Dear Laur, wish you were here today.

Dear Lauren, You left us too soon but you made a beautiful, indelible mark on so many of us. I remember your poise and grace at We Day Vancouver in the fall of 2014 when you participated with enthusiasm and such positive energy despite your own challenges. You will be missed and your memory will live on in the heavens and the stars of a sparkling night sky. You are free now, soar high! With love, Gregg and Debb

Dear Wilmot Family, We recall our introduction upstairs at the Glencoe Club as the four of us watched below our youngsters scurry and smash around the courts exploring a potential new sporting endeavour together under the skilled master Chanrong. I remember young Lauren to be graceful of spirit and determined on court. That moment seems a lifetime ago. Although Connor graduated with Lauren and Drew the year after, we were only aware of the fact that your family and Lauren were on a journey involving a health challenge and that you had chosen to approach his with privacy. Both Connor and Drew were concerned then of course and you have remained in our prayers, as you all are now. We were saddened to hear of Lauren's passing but uplifted to read the beautiful tribute on this page -- what an impressive woman. We hope that your fondest memories will comfort you along with the love and sympathy we and so many others send with great care today.

To the Wilmot Family - Our daughter, Kate, played badminton with Lauren when they were both in Junior High. Lauren’s spirit was undeniable and her natural athletic ability was immediately obvious to all of us. But, what my husband and I were most struck by were Lauren’s natural poise, radiant smile, and how very proud her parents were of their beautiful daughter. Our prayers are with all of you…Kate & Scott MacFarlane, & Laurie Tamagi

The immense sorrow of Lauren’s passing is deeply felt by our entire family. With her journey cut short she has left a large chasm of sadness filled only with the recollections of what an incredibly special young woman she was. Our many memories of Lauren are all of happier and more carefree times – we will cherish them forever.

To the best person I'll ever know. I love and miss you more than I can say. "Things aren't all so tangible and sayable as people would usually have us believe; most experiences are unsayable, they happen in a space that no word has ever entered." - Ranier Maria Rilke

To our darling daughter, It is a year since you have left us and there isn't a minute that goes by that you are not thought of. Thank you for a wonderful twenty and a half years. Life has changed forever not having you with us but we are forever grateful for the time we did have. You touched so many lives just by being you. Your warmth, kindness, compassion, strength, sense of humour, grace and positive outlook is remembered by all. We had the best family anyone could ask for. You enriched the lives of everyone you met and always left a lasting impression. We are sorry you had to go through all you did; it all seems so unfair. We are so proud of you and all that you accomplished in your life. Thank you for being such a wonderful daughter and for making our lives so much fuller. Your loving parents forever.

To my best friend, Today would have been your 23rd birthday. We would have celebrated our combined birthdays together, with Lara, just as we have since we met. It is hard knowing that for every coming year there will always be an empty void that nothing can fill. But, we will continue to celebrate, and to remember the incredible memories we had together. We remember your strength, your bravery and courage, but most importantly your heart and the incredible kindness you displayed to everyone you met. I carry your heart with me Laur and I miss you more than words can say. Happy birthday, my girl.
