To Lauren's family,
feel the need to talk to you, to tell you what I saw in Lauren.
It is the one true thing I know about her: she was beautiful. By
that I mean she was full of beauty. Her smile, her energy, her dedication,
her enthusiasm - she was simply beautiful.
Lauren's English notebook includes personal writing
that you may wish to save. My heart breaks as I write this - her
first assignment was a eulogy; how she would wish to be remembered.
Perhaps this is something you'll wish to read. Her notebook is among
her personal belongings.
Words are often useless, devoid of value. While I
feel the helplessness of my own words, they are the best I can offer
She will be missed.
In deepest sympathy,
