Our family is becoming smaller all the time. Thinking of all the times we had together at grandmother´s house growing up. Laura fought hard but her body just could not recover. We will miss her

We love you all, and are so sorry. Laura had been through so much. We, too, thank those who loved her in New Zealand. I have many good memories of us cousins all growing up so close together. Today, especially, I am remembering all those happy times at Grandmother´s at holidays, and missing those who aren´t here anymore.
