    We are thinking about you at this very difficult time. We feel privileged to have met you and Laurie at Hospice and to have been together to comfort each other and to share our difficult journeys. Laurie was a wonderful lady and lucky to have had you always by her side – we are thankful to have known her and to have been part of her days if only for a short time. She will always be in our hearts and we hope your memories of her will soon be more happy than sad. All our love to you. Debbie, Stratos and Gabriella in Athens, Greece
