dear family of laura,
I was a friend of Laura's from her tower air days. I had been working at tower for about a year before i met laura. When we finally did meet in the bathroom at the tower terminal i remarked that i was surprised had never flown with her before. She told me that she tried not to fly too much. I thought it was the funniest thing a flight attendent who didn't want to fly too much. We both just started laughing at the same time. it was that easy to become a friend to laura. She was so funny and kind. I enjoyed the years i knew her and the lomg conversations we shared about our lives as young women trying to figure out what we wanted out of life. Laura was always trying to learn from her life and her relationships. i remember her great smile and laugh. THere was a light about her. Everytime i saw her at a gathering we would discuss making plans to do things but we never got around to it. I think about laura often. For me she will aways be a symbol of love, laughter and hope. Hope that a better place exists and that laura is happy and laughing. Hope that the important things in life are not how long we live but how we live. I pray today that god gives you the srength and peace only he can give. I will never forget laura, the person she was and how she died. My children will know her too because i will tell them about her one day.
God Bless you and God bless America.
