Daughter’s death brings new life


We would like to personally thank our neighbors in Thornville, Glenford, Somerset and New Lexington for the outpouring of love and support since the death of our daughter, Lauren Wright on July 4th. The candlelight vigil, cards, letters, and donations have been a great source of comfort to our family and have shown us firsthand what caring people live in this community.

From Lauren’s death has come new life... the founding of Rise Above, a mentoring and support group to stop bullying in our schools. It is our hope that we can continue to draw our communities together and fight hate with kindness in Lauren’s honor. www.riseabovelkw.com
