My condolences to the family. I am so very sorry for your loss!!! When Laura and I met it was an instant connection, like we had always known each other, but that was probably that way for most. She was an extraordinary lady! She will be greatly missed by all she touched.

I am sadden to hear of the passing of Mrs. Harshbarger. She was like a second mother to me during childhood and I carry so many fond memories. I remember her returning to school while caring for her family. She was a great inspiration to me when I decided to continue my education while my children were still young. She will be greatly missed and fondly remembered. Love all of you!

Laura was one of those unique people that You are so glad God put in your life. I met her when I started volunteering at Hamlin PK-8. She was what I have always thought a great teacher would be like. She took care of her students, gave generously of her time and money. She was a good friend, easy to talk to. I loved that she had a heart of gold, and her beautiful smile. Fly high sweet angel, you will be missed by so many.
