    I met Laurina thru church in Bedford when I lived up there. She was always nice to me. Laurina, my Mom, and I would always sit by each other during church services. I know Mitchell's McDonald's moring crowd will miss her smiling face when they come through the drive thru window. RIP Laurina. You will be missed by many. Praying for the family during this time of sorrow. We all know Laurina is with Jesus and we will see her again. Love to all...Anita Marlowe.
