  4. Dearest friend,
    It was a Blessing to have such a wonderful life long friend. I have always been so happy we met at Incirlik AFB when we were so young. I remember us as the best dressed little girls at Easter service when we were only 7 or so. I smile when I remember how we shared our Monopoly game and wrote If found return to Lauren Smith or Jeanne Brazer. We even had our addresses on that game. I cherish these memories of you. I still have the savings bond Arlene gave me for HS graduation! I still remember “our” mom and I driving 14 hours to your wedding with Dave. What a trip! Even when we were living separate lives it was my joy to be able to visit you and Dave in Germany. To meet baby Denise and later to have you serve as my maid of honor and Denise as my precious little flower girl. I will still think of you always and keep you in my heart.

  5. CandleImageLauren was a bright light in our lives since 1966 when we lived across the street from the Smith family. Jeanne and Lauren were best friends and Lauren called me MOM#2. Lauren and I both shared January birthdays and we stayed in touch even when living miles apart. Jeanne and I were blessed to be able to attend Lauren and Dave’s wedding in Louisiana and had other memorable visits through the years. Lauren will always be remembered for her caring ways and big heart…..Our family was so blessed to have her and her sweet little family as friends. Lauren and Denise came to Pennsylvania to be in Jeanne and Bob Farrell’s wedding and made more precious memories with us. Lauren’s Mom Arlene was able to be there as well. Dave, Lauren and Denise visited us in Oklahoma and we always enjoyed being with them. Our love and prayers to the family and open invitations for future visits.

  6. I will always remember Lauren’s wonderful smile and happy ways! I think of all the Thanksgivings and Christmas celebrations in Bellerose, NY when her family drove from Willingboro to NY every year with much traffic getting to Bellerose. We all had a great time and always happy to see Lauren! May you Rest In Peace, wonderful cousin. You were born on my father’s birthday. I will always think of you when I think of my dad on his birthday. Love, Carol and Dave

  7. My brother used to bring fellow GIs when he visited me in McComb, Ms. One day he brought Lauren. It was the best choice that he ever made. We will always love and miss her. We send all of our sympathy to family and friends.
