    Laurie was a special niece because she was born here in El Paso at William Beaumont Hospital at Fort Bliss while her Dad was serving in Vietnam. I was the “Stand-in Dad” at the hospital. She had many special gifts that touched so many lives. Love to Jennifer, Shirlene, Jeff and Jack as we all mourn her passing and celebrate her life. XOXO, Aunt Patti
