Over the years I have written several posts for Laurie, never gave it a thought that I would have a last post on her site.   It is with a sad and heavy heart that I share with you that Laurie Manny passed away after a brief illness this week.   Laurie was a wonderful woman, a mentor and friend.  Her friends and family are in shock and we all will miss her.

Laurie Manny always did things on her own terms and was a brilliant mind.    She has spoken at Inman, California Assocation of Realtors and many other venues to teach Realtors to become better bloggers.   There are many bloggers in the Real Estate Industry that owe their success to Laurie's instruction.

For those clients of Laurie Manny, Geoff McIntosh, Laurie's broker at Main Street Realtors is available to service your needs.

For her friends that want to pay tribute to this incredible woman, the Manny family has yet to make public any arrangements.   As soon as we have that information it will be posted here.

To see the many tributes to Laurie, please visit her facebook page.

Let's celebrate Laurie's life on Thursday September 9, 2010 from 5-8 pm.....



 Laurie Manny had so many friends in Southern California that we thought it would be nice to have a Memorial Celebration  for Laurie in Long Beach.  On Thursday September 9, 2010 from 5-8 pm  there will be a celebration of her life at Parker's Light House on Shoreline Drive in Long Beach Ca.

This will be an opportunity for all of us who loved Laurie to share stories, hugs and lots of laughs as we remember our dear friend. Laurie loved Parker's Light House and we will be on the Patio overlooking the water and the shoreline where Laurie took so many fabulous photos. 

We will be providing appetizers and there will be a no host bar. The dress is Beach Casual. We are requesting no cameras or blog posts.  This is a special time for her family and friends to share their memories.

We have set up a Laurie Manny Memorial Fund for those who would like to make a donation.  I know there will be tons of flowers at her services in New York and we will be providing flowers in Long Beach so we thought that perhaps her friends might like to donate to a fund that will go to her family.  Your donation will not be tax deductible as you are sending a gift to a friend.

 We had thought we would be able to set it up with a national bank but the paperwork was more then seemed necessary.  Marlene Bridges is at her home in Palm Springs this week and was kind enough to inquire at a local bank and set up the account there.

Make Checks Payable to:   Laurie Manny Memorial Fund

Mail to:  

Attn: Tellers

El Paseo Bank

The Market Place

39580 Washington Street

Palm Desert, CA  92211

We plan to close the account on October 1 and distribute the money to the family at that time.   We will also have a place where you can make a donation at the Memorial Gathering in Long Beach for those who will be there.

If you have questions you can contact Kaye Thomas, Lynda Eisenmann or Marlene Bridges .  We hope to see you next Thursday!
