Laura and Paul were also very dedicated to the fight against hunger and poverty at the state level, as evidenced by their strong involvement with New Mexico Lutheran Office for Governmental Ministry, (LOGM), which is now the Lutheran Advocacy Ministry, (LAM).
After a few years, Paul and Laura left our community for Colorado and lived there many years before returning to Taos, in northern New Mexico.
As Thanksgiving approaches, I would like to offer thanks for having known Laura. It was with great sadness that I recently learned about Laura's death in April of this year from injuries sustained in a motorcyle accident up in Taos. Here is an obituary from The Canyon Courier
Paul still lives in Taos. Let me know if you would like to drop him a note, and I'll send you his e-mail address.
