So sorry to hear about the passing of Laura. She was a great and caring lady. I had the opportunity of working with her at Arkansas Power & Light Company as well as Leonard. Both great individuals and special friends. We have had many discussions about the Razorbacks since she was a special fan and I a player. Sorry Ann a better place and her memories will be with us forever. May God care and comfort all the family during this sad time. God bless.
