

I worked with Laura 2006 - 2009 as a Cashier at Tom Olesker. In the month of February we were asked to wear Afrocentric attire on the weekends only. Laura had enough Afrocentric attire to wear for the entire month of February! I can truly say that Laura always went out of her way to make everyone feel special. She will be missed. May the Lord bring comfort, peace, and whatever you need most during this season of your life.

To the family my condolences, and prayers. Laura was so kind and understanding to others and would give you what she had if you needed it. Above all else she loved her children. We had a lot of tears shed for or children and a lot of laughs. My best friend has gone home. You will be truly missed. It has been no matter how long we did not stay in contact or time passed, or what ever time day or night we could count on the other, just for a comforting word or to vent. No judgment or apologies were needed. just unconditional friendship, I was so lucky to have experienced that because of you my friend. No more pain, sister. RIP

May GOD comfort the family and give you strength to endure! Back in the day Laura and I would spend a night at Tiny Bees. She would always dress us alike and do our hair. Laura and I use to hang out during our high school days! You couldn’t tell us nothing. She will be miss! I will continued to pray for my cousins! Love you all!
