    Laird was a gracious gentleman who upped the class and joy in whatever room he entered. We are better for having known him. Rest in peace, Laird.

    I know someone will read these messages to you. Your sweet Laird is gone and I am sorry that you are alone now. Please know that I think of you often and remember the times that you and Laird were at our house for PEO picnics. I see that Laird was a Sigma Chi. My father was a Sigma Chi, and one of my grandsons is a Sigma Chi.
    Blessings to you and your family, dear Betty.
