Laura loved her family dearly! She will be sorely missed, but forever cherished. Laura had a love for all animals, she could never turn a stray away!

Dear Leo
I was driving home and I saw the Brackney marquee. I called them to confirm it was your Laura. I know how fast 33 years can pass and how short it seems looking back. If I read the obituary correctly—Jessica and one of her children passed? I am so so very sorry for Laura and you to have endured so much loss. I hope you will grieve as you need and know it gets better and then worse-ups and downs-never in a straight line. Some good days and some not so go with it and be kind to yourself.
Thinking of you—

Leo and Sue
