Donald and I were so sorry to hear about Mrs. Goodrich passing. She was a very nice person. Prayers go out to Anne, Henry and family.

I was shocked to hear of your loss - Laura Anne & her family use to give me a ride to Sunday School because I lived right down the road from them. Many happy memories of my childhood with this family- many years now since I have seen any of them. The last time I remember seeing the family was at Wakefield Community Day several years ago. Praying for you all.

Our sympathy and prayers for the family of Laura Anne. She was a special friend of mine--having attended Wakefield High School through all of our young life and then attending William and Mary together! She was also a substitute in my wedding when one of my bridesmaids was taken ill the day of my wedding! She was also my "little sister" in our sorority at William and Mary. Laura Anne will always hold a special place in my heart and she will be missed I am sure not only by me, but also by the many friends she had during her lifetime!
