dressed for her 14th Birthday, ready to go to school,
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
It was one of the few times her hands did not tremble or shake.

Laura wanted to just simply love them, hold them, play with them and to help take care of them in any way at all.
It made her so very happy when
she could, as you can see she was on

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.
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.
