Add my condolences, my sadness and most of all my memories of how wise and caring Laurie was. Seeing her name next to a thread always meant helpful advice given in a gentle way. She will be much missed by us; how much more then for her family. Rest in peace, Laurie.
I have not been on this site very much lately. Logged on this morning to see this. What sad, sad news . I always enjoyed reading Laurie's posts which were always knowledgeable and caring and positive. Like all of you, I feel for her husband and children. RIP Laurie. xx
I felt very sad and tearful on hearing about Laurie's death.
Although I never met her I read her posts as they were always encouraging and supportive,she came across as such a generous spirit and a lady with a great sense of humour,someone who would be great to know and have a laugh with.I read on another site where she was posting that she so wanted to make it till summer - her son's b'day.I really hoped she would.
My condolences to Laurie's family and friends.
Very sad news. I have read Laurie s posts and she was a vivacious,informative, positive and uplifting. It's so so sad, she made such a difference. Rest in peace, my heart goes out to Lauries family and friends at their loss...so cruel xx
I am devastated to hear this. Laurie was such a positive happy person. I will remember the joy she had in her convertable "Beetle" when we all met at Potmaids for lunch. Many a night during chemotherapy was spent in her company.
My heartfelt condolences to her family.
I met Laurie a few weeks ago and although she was using a wheelchair and obviously tired, she was still so full of life. I can't believe she went downhill this quickly. She was so ready to support others and will be missed.
Words cannot express the sadness this news brings. Laurie was a breath of fresh air full of advice, wisdom and compassion she had a wonderful sense of humour and faced cancer with the strength and courage of a Lion, my deepest condolences to her family and friends, she will be missed, another light in the sky tonight. Love and light sarah xxxxx
I am so sorry to read this. As everyone has said, Laurie/Alesta was always so positive, upbeat and full of joie de vivre. If I remember rightly, she was one of the ladies who featured in the BCC secondary awareness videos, complete with room-lighting smile and amazing sense of fun.
Rest in Peace, Laurie. My sincere condolences to your family.
What sad news to hear about Laurie. I enjoyed reading her posts when she was first on here and she was so supportive of many ladies newly diagnosed with mets. My heart goes out to her family and friends.
Such sad news. Always admired Laurie's posts on here and it's really upsetting to hear that this wonderful lady has been taken too young and too soon by this dreadful illness.
Sincere condolences to her family and friends. RIP Laurie - flying high with the angels.
This is just so so sad to read, Laurie was really lovely & when I was first dx was so helpful and supportive, heaven has gained another angel , bless you Laurie and my sincere condolences to all her family & virtual friends on here xx
RIP Laurie. So sad to hear this news as she was always positive and very helpful to all on this forum. Another angel, taken too soon. Thoughts and prayers are with her family and especially her children. X
I was lucky to meet Laurie in one of the Claredrops meet up. She was a fantastic and very supportive lady. Another one gone too soon. So sad, two young kids motherless.
A humanist celebration will take place next week.
I have just been on another site and found that Laurie died this morning. I just want to send her husband, children, family and friends my sincere condolences. Some of you guys may remember Laurie when she used to post on this site and thought you might like to remember her in your prayers. Another lovely lady taken too soon.
