Lauren's Legacy

Kind Words: From NHS Adults

Dear Mrs. Neale-May,

I am one of the varsity girls soccer coaches here at New Hampton, and as a result, had the privilege of knowing your daughter, if only for a short while. I don't know if what I have to say about her will offer you any solace during this terrible time, I only hope it will.

What I remember about Lauren is so simple, yet so defining of who she was. I remember bringing my sister's dog Herkus to practice. Herkus is a year old Husky, and to sum it up, can be an extreme pain and annoyance at times. I remember Lauren sitting with Herkus the whole practice, and I remember how calm and playful he was with her at his side.

I remember always seeing her smiling despite certain hardships she may have faced on campus. Always a smile; she loved her short time here.

I have worked with children who have had problems in their lives, and there is one thing that you can see from a child from the minute that you meet them: you can automatically see the love they had in their life. Of the little I knew of your daughter, I knew that she had the aura of a happy and loved child. It is a peace which can only be derived through the unconditional love of a parent to a child. Obviously you loved Lauren greatly, as obvious was the fact that she loved you in return. I just want to thank you for giving her that love, and allowing me to witness something like that in a child.

My heart is with you as are my prayers. If you have any questions or need anything, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
