Please accept my condolences. I had the privilege of being associated with Laura when she worked in the Military Personnel Office at Carlisle Barracks for a number of years. She was dedicated, highly skilled, and had a most pleasant personality. She was a great asset to the office and was admired by everyone. She talked often of her family and growing up in Kane, PA. May she rest in peace.
Warmest regards.
