This past year has been the most difficult time of my life. I’ve learned so much. Not that I wasn’t capable, but because that was how you always took care of me. You are still taking care of me even now. I really hate doing this life without you, but I do hope I’ve made you proud. Until we are together again, I will treasure the time that we had and the memories that we made. Forever yours, Rhonda
So very loving, funny and kind.
We are missing you so much.
Andy, you are truly missed! you were creative, loving, and the funniest person i know. i will always remember your laugh and your jokes. love you andy!
To my daddy. We never met. But I use to hear your voice when you talked to me, when I was in mommy’s belly. You use to hold your phone to mommy’s belly so I could listen to your favorite bands including the string cheese incident. I will grow up knowing you through pictures and stories told by family. Even tho we will never met, I love you very much.
He ended every phone call with, “anyway, love you sis”.
I find myself missing hearing his voice say that more & more.
Our little ‘Grumpy Bear’. He will forever be loved & is so deeply missed.
My 2nd born son who I love so very much. Always so loving and kind and giving to others. One of my very best friends. I think about you every day my son and I’m so happy we were able to spend so much of our time together. and that God blessed us with you for a short time.
To the love of my life. You left a profound impact on my life. I am a better different person because of you. I miss you every second of the day every day. You made me a mother to our beautiful daughter Madalyn. I am so grateful for the time we spent together. I miss so many things about you. Especially your sense of hummer. You were brilliant, witty and fast thinking. Some of the funny things you would say, only you could think of. You are so missed. I will love you forever.
I miss so many warm memories of Andy. The most, I miss sharing our love of music. We enjoyed a few shows when he lived in Omaha where he would be so alive and free hearing the music played by those bands. After he moved away, he’d text me songs he knew I’d enjoy, connecting us from far away. So much music reminds me of him, hopefully still connecting us. We are forever grateful for Andy loving Austin and Ethan since they were little. We all miss you dearly.
I miss my little brother every day, so many beautiful memories of my Brother. We had endless hours as a family boating and camping, or some sort of family adventure our parents were taking us on. Andy and I also spent hours together at the local taco bell and skateboarding. Another of my fun memories is when we would play Nintendo together and pretend that juicy fruit would give us energy to continue playing, summers at grandmas, and just talking to him. Miss you so much Andy! God Speed.
Fafa and I knew each other for years but didn’t get close until after she moved to BC, she pushed me to believe in myself and to put myself first. She was a bright spot in my day, reading her messages and seeing the pictures she sent made me feel like I mattered. Fafa was courageous, beautiful, and far kinder than this world deserved. I will always miss her and she will forever have a space in my heart 💜
I was deeply moved by the memorial speeches that I heard today. You all spoke so beautifully of Fafa’s lasting legacy and the impact that she had on everyone she came in contact with. I always aspire to speak so with such tact and compassion that Fafa effortlessly possessed when discussing anything she was passionate about it. She had a deep sense of caring and empathy and extended that to all she interacted with. I only wish that the world had been kinder to her.
