There are times in your life when you are lucky enough to meet a truly amazing soul, being able to call them your friend is a rare gift. That is what Laurie was to me in my life, a rare gift. To know Laurie was to love her. She is the strongest and bravest person I have ever met. Her kindness, caring and positivity were endless and her amazing laugh was contagious. I am so grateful for the times we shared and will miss her every day. Wayne, Shannon and Zoey, I send you my love and I am so truly sorry for your loss.
I met my dear Laurie about 5 years through Zoey as she welcomed me into her life and never fell out. We shared our lives I was so thankful to know you Laurie you were there for me the day I came back from girls camp and I couldn't walk I sat on your porch and you kept me hydrated and my feet up till I could leave and go home . That day was the day I learned about you a compassionate wonderful woman that cared about so many people. I was so thankful to be able to say goodbye and receive 3 beautiful smiles from you. You are our angel now and you will always be in my heart. I will be there for your family as much as I can. When I eat icecream it will always be Chocolate for you. Prayers of comfort to Wayne and the family
Sending condolences to a Wayne & the entire Smith family.

I'm so sorry for the loss. I remember spending so many weekends with Jenny and Megan. Jenny and I also played softball together and became close friends. I always treated like family more than just one of the girls friends.
Laurie would be disappointed in me if I didn’t say, “Walk it off.” Won’t really mean anything to anyone but Laurie and me. And maybe Erika Rosans. .Hope to have the opportunity to explain it to all her family some day.
