Dear Musso/McDonald family,
Just wanted to pass on my sincere condolences for the untimely passing of our beautiful cousin/sister/friend. Laurie was an amazing, positive generous soul who touched everyone she came in contact with. Although I hadn't talked with her for many years, I have great memories of all the fun times at Geauga Lake park and other family gatherings. Sending warm thoughts across the miles during this profoundly sad time.
All the best,
Lisa Boldman

I am so sorry for the loss. I will never forget spending a week with mama Cruz every year to go to Florida. She was such an amazing, warm and welcoming person. The word is a little darker without her in it. My family is sending love and prayers to you all during this time.
