From time to time, I have to pinch myself to realize what a blessing the Club has been in my life. How blessed I feel to have made such dear friends. And it’s all because of you! Thank you for creating such a positive force in my life. Your inspiration, grace and dedication will always be treasured.
For the kind words, the wishes, the caring….I am truly humbled….I have known so many of you for a long time. Enjoyed the many occasions that have brought us together. Saddened when sickness has interrupted our lives. There as friends to console and support. I have so many memories to store and treasure. …The friendships you have formed or will in the future will enrich your lives as they have mine………Always love………Laurie
You are such an inspiration to us all. Since I became a member several year ago The British Womens’s Club had played a very important role in my life and I have made some wonderful friends. What would I do without it.?! I have so enjoyed knowing you and I wish you every happiness as you leave us. You will be truly missed.
I am grateful to you for staring this club. i would never have met such wonderful friends had it not been for you.
I wish you many Happy Years with your family.
Much love to you. I will miss you and your lovely smile.
Your loving smile will be missed at our monthly meetings. You will always be “Our Queen” and I wish you lots of luck with your move.
My dear Laurie,
How you will be missed! I will always remember the first time I drove to a BWCBR meeting at Mizner Park, in 1999, and I wondered how I would fare at 60 years old. It was the best thing I ever did in my move to Florida. I was always welcomed back to the Club after I returned from long spells helping my daughter during her pregnancy. The warmth was so genuine. Now, loving wishes to you, Laurie, in your move to New Jersey. I have so much enjoyed your company , your fabulous dress sense and ladylike manners. That may sound old fashioned, but it has meant a lot to me and many Club members. You always set a standard to be admired.
Much love and very best wishes. Judy xxx
I was very sad to hear that you were leaving Florida and moving to New Jersey. I will miss you very much but I understand you need to be close to your family. Sometimes in life we are fortunate to meet a special person such as you, and your kindness and elegance has been an inspiration to all of us. You leave behind many happy memories, and we will always have the photos
Wishing you much love and happiness,
Ann F. xxxx
To Laurie my dear
You’re leaving I hear.
Your beautiful face,
And sweet air of grace
I will sadly miss
So I’m sending a big kiss!
With tears of love,
Being part of the British Women’s Club , watching it grow and become more diverse, has been a pleasure for me for so many years, and it’s all thanks to you and the small group of early members, of which there are still some stalwarts left. We will miss you – you have always been an inspiration and guiding light. God bless.
Love from Kathy Fryer
I will be forever grateful to you for creating our wonderful British Women’s Club. Without it my life in Florida would be miserable! So sad that you’re leaving. You will be sorely missed.
LAURIE, full of grace, charm , elegance . A caring, supportive ,organised lady who is always interesting and interested in you and yours.
We shall miss you but you remain in our hearts.
Best wishes for the next faze of your life, dear Laurie.

Terry and I wish you the very best of times with your family in New Jersey. I will always remember you, and your lovely black
and white statues of Edwardian ladies that you displayed in your apartment. Just like those at the races in ‘My Fair Lady’
If ever there was a ‘Fair Lady’ it is you, Laurie. Please keep in touch. God Bless. . . Love and hugs, Joy Wright xox
I will miss your timeless elegance, and beautiful smiley face. Thank you for starting the bwcbr, thank you for being a role model for us all, and thank you for being the amazing Laurie R-F, that we all know and love.
You will be so very, very, missed.
Love always, Linda S (Past President) xxxx
You will be greatly missed. Our meetings always have an extra special meaning when you are present, but I know, even with the distance, that you will be with us.
You are leaving but your legacy will continue to thrive in the wonderful and capable hands of this fantastic group of British Women.
I am happy for you that you will be close to your family. Enjoy them, and live life to the fullest.
Take care. Wishing you all the very best of everything as this new journey of yours begins.
With much love,
Claire x x x
We can twin with the NJ British women’s club just as soon as you set it up!
It was only last month I had the pleasure of sitting next to you at Lunch n’ Such. What a wonderful luncheon companion you are, our lunch zoomed by so quickly. Now, how super to be with your family, and sad for us, as we will miss your laughter, quick wit, caring voice and above all your elegant self.
With hugs and love, Monica
My dearest Laurie,
I was truly saddened to learn of your relocation to New Jersey; selfishly I will miss your visits to our meetings, they always take a special turn when you are in attendance. Since my membership began in May 2003, you have always lead with passion, integrity and sincerity. Laurie, you have been a beacon of light for many Brits over the years; members current and prior, and sadly those who have left this earth. You have provided abiding leadership, that as current President I aspire to replicate; Laurie, my friend you are a tough act to follow indeed. I for one will miss hearing your full and contagious laugh!
On behalf of all of our BWCBR members I wish you the very best of luck. I know your family will be so very grateful to have you close by in New Jersey.
‘There are no goodbyes for us. Wherever you are, you will always be in my heart” Mahatma Gandhi
My fondest best to you,

21 years ago when I answered your advertisement, I had no idea that BWCBR would be as successful as it has become. Your inspiration made it happen. Do they have a British Women’s Club in New Jersey??? I will miss you very much and wish you all the best for the future.
