Laurie was intelligent and insightful.  I remember something she said that has always stuck with me.  She was reflecting on how a sewing project came together in stages (sewing was something we shared and enjoyed in 7th grade Home Economics at Sears).  She said there’s the messy beginning and then the part where you imagine the result being just perfect and wonderful and extraordinarily great.  And then there’s the finished product.  And while the finished product is wonderful, it’s never quite what one might have imagined.  The reason this has always stuck with me is because Laurie was remarking on our need to accept and appreciate how things turn out. 

I think about it every time I do a project.  I think about it with appreciation for how things are, how they turn out,  and for Laurie’s perceptiveness in making me aware of the hazard of unnecessary disappointments.

Such a lovely person.

Hospes quod deico paullum est asta ac pellege.
Heic est sepulcrum hau pulcrum pulcrai feminae.
Nomen parentes nominarunt Claudiam
Suom mareitum corde deilexit souo.
Gnatos duos creauit. 
Horum alterum in terra linquit
alium sub terra locat.
Sermone lepido tum autem incessu commodo.
Domum servavit.
Lanam fecit.

I had a huge crush on Laurie for a couple years, finally got the guts to ask her out -- she said yes - and we had one great pleasant date - kind and fun!

I knew her from many classes, admired her and am trully suprised and saddened by the loss of this sweet lady - I hope her husband's doing ok ---

These last couple years we've lost so many classmates - crushing and discouraging!
