I am so sorry to hear of Lauri's death. There is so much I appreciated about her. She was always so very real. Our conversations were deep and honest...never any pretense. I will always treasure the times we had together, whether it was a walk around Green Lake, a coffee date or a dinner together. She will be deeply missed.

I was sad to hear Dr. Helmers' passing. She helped us in the endoscopy room with children's procedures. She always had a great sense of responsibility for her job and great work ethics. I will miss her. My condolences to the family.

My condolences to Lauri's family. She was one of the first people I met in residency and she represented Iowa well in welcoming me from Colorado. I am sorry that our paths didn't cross more often.

Cathy and I have many fond memories from medical school, department gatherings, and other times we got together outside of work. I will miss our hallway chats. Kirk and family, Lauri will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Lauri and I were classmates in medical school. We had fun and good times back then, and I enjoyed working with her in subsequent years when she was the anesthesiologist for my pediatric patients. I knew the kids were in good hands with her at the head of the table and we communicated and worked well together. I'm going to really miss her and this is a sad loss for the UIHC.

I knew Lauri as a co- worker for many years. She was always very nice to me and will be missed by many at the hospital. May the great memories with her help you and your family through this very sad time in your lives.

When I moved to Seattle, Lauri was one the kindest and most supportive people I met. She was a joy to be around and I'm proud to have known her. Will always model my care of patients around her example. I will always miss her.
