Of course, I am the queen but that’s a matter for another day.
This is the last picture we all took together and I think it’s a wonderful one (Duh, I know). She’s wearing the nifty Rapunzel wig she got on spa day at Children’s and it looks fab on her. And yep, that’s Mr. Duty with the shortest of hair on Lauren’s left.
Odd as it may sound, I am so looking forward to celebrating her on Friday and Saturday. What a legacy of love she has lived and left behind. I will write more about what this past week has been like when the emotion has abated a bit for me. I spent last week crying the entire time (seriously) and this week I am just sort of accepting her not being around to email stupid crap to or tell me that creating a “My Space” profile is, uh, loser-ish.

… teehee, I’m sorry, I feel so bad for teasing you about the mySpace, but I just can’t resist! you even have your own page there? I think this is a subject best dropped for now, haha, before I have to *gasp* disown you or something!! (oh, you know I would never!) ;)
well I’m sorry your visit had to be delayed :( (and that I had to miss out on yummy yummy pudding, boohoo) — wish I could’ve seen you and Nunc today!! but it was probably for the best, I was just falling asleep and waking up and breathing hard all day, blah, nothing fun :(
Anyway, the best news of the day is that I *finally* got my ChemoAngel!! La suggested I do this several months back because I told her I thought I was overwhelming her with “stuff” and love and more “stuff”. She said “You’d make a great card angel!” so I signed up, I think it was back in November. I just had a feeling after Lauren passed away on Sunday that I would get my angel assignment and so it was. I promise to make her proud of me.
Oh, and La? I got the angel thing you dropped on the floor for me to find last night. Bitty paw backatcha.
