  1. God Speed Laura and my prayers go out to your family as you go about your journey. God Bless You, Love Mari Joe Laurich Concierge@Sunrise Assisted Living

  2. My sons remember Laura as the source of crisp oatmeal cookies, by far our favorite cookie. But when I remember Laura and Perry, I think of dinners shared, first sitting at the kitchen table and later moving up to the adult table. And so much laughter. Always laughter. How precious are the memories!

  3. Dear Family of Late Mrs. Edwin: I am sending this message to comfort you and your family during this time of grief. I became aware of the loss of your loved one published in the recent obituary. Death is a tragedy that the Bible refers to as the last enemy. (1Corinthians 15:25,26) Grief is a normal reaction to loss. It is one of the most stressful situations a person may have to face in life. At a time like this, many have asked: How can I live with my grief? Is it normal to experience feelings of guilt and anger? How should I deal with these reactions? What can help me to endure the loss and the grief? What is the hope of our dead loved ones? Will we ever be able to enjoy their companionship again? (John 5:28,29) I would like to send you a free brochure entitled “When Someone You Love Dies…” which answers these questions and has comforted many during and after the period of bereavement. I would like to mail you this brochure without any obligation if you so desire. Please send me your mailing address via E-Mail at or call me at (310) 376-3363. See schedule below.
