I'm so sorry to hear about Laurels passing.I was privileged to meet and get to know her from driving her to her appointments at the U of M. We connected right away and had numerous conversations on every topic you could think of. she would always bring a sheepskin cover for her seat belt and one time she forgot it in my car so I brought it back to her the following day and she graciously invited me in for coffee. I so enjoyed touring her apartment in Faribault and seeing how creative she was with her "fireplace". I also enjoyed seeing her family photos all displayed as she was so proud of them and her paintings.She was a lovely person who shared my faith in Christ as well as intelligent and articulate. She will be missed so much.My prayers are with her family and fiends and I counted her as a friend of mine too.

I dearly love my sister, Judy; however, since I met and married John, I have been blessed to have Laurel Jill, Judi, Marilyn, Jan as sisters" and Patrick as a "brother." Frequently, the families enjoyed weekends and vacation time together at Lou and Evelyn's home, participating in wild and crazy card games and exciting croquet matches. Whether inside or outside, Jill's infectious laugh always echoed throughout the area. Thanksgiving found all of us at a looong table in the Hudson Lake living room, covered with wonderful food selections featuring a laarge turkey. The most unusual Christmas celebration found us all outside around two picnic tables. A never-to-be-forgotten vacation with the Sanders at their home in Marquette, Michigan, resulted in my adventure with "the sock with eyes" that Todd loved to tease me about everytime we were together. I remember Jill telling me how happy Dawn was when our daughter, Edye, was born. Finally, a girl cousin after seven boys! Todd,Mike and Eric developed a lasting friendship. We loved our early times together and treasure the most recent Indiana reunions and Jill's Texas visit.Thank you,Shawn, Jenny and girls for finding Reflections for Jill. We miss and love you, Laurel Jill; you are always in our hearts.
