I miss you, Bianca. I don't think there is ever a day where I don't think about your smile, your beautiful voice when you sing songs from musicals, or how I can feel your aura like rays of sunshine. You are the light to my own darkness and you will forever be the light. No matter far and no matter what could turn about over the years, I will never forget how you as a person changed my life and I am forever grateful that I got to meet you when I did because you gave my life meaning. Keep on singing in the angels chore love, jump in the field of pink flowers, continue being the guardian angel that I know you are, and I wish you peace and nothing but peace.

Rest in peace Bianca. I'm thinking of you again today. I wonder if there are swingsets in heaven. I think of you often and hope you are at peace. I never got the chance to know you but I know you had a pure heart who loved her mother and sister so much. They are fighting for you and for your justice. I will never forget the impact your story has made on my core. You are loved endlessly Bia.

Sweet Bianca~

I believe Heaven is filled with pink flowers, and sweet animals to run and laugh with you through those fields of flowers. You were our precious flower who filled the world with beauty.

May you rest in the gentle, loving hands of the sweet Lord.

God bless you, sweet angel.

I am so sorry. May God's love be with Bianca and everyone who loves her. Let Heaven sing, an angel has come home. Let us weep and remember this beloved child of God. Gone too soon. The world has lost a brilliant light forever. If I could, I would light a million candles just for her to see from Heaven above. Just for her, just for her.......

We only talked a few times but when we did she was incredibly sincere, kind, and understanding. I wish she could have stayed longer so that our paths could have crossed again. It's weird to miss someone you fell out of touch with but I find myself in that position. Love and light, Bianca, rest easy knowing you were a good person and many love you.

May God Bless you all and surround you with peace and love always.
In Jesus name.. Amen

Bianca was not only a good daughter and sister but she was a good friend. She was always there for People when they where in need. She was such a happy person and she never had anything negative to say about anyone. Even when they where really rude to her. Biancas death is really a tragedy. I can go on and on about how sad I am to not have Bianca In this earth with me anymore. Her family is in my prayers. I love you Bianca. REST IN PEACE ❤

Bianca was a unique girl, she was beautiful, rare, talented. Her life was taken at such a young age, even if she's not with us anymore she will always be a part of us, I know she's watching over all of us and would want us to smile, she's our guardian angel now and will care for us from up above. We all love you Bianca. Fly high Bia, and rest easily <3
