Weeks after she was first buried, Laura was memorialized by friends and family at her funeral service. "Her light shone and continues to shine before people in a way that profoundly affects us all for God's glory," her father, Don, said at the service.

"Laura's way with people, her selfless actions, and her honest compassion have been an inspiration to me," said Laura's sister, Lisa. "I hope that in whatever time I have left here, I can come close to loving people the way that she did."
