On be half of the New Georgia UMC family, we extends our deepest condolences to the family. may our good old Lord strengths you all in Jesus’s name!
My Dear Sis in Christ, my Whole Loving Hearted good buddy as I remember the stories about Ricks and a lot of Classmates and Family I met through her sweet heart as we got to ride up and down the Treacherous different Rd’s, Highways, Cities, States we stop by or passing through from, Myrtle Beach, Charlotte NC, Baltimore, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Washington DC, Delaware, Atlantic City, going to so many Weddings and Functions, I learn the Foods, Entertainment, The Dialects, the March and many other things, places and doings with our Daughters and Oh mom Mappy, Alaska Man having the most fun in our life, laughter, joy. Laura was a True Trusted Woman of God that took me in like a born African American Sis as we done so much together in Life and I will sadly miss her very much, but I know our God got her and she will do nothing now but rest in Peace and be with all her other Love ones in Heaven. RIP my Sis I will Love you forever and hold you in my Memories forever, God has called another Angel as she has gained her Wings. I will never forget the differences she made in so many Lives. (I use to call her Alida a lot, of times Aye Laura RIP Sis).
In Loving Memory

Laura rest in perpetual peace! Remembering our high school days on Ricks Institute, Liberia, especially as classmates and graduates of class of ‘81. Those were our glorious and youthful days filled with funs, joys, laughters, seriousness, anxieties, dreams, and preparing ourselves for the future.
Laura, you fought a good fight, Rest In Peace and you’ll be missed.

You were a sister to me through it all. Sweet sweet memories I will cherish forever,. Your leaving is so sad, hurtful, tearful and heart broken. One day Laura, we will walk up and down the streets of Glory where all is peace and where God is love. love u always
Rest in peace my beloved sister. You fought a good fight and now you are resting with your heavenly father. Thanks for everything, especially for the love and care you gave our mother.
My heart is breaking and the pain of losing you is overwhelming me. One thing I know is that our God is good. You transitioned so peacefully that I am convinced that the angels beckoned you from heaven open doors.
Rest Alida, rest. Miss and love you
I know your life on earth was troubled and only you could know the pain,
You weren’t afraid to face the devil you were no stranger to the rain,
Go rest high on the mountain
Sister your work on earth is done
Go to Heaven a shoutin’ Love for the Father and the Son;
Oh how we cried the day you left us
We will gather round your grave to grief
Wish we could see the angels’ faces when they hear your sweet voice sing,
So take your wings and soar high on that mountain you beautiful soul,
Take your rest, we will fondly missed you my dear sister.
You shared your only daughter with my only son and that union brought our paths together as a family,
It pains my heart to lose this beautiful soul, we love you but God loves you best, sleep in perpetual peace, rest and abide on His bosom my dear sister.🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿😂😂😂
