When I first asked Lauren’s family for permission to write this I had loads I wanted to write but now I’m here I’m lost for words…….
Lauren Heath- a beautiful girl, a mummy, a daughter, a fiancée and loads loads more!
On Wednesday 13th April,2016 Lauren was tragically killed when she was struck by a hgv lorry in reading, Berkshire, moments before the collision Lauren used her last Seconds to push her beautiful little girl in her pram out of the lorries path, saving little Millie’s life!
I only had the pleasure of knowing Lauren for 6 months or so but in that time I came to know her for the funny, lovely and very kind girl that she was, a very dedicated and devoted mummy too! Millie is definitely a very blessed little girl!
When I read that Lauren had passed it broke my heart as it did for thousands of people everywhere, as a mummy myself I d like to think that I d have done the same as Lauren did for Millie that day, Lauren you are a true hero in every sense!
9 days after the tragic accident was to be Millie’s 1st birthday, a day all mummy s build upto and go crazy getting everything ready for the big day! Lauren sadly did not have the opportunity to see Millie’s first birthday but her daddy grandparents and family made her day truly memorable with Lauren being a huge part of her special day.
An amazing family with such strength and love, a community who truly pulled together for Lauren to have a true hero s send off, her beautiful final journey across reading was lined with purple and pink bows and balloons (Lauren’s favourite colours ) as a mark of respect for her final goodbye……
A farewell page was set up in Lauren’s memory and thousands and thousands of well wishers paid their last respects to a beautiful young mummy. A gofundme page was also set up for Lauren’s send off and the rest for a trust fund for Millie when she grows up reaching a massive £20k plus and still rising!
As a reading girl born and bred I am truly amazed and proud of our little town and how much we have all pulled together in such a tragic event you should all be very proud! I know I am!
I think I ve covered every part of the wonderful, amazing, beautiful, selfless, hero that Lauren was and I’m sure Millie will forever be shown and told all about her amazing mummy!
To Lauren’s family, her fiancé Kenny and her beautiful baby Millie, you truly were blessed to have Lauren in your lives and forever may you find some comfort in the knowledge that you have a beautiful angel watching over you all forever……….
All that’s left to say is….. Lauren it was a true pleasure knowing you and may you rest in beautiful paradise Angel….👼
