I have too many wonderful memories of Lauren...from her reaching out to help me find a show with other participants, to hiding behind me so Rosebud wouldn't see her, the butt-dialed phone call that ended in laughter, our 3 hug ritual and late night discussions on puppy rearing. She was a true lady, a gentlewoman of our sport and one of the most generous people I've ever known. She had a light about her spirit that brought a sense of comfort whenever you were around her. I don't know if she ever really knew how much I adored her, but I hope she did. To John, her son Beau, her grandchildren, siblings I offer my deepest and most heartfelt condolences. Rest assured you are each and everyone in my and Joe's prayers as you navigate this difficult time. God Bless....
