      Laurie died on February 28 surrounded by her family.  Her last posting here was about donating her body to science, which we were able to do.  Laurie often shared her postings here with me, her sister Mary, and I know how much this forum meant to her.  Thank you all for the support, companionship, information and courage you all shared with her.  Your final postings to her in January were lovely and a real tribute, and she got to read them.  with gratitude, to the warriors online from Laurie's family

                  Thank you for letting us know. Laurie was such a special person and I got a lot of help and hope from her posts. In her last post she was looking forward to spending time with her loved ones. I hope that Laurie and your whole family was able to have that quality time together and that she found the peace she so richly deserved.

                            Oh, Mary, I'm so sorry to hear this.  I know you have a big, supportive family and will encourage one another as you go on without Laurie.  But it won't change the reality of having lost a sweet sister/daughter/wife/mother.  It stuns and frightens me when I hear of people who were "only" Stage 1 at diagnosis eventually succumbing to this monster we call melanoma. 

                            Thank you for taking the time to let us know about Laurie's passing.  May the peace that passes all understanding be with you.

                                  I offer my sincere sympathy to Laurie's friends and family.  Laurie and I communicated some since I was born and raised in MA.  Sad stuff……..

                                  She will be missed.

I also remember how she suggested a farewell bell ringing when Kevin passed, it was a great tribute. So, in honor of Laurie, and the fight she gave, and the love she shared, I will be ringing a bell in New York. God bless your family, Valerie (Phil’s wife)
