She was a strong woman who, unfortunately, lived in a weak body.
P.S. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in her name:
I look forward to going back through her blogs when I need them the most. She was a wealth of CF knowledge for me. She will truly be missed.
(I was one of her babysitters when she was a little girl.)
I have followed your blog from the beginning. I am so sad to see you go. You fought so hard and well - good job. I know that you are with Jesus now and that He is giving you a hug and saying "well done my good and faithful servant." You will be missed by many people here on earth, including me.
I will continue to keep your family in my prayers.
Greg and Lori
When you are better able, read through the many remembrances and condolences on cf.com. She was so special and so loved.
Many people are blogging their rememberances of her today, also. It's been very special to honor her life.
I pray that God gives you peace and comfort in this time of loss. I know that Lauren is finally at peace and can truely "breath deeply" with no more pain and discomfort.
Brad, I never met you, but knew Lauren from birth through highschool. The time we did spend together she impacted my life in many ways. We were on majorettes together and went to church together. No matter what she was dealing with at the time, she would always have a smile on and be determined to not let CF interfear with her life. I regret not keeping in touch with her after school. I pray that you find peace and know that Lauren is finally free from CF and is watching you from above.
Lauren you will always be missed!!!!
I have such fond memories of Lauren. She was truly a treasure of a person. My prayers go out to you. I'm so glad that she is breathing such beautiful air in Heaven!

Lauren, I hope you are breathing deep breaths of love tonight, as you leave the body that failed you, to find the weightlessness of being at peace. Your faith and trust in God has been an unreachable goal of mine, to find the certainty that you have, the absolute knowledge that even when we come to the end, we find a beginning. For the little I knew of you, I loved. And I know you of all people have found what you were looking for.
In her name and in my kiddos name, I know we will find a cure. And because of people like her, reaching out, seeking knowledge, spreading knowledge, we will get there someday. I'm thinking of you. xoxo Elise

My prayers are for you now, Brad. My first husband was born with CF died at the age of 43, 3 months after his successful bi-lateral lung transplant. God only knows how we have missed him and wondered why his story ended so soon on this earth. But Jesus has been our strength and comfort through it all. Some day we will be reunited.
Blessings to you and Lauren's family.
She can breathe easy now. For all the CF'ers out there.
I am sending you much love and light. Lauren meant so much to me. My daughters, Danielle, 17, and Sarah, 14, both have CF. We have all been touched deeply by her faith and absolute tenacity. I'm wishing you peace and love in your loss.
Love and Light,
P.S. To Lauren- Thank you for your willingness to share your strength, your courage, your faith and your life with me.
