Lauren Elizabeth Orton 1971-2003

Incredibly talented composer Mark Orton lost his wife suddenly in 2003 and this website is his tribute to her life, her creations, and all the lives she touched while here on this planet.  It makes me appreciate how an on-going project like this can not only help one honor the life that was lost, but also deepen our own understanding and healing, and ultimately create a community of support as others submit their own stories and offerings.   After spending a good hour on this site, it was clear that Lauren lived a full and inspired life, and it is no surprise that now Mark is carrying part of her torch and continuing the inspiration.  Thanks Mark.
