Is it true that kids at school gave the driver such a hard time after Lauren died that she had to leave school early that day?
Sorry for the loss to Lauren's friends and family, but I'm sure the driver is hurting too, even though it wasn't her fault (evidently).

Lauren Gist was a former student of ours in Ayer, Ma. She was one of the nicest and most kind-hearted students I've ever known. My sincere sympathies to all who loved her during this time of such tragedy!

Lauren Gist was very special to my family. She was such a kind hearted young lady, full of fun and lots of laughter. My son Corey and I were blessed to spend some time with her when she came to Ayer this summer. I had the pleasure of watching her at times when her mother had to work. I'm truly devastated by the loss of such a beautiful person. I will truly miss her, but Lauren will always have a special place in my heart. More than you can imagine because my family and I purchased the house that she and her mother lived in. My deepest sympathy to her family!

----The driver murder someone who never did nething wrong. the driver wasnt paying attention. they hit her and left her on the side of the road,SOMEONE else saw a girl laying in the road and called 911 and everythingg. The driver didnt she just sat there didnt even care about lauren.
So she needs to be givin a hard time!

Days--weeks--months--a year--now almost 2 years have lasped since Lauren has been gone. My heart bleeds with every thought of Lauren. Such a devine angel that God blessed us with. Life will never be the same. All the laughs, stupid jokes, and of course the serious conversations on every topic --what a delight... that space stands VOID..No one can ever forget that million dollar smile. Her touch was so short but everlasting in my heart. In a distance I can hear your laughter..Oh how I Love you still

All wrong! The driver who hit her was not at fault she was on her way to school when Lauren ran across the street in front of her vehicle.

As far as her not stopping, wrong again! The girl immediately pulled to the shoulder and stopped. She was there when the police arrived.

I think you need to get all the facts before you point a finger and place blame. The driver has to live her whole life blaming herself for Laurens death. Sad for everyone!
