I really don't know where to begin writing about Laurie Boncimino. Over the past 48 hours or so, I've finally been letting myself reminisce about the countless times we had together. Up until Saturday morning, I refused to begin 'remembering' her because we weren't 100% sure about what happened. But now that we know, I'm slowly letting myself look back at what she really meant to me as a friend.

Yet, I still don't really know where to start. So I'll just start typing and see what happens...

I can't tell you how much that girl means to me. I keep thinking about all the inside jokes we had, all the time we spent laughing about absolutely nothing, all the intense conversations we had about God, all the video games we played, and I could go on.

For all intents and purposes, Laurie was my best friend. Even when we went through stages of not seeing each other for a period of time, it didn't matter. We could pick up right where we left off, and we never felt that anything had changed between us.

I look at her picture and I still don't believe she's gone. I keep expecting to wake up in the morning and have things back to normal. I had just seen her last Sunday and she seemed like the normal Laurie. Happy, funny, the way she had always been. What really bothers me is that I can't remember what our last hug was like, the last look she gave me, or the last thing we said to each other.

I miss her so much already.

I'm realizing right now as I'm writing that I'm going to need to write about Laurie all week. So this is enough for right now....

Thank you so much to all my friends who have prayed for, loved, and supported Laurie's family through this tragic time.

And thanks for walking with me through all of this.
