A funny memory I just thought of (in addition to my other wonderful memories of my sweetest cousin) is that Laurie was the only person I ever knew who could eat a raw lime! At a restaurant ordering drinks, Laurie skipped the drinks and just ordered the lime ! Then ate them! She LOVED them! Too funny!

A funny thing I just remembered about Laurie (besides my other wonderful memories of my sweetest cousin) is that she was the only person I knew that could eat a raw lime! When we ordered drinks at a restaurant, Laura would skip the drink and just order the lime slices! And actually eat them! She loved them! Too funny!
