I met Lauren when she and I worked at TPN. Never had I met a woman with a brighter smile, a kinder heart or more contagious spirit. We discovered we were both attending Watermark, which was such a joy, especially when you're in a work environment. I felt an instant connection and knew that if I needed to talk, she'd be there.

Years passed and I left TPN. However, I would see her occassionally at Watermark and I also friended her on Facebook. Whether it was in person, when she always had a kind word to share, or virtual and I saw her shining smile in a photo, seeing Lauren always left me feeling the love of Christ.

In the last few years, I watched her walk through her illness with courage and grace, the likes of which I'd never witnessed. She is a true daughter of the King and I will be forever changed by knowing her.

I am sending my deepest sympathies and strongest prayers now during this difficult time.

In Christ,
Lisa Johnson Mitchell
