Jonathan, we are very sorry to hear about Lauren's passing. Your family and the Sterlings will be in our thoughts and prayers. It was a priviledge getting to know Lauren, she will be missed.
Cynthia and I were saddened to hear of Lauren's passing, as were all of us in your extended "Duke family." At times like this, I especially regret the geographic separation that prevents face to face meetings, or even a hug. We hope the thoughts and prayers of so many for you and your children will be of some comfort in this difficult time.
I met Lauren on my 1st day of graduate school at the Univ. of Miami. We became instant friends. I remember two of her quirks, 1: how much sugar packets she puts into coffee 2: how she does not sign greeting cards so you can re-gift the card you received. We were both at each other's weddings, a very precious day to both of us. This was a very hard few days for me as this is my first "peer" to be affected by this horrible disease. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Perlman and Sterling families. May there always be a silver lining when thinking of our dear, "Lauren."
I'm so sorry to hear about this. Though I did not have the privilege to meet Lauren, she must have been an exceptional person. Our prayers are with you and your family.
