  9. My Beloved Lauren,

    I am Yours
    However distant you May be.
    There blows no Wind,
    but wafts your scent to me.
    There sings no Bird,
    but calls your name to me.
    Each memory that has left its trace with me,
    lives forever, as a part of me.

    With gratitude beyond measure, and all the love of the universe,

  11. I'm so sorry to hear about Lauren. Know that she is in the Smoking Section Clouds smoking a cigarette with Kitty. Sending you my prayers. Heidi from 76 Beaver Street.

  12. I just spoke with Jimmy who told you had passed last year and that took a bit of my heart away. It is almost a year you passed Lauren and I miss you dearly. Even though times have kept us apart, we never forget how loving your gentle soul is. This is only one LT and no one can walk in your steps. All the good times we shared at Dillinger's, reunions and parties in the city, I will miss that but more importantly you.

    Though your smile is gone forever, and your hand we cannot touch Lauren, still we have so many memories of the one we loved so much. Your memory is our keepsake with which we will never part. God has you in his keeping and we have you in our hearts. It is sad to walk the road alone instead of side by side. But to all, there comes a moment when the ways of life divide us LT. You gave us years of happiness, then came sorrow and years but you left us beautiful memories that are emblazoned in our hearts. We will treasure through the years, and I will never forget you. All my love and keep a bar seat in the heavens for me. See you again Lauren…

    Scott (Bo)
