With a heavy heart, I wanted to share some sad news with everyone. I just heard from Lara's husband, Byon, this morning. Lara (arizona mom) passed away on July 23 in her sleep at their home. Lara was a strong kind woman who loved her family dearly and who did everything possible to stay with them. My heart hurts for her family....they lost an amazing wife, Mom, friend, angel.
