Life goes on…..

080

Five years ago we didn’t know how our life would change…with a phone call…and less than 24 hrs later.  But life goes on…

Time stood still in the hospital…as we begged, pleaded, prayed, cried….as we talked to Doctors…

As we tried to understand what was going on…what had happened…and what the prognosis was.

But life goes on…

We were running on auto pilot…in a daze…in a fog…in total disbelief…when she “died” the next day…

A day that irrevocably changed our lives forever.

But life goes on…

Our days are now “remembered” and “judged” by that date…

March 7th 2010…

The day forever etched in our brains…in our lives…in our hearts.

But life goes on…

Life goes on as usual…for most people…for most of our friends…except 3 friend’s families…who are “living the same life” as us.

We couldn’t wrap our minds around our life without her…

for 5 minutes…

for 5 days…

for 5 months…

 and certainly not for 5 years.

But life goes on…

You have to put it to the “side of your mind”…because you can’t live…with it always at the front of your mind…. YET, it never leaves…it is always there…it is so hard.

But in order to function… to not go crazy… to stay out of the “deep, dark pit”

and to live the rest of days on earth… we have to…

Because “life”, such as it is for us now, goes on.

Lauren…We Love you till the end of time…

  3. I continue to give thanks for/to celebrate Lauren’s life. And, to pray for the ongoing healing of your hearts. With love, hope, prayers…

  4. You are all in our thoughts and prayers, especially today. Of course I always remember when Meredith got the message on her phone about the accident, but then I start to remember happier things- Lauren babysitting for us and how much my girls loved her, how welcoming and wonderful you and Bryan were to us when we moved to Lufkin, and how much impact your family had (probably without you ever realizing it). Please don’t ever think she will be forgotten.

    • Thanks so much Beth for sharing your memories. I hope you all are doing well…I’m sure your girls are so “grown up” now. Lauren enjoyed baby sitting the girls.
