To the family, I am truly sorry to hear of the passing of Dr. Laura Petty Burrell. She was a women that I admired and had tremendous respect for. She was one of my Sunday School Teachers, teacher at Rockdale High School, but more importantly, she was one of the Vernon Street mothers. It was an honor and a privllege to grow up in the same neighborhood with her children. Vernon Street was our village and helped to shape us children into the people that we are today. Farewell for now Dr. Burrell but we shall see you again in that great Getting Up Morning when all the Saints will be reunited. Much love to the children and may God bless and keep you during this difficult time.

To the family of Dr. Laura Burrell. I am so very sorry for your loss. Dr. Burrell was a delight to have known. I have been thinking of her lately as I drive through the neighborhood where she last lived in Bryan, TX on Trophy Drive and wondering where she was these days. I met her and the Rev. Burrell at my job as an insurance agent @ Anco Insurance in Bryan, TX. She was truly an inspiration to me. She was so very kind and intelligent. You all were very fortunate to have her as your Mother. From all of the tributes that I have read about her I know that she instilled life's values to all of her children. God Bless all of you. My thought and prayers are with you as I know this is a very difficult time for all of in the loss of your dear Mother. Dr. Burrell will truly be missed.

To Edward, James, William, Madelyn and families;
I am so sad to hear the news of your mother's passing. She was one of the best high school teachers I ever had. I had her for Biology I. She was so smart, witty and made learning fun. I remember taking lots of notes in her class and dissecting a frog. James and I graduated together in the RHS Class of 1976. She called me about 8 years ago when she read one of our son's wedding articles in the newspaper. What a great teacher she was and I am so thankful that I had her. R.I.P. Dr. Laura Petty-Burrell.

To My dear Aunt Laura’s siblings and children, we want to express our heartfelt condolences. We didn’t see each other much over the years but we do have fond memories of our summer trips to Texas as children. As we grew into adulthood, my siblings and I could always depend on our beautiful Aunt to share birthday and Christmas well wishes. Aunt Laura’s love for family and her Faith in the Lord was boundless. Much love Marjorie (Smith) Fennell AKA M2
