It is with great sadness that I write to you informing you that George Laurie died early this evening. He fought an uphill battle for a year-and-a-half. He appreciated all the thoughts and prayers from each of you.

I will be making arrangements with Norman Dean Funeral Home tomorrow.

George would want donations in his name given to the DAHS in lieu of flowers. Please inform me how checks should be made payable and where they should be sent.

Thank you for your friendship to George over the years.

Lynn Laurie
