I'm saddened by the loss of a school mate. My condolences to your family. When I first moved to Dumas, Holly was the first 5th grader to welcome me. Together we welcomed another great friend of ours, Amanda Kinman. She had such a lively spirit and 'recess' was never boring if she was around. Although we weren't best friends, we were friends nonetheless. Holly, may you rest in peace, and watch over your sweet girls and family. You are all in my prayers.
So sorry for your loss. Holly always had a smile on her face & brought one to those around her. She will be missed. Enjoyed watching the Saints play with her.

Carol, Andrea, and Jason. I was heart-broken to hear of Holly's passing, but know she brought excitement to heaven. I have such wonderful memories of spending time with Holly at kids camp when she was young. She brought such joy in those trips. The funniest thing I remember was when we were at kids camp one year, and she was chosen as our dorm princess-- she thought her dorm duties were over ...I told her jokingly...ok,Cinderella, I need you to make your bed and help pick up. I still laugh at the memory. -May Jesus hold you close and comfort your hearts in a way that only He can.
