Stefan and Janice and family-

I’m thankful for the memories Laura gave me and the talks we had, she always had a special way about her, she was so smart and through this last year she showed true testimony of things she endured. Thank you for sharing her with me.

She always told me I gave the best shampoos lol.

I’ll be praying for you all through the loss here on earth but rejoicing for the gates of heaven that opened to her after many years of waiting.

Laura Olson was a special acquaintance and friend. She was well known in the Washington/Romeo area and served her community and Romeo United Methodist Church with distinction. Her caring presence was always felt by those who knew her. We will miss her..

Laura was such a beautiful woman. I enjoyed our conversations and the thoughtful cards she would send.

God has received another Angel.

The Olsons were wonderful friends of our family in Romeo, MI. When I moved to Kalamazoo and attended Western Michigan University, Mrs. Olson frequently checked in on me and treated me to frequent dinners. During my college years, it was comforting to know she was there if I needed anything. My thoughts are with Laura Olson’s family and friends as we remember the positive impact she had on her community and on us.

So sorry to hear of Aunt Lol’s passing. I know she will be in good company but will be missed by those left behind. I have very fond memories before Mom Wood died when we would all get together. God Bless you all. Hope you find comfort knowing she is watching over you all.
