    Laurie (Lolo) and Family,
    Our families have been friends since we were little kids – so many precious memories of Laurita – her quick wit and amazing sense of humor, along with her incredible loving nature and thoughtfulness towards others. I always called her ‘Ma’ because she was like a mom to me. My heart is heavy with sorrow for the loss of our beautiful Laurita.
    With heartfelt condolences,
    Jean Courtemanche Golden and the Golden & Courtemanche families.
