Lauren's Legacy

Kind Words: From NHS Students

Dear Candace,

I am a sophomore attending NHS. I had the greatest privilege of seeing your daughter every day at pre-season and at practice. She was an amazing player. She made soccer seem like this graceful ballet routine. I cannot say how much I grieve for you, your family and all the people who touched both Lauren and your life.

My position is a right fullback. At the game, I looked back to see Lauren with a smile stretched from ear to ear, a true sign of her happiness and contentment. Yesterday I looked back at Lauren all suited up and she said, "I love this team!" She said it with such dignity.

I feel close to Lauren because we gave each other the gift of laughter. I prayed to God when she went down.

I thank you and Lauren for letting me be touched by her. She was an amazing person with a radiant personality. Lauren is now my angel. I feel her presence watching over me and a sense of safety. She is an arch angel with a halo and wings that loves us all still.

I am honored to have played with Lauren and to have made her smile. May she rest in peace.
