There are many, many things that take place both before and during the Spirit Of Love memorial gathering each year that make it a great event in Laura's memory, and these things do not happen without the kind and giving contributions of others. We would like to recognize and show our sincere appreciation and thanks to the following for coming alongside Other Half Entertainment to make the 2013 event a success:

Hilton Garden Inn Islip/ MacArthur Airport Management and Staff - For their continued fine service and hospitality towards our group as our host hotel

Suffolk County Parks - Location of our Beach Memorial

Westhampton T-Shirts, James and Florence Flood and Staff - For their gracious hospitality during our visit

Hampton Coffee Company - For their staff who always treats our group so well each year

Buckley's Inn Between, Hampton Bays - For the staff's great service and excellent food preparation for our Sunday lunch stop

Tommy Bayiokos - For his faithful attendance and dedication to the event, for the mementos and gifts he brings to each gathering we have held, wine and Greek pastries, his contribution of a written piece for the event program, and for his inspiring words spoken to our group.

Jim and Sharon - Jim, for once again custom-making the BEAUTIFUL plaques which were presented to our Trivia winners; and Jim and Sharon for providing refreshments and snacks for our group

Erika Atsumi Foreman - For her great dedication to putting together the Trivia Contest and accompanying video presentation

Jennifer Douillard - For once again bringing her GREAT LB memorabilia to share with our group

Cinnamon Carriaga - For her AWESOME photography and for also bringing memorabilia from her collection to share

MANY THANKS to those who once again returned to Spirit Of Love, and to those who attended for their first time! It was an honor to spend time with all of you as we remembered Laura. All of you made the gathering a very special time. Also, THANKS TO ALL of Laura's fans around the world, who we know were there with us in spirit!

Looking forward to 2014!!!

Kathy and Vince

:text-coolphotos: looks like a lot of fun and LB would be proud to see her fans remember her so fondly ten years on.
By the way, that's and extraordinary collection of memorabilia!
Well done and I'm excited to see how things go this year, and one day I shall hopefully join you all.
