In the personal effects left behind by Laura were discovered three passports she had utilized over her lifetime to travel around the world. These documents offer a glimpse into the destinations she visited and are among the very few pictures we have of Laura. When looking at them I personally wonder at how age and perhaps loneliness crept into her life. The physical changes evident in her face are haunting to someone like myself who has studied her life extensively.
