Laura was always so extremely happy & very proud to say “I’m your Aunt Laura” to Ashley which she is in this picture.

She then asked Ashley ‘can you talk?’  Laura wanted to just simply love her, hold her, play with her and to help take

care of her in any way.  It made her so very happy when she could, as you can see she was on March 3rd 2008.

It was one of the few times her hands did not tremble or shake.

The Midland School


Laura loved going to the Midland School so much that she was lost on snow days & holidays.

On the weekends she couldn’t wait until Monday to go to school.


On June 18th 2010 the Executive Director of the Midland School Philip M. Gartlan presented the first annual

Laura Krivoshik Spirit Award in her honor & memory.


“Laura Krivoshik was a Midland Student who sadly passed away this year.


Laura was a happy, enthusiastic, and naturally polite young lady who came to school every day with a smile on her face


Laura loved books, animals, her family, her friends … and they loved her.

Her teacher and classmates described her as someone who found the simple joy in her daily routines and class activities …

As someone who knew how to be happy in the moment.


In honor of Laura, we would like to present the Laura Krivoshik Spirit Award to the Midland student who exemplifies

Laura’s enthusiasm, her love of family and friends, and her ability to live fully and joyfully in each moment.


I am pleased to present the Laura Krivoshik Spirit Award to

Daphne Esposito.”






Earth Day long ago at The Midland School wearing a blue butterfly shirt & matching hat.





Laura in the library at The Midland School, reading a book she had picked out.

Laura loved books and even more so loved when we read to her.





A shopping cart relay race during a Dad & Me program at The Midland School.

Laura loved pushing the cart but moved so very slow, so I pushed the cart as she hung on to keep up.

I never knew how happy she was during these events until I received this & other pictures from her school.

She did ask me from time to time if we could do more Dad & Laura things, I never knew how happy they made her.

I wish there were more of these events that I could have done with her.





Playing a game during speech therapy at The Midland School in 2009.





Laura, so proudly accepting her award at The Midland School.





On Tuesday night April 13th 2010 at bed time Laura kept saying again & again ‘take my picture, take my picture’.

She would not stop so I finally did with my cell phone with only the 4 watt night light on in her bedroom (no flash). 

The first time the picture was all black, I moved the night light & took this second photograph, which I showed to Laura

 and said ‘we can see you now’, I almost never showed Laura the pictures on my camera let along my cell phone.

Laura then told me ‘thank you, I love you daddy’.  I gave her a kiss and said, ‘I love you too hon (honey),

please go to sleep so you won’t be tired for school in the morning.’

Laura loved going to the Midland School so much that she was lost on snow days & holidays.


I cannot believe that this is the last photograph of our beautiful angel we will ever have.


I love you Laura & always will.
