To the Acquisto family,
I was shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of Laura. She and I were part of the first pledge class of AKPsi at USC and I was fortunate enough to get to know her. Laura’s character and personality added great value to the organization and my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Chris, Brittany & family,
You have my sympathy and prayers. I really have no words at this time but I'll paraphrase God's word "Tears are prayers too. They travel to God when we can't speak." Psalm 56:8. I am sending love and hugs your way!

Laura was a sweet, beautiful, creative, eclectic, warm-hearted person and was always going out of her way to make others feel included. She and I were close friends in college and shared many, many fun and cherished memories together as friends. From birthday parties, to football games, trips to the beach, dinners at each others houses and even just studying together- I will always remember the times we shared and the impact she made on my life. One of the things she taught me is to embrace each others and our own differences and not to judge others. She was a wonderful person. To Laura's family- I will keep you all in my prayers during this extremely difficult time.

Our sympathy to your family. May you find strength in the words at Revelation 21:3,4 which promises a future without tears, pain or death. May you find comfort in this promise from the Almighty God that. Please accept our sympathy.

I was smitten by Laura when she became my go to angel with the bank...in Camden. Buying delicious cookies for her for helping me (I'm 75)was my treat. We became great friends and it is such a loss to our world that she left us so early....love to you all

Dear Jan, Sal and Family,
Our hearts are breaking for all of you. We have been praying every day since we heard Laura was sick and we were so sad to hear that she had passed away. It seems like just yesterday that we were all on Wood Acres Drive and the girls were running back and forth between our houses. Those are the good memories we will always have. We know Laura is now free from pain and in a better place but that this is a very difficult time for all of you. We will continue to pray in the weeks and months ahead that God will fold you in his arms and you will find comfort and peace.
Love, Madge Mike, Jen and Family

I only met your daughter once and my first impression
was "what a beautiful girl". Her beauty shone within and without...
I loved hearing the funny stories you shared with me ..especially about the time on her flight home from Australia she had so many clothes she could not get them all in her suitcase so she wore multiple layers of clothing all the way home on that long flight from Australia ... What a smart girl she was ... Wonder what the TSA thought when she went through customs ...
I know you will miss this beautiful angel .. May all of you find comfort and peace remembering the wonderful times you shared with her.
Love in Christ !
Harold and Lynne Betty

Laura was one of my closest friends in college someone who I share most of my most cherished memories with. The world has received another angel to watch over us words can't even express how much she will be missed by all of the lives she touched with that smile and laughter. She was truly an amazing friend and person full of life and always up for a good time. My prayers thoughts and strength go out to her family and friends. She will always be remembered and in my prayers. I can't believe your gone and I wish more than anything we had stayed closer but I know you're in a better place and not in pain I love you and will always remember the great times we shared.

Laura was one of the most aggressively optimistic and positive people I knew. She always held a bright wide smile and gave the best hugs! When she'd visit with me and Jeremy, we have such long conversations about so many different topics. I miss her dearly.
#4 Will McNamara 2015-02-25 08:06
Laura was always the center of attention and had no fear of approaching complete strangers and being their best friend by the end of the night! She had an amazing personality and nothing would get in her way! I will miss her dearly. She was a good friend. I'm so sorry for your loss.
