Laurie was an Englewood kid like me.  We played together in elementary school and dance school.  After losing touch for many years, on our 50th birthdays we found each other and took up our friendship where we left off. We kept in contact for a few years after that.  Sadly, I learned of her death when I tried to contact her regarding Nancy Czerwinski's passing.

On joining the military, Laurie told me that she "wanted to be independent."  She said she wanted to retire several times, "but they kept giving me these great jobs."  Finally, she was trying to get her house built, and the military called again with yet another great opportunity, and she said, "I just started crying."  (laughter)

I am so proud to have known Laurie and I thank her even now for her service to our country and for our friendship.
