To all the family of Laura/ Aunt Lar: It is such a pleasure to get to know her over the years when she visited Brenda and Bill and family in Michigan. I have good memories of spending Christmas Eve with her family at Brad and Madelyn's house in Livonia. She is deeply missed. Sending peace and love to all of her family and dear friends!
