Buddy and Donna, what a beautiful young woman. I can tell from all the kind words that it was our loss we did not know Casey. She touched so many lives. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. May God help you through this time.
Buddy and Donna, I was one of the faculty from UT that accompanied Casey to France. I adored her. Her voracious appetite for life and her sweet spirit attracted everyone to her. My heart breaks for you. Donde Plowman
Buddy and Donna, you are in our prayers.

Dear Buddy & Donna:
We were out of town last week and our son Zach who works at EY told us of Casey's passing at lunch today. He was not aware of her parents and our connection. We are so shocked & sorry for your loss. Harold & Linda
I can still see Casey playing ball, what a great athelete. She was always so kind to our daughter, Betsy. God bless and comfort you as only He can. With deepest sympathy,
I didn't know Casey, but she's a lovely girl. So sorry for your loss. Many prayers for your family.
There are no word to describe my complete & utter denial & shock to our little CaseDawg being gone. I can still see her mushroom hair cut running down the court in a Fury jersey (#10), smacking a girl's arm, getting a foul called, and then throwing her hands up in disbelief. :) She did everything 100% - and while I know she looked up to Nikki, Kari and me as her big sisters... what she didn't know is how much we admired and looked up to her. I'll never forget our little Casey. She was such a huge part of so many people's lives and I know she will continue be a part of our lives. I love you Casey.
Buddy, Donna- I can't tell you how much she loved you both and how grateful she was to have you as her parents.
I love you both,
Dear Buddy and Donna, We are so sad to hear about Casey. You all are in our thoughts and prayers. We are so sorry.
Sincerely, Lisa, Scott and Neal McIntyre
Not only was Casey Nicole one of my very best friends... she was my little sister. I watched her grow up, I watched her make mistakes, I watched her score goals and hit home runs, I watched her live a life in the NOW. I miss her... but I know the Lord has taken Casey for a much bigger purpose. Look what she did yesterday! Did you see how many Christians came together to worship and honor her?!? It was amazing! And that's exactly what she was. I love you, miss you, and will cherish you FOREVER my CaseDawg! What a great example you have set. Watch over your parents, help them get through this time of suffering; let them know you are OKAY. I love you Donna and Buddy. <3
Donna and Buddy I am so sorry to hear about Casey, I had her in my class when she was at Holly Tree. Just got the news about her today. Your family will be in our prayers. I will always remember the fun we had at Holly Tree.
I met Casey at UTK my first year. Such a sweet girl. Praying for her and her family. What caused her death?
Donna and Buddy,
You may not remember me, but I am Kameron's mother. My heart go out to you in the loss of such a precious person. I can not express my feelings at this time. I do know there is a GOD and he will not leave you comfortless. Praying for strength for the family.

Dear Buddy and Donna, I am so so so sorry. Hannah texted me from San Diego about an hour ago. Our prayers are with you. Paul McLemore
Words cannot express how very sorry I am for your loss. I clearly understand what an inspiration she was to you and what an impact she has made on your life. Her strength and power stood out in such a way that it was truly unforgettable to me and this is the awe inspiring impression Casey has left on me.
I knew Casey through Franklin High School Basketball and her friendship with my daughter Kandra. I remember Casey as bubbly, she had an infectious personality. Once you met Casey, you couldn't forget her. She touched many lives and will remain in the hearts of her friends forever. Though her life was short, she's reached the pinnacle, Casey is in the presence of Jesus. We will continue to intercede on behalf of your family in prayer.
My name is Leah Richmond-Jones, I was blessed to know casey through out middle and high school. Casey was an amazing person always so kind and funny, she will always and forever be very missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to all her family and friends. RIP casey we love you.
Donna and Buddy,
I am truly saddened and sorry for your loss. Casey is blessing Heaven with her presence and now has special wings. She is and always will be special in all our hearts.
I am so sorry for your loss. I'm just lost for words. For you and your family, I pray.
Donna & Buddy and all: Our hearts, prayers, thoughts are with you. I cannot fathom the loss, but trust that God will carry on the purpose of Casey's short life. Our deepest sympathy,
This is such a tragic loss for Casey's family and friends. Casey was such a bright, talented and beautiful young woman. She touched so many hearts in her short life time including mine. Through the years I so enjoyed hearing about the mother and daughter shopping trips and adventures. My thoughts and prayers to Donna, Buddy, Trey and family.
Casey was a fun loving person who I'm grateful I met while at Franklin High. She was always smiling, laughing, and welcoming as a friend. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Buddy and Donna,
I can't begin to imagine what a difficult time this is for your family. Casey was such a wonderful friend to grow up with, and I'm so sorry this has happened so such a great family and such a great girl. I wish you all the strength and comfort in the world.
Casey was such a wonderful, talented young lady. She also had such a great personality, and always spoke to us when she came back by the high school. Heaven has gained another Angel, but she will be missed here on earth. We will continue to pray for your family.
I will miss this beautiful woman!! She always had the greatest laugh & smile!! I will always remeber her laughing at third base and making us all laugh with her. SHe was the greatest ever, we were just laughing about all of our memories with her. My heart goes out to all of her family!! WE love you!
Our entire family extends deepest sympathy on the loss of precious Casey. We truly enjoyed having Casey in our home and the memories that we have of her will always be a treasure to us. Our thoughts and prayers will remain with your family in the days ahead.
May GOD give you the strength and comfort that only HE can give.
John and Karen Gore (Kari's parents)
We are praying for you and your family. May God surround you with love and comfort. It is an honor to have been a part of Casey's life. She will always be remembered in our hearts.

Margaret and Steve Tocknell
Our greatest sympathy to you on the loss of Casey. We share in your sadness and will be thinking of you and praying for strength for you in the days ahead.
i'm a old friend of gabrina's...i'm praying for your family.
Buddy, so sorry to hear about this---Lisa & my thoughts & prayers are with you & your family during this very difficult time.
Although I didn't know Casey, I know her Mother, Donna (we were co-workers at Captain D's) and her Father, Buddy. I know that Donna and Casey were extremely close (almost like sisters rather than Mother and Daughter) and that she will miss those special times together, but Casey will wait for her Mother and once again have great fun.
May Casey rest in peace and be a guardian angel over her Mother and family.
No bond is as great as that between a parent and child. Our deepest condolences are with you as you grieve.
Buddy and Donna,
Merrill and I and our whole family are deeply saddened by your sudden loss of your wonderful daughter, Casey. Our constant prayers and thoughts will be with you today and for years to come. Please know we will do anything to care for you in these times of deep grief.
Hank and Merrill Stoppelbein
