Laura Somoza: 'An Angel of a Friend'

When I am sick, she comes to my house with food. She cares for my kids like she cares for her own. She goes out of her way not just for me, but for family and strangers as well. Her two children both have disabilities. One is autistic (high functioning) and the other is bipolar. This doesn't bother her at all. I see what she goes through with them everyday, and to tell you the truth I don't think I would survive. But she looks at it as a gift from God, and God gave her children to her because He knew she could take care of them.

At church she volunteers with the youth and tries to keep them in church instead of the streets. Laura does not just care for humans but for any of God’s creatures. She is such a dedicated mother, sister, daughter, wife and friend that she deserves the best. I tell her this all the time, and she replies, "My treasures will be in heaven." God has blessed me with an angel of a friend.
