Tony, I was so shocked to hear about Laureese. She was such a great friend to everyone, and especially the old Bi-Lo crew that used to hang out together. I hope that memories of her laughter will ease your pain.

To the Martin Family: I am sorry for the loss of such a dear person in your life. Laureese and I attended Piedmont Technical College in the 70's together. She was the nicest person. We spent many afternoons after class at the old Eckerd's lunch counter in Greenwood. May you have Peace of Heart and never forget God's unfailing love.
