I only knew her several months, but she was the first friend I made moving down here. She was constantly building a network of friends, the epitome of outgoing and amiable. She shared her family and her friends with me, and we both shared an incredible bond - an imprint of her that will never leave me. We've had a tragic loss. But together, we'll overcome it.

To Willow, I'm sorry we didn't always get along, I'm sorry we were never as close as we could have been. I hope the light of God is basking over you eternally. Rest peacefully. Leanna

You have never been far from my thoughts, even though our families went different ways. You were taken too young and you will be missed. My thoughts and prayers to Bob and Nancy and the rest of the family. All my love and God Bless.

Kayla lived life everyday with excitement & danced to her own beat. I admired that in her. She will be missed by many. My thoughts are with you Bob and your family. As I can't imagine what you are going through. Kayla was a good kid. I was once told " when we get to Heaven, God will answer every question we have with an exclamation mark. " Know and trust that.

A quote from Iris Bolton, who lost her child, as follows. "I can grow with this event and survive or I can down down with it and destroy my life. ...I have chosen to get beyond the pain by going through it and somehow making meaning out of its meaninglessness. May the radiance and beauty of Willow's life never be defined by her death.

My mother always recited a poem that started: "Where did you come from, Baby Dear?" "Out of the Nowhere into the Here"... You were here for such a short time yet you were loved dearly and will be missed by your family and friends

Dearest Willow, I still remember when and where we first met, all the good times we have shared, all the concerts we rocked out at and the famous musicians we met, and all the inside jokes we made. I remember being in the halls of Port Charlotte High, laughing and singing while we slowly walked to class. You were such a compassionate, intellectual, emotional, funny, and charismatic friend and I love you so much for it. I'm sorry you went so soon. Take care, Gorgeous, love you. Someday we will meet again. My condolences go out to the Coogan family. My prayers are with all of you. Be strong.

Kayla was such a sweet girl with an amazing outgoing personality. When she was around, we would always be smiling, because of the way she lit up a room. There are many people that will miss Kayla, and I am one of them. I'm so sorry for your loss. There are no words to describe someone passing away at such a young age. My prayers go out to you Kayla, and my prayers go out to the friends and family you left behind.

No ones posted anything for over a year. But I really really miss you. I think about you all the time I have your letter and your picture hanging on my wall in my room. I wonder what you'd think of me. Or how you would react of all the things I wanna tell you. I can guess your reaction. I don't know if you'd be upset with me or happy and excited. So I'm just gonna settle for both. I miss you big sis. I know you believed in the other side so I know you're watching over me. I love you. ❤❤

There are so many memories that we have shared together in good times and bad. You open the door to your heart to me and introduced me to so many new friends most importantly, Chelsea Myers. You two always made me smile. Today my heart cries to know you have passed on. If only I could of told you I loved for the very last time and hold you in my arms. God bless baby girl and just know you are a big part of my life. I love you!! Jason Stone If Tears Could... If tears could build a stairway And memories were a lane, I would walk right up to heaven To bring you home again. No farewell words were spoken. No time to say good-bye. You were gone before we knew it, And only God knows why. My heart still aches in sadness And secret tears still flow. What it meant to lose you, No one will ever know.

I am so sorry for the loss of this young woman. I met her briefly at a concert I went to with her Mom. I could see the love they had for each other. God bless her and her family & carry them.

Bob, I am so sorry I didn't see this until now.I feel terrible for you and your family.OMG so very young,so pretty,and so suddenly.I know you are still in shock.I was for awhile when my husband died.It is so hard to try to adjust to that person you love so much being gone.Even when you know through illness they will pass you still can't make yourself believe it has really happened.Maybe it is our minds trying to protect us.Live on those lovely memories that you have of her and the love you shared for being in each others life.Cherish her memory and know she is watching over you.God Bless you and if you believe you will see her again in the future. My deepest sympathies.

So sorry for your loss. Losing a child is inhuman as any parent will tell you. May God's love and The Holy Spirit give you the strength to grieve and move forward in healing and acceptance.
