So many memories of my wonderful cousin that I always called my name sake. She was an excellent teacher when I was in 2nd grade as well as a loving, caring cousin. She will be missed and never forgotten. RIP
I know your going to be such a beautiful Angel watching down over Laura and all of your family.
Fly high our Beautiful Guardian Angel

I have such fond memories of Aunt Donna - our families met when I was in grade school and she was in college. I know she now surrounded by her son, parents, her brother and other family and friends.
