GUEST BOOK

A great light was extinguished from our lives yesterday afternoon. Laura was a supportive sister-in-law with my artistic pursuits from my earliest days with Slade, and the best aunt to Marilyn and Slade Jr., remembering them always with thoughtful, ideal gifts suited to their personalities. She was the glue that kept the Cole family celebrating holidays together after their parents were gone. This is indeed a tough one, and our hearts are with you, Gus, Kathryn, and Frances, Emie, Katie and Gus Jr., Mallory and Callan. Much love to all.
