For the Love of Laura, the book

October 29, 2010

Hello, everyone. Thank you for participating in book tribute to Laura. It’s coming together nicely, and it’s almost complete. It will be printed in a few days, so please get your entries to me by no later than this Saturday, Oct. 30, if you are interested. Everyone is welcome. Just fill out a quick survey here and e-mail a photo of yourself (see more details here).

The photo and word project was originally going to be a gift for Laura, but now it will be a tribute to Laura from her friends and family. Copies of the first version of the book will be shown at Laura’s Celebration of Life on Nov. 6. If friends and family see the book and decide they want to be a part of it, there will be an opportunity to participate in the final printing later in the weeks after the celebration.

Thank you again for being a part of this special project.


The foundation

October 28, 2010

Laura and Grant founded the Elizabeth Rosenquist Foundation two years ago with the hope of helping children locally and around the world.

The Elizabeth Rosenquist Foundation — a non-profit organization named in honor of Grant’s mother who died of cancer — is still going strong. Soon, the foundation will be renamed as the Liz and Laura Foundation.

In lieu of flowers, friends and family are welcome to make donations to the foundation Laura cared so much about. Visit for an update from Grant, details on how to donate and previous entries from Laura about her plans for the foundation.

Thanks again.

Yesterday Laura lost her battle with cancer. She fought long and hard, but in the end, went quickly and peacefully. We will not forget her strength, her courage, her determination. Nor will we forget her big heart, bright smile, her creativity and her sweet spirit.

Family and friends will be able to celebrate her life at an upcoming memorial. Please check this site for more details as information will be posted as it becomes available.

If you haven’t already, and would like to participate in the book project for Laura, click here. The book will be displayed at her memorial.

Thank you for visiting.
