Lauren was not only my eldest daughter but she was my closest friend and confidant. After her father died suddenly, she took on the role of helping and guiding her siblings and me, which shows how genuine Lauren was, always putting others before herself.
This has been proven by the hundreds of tributes I have received from around the world. Nothing will ever bring my daughter back. As a family we will never be able to replace the times we were looking forward to; Lauren getting married, having children, all of those things and more have been taken away from us by these two individuals.
