We were so fortunate to visit Laura a couple of weeks before she passed. Even in her final days she was concerned about everyone else and wanted to hear details about our family. She was a special niece and she will be missed. We are so appreciative of all the support she and Joe have given over the years to Elden. They had a special bond and love for each other. Our prayers go Joe, her children, her siblings and her grandchildren.

Dear Smolka Family,
I am so sorry to hear of Lori’s passing. She was such a wonderful, caring person, always with a good word of encouragement for everyone. I remember once, when times were tough in our own child-raising time, that she was a ray of sunshine in a particularly dark hour. She was so non-judgmental, when I needed this most, and just encouraged us to keep going, just keep going. And let me add here, I was a near-stranger to her, yet she reached out to a mom in tears, and just asked what was wrong, and could she help. She did. Thanks, Lori, I needed that.
