I don't even know what to say other then I miss you more then you will ever know. Every day I struggle to want to keep going because I don't want to keep going without you. My heart is in a million pieces and nothing will ever take away this pain or this emptiness I have inside of me. I just want one more day with you. One more time of jumping in the car and driving to Driggs at 1 in the morning with the kids asleep and the music loud. Singing until we had no choice but to stop. Or playing games and daring people to run around the block naked in the middle of winter. I miss you so much sissy. Even though our time together was too short I will always cherish every memory we have had together. You are my best friend and my life will never be whole again. Please watch over me. Keep me safe and remind me every day why I have to keep going. Rest in peace my beautiful sister. You are gone too soon but will never been forgotten.
I love you sissy. Always and forever. <3

Britt lets just start this off by saying I love you and miss you like crazy! You were the big sister any brother would want. I will never forget all the times we had together. I will miss all of our amazing camping trips! I am forever grateful for the times of just hanging out at your house slip and sliding in the rain or doing absolutely nothing. I will miss the midnight calls asking where the hell I was at and why your yard had a million forks stuck in it. Damn it Britt I don’t understand why you had to leave me and everyone so early we had so many memories to make. I love you with everything I have and I promise you till my time is up I will do all I can for the boys and lynndee jo. Until I see you again I love you beautiful sister fly high and please keep me safe.

Dearest Cousin Brittany,

I will always love you and cherish our memories. My greatest and funniest memory with you was, when you got ready for a date at our house on Buckboard Ln., you were so excited. My dad, your Uncle Tim hyped you up for your date and off you went. Right after you left he told Heather and I that, your date was also your cousin! When you got back my dad told you and you screamed, "Uncle Tim, I kissed him, why didn't you tell me?" We had the hardest laugh and we brought it up for several months. You were the cousin I first looked up to when I was little. You are beautiful, funny, and kind. Brittany, the whole world, including me will miss you dearly. Fly high my dearest cousin.

I love you,

Whitnee Faye Wray Hall

Love you miss you Justin W.

I love you and will miss you so much I cannot even explain it!! One of my best memories with you was when my Dad, Tim was teaching how to drive stick shift in his Jeep. We stalled about 20 times in the 40 feet we traveled, we were laughing so hard we could all barely breathe. You always made me smile and laugh, I'll never forget the times I had with you. Love you so much XOXO.

My beautiful daughter I miss you so much. I can’t believe I had to say goodbye to you. This is so unreal. I keep waiting for you to walk through the door. I miss your beautiful smile and your big hugs you used to give me. The “Madre” text messages that you would send. All the things we didn’t get to do and all the things we should have done. My life will never be the same. I hope you are having an amazing time in heaven. Don’t worry about your children I will make sure they are taken care of and have everything they need. Your memory will live on for as long as I do. You will never be forgotten. Until we meet again baby girl I love you always and forever. Please give me the strength to get through this my angel. I really need it. Mom
