Helena Ramsay died February 14, 2018 in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida. She was 17.

The Miami Herald quoted a family member on Facebook: "Though she was somewhat reserved, she had a relentless motivation towards her academic studies, and her soft warm demeanor brought the best out in all who knew her."

The Sun-Sentinel quoted her cousin, Jamie Page, on Facebook, who described Helena as "a genuine, beautiful, and smart human being."

Legacy mourns all those who died at Stoneman Douglas.

I don't know who she was but listening to wat her friend(Sam)said about wat she suggested they do with the books made me sad. It made me imagine how smart she must have been.May your soul rest peacefully.

To the family of Helena I'm so sorry for your loss. Your life will not be the same. Challenging as it maybe, working through grief will help you to move on with your life. Don't feel guilty, as if by moving on you would be betraying, Helena or forgetting her. The fact is that you will never forget your Helena. On certain occasions memories may come flooding back, but gradually the distressing symptoms will ease. At 1 Thessalonians 5:7 states Pray without ceasing. This show that God will be the only one that can understand YOU. Pray for help to do things to soothe your pain. I will pray for you as well.

I enjoyed looking at the candid pictures of Helena's life. Her hair, her pretty freckles and sweet grin make me feel like I know the type of gentle teenager that she must have been. I am so very, deeply sorry for your tragic and senseless loss. I am just another parent in who wanted to share my sympathies with you. I will be lifting your family up in prayer that God's peace is wrapped around you as you deal with this unimaginable loss.

We are grieving with the family. Helena did not deserve to die so tragically. Why? Only God knows. She is definitely in heaven with the other angels.

I'm so sorry for your loss, Anne and family. I was shocked to realize that the picture of Helena I saw on tv, is your very own Helena. We met at HR Block, and I first met your daughter when you invited my son and me to her birthday party when she was very young. She was such a beautiful kid. We lost touch and our paths didn't even cross even when our kids went to the same middle school. My heart aches for you and your family. May her soul rest in peace, and may you find God's comfort in your time of grief.

Our heart goes out to you all and will be praying for you.

Look after yourself and each other.

I'm heartbroken to hear of your family's loss. I know that losing someone you love brings pain unlike any other. But whenever I get overwhelmed, I try to remember Philippians 4:6, 7. There it says that if we release our pain in prayer, we'll receive the peace of God that surpasses all understanding. I truly hope you're able to find comfort in doing so, just as I have. And know that your family is in my prayers too.

I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one, so young, not to have gotten to experience what life would have brought them. Their right to grow up, graduate, college, marriage, children, just to be able to live, taken in a selfish act of violence. It's a horrible tragedy. Just please keep in your hearts, where your loved one is now, there is no anger, violence, just love and peace. You will see them again, they will always be with you. Prayers for all of the Families, that have been dealt this selfish injustice.
