Today's packed church was but a small testimony as to how much you are loved. Thank you for letting me be a part of Lauren's young life. Your family has had a great impact on mine. I was blessed beyond measure to watch Lauren and Hillary grow at Wood. I thank Jesus that He chose for our paths to cross. I love you.

To The Millican Family, Beautiful, Precious Lauren, worked with us at Legacy In The Village, she was the first person clients would see as they entered the door. Lauren was a "SWEET SPIRIT" in a busy and crazy world, her smile radiated along with her wonderful attitude. Her laughter was HUGE and she always did her best to try to accomodate us all. I am so sorry for your loss and the unbearable pain that comes with it. Please know that our Savior Jesus Christ is FAITHFUL,may He keep you strong, close and blessed with the great memories of Lauren that you have. In deepest sympathy,

My thoughts and prayers are with Lauren and her family. There are a whole bunch of LBR Boxers waiting for her on the other side. I'm sure she is surrounded by wiggling nubs right now and that they are celebrating having their newest angel join them. She will watch over our babies until we all meet again. God Bless Lauren and her loved ones during this very sad time.

I cannot imagine the heartbreak you must be feeling. I am so sorry for your loss. I keep picturing Lauren as a little girl - remembering the friends sharing in talent shows, birthday parties, sleepovers.....what wonderful memories they are! My prayer for you all is that those heartprints that Lauren has left with you will bring you some comfort in the journey without her physical presence.... I am so very sorry.....

I want to express my sincere sympathies to all the family. I cannot imagine your feeling of loss at this time.
I knew Lauren from being one of her elementary grade Sunday School teachers at St. Peter & St. Paul Episcopal Church. I remember her sweet smile and personality and enjoyed seeing her grow into a beautiful young woman from watching her across the pews at church in later years.
I hope you find some comfort in knowing others are thinking of you and Lauren at this difficult time.

Pam, Scott, Hillary and Ryan - my heart aches for you all. One of my favorite memories would be Cougar Cheering Days...what fun we had, getting the girls all pretty, in code, no violations, right socks, buckets, bows--and oh yeah, we watched the football game a little! She always was ready to go, beautiful smile, beautiful warm girl.
