So sorry for your loss. I didn't know her. But I saw the News article. I hope the drunk driver spends the rest of his life in prison.

To the entire Wegner family, My thoughts, my love, and my heart are with all of you! I'm very saddened to hear about the passing of Lauren! St. Peter's wasn't just another grade school. It was a family. We all knew one another. Whether it was because of siblings in other classes or friends in different grades, we all got to grow up together side by side. I will cherish the memories I got share with Lauren as well as the rest of the Wenger family!! Love, Jeff
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I was so very saddened to hear of the passing of Lauren. She became my friend when she was at Buffalo Brothers. We bonded over Goo Goo Dolls and life. Even though I was old enough to be her Mom, I considered her a dear friend. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. Nancy Turner

Mr. and Mrs. Wegner I am so very sorry to hear what happened to Lauren. I saw the story on the news tonight, and it made me very sad. I remember her on the volleyball court at Niles West when I coached her on the Varsity Team. Lauren had a very successful career. I'm sorry I didn't make it to the services, I just heard about her passing tonight. I am praying for strength for you both during this very tough time. Stacy Roth

Dear Evelyn, I am contacting you as the Mother of a Deceased 48 year Daughter. I just want to reach out to you as I DO know your pain. My Daughter was the victim of The University of Chicago Hospital ICU Staff Negligence and died before my eyes. She was a nurse & mother. You, Evelyn, are Not Alone and I offer my Prayers & Thoughts as you make this difficult journey of trying to survive each day without your Beautiful Daughter, Lauren. Take each hour at a time & know many mothers who have lost adult children are with you. Your Daughter was Beautiful and will Live Inside Your Heart. Say Lauren's name & tell others to do the same. So many people wish to not say "Lauren" so as not to upset you. But you don't want her forgotten. Please contact me on FB if you wish to speak to me, because there aren't many Mom's suffering our loss. "Mothers Who Have Lost An Adult Child":are here for you, Evelyn. We are with you, on FB, too. With ALL MY LOVE & SUPPORT for you, Lauren's loving Dad & your family. Melody Bishop-Hochevar

Bill and Evelyn, I just read the story in the Sun-Times this morning. I'm so very sorry for this terrible loss. I didn't know Lauren except from what you would tell me at the Super Cup, Bill, but it was clear from those anecdotes how very much you both love her. You're in my thoughts and prayers, my friend.

Lauren, you have taken a piece of my heart with you and I can’t understand why you are no longer here with us. Uncle Rolie and I have enjoyed being with you this last year with so much happiness and laughter, especially the skunk encounter! Your zest for life was contagious and every time I saw you it would bring a smile to my face. You’re beauty, energy and caring soul will remain in my thoughts forever! You were a free spirit and now you can ride in the wind with all the animals you loved so much! Love you sweet Lauren.

i just wanted to reach out to laurens mother and family to give my deepest condolences. My heart literally fell this morning when i heard the news and toldmy mother. my mom sandra mcneill worked with evelyn for years and ive known lauren for years because of that. Lauren and i first met through our moms at ring you kid to work day. We got back intouch in highschool where we would hang out together with mutual friends for years. She then dated a friend of mine brother for 5 years in north carolina. The last time i spoke with her was last year just to catch up. After 25 years of knowing each other, she was always a positive and heartwarming person with always a bubbly personality. i will truly miss her and my heart goes out to her family at this time. -shannon mcneill jankowski

Wegner Family, I can’t begin to fathom your pain. I remember when Darrell and I first moved into the neighborhood, and a cute little girl with big blue eyes and gorgeous curly hair would skip over and wander into the yard to show us her newest Barbie doll. I remember that same girl in her communion dress, at her 8th grade and high school graduation parties; always smiling , sweet, and so animated. In typical Lauren fashion, a few weeks ago I saw her coming home from an errand and she was showing me her latest nail fashion. She made a point of telling me that she didn’t think I aged. While I know this isn’t true, this was your Lauren, paying me a compliment and not making the conversation about her. The world is a little dimmer today without your bright light. Sweet, beautiful Lauren — fly high.
