    To Laurens family,

    I want to say being one of Laurens best friends was a privilege. Lauren was a person who I could trust beyond compare, like I could tell her anything. she was truly one of a kind and there will never be someone to replace in our hearts. once she had a place in your heart, it wont be removed, like its a designated Lauren spot. after spending so much time with her over the summers, she turned into more than just a friend, she turned into basically a sister. if I could turn back time and relive those summers I would and I would spend more time with her before she passed. I will miss Renny so much. and if she has internet in heaven she better read this. I miss you, and ill see you later. Then we can talk. to Alex and Nick, if you need someone to talk to feel free to email me one this email. and to Rob and Leslie, my condolences and prayers go to you, I could see how much you love her an you are great parents. there seems to be no greater pain then to lose your child.
    my thoughts and prayers are always with you,
    a sister to Lauren,

    Victoria

  27. Hello,
    I was walking in the park (fish creek) today and noticed your new memorial bench with the balloons tied on to it. I read the plaque, and saw the date. I didn’t even know your daughter, but I was touched by the message non the less when I thought of my own four healthy kids 5, 7, 9 and 11 and so I walked home the rest of the way with a little lump in my throat. Beautiful message.

    My heart goes out to you and the rest of your family. God bless.
