Everyday your in my heart and mind. In math we think if you when we tried to learn the pathagerum theorem and we just walked out on you. I still remember it(a^2+b^2=c^2) like it was yesterday but it was two years ago. I miss you do much. I wish you would come back please.
Lauren was my teacher. She was my favorite one. She always was funny and had a smile on her face. There is no replacement for her. She has a lot of zebra stripes in the classroom. I will miss her a lot.
I spent a lot of time observing Lauren teaching in Minneapolis. Her passion and her radiance were rare gifts, and she will be missed terribly.

I had Ms. Mcdougall in fifth grade for reading and math. She was really funny and a really good teacher. She will always be in our hearts.
Lauren was such a lovely young woman. I am so glad my daughter, Brianne found such a great friend in your girl! You are in our prayers during the days and months to come. Brianne plans to keep in touch ... and continue the Color Run in Lauren's memory.
My sincere condolences to the McDougall family. May you be blessed with many beautiful memories of your daughter!
I only knew Lauren for a short time, but I was always so impressed with her teaching skills and her joyful personality. She was a true motivation! I am so sorry for your loss.
I don't know you by name or any of your family. Hopefully we have met at the IAOM conferences. I don't know your pain or really know how you will deal with pain such as this. I did not know your Daughter Lauren. Lots of things I don't know but I believe we are all interconnected. Some of your daughter Lauren is alive in all of us but especially in your immediate family. I hope you believe as I do that we really never die unless we all die. Take care of yourselves . Selflessly I need to express the sorrow I feel for your family.
Lauren will live on in the memories of those she loved and those who loved her.
My most sincere condolences to the McDougall family.
Tim and Susie-
I am very sad to learn of your loss. My condolences.
We have just read the sad news Melinda sent us this morning. May the soul of Ms McDougall rest in peace.
The saddest news of the new year. Sorry for your loss. Rest in peace...
You were one of the closest friends I ever let in, and one of the best that I could of have ever asked for. I will forever cherish our inside jokes and memories, and will try my best to pass on and keep your energy and spirit alive. I love you "girly girl."
Ms McDougall was a great teacher. She was funny and played lots of games with the class. I will miss her.
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.
I have just read the message that was sent by Melinda . We are very sorry for your loss. Our prayers go out to McDougall family.
Reading the comments made by others supports my belief that Lauren was a wonderful young woman. I find it very hard to express how sad I am for the family and friends of Lauren. Believe me you will be in my thoughs and prayers.
May God's peace fill your hearts, Our prayers are with you.
I will never forget the way you lit up a room with your very presence! In middle school and high school we were very close! You were the life of my 15th birthday! You stood by my side always, even when others didn't. I will never forget all the crazy fun memories!!! Love you always. You were an amazing friend and so much more!
Our prayers go out to the Mcdougall Family. Rest in peace Lauren.
It is so sad to hear of your passing. Thank you so much for helping my son Anthony. He was in shock when I told him about your passing and you are very missed. He said a prayer before bed the other night for you asking god to watch over you because you were very nice and helpful.
It was a pleasure to work with Lauren at Target. She always seemed happy and had a smile on her face. It sounds like she has touched so many lives in her short stay here on earth, and as parents you should be really proud of raising such a great daughter! I pray for peace and comfort for your family.
Thanks Lauren for being such an awesome friend. I am going to miss you but I know that you are in a place where you are watching over us. I can see you singing and playing your guitar for all of the angels that you are with up in Heaven. Rest in Peace my good friend Lauren.
You were a beautiful girl and a wonderful friend. You will be missed. Watch over those remaining here as we wait till the day we may see you again. God bless.
You were a really good teacher! I will miss you so much. My prayers are with you. Love Josie Knoll
To the McDougall family, I'm so sorry to hear of your sudden loss. It looks like little Lauren had grown to be quite a fine young lady! I remember babysitting her & Ryan, they were the cutest, sweetest kids! Words can't express my deepest sympathies to you all. My thoughts & prayers go out to you & your family.
Lauren & Family & Lincoln Elementary,
Though I did not know Lauren, she has touch me in a very profound way. She has touched the life of my great neice, CeCe & I hope that as a human being and as a teacher her spark & her spirit will ignight a passion in her studants and those that love her that will never be forgotten. There can never be an answer for when God takes someone we love so soon from our lives. Nothing that can make sense out of what seems to be the natural order of things, especially when we need that person & Lauren of course was so special and gifted. We can find the beauty in what she was able to give in the time she was here, and be grateful that God took her gently.
Peace be with your family at this time, God bless.
I will miss her very much. She was my Math and Reading teacher in 5th grade at Lincoln Elementary. She would always bring smiles to my friends and I. Always nice, and never mean. Prayers go out to her family. You will always be in my heart Ms. Mcdougall!
My deepest and sincerest condolences go out to the McDougall family. I worked with Lauren at Target Monticello - she was such a great person to work with, always positive and upbeat. I know that she will be missed by many.
Life is eternal, and love is immortal
And death is only a boundary line,
And a boundary line is nothing,
just the limit of our sight.
I remember Lauren's smile. And energy. She was born to be a teacher. I enjoyed watching her teach after school students in my room while she was student teacher at Hall School in Minneapolis. She was a joy and I will miss her deeply. The students and I called her Ms. McDoogy. We loved her. Bless you sweet Lauren.
I miss her so much. She was a math teacher to the 5th graders to get a head some what and had many fun memories of throw paper airplanes down our hall and winning the "game" of making the best airplane. I'm sorry for her family and friends and students.
You are a beautiful, caring person that brought joy to many! I am so happy I had the opportunity to meet you in college and share Urban Block, teaching at Hall Elementary! -I saw the impact you made on students there, and cannot imagine how many more students' lives you touched. You will be missed!
Thoughts and prays from Florida!
Hey, Doll! I couldn't have asked for a better partner than you. I know that you're in heaven now, saying "I like it!"
Lauren will be remembered as a Beaming Glow of Self Confidence and a Wonderful Creative Singer and Guitarist.
Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to all our cousins on the loss of Lauren.
Tim,Susie and Ryan I am so sorry to hear about your sweet Lauren! She was such an amazing young lady, her smile always made me smile:) she will be greatly missed! I will keep you and your family in my prayers. Susie please call me if you need anything or just need a friend to talk to.
Lauren was an inspirational teacher, a valuable colleague, and a blessing to her Lincoln students. I will miss her camaraderie.
I have heard of what a great teacher she was in her short time! My daughter Corina was in her class the beginning of this year and learned of how she likes zebra stripes and she played her guitar for the class and let them know that she had auditioned for American Idol! what a great influence she was, may she r.i.p. :) prayers and love for her family
You were a beautiful women that glowed as bright as the sun. You will be greatly missed!
Ms. McDougall was a fun teacher. I enjoyed her games, lessons and reading to us. I will miss her and am glad I was her student. Tucker T.
Susie and family,
We don't know why these things happen, only God knows. My heart aches for you and your family. Although I never had a chance to meet Lauren, she must be very special to God. I can imagine the pain you are feeling, but rest assured, that I will be praying for you and your family, for God must have very special plans for Lauren. And remember, you will see her again, someday, in heaven. May Jesus carry you through this difficult time.
Lauren, you were a natural born teacher. Your students are very blessed to have had you! You will be greatly missed by all of us- the hallways just aren't the same without your smile.
I was so sad to hear the sad news of this beautiful young woman passing. As I parent I can't imagine how your family must feel...I pray it brings them comfort to know that you were an amazing person and loved by everyone you touched.
Words can not express the shock and disbelief I am feeling. Lauren worked on my team last year at Lincoln Elementary. She was the sweetest, most positive person. Lauren was born to be a teacher...such great ideas and you could tell she truly loved what she was doing. The staff and kids all loved her. I am so sorry for your loss. She will be truly missed.
Elk River, Minnesota
You were a beautiful person to get to know throughout our college years. I'm so glad I got the opportunity to get to know you better our final year during Urban Block. We all are in shock and you will be truly missed by all of us! Thank you for going into education and touching so many lives. You are a beautiful, passionate, caring soul that was taken too soon.
Even though your time at Lincoln was short, your impact on staff and students will not be forgotten. I will miss seeing your smile every day. Rest in peace.
I was blessed to know Lauren as she taught down the hall from me last year. She had a spark that lit up everyone around her. I'll pray that all of you, her family and friends, find a new normal with her watching over all of us from Heaven.
I didn't know u but u were a great inspiration to my daughter Julia. So sorry for your lost. Lauren will still be carrying out her teaching with all the other little angels that have left this earth way before their time
Susie & Tim,
So very sad to hear about the loss of your beautiful Lauren. Gary & I both hold you in our hearts & prayers. She's your angel watching over you now. Hugs to both of you.
Lauren, You were a pleasure to work with last school year. If anyone was meant to teach children, it was you. You will be missed and remembered by so many. May your family and friends find peace in knowing how many lives you touched.
It is so hard to believe that you're not with us anymore. You were a loving friend, devoted teacher, and just an awesome person to be around. Although you're leaving us earlier than I would like, you've impacted more lives than you know. As a teacher, I know you always wanted to make a difference. You definitely accomplished that and then some! You affected everyone who knew you in a positive way. I always loved that about you.
You were my child`s teacher and protector, you will be forever in the hearts of these children. You will be remembered and missed. Bless your family for having such a great daughter as you are!!

I've known you since you were three years old. Every time I saw you, you had a smile on your face...and laughter! You fit so much into your short 23 years on this earth little lady, and they were all good memories for those who knew you...and not nearly enough for your family & friends. I bet you are playing a song for God on that guitar you were so proud of. Thank you from all of us who were touched by your bright light.
Miss you Lauren, you were an amazing person, one I was honored to know and call a friend. I'm sure your playing your guitar and singing for all the angels. RIP
We will all miss you Lauren thanks for being a good friend and coworker.

We all had a fun time at Buffalo Wild Wings with the Target group after a nite at work.
I remember one night in the backroomat Target Lauren came back to throw her cardboard away I was comming out of the freezer she ask me is it cold in there? I say no it is summer in the freezer and told her next time she should come in there and help she says no I pass then I say I will put a heater in there to keep it warm in there she laughts at what I said and she says oh dave your soo funny with a big smile on her face. That made my night.
I didn't know Lauren on a personal note but I did have a few classes with her in high school and she was an amazing person and will be truly missed.
Rest in Peace, sweet Lauren.
