In August 26, 1977 Laurie and her loving husband Gene L.

Laurie's family wishes to express their deep thanks to all those who have shown her kindness and assisted in her care, especially the many healthcare professionals who came to know her, made her comfortable, and helped her deal with her medical challenges.
