I knew of Lauren was her energy. I remember her with a smile on
her face, doing something, doing anything. I particularly remember
her piloting a canoe back and forth as we shuttled gear and equipment
back and forth to the island where we were camped. She was so happy
on the trip and excited about the beginning of the year...
...I remember the first time I met her she found
out that my roommate and I were Canadian. All we heard from her
the whole way down the mountain we had climbed that week was "Blame
Canada, Blame Canada!" from the South Park movie. She definitely
made us laugh...
...My purpose in writing is to relay the information
of my last contact with Lauren. It was at School Meeting yesterday
just before lunch and her departure for the soccer game. Lauren
came to me asking about her time to run an all-sports radio show.
I had reserved the 6:15-7:15 P.M. time slot on Friday for her, and
asked if she still wanted a full hour or just a half-hour. Lauren
assured me that she wanted the full hour and was excited about doing
the show. From the smile on her face, the excitement and eagerness
was apparent to all around her. Her last moments on campus were
looking forward to the future and to participating in that soccer
