Laura always did her utmost to welcome me to her home and make my stay in Manhattan or at Spring Lake a memorable one. She got everything lined up, including dispatching my cousin, Rick with a newspaper to sit in Macy’s shoe department while we ladies did our dress shopping! Sorry not to be able to be there with all the family in these days. I will miss Laura and our chats on the phone. May she rest in peace now, though no doubt she will be keeping watch over Rick from heaven. Maria in Dublin
