I met Lauren a couple months ago and knew immediately that I wanted to be friends. She was warm, funny, interesting, gracious, and loving of my dogs who couldn't leave her alone. She joined us for dinner and before we were even done eating she was one of us. It is inconceivable to me that she is gone. My deepest sympathy to her family and good friends. — Martha Sellers (Belgrade, MT)
