Memories Timeline


  1. We met at LaGrange Middle School in 1972. Lauren has been on my mind recently. I couldn’t find her on FB. Haven’t seen her in 10 or 12 years. But, I’ve wanted to tell her “thank you”. She was always honest; even with difficult information. I’ve always respected her for that unique quality. Condolences to all who loved her.

  2. Heidi, I am so sorry for your loss. Always enjoyed talking to your Mom. Always friendly and helped answer baby questions when Rebecca was couple weeks old. You and your family will be in my prayers

  3. Candle 8Tim, Angela and Family, I am sorry for your loss. God bless and sending prayers. May she RIP.
