The years have surely gone by. Laurie, you were blessed to have Michael on your team. Had you not come to work for me at Adventureland , I don't know if your paths would have crossed. What I do know is that you were very deserving to have Mike as your partner and husband., as he with you. And I couldn't have asked for someone better to work with, and I'm sure we all made some very happy memories at the plaza., that we can still talk about. I'm sorry that you're so sad, at the same time, I know your stremgth strength. May you find comforting thoughts of Mike to help you through. 🙏 Love ❤ Darlene
