Default Beautiful Laura

It is with sadness that I post to remember a beautiful woman Laura (known here as fionae).

Laura had bulbar onset and lived alone. I don't know how she did it, she will always have my deepest respect and admiration. We emailed constantly, but I felt so totally helpless from the other side of the world.

She went through the deepest hell of fear, but today she was granted peace and rest and the monster can no longer torment her.

I will never forget the person I came to know and love - fly free Laura, I hope you are soaring high and laughing now.

Sad....I thought she had a bit longer, but in her situation (being alone) maybe this is kinder.

She used to email back an fourth with me as well. She was a nice lady.

I am so totally heart broken. We emailed and talked quite a bit until she was to weak to email much. I always hated that she spent so much time alone. She was a very spiritual person and always cared more about how I was doing than herself. She has truly gained her wings.

She was a beautiful person inside and out. She sent me a picture of herself. Prayers for her son and family. I truly hate ALS.

No. No.
She was such a sweet loving friend to so many...

I used to email Laura pictures of my beloved rabbit, Ivy. They cheered Laura so.

I will always think of dear Laura when I look at Ivy.

May she rest in God's loving arms...

I am quite...disbelieving for a minute that she's gone...
