It is with great sadness that we share our families are mourning the death of our Lauren Brooke Tresp on Saturday, January 2, 2021. Lauren was a beautiful soul, her Daddy’s little girl, always. She made us all laugh, cry, and wonder. Although she has left this earthly place, our pain is eased with the knowledge that not only is she in Heaven above with our Lord and Savior, but she is joining her grandparents, uncle, cousin and she is finally able to hold her own little daughter, Athena Renae. Lauren leaves behind her father, Mark Tresp, her mother and step father, Melissa and Philip LaRoche, brother, Zachary Tresp and his husband Anthony Tresp, sisters, Brittany Hill and her husband Harold Hill, Maggie LaRoche, and Nicole LaRoche, grandparents, uncles and aunts and her adorable best buddy, her chihuahua, Snow, who will all miss her terribly. The family will celebrate Lauren’s short, but powerful, life in private. We ask for your prayers as we all deal with this loss.

In lieu of flowers you may make a contribution to either: White Horse Recovery at PO Box 487, Center Ossipee, NH 03814 – or MWV Support Recovery at PO Box 202, Intervale, NH 03845 –, in order to help others and their families who suffer from addiction. Donations should be made in Lauren’s name.

This past two weeks have been the absolute hardest time of my life.
I have been going from grief to hurt, anger to sadness and despair and back.
I have questioned what more could I have done and nothing seems to make sense.
What I do know is that I will miss my Lauren more than I can possibly imagine. My love for her is and will always be what I dreamed of “Daddy’s Little Girl.”
This Girl put me through every emotion I have over the years from intense frustration to unimaginable pride and love.

I wanted to share something that happened today.
I got a sign from her today and it is the only way I can describe it. Last week I watched this show called Surviving death on Netflix. This is really a documentary but in one episode it was about signs from loved ones that have passed. I looked outside and was hoping to see a Red Cardinal land as a sign that Lauren was at peace … nope didn’t happen. I waited and waited and I hoped but nothing.
Today I was in my office working I looked around and I picked up some of the pictures we had out for the memorial service and I noticed this old tape recorder. This still had the recording of Lauren and me going at it about her room and school and other things. I listened to it for a minute then looked out the window and not 5 feet from me sitting on a branch and I am upstairs was the brightest Red Cardinal I have ever seen. She was just sitting there staring at me and I know it was Lauren saying I am sorry and I will see you again Daddy and I love you.

My dear friend Lo,

You were such a wonderful friend and always lifted me up with your positive energy. I always looked forward to visiting you at Porta Di Roma every Sunday with the Starbucks gang. We love you so much and miss you dearly. I’ll never forget your welcoming presence and wonderful hugs. You were such a great friend and an amazing human being. I’ll always hold you close to my heart. Rest In Peace beautiful angel ❤️

I have sat pouring through videos and pictures of us as kids for the past week now. We were lucky kids Lauren, to get to share so many wonderful adventures with each other. At times those would include our parents and sisters as well. But the most special ones are the ones that were just you and me. Those ones are what will help get me through the next 50+ years of my life without you. I promise to live a full happy life for you. Until we meet again baby sister.

Lauren is my oldest little sister who taught me more about compassion and kindness than any human before her. She is the brightest spot in so many of my childhood memories and I will always remember her laugh, her inappropriate jokes, and the way she lived life with every ounce of passion in her. I'm unbelievably heart broken at the loss of my sister but I find peace knowing that she has been made whole and is living carefree with Athena Renae in her arms once again. Lauren, may you be at peace, may you feel the overwhelming love from everyone here on Earth, and please watch over us, your family. We miss you today and always have you in our hearts. I love you, Lo. Until we meet again, baby girl! XO- Britt

Lauren, you made me feel so welcomed the day we met. How you would light up a room with your smile and laughter.

Just remembering, a beautiful, strong, and caring young lady that, truly loved her family and friends so very much. Thank you, for including me in being part of your young life. I will cherish our time we had together forever.

Sending my thoughts and prayers to your family during this time.

May the wings of the angels hold you and Athena tightly together, now, and forever.....

Gone to soon, but never from our heart……

Lauren, my Goddaughter…..

I was so honored when Mark and Melissa asked me to be your Godfather.

It has been amazing being in your life, I would not have traded it for anything in the world.

You were so special to me and, I know I was special to you as well. I will always cherish that special bond we had together.

When we would see each other, you would always put a huge smile on my face and make me feel better with your beautiful smile, shiny eyes, and laughter. I am really going to miss you sweetie, especially the hugs you would give me.

You have touched so many people in this world and, for that I am grateful to have been one of the many.

God has a true angel up in heaven now.

I miss and love you sweetie.

Oh, Lauren...

I wish I had met you earlier in your life when you may have been more easily influenced. It took you quite some time to trust me...but I like to think that you were sincere when you finally saw that I truly cared about you and wanted to help you manifest a good, happy life. I always felt that with some challenging changes, a bit of courage, stubbornness channeled into determination, and love from your supporters, you could amaze even yourself.

I really enjoyed the times that we did get to do things together (getting our nails done and the time you went to that church event with me) and the times you opened up and shared a little bit more of yourself while visiting. I’m glad you had a chance to meet and stay with my family during Thanksgiving one year. I really wanted you to feel like you had even more family and to be inspired and encouraged. I’m glad that you watched and enjoyed some of the classic movies that I suggested to you. That meant a lot to me.

You didn’t always appreciate my advice, but I hope you know that it was always with your best interest in mind based on experiences I had already been through. I know that is hard when you just want to be grown up and independent. Parents just want their children to avoid the hurts and pitfalls that they have already seen during their own life journey.

Your dad loved you SO very much. Way more than you ever realized. His love and hope for you never failed. We prayed for you regularly and often. He really wanted you to realize how much he loved you and wanted you to have a long, happy life.

I pray that you have now found peace and are reunited with your beautiful daughter. Sending you much love...goodbye, little fish.

Lauren, Lolo, Sissy Bear,

The sadness I feel is something I have struggled to put into words these last few days. I know that your bright smile and colorful personality would want me to recall my favorite memories of you rather than dwell on the fact that you are no longer here.

Lauren, you were my childhood bestfriend. From our beauty lessons in your bedroom, the “wilderness adventures” where you convinced me I could never go home, and of course, spending way too much time fighting over who loved the Red Sox more (I think really it was just who loved Johnny Damon more).

Lo I miss you more than I can put into words. I am so thankful for our last FaceTime - you could always put a smile on my face. Keep shining bright pretty girl and rest easy ♥️ I will carry you with me wherever I go. Love you Sissy Bear
