    Oh friend, I will miss your sweet voice and smile. You always had such compassion for others and no matter your circumstance, you were always lending a hand to others. Your sunshine attitude drew people to you and your laugh captivated us. I will miss stories of Jackie O, the Warden, your beloved Myron and the girls. (Sloan and Shayla had your heart before their first breath! ) Your sister and nephew always on your mind and heart. Miss you already and will see you one day on the other side!

    Our childhood friendship will forever leave laughs and a smile in my heart. You were that friend that I will never forget. Even when we spoke over the years and regardless of distance and time we always laughed and said I love you… I love you girl and we’ll laugh again when I see you in heaven…

    I, like many others I know, was blessed to have known you. You were a ray of sunshine. So selfless and quick with a laugh no matter what was going on around you.
    To Myron, Shayla & Sloan my heartfelt condolences. I hope that seeing how much Holly was loved and respected by so many gives you some comfort. Hugs & prayers for you all. ❤️

    I’m so sorry or your loss. I’d like to share some real hope with you. In John 5:28 and Acts 24:15 the bible promises a resurrection o our loved ones back here to earth. When Jesus resurrected Lazarus, he brought him back here to earth. He’s going to do that again on a much larger scale. In Psalms 37:11+29 it tells us man will live forever on the earth in peace. That really shouldn’t surprise us. That was God’s original purpose; for man to live forever in the garden of eden. His purpose hasn’t changed. That’s why he provided his son to die for us, John 3:16, so we could have everlasting life. In Revelation 21:4 it tells us there’ll be no more pain or death. Is there pain and death in heaven? Of course not so that’s talking about here on earth. Please go to JW.org and click on to the publication “What does the Bible really Teach”. It will answer questions like “Where are the dead” and “Why does God allow suffering”. I you have any questions please e-mail me. Thanks

    I remember your smile and your energy! Always taking care of everyone else! My life was made brighter by having known you, worked with you, laughed, played and traveled with you! I remember photographing the girls, going to the mountains with our whole L&D crew (how did we do that?) and you and I going to visit Emily in Kansas! Thank you for the smiles!!!!
