Laurie passed away a month ago, three months after contracting an extremely rare and poorly understood lung disease. She was 58, and leaves behind her husband, two adult children, her mother, her sister, her niece, her nephew, and countless friends from both the physical and the online worlds.
It is very difficult to summarize Laurie’s life in only a few words. Rather, let her blog speak for her now that she can no longer speak herself.
Following this posting are a number of eulogies from family and friends.
Rest in peace Laurie … we love you and we miss you more than can be expressed.
