Just because you are sp very special. You are my very best friend and you were my very best friend more like sisters. More like you could say sisters in Christ. I am so happy I asked you to come to church. You got saved here in just a short few weeks, accepted Jesus as your Savior, and got baptized. Troy, Boo Boo. and I am going to miss you something like ever before. You were loved that is for sure. There is no doubt in my mind you will be in Heaven. We had so many laughs together so much. We were so happy when we hung out together. We went out for a burger or just took a drive just to get out a little bit. We loved to go to Raleigh together and we would go to Crabtree and stop in Garner at Timberlake on the way home. You would go out to eat with me and Troy on Sundays after church. We would eat until we felt like a stuffed turkey. You sure loved a good buffet. The Steak House was our favorite place to go and Cracker Barrel once in a while. Troy took to Grandsons in Smithfield. We had a lot of memories we surely shared. We will never forget you. You sure loved to pick on me but that was ok that meant you loved me a lot. So here until we meet again. I will always cherish our memories and friendship. You shall forever stay in my heart. Your family is in my heart and prayers. Love you to the moon and back. Love always your very best forever Glenda Ann Altman Ever

I am truly going to miss this girl and Tia and Sophia. Laurie was one of a rare friends you just don't often find in your whole life. Someone to confide in and some who loved to go shopping. We used to go to Roses every Wednesday because it was Senior Citizen Day. One on my best friends and neighbors. We shared a lot of meals together. She and Jimmy and Laurie were pals. The three Musketeers. Each one cooking and eating at each others homes. We played cards, we rode to town together. If Laurie wasn't with us, she was with her best friend Glenda Evan's. We are a big family at our apartments and we love each other. In Betty Roger's, Rosa Hagens Laurie and my self in the same building. It will never be the same. She welcomed me in our building and introduced me to others. We walked our dogs together. We told each other secrets between ourselves. She was a dear friend and I am really heartbroken. I know Laurie accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior. I know she is in heaven praising and rejoicing Jesus. I know she is in a much better place with no more worries or pain. I will always miss her and never forget her. Rest in Peace blessed girl. You won the battle and you made it to your heavenly home. Praise God He needed you more than we did, but it sure is lonely without you. I will forever love you my sister and my friend.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family and church family. I am a neighbor of Laurie's and she was a great neighbor. She always had that sweet smile and a kind word to say. She loved her family and her two little dogs. She will be missed.

My heart is broken that I won't see you again until God comes back and takes us all home. You were the best friend and sister in Christ a girl could ever have. I have rejoiced though because you are no longer suffering. I shall have you tucked away in the corner of my heart until we meet again you are everything a friend would ever expect. You are gone but never forgotten. We will miss you out here at the Magnolia Lane paradise where we all lived. We will also miss seeing you at church. You are loved more than you will ever know. Rest in peace my sweet and beautiful friend. I will see you again one day. God be with your family during their time of loss. I have many memories I can hang on to. Gone but not forgotten. You are on my heart forever will never forget your awesome friendship. I am so glad you went to our church and now you are saved by Jesus' grace. You were baptized. There is no doubt in my mind you wil be in Heaven.Talk with you later my frind my best forever friend! :(
