Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Dear Ralph, Our sympathy to you and your family on the passing of Laureen. - Posted by: Bob and Carol Wright (Friends) on: Apr 17, 2022

  • Aunt Laureen has always and will always hold a special place in my heart. Being the first niece I was blessed with having the undivided attention of Aunt Laureen in my early years which served as a basis for a long lasting close relationship. We had many long walks together and laughs and tears. Aunt Laureen was my role model growing up and continues to be to this day. She was a warm caring soul who was always there for anyone who needed a hug or a helping hand. She will be missed greatly by myself and anyone who had the privilege or knowing her. Rest In Peace Auntie. - Posted by: Diane Bernard (Niece) on: Apr 16, 2022
