    Laurel was one of the most genuinely kindhearted and loving people I had the opportunity to know and work with. She loved her babies and talked about them all the time! Her children, and later her grandchildren, were her greatest treasures and her love and pride for them was evident! Hugs and prayers for y’all💕
