    I heard the news today. My heart aches for all of you. Laurie was such a sweet soul . I will miss her always and think of her every time I see a Sunflower growing in a field. I'm so heartbroken that I couldn't say goodbye one last time . You will all be in my prayers.

    Although no words can really help to ease the loss you bear, because no parent should ever have to bury their child . Please know your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

    I have worked with Laurie for 8 years and have liked her from the first minute we met. She is the kindest and sweetest person ever. We laughed about our wife's , our pets and our jobs . We also consoled each other whenever the need arose. Being apart of the HEB family is something a lot of people don't understand until you are apart of it than you get it. We support , help and care for one another. This also extends to the families of our partners. They our now part of our family. We love you and we will miss you Laurie, you will NEVER be forgotten.

    I’m so sorry for your loss! My mind goes back to middle school, staying the night at Laurie’s and watching Paula Shore movies. She was such a sweet person and I’m so sorry to say goodbye. Love and prayers to her family.
