Funeral for an Angel

 WICHITA FALLS, TX

September 2, 2016. Lauren Landavazo, age 13, was senselessly murdered while walking home from school with her friend. She leaves behind a loving father, Vern, loving mother, Bianka, and a loving brother, Jordan, and many more family members. She was such an angel and beautiful child that has not got the chance to experience life. I'm asking for any help to lift what burden is possibly during this darkest time. She would light up the room with her smile that never left her face. She was loved by everyone. She was energetic, smart, caring, fun loving, and overall an angel. The world will not be the same without her.

Sorry I haven't updated in a little bit. We are truly and deeply thankful for the love and support they you all have shown. The next couple of days are going to be hard, by with the support from everyone. We are all going to get through this together, hugging and loving each other. You have done a selfless act by contributing to the Landavazo family. They have no words to express their thanks. Continue to keep them in your prayers as these next few steps are going to be hard. But together, we will make it!!

Everyone. Great news!! We are only $250 from reaching our next goal! This is simply amazing that all of you have given up something to help support this family. It is truly a blessing to see people from all over come together in a time of need and show this amount of love and support. From the bottom of my heart I thank you!!

God bless every single one of you!

Hey everyone, just wanted to update you. I stopped by Verns and Biankas to talk with them. They were so happy to see everyone's support. They can't believe that all of you have done what you have, neither can I. We broke the $8000 mark and are on our way to the goal yet again. Please keep sharing and getting this out so we can continue supporting this wonderful family. You have done so much, we can't thank you enough.

God bless

Words cannot describe the suffering our family is going through right now. Even in the midst of this nightmare, we are simply amazed and overwhelmed by the show of love and support from our community and our friends across the country. Your love and prayers are what will get us through this tragic loss of our most precious pooh bear. We have family from across the country here with us and they have all been amazed by the way this community has rallied behind ours and the Smith's family. The people of Wichita Falls are unbelievable and we are forever grateful for your support. Thank you all and a special thank you to Matt Josey for setting this up. Lauren loved you like a brother Matt and you are like a son to us.
