    I am so sorry about your loss and I was so shocked. I live next door 3007 Harpeth Springs Dr to where Laura lived. I loved Joseph and Isabell and they were regulars at my house.Laura was such a special person. I really missed them when they moved. Please give Joseph and Isabell a big hug for me but I know they will not remember who I am. Your family is in my prayers and I hope Joseph and Isabell will be ok. God Bless.

    I am so grateful to of had the chance to work and learn from Laura. She was a wonderful teacher with so much wisdom and love. I will be praying for your family and her beautiful children in the days, weeks and years to come. We May never understand God’s plan, but we will take with us the memories and lessons shared with us during Laura’s brief time on this earth.

    You are so missed by many. Sam was so worried about Joseph but he says that he is ok. I only hope that I can be half as good of a mom, friend, teacher of my children as you were. Forever in our memories.
