Holly and I were in AJO together. I was a dorky, nerdy, and terrified 6th grader that no one really seemed to like, unless they were making fun of her. Holly was different. She didn't make fun of me; instead, she, an 8th grader, befriended the "weird girl." Holly was my one friend that year, but she was all I needed. She taught me my first swear word, how to stand up for myself, and that not all people are awful- most, but not all. She taught me so much, and I am incredibly grateful that she was in my life. Without her, I don't think I would have made it through middle school.
It continually breaks my heart to know what happened. I can't look at a violin without thinking of her. So many things I wish I could have said. Thank you for everything you did for me; it might not have seemed like much, but it mean the world to me.
I love and miss you so much.
I was just looking up old friends from Fairbanks days from 1995 to 1997 and Holly was one of my precious children in my daycare. I have a picture of her,Adam and you sitting on your steps in your house when Bob and I went out. Please call me or send me an email so that we can talk. I sent a friend request on facebook..Sue,Bob and Adam Meyer formerly Fairbanks and now Ripon Wisconsin..
I just recently found out what happened and it broke my heart. I knew you for years. I used to spend almost every weekend with you. Youre the most amazing, talented person I will ever have the pleasure of meeting. I will never meet anyone who loves animals as much as you or who could play the violin as well as you. You are amazing and I hope you have found peace.
It broke my heart to hear what became of you. We fell out of contact for years before I found you again, and then silence... before I found the news. I didn't want to believe it. I lost an amazing friend who I could BS with, confide in, share our love of animals, and laugh our bums off at that Arabian Sand Boa and other silly things.
I hope wherever you are, you're at peace. <3
