thank you for the moment of silence for Laura.
Laura was my reviewer mentor when we reviewed on the same panel in fall 1998. I
have read her book and have thought of her over the years. She was one of those
people who leave an impression....such inner and outer beauty, spirit, wisdom
and committment to helping others.
A few months after the review meeting I had recurrence and now I will start my
own stem cell transplant process on Valentine's day. I hope that I will have at
least a little of Laura's strength and spirit.
