    So sorry for your loss. I worked with her at LHS hospital. She was a funny, hard-working, intelligent young lady. I could always depend on her to be able to handle any situation that arose. We had some good adventures outside work that were memorable. My deepest condolences to your family, and I will keep her in my memories and prayers.


  5. To the Abate family,
    I was very sorry to hear of Laura’s passing. May your family find peace and dwell on wonderful family memories..
