A grieving Queensland husband shared a beautiful tribute to his wife following her sudden death on Tuesday.
Lauren, who was known as Loz, was preparing her son Jimmy to start preschool when she suddenly died.
In a statement, Drew said that his wife was taken from him while they were getting ready for the day.
Jimmy was so excited to start preschool, and so were you. Drew described his wife as the “heart” of their family.
He also said that she would always fight for the best for their four children. He thanked her for helping keep the family together during difficult times.
He said that her passion was evident in everything that she did. He also praised her for putting the community first.
Recently, she had graduated from university with a bachelor of midwifery and nursing science degrees.
He also thanked her for working hard to make their lives together.
He promised that he would continue to nurture their four children, who he said would one day become the people that they always wanted them to be.
Over $20,000 was raised in just 24 hours for the family following her sudden death.
According to her friend, Jacq Lawson, many people who knew Lauren knew her as a caring individual. Lauren and Drew had a lifetime of love and were able to build a wonderful family.
The couple had faced the world’s threats together, and the generosity of the people showed their love and support.
Ms Lawson said that Drew was overwhelmed by the support that the people had shown him and his family.
She said that the money would help ease the financial stress of the family.
