    4 Although I never knew Lauren, I think about her everyday.
    4 I think about how much darker the world is without her spirit.
    4 How this innocent 13 yr old was ripped away from her family, friends, and future.
    4 I think about how this beautiful girl would have changed the world with her light.
    5 Without ever knowing Lauren, I miss her every day.
    4 My heart bleeds for her parents.
    4 So many people's lives were forever changed that horrible day.
