We are so sad to hear of Laura's passing. Even though it was a struggle for her, she would always make it a point to stop in and see all of us at the Friends Book Warehouse.  And she would always bring a special kitty treat for Hemingway! It was so hard to reopen today and not see her smiling face. RIP, Laura until we can see you again someday.

Love, Linette, Randy, Hemingway and all your friends at the book warehouse.

Laura was a wonderful soul, who marched to the beat of her own drum. We will miss her tremendously!

Laura was a good soul so joyful and spunky. She always brought a smile to my face. Will be sadly missed.

So sorry to hear of Laura's passing.  I knew her and her sister Celeste in childhood as our parents were friends.  Fond memories of fun times.  Prayers are given to those succeeding, and hopefully give some comfort.

Laura Wheeler was a one-of-a-kind person. Regardless of what anyone said or thought, she always went her own way in life! The world will be less interesting without her in it!
