Laura Poggioli The Girl with the Heart of Gold- 49 years old

(Staten Island, NY)
My best friend for almost 10 years, succumbed to Leukemia yesterday - she was only 49 yrs old. She took me away to Vegas for my 40th birthday. I was taking her on a cruise for her 50th. She didn't make it. I'm mad I'm sad I wanna hit someone... She was the best dog sitter, my poor Jetta is gonna miss her. She wasn't married, she had no children.. but she meant so much to me. You never had to ask her to do something, she always volunteered. I will miss her "hellloooo" every time we spoke on the phone.
