Laura Morefield fought with strength and determination each step of her 2 2/3 years of colon cancer. She organized and sponsored a Golf Tournament to raise awareness for colon cancer. She died Sunday, July 17th, at 7 AM. Contributions will help the fight against colon cancer.
One afternoon several months before her death, Laura asked her mom to do her a favor. "Please collect and edit my post-diagnosis poems and make a chapbook of them. I think they are my best." Also a poet, Mom agreed, and after Laura's death began putting together a book, ultimately titled The Warrior's Stance after a line in one of Laura's poems. Now, two years later, Laura's book is in print, its cover in Laura's favorite colors, each page headed with a sample of her unique handwriting. The poems, expressed with clarity and self-compassion, speak of love. They are imbued with grace.
