She was born on June 10, 1963 and was to be my only daughter. One was enough, she is that special. Initially, I didn't realize how lucky I was but when she was followed by three boys, it became quite apparent. How precious to have a daughter. I have always been thankful for our time together, our like interests, my joy when I hear her laugh. Even better when I make her laugh. She is a wife, mom, noni, sister, aunt, and friend to all who know her. She is a very creative writer, sews, knits, paints, and gardens. She has a dog, a cat, and chickens in her backyard. I am describing one Hell of an interesting person and I am both proud of the person she has become and priviledged to know her and call her my friend. I love you, Laurie. Happy Birthday.
