Monroe's Trust

Written by Lauren's sister, Danica Vassigh.

It is with the most profound and deepest sorrow we regret to inform you that our dearly beloved, Lauren Janeé Vassigh, has departed this earthly realm at the still tender age of 43. She leaves behind not just the many who loved her but moreover those whom she dearly loved, most voraciously of whom, is her precious baby girl Monroe Grace, just 22 months of age. 

Unsurprisingly, as the word has spread of this stunning and aggrieving news, numerous people have reached out to ask how they could be of assistance, what they can do, or how they can contribute.  

Upon much deliberation, we determined the most appropriate way for those who love Lauren to demonstrate their love, in a manner Lauren would most appreciate, would be with a contribution to a trust for her most precious achievement, her most cherished accomplishment, sweet baby Monroe.

You will notice that the goal is only $1.0; this is because we do not want people to feel any pressure to contribute.  We establish this in an effort to provide a positive avenue, where those whom Lauren’s fierce presence in this world impacted, can express their love, care, and concern in a manner which would honor Lauren and her dreams for her baby girl best; and that is to support the human to whom she was most utterly devoted, precious Monroe Grace. 

These funds are not for Monroe’s caregivers – they are strictly for the extraneous things Lauren would have done with her and for her in an effort to give Monroe the broadest possible life experiences, which we all know with certainty doting Mommy Lauren would have very much planned and fulfilled. This will be strictly guarded and implemented with an adherence to what we know of Lauren, her verve for experiences and how she would have exposed Monroe to the world.

We also very much want Monroe to have an opportunity one day to get to know her mommy vicariously through those whom Lauren created countless indelible memories.  We strongly encourage you to please contribute as many stories as you wish, which this sweet girl can cling to as she grows and wonders what her Mommy was like. Feel free to construct them as you wish, with photos, trinkets, memorabilia, etc. which you can deposit at her upcoming service celebrating her life. Or even beyond her service should you be so inclined to memorialize her in written form, you can submit them any time via email:  danicavassigh*at*

*Please also keep in mind that the memories you share will also guide us with how we can fulfill life experiences with Monroe using memories of her Mommy’s encounters to potentially recreate* 

Who is Mommy’s little girl…? Monroe Grace!  Lauren and Monroe.  Forever Loved.  Forever Adored.  Forever Cherished.
