Miranda is survived by her mama Onie Trexler and husband Roger; daddy David Bodenheimer and wife Darlene; biological mother Melanie Bodenheimer (Steven Castaneda); brother, Matt Bodenheimer (Nancy Rose); sister, Catheryn Wright; nephew, Landon Bodenheimer and niece, Maggie Bodenheimer.

I'll never forget all our late night conversations and all the fun we had talking and our time spent together I'll always remember you telling me I sounded cute over the phone and that you loved my truck and that you loved how I treated you like the beautiful queen you're and how you were always going to steal my koi fish tattoo drawing from my phone cause you loved it and wanted to get it as a tattoo. But most of all I'll never forget the connection we had it's like we've known each other for years and just know that I will always love you forever and ever cause you were my better half and my sunshine on my darkest days and know that the time I got and had with you were my happiest of days and nights fly high my beautiful angel. My heart goes out to the entire Bodenheimer family for your loss and we will all see her and her bright and beautiful smile again.

Miranda was always smiling when I saw her. Always polite and kind. A beautiful girl physically but also on the inside, which is what made her such a good person. To all her family, please take comfort in knowing that Jesus made us all a promise that there will be a time when everyone that has passed away in death will be resurrected and given life again on Earth, where God, Jehovah originally intended us to live in a Paradise without sickness and death. John 5:28,29. Something wonderful to look forward to. We have the opportunity to see Miranda again very soon as she is simply asleep for a short time.

Bright, hot, white light......She burned so brightly in 27 years that her gentle flame just could not hold on to the intensity. Her intensity and gentle ways will live on in my heart that is broken right now. God has a beautiful new angelic soul to watch over all those she loved. Rest in your water front hammock sweet one. I will never forget you. I look forward to seeing you again in our heavenly home with our Savior. Peace and blessings to all those remaining on earth as we all wait to see that gorgeous smile again! And we will......
