[font=Arial]Hi everyone,

The 2008 Spirit Of Love Memorial Gathering kicked off on Friday afternoon with a variety of video footage including the following:

    Record Guide TV show hosted by Laura as she was promoting the Touch album

    Disney's The Living Seas: If I Were A River

    The Johnny Carson Show: Performances and Interview

    South Shore Music Circus: Soundcheck and Interview (Hold Me Tour)

    Arthritis Foundation Telethon

    Good Day LA performance

    Performances from 1986 Vina del Mar, Chile

    Perfromances from 1988 Vina del Mar, Chile

    Una Vez Mas, Chile: Performances and Interview


After our dinner break, we headed out to the Hamptons beach for our first memorial for Laura.

Upon our return, we viewed video of Laura rehearsing with her choreographers for her Hold Me Tour, followed by her rehearsal with her band for the tour.

Next, we watched the never-before-seen Meadowlands performance from June 1998, with rave reviews from all in the room. A stellar performance - Solitaire, The Power of Love, and all never sounded better! 8) :boom: Thanks so much, again, to the anonymous fan who provided us with this awesome footage!

We ended the evening enjoying Laura's music videos!

[font=Arial]Hi MariKate,

Actually, J T took the quiz, but was not in the contest this year. We were VERY VERY VERY impressed with Kate's effort this year. :D She took it very seriously and her knowledge of things LB resulted in her great first place finish! And, Kate's efforts didn't stop there... as all of us were witness to her making it a point to take notes throughout the weekend to prep for future trivia quizzes. Now THAT'S dedication, and I once again commend Kate!

Kathy

[font=Arial]Hi Walter,

That was so nice of you to phone the hotel. Unfortunately, we did not receive your message. Perhaps with Sunday's activities taking place outside the hotel and not in the meeting room, plus the fact that we had checked out of the hotel on Sunday morning, since we were beginning our journey home that evening after our tour in the Hamptons was complete, the hotel staff did not know how to reach us.

Again, it's nice to know you were thinking of all of us with your call! :)

Kathy
