There are people we meet on our journey through life that stand out and are not easily forgotten. Lauren was one of those beautiful people. She always had a smile and a twinkle in her beautiful eyes. Pretty eyes that she has given her daughter. She had a great sense of humor and I loved the sound her gentle laughter.
Our world will seem less full without her, but our memories of her will always fill our hearts.

When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight. ~Kahlil Gibran

When it comes to Lauren, truer words have never been spoken. Thought we haven't crossed paths in the past 4 years, she will always be my "little Lauren".
