    Laura Borders was one of my only pieces of sanity at Edwards Air Force Base. I’m sorry I’m in Afghanistan and couldn’t be there for family. Laura goes down as one of my favorite people in the world. My deepest sympathies to family and friends. Laura made the world a better place.

    Laura was a beautiful person inside and out. She was a dedicated fitness specialist who always had a smile and encouraging word for you as soon as you walked into the gym. I cannot believe she is gone. :( My prayers go out to all of her friends, family, and co-workers. RIP Laura, you are greatly missed!

    Laura ran out of gas on her way home from work at the base. She was my friend and co-worker. One of the nicest people you would ever meet. RIP Laura.
