LEAKESVILLE, MS (WDAM) -

Lauren “La La” Norris was a 20-year-old woman getting ready to be married. She was killed Friday, March 24, in a car accident in Greene County. Now, family and friends want people to know just the type of person she was.

“I watched her grow from a little baby to a young lady that was getting ready to get married,” said John Norris, her grandfather.

Tiffany Smith, a family friend, said, “She was always quick to share her testimony of faith in Christ and at this point her journey, that is the most important decision she ever made. I feel like if she could say anything to her friends and family, she would want everyone to come to that same faith and love relationship she had with her savior."

John Norris recalled the last time he saw Lauren before the accident Friday.

“We waved at each other as we passed, and I just know she way saying 'hi papa.' Now I have memories and pictures, and that’s all I have," he said. “If you have a child, a grandchild, or a great-grandchild, reach over and hug them, because it may be the last hug you ever get."

That accident is still under investigation.
