In Loving Memory of Lauren Meyer

If we could have a lifetime wish

A dream that would come true,
We would pray to God with all our hearts
For a yesterday and you.
A thousand words can’t bring you back,
We know, because we tried;
And neither will a million tears,
We know, because we cried.
You left behind our broken hearts
And happy memories too.
But we never wanted memories,
We only wanted you. 

Lauren was such a bright light & had such a unique way of making a lasting impression on everyone she met. She will be remembered by many...for many different that comes to mind was her love & connection to Nature.  

We came up with an idea to purchase a Memorial Bench with her name on it at the Dubuque Arboretum & Botanical Gardens. The one we have picked out will be in a beautiful wooded area with lots of trees....I like to imagine Lauren would LOVE sitting on this bench with her guitar & that beautiful smile. 

If this is something you would like to be a part of ...and would like to help us purchase this for Lauren's family...we would greatly appreciate your donations. 

The bench is $1000...anything over that will go to  Lauren's family to help with Funeral costs. 

Paul's brother, two sisters, and their families will also be purchasing a tree near the memorial bench in Honor of Lauren. I hope all of you will be able to come & see this beautiful peaceful place. I will update you with the exact location & pictures.
