Dear Christine, my heart goes out to you. May God give you and your grandson strength. God understands our deepest pain more than anyone else. Your beautiful Laura is in God's memory. Our loving Creator longs to bring back our dear loved ones to be with us in beautiful conditions on earth. Job 14:14,15, Psalm 37:11. I hope this brief message has given you a measure of comfort. ~ My Deepest Condolences

Hello Debra Lawson-Fields. I'd love to connect. Cmu9952@hotmail.com Our cousin in Texas is doing Underwood family tree. Helen Jones (nee Moore). I'm also on Facebook if you google me Christine.M.Underwood. Thanks so much for visiting my girl. Xxx

I am a distant Underwood relative, but when I saw Laura's name and the attached favorite hymn, "How Great Thou Art," I knew that I should send God's blessings to you, Laura's family & friends across the ocean. We do not understand just why God allows us to make our own "choices," when we are in emotional pain. Please pray for all Underwood cousins and related as others have had similar psychological distress over the generations. I hope that all of you understand the related biological chemistry as it is not just "sadness" from one's life as some still think nowadays. It was my dad's maternal grandmother who brought all of the Underwood cousins to our family. Our particular ancestor came to this continent in the 1600's and thought to have been a Society of Friends, also casually called "Quakers" in the USA, from Wales.

On returning from the other side of the world for 10 years and catching up with other old friends from Canberra High when asking about you it was such a sad moment to hear you were gone much too soon. 

Such a beautiful girl in every way. You were a good friend Laura and as mishcevious as we were together you were such a wonderful person. So many funny times! I'll never forget you setting your pyjamas on fire lighting your fart with your brother Hahahaha.

my heart goes out to your family and all those that loved you! 

Rest peacefully Laura, forever beautiful xxx

Dear Laura Sorry I never met you. My thoughts are with you and your Family today. You just went ahead to wait for all of us. Love, Christel

Hey My Girl, Well this wasn't the way it was supposed to be - we should've been doing a trip overseas to celebrate this milestone. I'm at a loss for words this year - I just cannot express my feelings of loss and sorrow. I thought by now it would be easier but it just gets worse as I watch the other girls with their daughters doing what we used to do and still should be doing. Your boy isn't coping at all and I guess that is why this has been such a struggle this year. We miss you so very, very much. I just wish you could've hung on a bit longer - you would have seen that things eventually work themselves out. Happy angelversary and birthday my darling. I love and miss you, Mum XOX

 Happy 40th beautiful Laura. So many tears are still shed for you. I hope you know how missed you are, When your smile left this world it could never be replaced. xx

I am just a mom who lost her son a year ago. My heart broke when his stopped beating. I did not know Laura, but I do know loss. I know the loss of a child. I had my son with me for 30 years, I wish I had 30 more. He left in a similar way as your daughter. My guilt at times is unrelenting. I miss him everyday. Your Laura is a beautiful girl, gone too soon. Today will be a hard day. Take care of yourself. We love them from their first breath till their last. I know she will be with you in spirit. You are not alone. Respectfully, Forever and always Ryan P Frye's Mom Jeanne

 Such a sad day for everyone darling Laura. You should have been preparing to celebrate a significant birthday by dancing on the tables. Instead we shed tears because we miss your beautiful smile. Forever remembered with love. xx Bev and John

Dear Christine, I have just read the beautiful story of your beautiful girl, Laura. How sad I feel for you. My own sister Alice died by suicide after taking an overdose of sleeping pills just 4days after her 30th Birthday, she died on the 23rd April 1984, and not a day goes by that I don't think of my sister whom I loved and lost in this world. I hope you are keeping well and you have done such a good job creating this beautiful memorial for your daughter. God Bless you Christine, love Mary. X

Well darling girl, another Christmas without you. Yesterday Jess and I watched videos of the three of us out at a Federation Square. It was lovely watching you both share those giggles. There was certainly a bond between the two of you. I miss you as much now as ever. Bran and I took your Christmas decorations to your grave beginning of December and that's always a lovely way to include you in our celebrations. I'll be thinking of you as I watch your son open his pressies in the morning. Love and miss you, Merry Christmas sweetheart, Mum xxx

We saw the outward smile But not your inner pain; We never really dreamt That you'd never smile again.
