  1. Paul you and your family have my sincerest sympathy. It is very hard to loose a family member that is so young. My heart hoes out to you, so sad.

  2. I’m so saddened by this news. Laura and I became friends in high school, we always had fun together. May her family have strength and peace at this time and no she will be watching from heaven.

  3. Laura was an amazing person. So full of life and excitement. She was loved by all of us at Data Directions for the years she worked with us and beyond. Personally we shared a “over the top” love of animals and carried that friendship throughout the years. Hard to find another guinea pig loving adult these days. I know Tony and the kids will miss her so much. I can only imagine how great a mother she was. Sending Tony our love. Denny and Kevin Wagner.
