Dear Uncle Tom, Kim, Steve and Jeff,

Our deepest condolences for the passing of dear Aunt Laurette.

Heaven just got another bright star.

The bond between Aunt Laurette and her older sister Gail, my mother, was full of joy, laughs, tears and endless support. It was enriching for me to be part of their world growing-up. I wanted to post a few photos here as we open our hearts and prayers to celebrate Aunt Laurette’s full and loving life.
