Dear Kathleen, the angel of MaMa's eyes.
Laura will be truly missed. I had to post my final letter to your Mom. I want everyone to know what a funny wonderful friend she was. I am sure she is in heaven with a giant box of chocolate surrounded by all her favorite shades of purple sitting next to George explaining to him she really did not mean to hide the remote from him that one time. It really WAS lost in her needle point basket.

She had nothing but love and pride in her children and husband. I could go on and on with stories but will take mercy on other poor folks who would also like to post memories. I am selfishly taking a large portion for myself because she was a large part of my life and because she would see the humor in it.

Dear Laura
I remember when you worked early morning hours at the White Hen and had to cook frozen chili blocks in the soup pot for the lunch hours. Normal people do not eat chili at 6 am but lucky you got a guy who wanted chili at 5:30 am. You desperately tried to help the chili thaw by pushing the frozen lump to the bottom of the pot. That created a large splash wave of half thawed chili all over your hair and lovely lavender shirt. You just wiped your face off, smiled your beautiful smile and the customer got his chili.

I remember you and I discussing the mating habits of wire hangars. We could never figure out why we would hang up our laundry, go to bed at night and the next morning there would be hundreds of wire hangers all tangled up in our closets. It was eerie that all the plastic ones would disappear. We suspected cannibalism.

Dear Laura
Oh Lord how we looked forward to menopause. Your PMS stories of craving chocolate at 2:30 am during the winter in which you would throw on Hubby’s over size coat over you flannel nightgown, put on men’s size 18 galoshes and drive a 14 year old station wagon with non-working windows to get a Milky Way bar and NOT having to share it with anyone.
I remember the stories you told about your house cleaning days at rich people’s houses that had vacuum cleaner systems in their walls so strong that Lord help you if your pants got caught on the vacuum hose. The darn vacuum would try to suck your pants off.

Dear Laura
I remember your outrage when mandatory recycling went into effect. There was something about having to take the recycle garbage out of the garbage can (our family too lazy to separate it) just so we could wash it clean and put is back into a “different” type of garbage can. However you did win the title Recycle Queen of the neighborhood. Even if the trash collectors would threaten jail time for your overflowing itty bitty garbage can for a family of 5. I remember you wanted the village to pay you for your time in postage stamps.
Ah yes, the frantic search for pennies, nickels and dimes (notice no quarters) in our furniture and cars so we could have our postage stamps. If I recall we once did the same Christmas gift to each other….Two whole books of postage stamps for our letters. We often wondered if banks would approve of small loans for postage stamps. We had a wretched addition to letter writing.

My Darling Laura. I can picture you now at the feet of our Lord Jesus Christ telling Him your funny stories and He is doubled over with laughter with tears running down his face. And to think you now know the answer to a question that has burned your brains your entire life…….The Lord will finally reveal WHY he created Mondays.
And the snoring. Oh my gosh the stories we had about snoring. We did come up with creative ways to stop snoring like pillows over the face, sewing tennis balls to back of their jammy bottoms, using chains and Velcro to keep them on their sides while they slept. Our hubbies would insinuate that WE snored which of course was NOT true. We ladies just breathe heavy.
Anyone who knew you could go on and on with stories of joy, love and laughter. You were such a blessing on this earth. You touched so many lives in many different ways. You will be missed from this earth by all of us but there is joy knowing we will see you again soon when we get our new membership status in Heaven with our Lord Jesus Christ.
Farewell my lovely friend Laura Cleghorn
Love Mary Magnuson your secret sister author partner in crime
