I am forever grateful for our friendship. I remember our road trip the second (or third?) time you came to visit Texas. You experiencing a random stop at a Buc-ee's for the first time, visiting your sweet family in Dallas and cousins in Houston, jet-skiing on Lake Conroe, seeing downtown Houston and country dancing in your cowgirl boots with me. Matt told me he's very glad he got to meet you, as we all are. You never forgot my birthday and I could never forget you. We understood each other in a special way and I will miss our random texts. I kept every single one of our letters and faxes I sent to you oh so so so many years ago. I can't see anything "Tinkerbell" without thinking of you, my beautiful friend. I pray you're truly at peace. I love you and miss you and wish we had more time together.
Sincerely, Olivia

Iesha was always thinking of others. She was famous for sending a birthday card (Of which I received several and I was new) to every member in the church. She had a smile and gave out hugs in greeting. She was always on the lookout for new Bible verses to study and claim. She will be greatly missed by all of us at Hope Church, Griffith.

I will always love you. I can't believe you're gone. I have mixed emotions- I know you are with God and I'm glad but I want you here with me so I'm sad. You made a mark my heart that can't be erased. You were so strong. So smart. So thoughtful. So giving. So brave. Tell Daddy I said hey! See you later Chica💜
