Launa and I met in the summer of 1974. (Give or take a year) Her family moved to Edith Street that summer and I still remember when they pulled up in front of their new home....I peeked in the back window and saw three little heads staring back, Jimmy, Matt, and my soon to be best friend, Launa. We became fast friends, friends that would last a life time. I remember the two of us attending a carnival at Newtown school. We both tried to win the special prize of a free haircut at one of the fancier salons back then. Well she won. I guess the disappointment on my face led to the knock at my door a few days later. She had arranged with her mom to take me and get my hair cut instead of hers. Even then, as a small child she had such a giving heart. And she remained that way until March 5, 2018. I never ever envisioned our friendship ending so soon. I just expected, took for granted, we'd grow old together, taking care of our animals. My heart is so sad and broken you won't be here anymore friend.... I love you Launa and for as long as I live, there will never be another you. God bless your soul. Susie
