You can check out pics of Lauren’s altar for Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead (a Mexican holiday – folklore/tradition says that the gates of Heaven open at midnight on November 1st for all the children that have died to be reunited for the day with their loved ones. The following day, the adults come down to earth to celebrate) at the link below on Tumblr.
While this wasn’t exactly on the list, I know that it would have been something that Lauren would have loved to have added to #LolasBucketList
Our dear friend Scott ran with #FlatLola on the back of his cape, “On the wings of an Angel” ❤ in her memory ❤
My friends never cease to amaze me! Thank you Scott! xoxo
Nancy is my hero. While we weren’t able to physically make it to Florida back in July for NB to help us out with #LolasBucketList, she continues to amaze me by crossing more and more items off the list.
Lauren wanted to get her port removed so badly. Though I tried to avoid the conversation, she knew deep down that it would be 1) too dangerous for her to go under any general anesthesia to remove the port and 2) we might (and we did) need to use it to administer medication at some point.
Thank you Nancy for taking Lola along with you!
Below is the tribute video that we played during Lauren’s Celebration of Life — it was originally about 50 minutes long, so I have broken it down to three different videos. I know they are long (about 15 mn each) but so worth it. I really worked hard on getting the right music to go along with the pics. Enjoy =)
Part 3 may not be available (as of this writing) via mobile because of music copyright laws. I have disputed it (usually resolves within 24 hours or sooner). So if you can’t view via your iPad or smartphone, please check back later or change over to your computer/laptop to view.
I will be posting pics and video of the celebration itself after I get everything in one place and have some time to compile it all.

Lola, your life is an inspiration. Thank you for helping me live life to the fullest. I know this was already done but here is one for your beautiful bucket list, YOGA ON THE BEACH!
Thank you Maya!!! #LolasBucketList #LoveLikeLola
