To whom it may concern;

I am Lauren's great aunt and I and her other aunt have each given a donation to the Chicago food bank as requested by the family. Would you please fill out donation cards for each of us as we will not be attending the service. Also there was no where to put in memory of Lauren when filling out the info on the web site. I would appreciate this very much if you would give the cards to the family.

Dear Mike

I am so sorry you have lost your beautiful daughter. As you may know I lost my 15 year old son Brandon a few weeks ago and I can understand what your family is going through.
Things like this make us all realize just how precious love and life are and how we must never take any day for granted that we have with our families.
Hug your family tight every day and remember all the great things about Lauren.
Our prayers are with you and your family.

To Michael, Janice, Leigh and Cydney (Seth):

Our thoughts are with you and we hope to be
with you this afternoon to honor Lauren. However, severe lake effect snow seems to be making those plans look less and less likely as the morning progresses. We are still hopeful to be there today.

In the event that we are not able to drive to Chicago,
we want to send our deepest condolences and honor your daughter in spirit. Lauren was blessed and loved with wonderful parentsin both Mike and Jan. Leigh and Seth have lost a wonderful sister far too early in life and for that, we are truly sorry.

May the love within your family and friends support and console you.
