I worked with Laura at Elcho School. We didn’t see each other daily as I was in the high school end, but every time I did see her it was always pleasant to visit with her. She was a beautiful person inside and out. I am so saddened to learn she passed. I live in Idaho now but kept in touch with her through FB. Heaven definitely gained an angel. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
