I remember sleepovers and swim parties in Nannie Ruth's pool. I remember how we belted out the lyrics of "I would walk 500 miles" as we drove home from Six Flags; laughing loudly and in the worst accents ever! I remember that she visited me in NY and she introduced me to Joel. I remember how honored I felt when she asked me to play for their wedding. I am holding tight to these memories of my dear friend, Laurie. Memories flood our minds in times like these to protect us from the grief we feel over such devastating loss. I am praying with you for peace and strength, and may your fond memories of Laurie comfort you always. Love to all.
