Some people are quick on their feet.

Like Lauren Harrell, who was at the right place and time for a local family.

What an amazing story. So proud to be able to brag about my cousin being a true guardian angel!! Your gift for caring observation has been a gift to our family and I am pleased that now so many more can know what an amazing person you are.
