She was a dedicated poetry writer and had several children's stories in progress. She was a friend to many and deeply loved by her entire extended family.

Laura was an avid horse lover and owner, and spent several years volunteering for a local horse rescue. In honor of her dedication to her beloved horses, we are asking for memorial gifts to be made in the name of LAURA TATE to Colby's Crew Horse Rescue:

~ See ya soon mama,

I will miss our many talks,

and all the fierce prayers you prayed

over me and your grandchildren.

I am so thankful for the time we had together

before you had your heavenly promotion. I will

miss you like crazy till we meet again.

Love you forever and a day, Kellina.
