I remember the first time meeting Laura and she introduced herself as “Laura Anderson. That’s it.” Of course, I was taken back since everyone around the room including upper management and senior leaders had already introduced themselves and said a little bit about their position, background, etc. Little did I know this display was indicative of her eminent character and that she would become not only my boss, but my mentor and friend. My thoughts are with her family and loved ones. Please know that her service not only made the Nation a better place, but her legacy will continue on in many of us who had the pleasure of serving alongside her. She did not simply go to work every day; she went to battle – for the mission, the program, the company and her people. Laura always followed the maxim of mission and people first. If Laura was a school, then there would be dozens of students who will continue to embody her quintessence of professionalism and caliber. May her family take comfort that she was not only surrounded by coworkers who valued her each and every day, but by beloved friends who loved her and all she stood for. Even though I truly miss her, I take some comfort to know that when it’s my time to be called, I will be able to find Laura again as I am certain she will be running some department in Heaven. May she rest in Peace. God Bless.

Our friendship dates back to freshman year of high school - I was literally the "new kid on the block" coming from the midwest to the DC area. Laura and I had a great time then and that friendship -- she is and always will be a part of me. She remains that connection to my past - a forever friend. My love and heartfelt prayers for Tom and the family. Blessings on the life and legacy of a beautiful woman.

I am so sorry to hear of Laura’s passing. Her son Michael and my daughter were in band together in high school so Laura and I were band moms together. My sincerest condolences to her family
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
Margaret L. Collier left a message on January 13, 2018:
So sorry to hear of Laura's passing. I send thoughts of sympathy and support, to the Anderson family, as you begin your journey without her. Laura and I worked together at the NEDCTP. She was an extraordinary, intelligent and knowledgeable lady. There was no project that was too much for her. She accepted, and completed, any challenge that was presented. As you grieve, please know that I am honoring the memory of Laura. God Bless, Margaret Collier

Laura was a valued co-worker and a stoic, get-it-done type of personality (with of course her sharp wit). The courage and steadfastness she showed throughout her illness....wow. She always downplayed her own struggles to make sure her clients and co-workers were taken care of...our condolences and prayers during this tough time.
Sue left a message on January 12, 2018:
Laura was not only a mentor but a very good friend. There are so many things that I will miss....her sense of humor, our talks about horses, our IM venting sessions, her ability to deal with any situation....but most of all...I'll just miss her. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
Al Geils left a message on January 11, 2018:
I never had the chance to meet Laura but have dealt with her on the phone and in emails. She was always very kind and helpful to me which I appreciated and will never forget. She's had a direct impact in keeping people safe in this Country due to her hard work. She'll be missed but not forgotten. Thoughts and prayers to the family. May she rest in peace.

We have fond memories of the first time we met Laura and Tom. They were the first couple we met when we joined Northern Neck Sailing Association. We sat together at our first dinner meeting, and Laura made us feel so welcomed and comfortable. I remember enjoying her dry wit, and hearing her stories of her horses, and of sailing over to Chrisfield. Later, when she was on the board of NNSA, her organization skills and contributions were invaluable for the club's activities. Laura is so fondly remembered.

I recall fondly my first day on the job with the Program, eight years ago, to the day, this coming 01 Feb. It was at our old TSA HQ digs in Arlington (I do not now even recall which building or floor it was), and it was also moving week for the switch to the eighth floor here at the Oracle Campus in Reston. Laura simply handed me a roll of packing tape (after proper introduction, of course) and then she pointed at a large pile of open, freshly packed file boxes across the walk-way, down the corridor, between the cubes, in the corner. That was enough [not] said for me. And off to the boxes I proceeded post-haste. I knew at that moment that we were going to get along just fine. Laura was my primary mentor during those first few confusing months as well, as I knew a smidge already about procurement, contracting, quality assurance, logistics, and the like, but did not have the foggiest notion, really, of what an NEDCTP actually was. A true Professional and also a kind and considerate Human Being was she. Yes, she will be sorely missed.

Jon Erwin left a message on January 10, 2018:
I got to know Laura while working at the K9 HQ in Reston. With both of us living in the Shenandoah Valley at the time, we had many conversations about Winchester and the commute into work. She was such a sweet lady, always willing to help. She will be deeply missed. The family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
Mario Alberti left a message on January 10, 2018:
