    I am so sorry to hear of Laura’s passing. She was a member of my graduate cohort at UNCP. We had been missing her in our class and are so sad to hear this news. She was such an authentic, funny, kind, and encouraging classmate. She will be missed.

    This is such sad news. I was one of Laura’s classmates and she was always kind to me. I did not know of any condition or illness, it breaks my heart. I am praying for her family and loved ones. May she Rest In Peace.

    This is truly heartbreaking news. Laura was such an incredible soul. She was a deeply dedicated advocate, a skilled counselor, a creative student, and a person who exuded unyielding compassion, warmth, and care. It was an immense honor to know, teach, and collaborate with her in the UNCP Department of Counseling. Laura’s radiant light, keen humor, and generous kindness will be missed by all who had the joy of knowing her.

    I am so saddened to hear about the passing of Laura. We were in the counseling program together at UNCP and from the first time I met her, she was nothing but kind. She was very sweet and supportive and I always enjoyed being around her in class. She was an amazing person and she was an excellent counselor. We have really lost a gem! My thoughts and prayers are with her family during this difficult time.

    Laura was a dear classmate of mine and I’m filled with much sadness and regret over her passing. For the past two and a half years, Laura has been a constant in our lives at UNCP, and I feel like I can speak for us all when I say we have always appreciated her insight, warm character, and humor. Laura, you are deeply missed and I’m saddened that we didn’t get the chance to celebrate together at graduation. I hope your loved ones can feel comforted by the positive impact you had on those you encountered and are wrapped in the warmth of memories you had together. Sending you all love, Courtney
