Bless this child. Bless her family to find strength to look to another day.
I did not know this child or her family, but I have prayed for her and her family everyday since I learned of her circumstances. Her fall was at a moment that many of us felt a very un-natural serge of wind power - grocery carts were sent astray, mothers ran to take cover w/their children, trash cans moved, pets hurried inside and lawn furniture flew. If you were outside at anytime during that gust, you KNEW its power. It was at that very moment this child and her friend were running for cover or to their car or somewhere for protection, and a tree limb falls crushing one of two children. She eventually showed no brain function, declared dead, and then her parents gave the gift of life - her healthy young organs were donated to save others across this country. Families are rejoicing as their child has been given a chance to live.
Remember that moment. Be grateful and give thanks for your fortune.
Remember this 16 year girl as your own, and pray for the graciousness of her family as they begin to heal.
And pray for her friend, the person with her. She needs consideration, love and compassion as no one would want to be in her shoes.

I didn't know Lauren directly either (my children shared common friends with her) but my deepest condolences to her family and friends on their loss. I cannot begin to imagine the pain they must be going through.
