    I can’t even express the things I have felt since I heard the news. I’m so sorry! I will always remember my time spent with her in St. Louis when she was a pre-teen as I escorted some of our brightest children at their national problem solving competition. How proud you must have been of her. Please feel free to reach out to your friends and former classmates as you deal with your grief. May she rest in peace!

I put her to work in the office and she always did a great job. Galen and Lawanna, we am so sorry that you have lost yet another child. We hope you find strength in your faith, your memories and the blessing of Emily and Elliot in your lives.
