Dear Lauren Hill,

You are the true definition of strength, courage, power, leadership, etc etc! Your time spent on earth will never be forgotten.

I [hate] that I never got the chance to meet u in person but know you inspired me the whole time! For every life u touched, u made the biggest impact of them by just being YOU!!

You’re in a far better place now and please don’t have too much fun up there w/o all your family and friends.

Can u please tell my Grandma I said hello. Don’t be afraid, she knows you cause we spoke about u plenty of times Until we officially meet again, take care and continue to be that LEADER we all love! ‪



LeBron James

Rest in peace, Lauren Hill.
