Memories Timeline

    I am so sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you in your time of sorrow. May you let God’s Word comfort you when it reads, “If a man dies can he live again? …You will call, and I myself shall answer you. You will long for the work of your hands.” {Job 14:14, 15}. God will have a longing to resurrect our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death.

  2. Arend van der Heiden says:

    Dear Laura, rest in peace! Have deep and fond memories of you during our visits in the Netherlands. I’ll never forget you!

    I am so very sad. She was such an important part of my life. She supported me in so many ways. It became far more than an employee/employer relationship. I felt she was my friend and my biggest cheerleader.

    I learned so much from her. I loved her feisty-ness and her, “who cares what the world thinks” attitude. She did her own thing and I so respected her for it.

    She taught me about the south, Lollie Belle, eating okra, accepting people for what they are, doing your own thing, how to pick a watermelon and never to buy one before July 1st, and so much more.

    She was an incredible person and I will feel forever enriched for having known her and have been part of her life and she part of mine.

    I will forever be thankful that I had that last visit with her and only wish there had been more.

    My condolences to Mary, David,Rebecca, and Stephanie. She was so very proud of y’all and what you have accomplished.

    We have lost a wonderful soul.

    I feel a profound sense of loss with the passing of Laura Hay. She was a woman who had a gift of understanding people and situations, a woman who saw through pretenses, a woman who appreciated a person with a trustworthy character. When she came to my house on a weekly basis, I looked forward to our chatting, laughing, and sharing stories. I just plain enjoyed being with her.
    She spoke with pride of her children and their families. She took an interest in all of my family members.
    I last saw her at the end of May. Though she recognized that she was seriously ill, she maintained her interest in others and still had a curiosity of the outside world. There aren’t many other people like her. I will miss her.
