I worked with Laurie for a short time. She had such a sweet positive spirit. She kept a smile on her face and told her story with no regrets. I am blessed to have had the pleasure of getting to know her.

I worked with Laurie briefly at Lumen and she was a super sweet lady. She will be missed! She touched all our lives. Prayers for her family.

I briefly worked with Laurie at Lumen. My first encounter she shared with me her journey and said I’ve beat the odds. I’m on His time. Laurie was always positive and never complained! I had the pleasure of meeting Laurie’s mom and immediately could see where she got her sweet spirit. I’m honored to have cross paths with Laurie because she showed me how life is truly a gift.
