Many, many more knew and loved her as Gramma Laura.
Grandma Laura had a way of embracing everyone she met, made them feel the love she had to give. Her heart of gold was what she will be remembered for most. Her battle with 4 different cancers 3 in the last 3 years definitely took its toll on her but she is no longer suffering.
