All Souls' Day, honoring Lauren Dill '04

On November 2, the Upper School community observed All Souls' Day, joined by alumni, family and friends of our late and beloved friend and teacher, Lauren Dill '04. In addition to reading the names of those whom our community love but see no longer, Jennie Luongo offered a heartfelt homily in remembrance of Lauren. 
Mid-service, our students, faculty and alumni in attendance processed outside to bless a newly planted Cedar Elm in memory of Lauren. The Reverend Whitney Kirby blessed the tree with holy water, and the Choir led the closing hymn, Dona Nobis. 
Thank you to the Dill family and many of Lauren’s classmates, students and friends for joining us for this special day of remembrance. We hope this intentional placement of the tree between the Chapel and the Softball Field will provide comfort for its visitors in between two of Lauren's favorite places on campus.
