I’m so saddened to her of Lauren’s leaving. I remember her as such a kind, hard working, and perservering young woman back in high school, when she was going through so much. I hold her dear to my heart and always will remember her easy smile and care. I hope for you to hold warm memories of her and a softening of your sorrows.
