If I close my eyes, I can still hear her greeting me. "Hey, Rebs!"

No one else ever called me that - it was her special nickname for me and I am blessed to have it. Lauren was always so easy to be around - she always knew how to be the right amount of silly. She always referred to herself as an honorary Rotino sister - and she will forever remain that way.

I am sharing a picture that we took together at the 2018 BEA Retirement Dinner. I'm pretty sure we spent over an hour taking selfies and Lauren cycled through all of the Snapchat filters that evening. We had a great time - always laughing - always smiling.

With much love and the deepest condolences,
