We lost a friend today. To Covid. Laura’s enthusiasm for the arts and her support as a longtime board member was a gift to us all. Her passing will leave a huge hole in our hearts. Laura helped us see the possible, to take chances, and she inspired us to work with humor and grace. We will miss her beautiful smile, her “sure, we can do that” attitude, her commitment, her kindness, and the joy she always brought with her. We are eternally grateful for the time we had with her. Godspeed Laura Bird Thompson Wetherald.
