I was so said to learn that Laura died last June. I too learned about her passing from the Guilford Alumni news. Laura was one of my first college friends at Guilford. We lived on the same floor and were in the same English class. Laura had a knack for the English class and I was terrible at it. She really helped me out by critiquing my writing assignments. My best memories of her simply involved talking. We would have long conversations about anything and everything. Laura was funny, smart, cool and sweet. My condolences to her family and friends. She is missed.
I am sorry to hear Laura died last June. She was my suitemate and good friend at Guilford College, and I have often wondered what became of her after she left. I've even did a few web searches in the hopes of that something would turn up.
How sad to read in Guilford Alumni news that she died last June. With this information, I finally did find her on the internet, and while an obituary was the last place I wanted to see her name, the one tiny piece of information it gave about her life made me chuckle: in her spare time she enjoyed hiking.
My fondest memory of Laura is of her hiking up a stony steep mountain trail wearing hard clogs (might have been Stone Mountain). We laughed about it together then, I have laughed describing it since, and I laughed a bit today re-imagining Laura. My example of "urban chick in clogs: obviously doesn't do mountains" is now "woman who climbed in clogs and kept climbing."
To Laura's mother, brother, husband, and loved ones, I offer my condolences.
