We have so many fond memories of living next door to Lauren for a few years. She captured our kids hearts right away by giving them flowers, candy and a big smile over the fence. I’ll miss our great conversations about her beautiful flowers and gardens.
We miss you Lauren. Rest In Peace.

I helped Lauren and her family with her pets for years and she interviewed me prior to that help. She was passionate about her pets and she made you think about what and why you were doing certain things for our pets. She lived to advocate for pets worldwide. She pushed ME and the Veterinary Community as a whole to do better and be safer when offering services and PRODUCTS to our “Best Friends”. She will be missed. Always had a smile even after a procedure on herself which became quite frequent lately. It was an Honor and Pleasure to help Lauren and we will all miss you.

Don't be dismayed at good-byes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again.
And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends. - Richard Bach

Lauren and I shared the love for this author as well as our unique friendship.

There are not many opportunities in life where you gain a friend that will consistently stand by your side through both the good times and bad without wavering but Lauren was that friend to me and so many others. My hope is that her friends and family can find peace in knowing that she is no longer in pain and is in a place far greater than any of us can imagine. Prayers and hugs to her friends and family as they go through these tough times.

Good bye my friend, I will see you again.
