I will miss her


I have worked with Laura for many, many years. I started seeing her as a fairly new therapist and she taught me to never underestimate my kids. She always amazed me with her willpower and her desire to participate and communicate, even though she had no words and limited ability to control her movements. Laura was an amazing child. She truly touched my heart. I will miss her beautiful smile and her unique ability to strum the guitar with her feet. No one else will ever appreciate my "wake up toes" song as much as Laura and I doubt anyone else will ever get so much joy from my rendition of the "Hokey Pokey." My heart goes out to her family, who has done amazing things in her honor. You can read more about Laura's legacy here. I am so fortunate to have had Laura in my life and I will miss her.

Darn. Losing a child is never easy - but especially those who touch our hearts in a special way.

I'm so sorry, Erin! That news article brought tears to my eyes, and made me wish I had known her.

Hugs to you.
