Lauren was a daughter, a sister, a grand-daughter, a great-grand-daughter, a niece, a friend, a scholar and an athlete; she was wise beyond her years, an "old soul." She was kind, smart, funny, and always wanted to help. It's immeasurable how many lives she touched and influenced in the 16 years she was with us. She believed goals were accomplished by working hard, and was kind to those who struggled and needed her help. She was a leader amongst her peers, and she is greatly missed!
