    My sympathy to the family on the loss of Lauren. I really enjoyed talking with her when she would help bag my groceries. I’m sure your lives will have a big hole where she is missing but I am praying the good memories of your time together will help fill it up and bring you comfort.

    Sending my love to Pat, Mike, Megan and all of Lauren’s extended family. When God passed out hearts I think he gave the biggest one to Lauren. Lauren was an inspiration to all who knew her. Her smile and sense of humor radiated in every room she walked into. From the onset of her Wolframs Syndrome as a middle schooler until the last time I saw her on Halloween her spirit and positivity never ceased. Lauren was always asking about others and concerned about their well-being. I will miss her more than my words can express. Knowing she is no longer in pain, can see and hear again and is wrapped in God’s arms gives me comfort until we meet again.
