    Just learned of Laurie's passing is so sad and I wish her family solitude comfort and blessings for this sweet lady's family, whom I did not know very well but met her through RANM conferences and she was always a very gracious lady. May you all find comfort and you have a guardian Angel taking care of her family indeed.

    My heart and condolences go out to her Alex, Betty and Alli. I had the pleasure of spending most of my high school and college days with Laurie. We laughed and cried together and shared a very special friendship. She was a person who made everyone smile and she will be missed dearly. Much love to her family.

    Dear Mr. and Mrs. Pankey,

    I am so sorry for your loss. Laurie was a beautiful and sweet woman and she will be missed by many. Her little dog Coee and my dog Marley became wonderful friends through the fence at Spanish Gate. Every time Marley goes out into the back patio, she goes to the wall and listens for Coee. It is hard to watch.
    You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers, and Laurie is in a much better place.

    Love, Belinda

    God has gained a new angel. I knew Laurie for a very short period of time. I was a newbie at Berkshire Hathaway and she took me under her wing and was the sweetest to me.
