The hearts of the Return to Freedom team go out to the family and friends of Laura Allen-Bold, whom we were privileged to know as a dedicated advocate for wild horses and talented photographer.
Laura died December 23, 2016, at age 52. She wanted her obit to say simply “The End,” but there is so much more to say.
She was deeply loved by her mother Mikel Reuter and step-father Bill; her father Bob Allen of Boise and stepmother Verla; her brother Greg Allen of Spokane and sister-in-law Carrie, and their daughters Samantha and Jordan.
Loved by siblings in Boise: Brenda Hanson, Mike Westover, Miles Christensen and Danene Thompson. Also many nieces and nephews whom she loved and received much love in return.
Laura was an artist, a singer, a hair designer, a traveler, a spiritual searcher, an activist in the quest to save the Mustangs, and a warrior in her fight with cystic fibrosis. She loved life, her family, her friends and most especially her dog, Scooter.
Beyond continuing our work on behalf of the wild horses that she loved, there is perhaps no better way for RTF to celebrate Laura’s memory than to share with you some of the wonderful images that her keen eye and open heart helped her capture here at our American Wild Horse Sanctuary.
