To the Blankenbeckler Family,
You are in my prayers as your Angel was called to a better place. I had to pleasure of teaching Skylar at East Georgia State College. When I heard the news I could not believe it. However, God has a plan for all of us and I am glad He allowed me and all of us the opportunity to get to know Skylar. Her voice, smile, and personality will be missed. Please lean on the Lord for all of your comfort and strength.

To the Blankenbeckler family,
I am so very sorry for your loss. I had the opportunity to meet Skylar when she came in my office to sell advertising for her volleyball team. She was so bubbly and passionate for her sport that I think I would have bought anything she had been selling that day. She was a great girl and so full of life. It is hard to understand why she would be taken from this earth so soon because she had so much to give to this world. God must have needed another angel in heaven. May he bless all of you in this time of sorrow. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
