I came home on May 1st and that was the first time I really got to know Summer. That first night I fell in love with everything about her. She was so beautiful and nice and had the best smile and laugh. She had a great sense of humor and our personalities joined together so easily. Over the 10 days that I had with her before I got stationed in Hawaii we made so many memories. Some of which were her senior prom, supercross, accidentally falling asleep in her truck in the draft house parking lot, and plenty of fun nights at Shyanne’s house. She could always make me and anyone smile so easily. For me all she would have to do was look at me and I couldn’t help but smile at how beautiful she was and how lucky I was to be apart of her life. My last day home before I had to leave we met at her physical therapy appointment and sat in her truck and just talked about the ten days and what our future might hold with us. We then hugged and cried for a while because I had to leave and neither of us wanted that. I loved her with all my heart and I always will.

It was the first day of high school when we met. I was so nervous but immediately all of that vanished when I got to the bus stop and you came up to me. You always had this cool joyous exterior that anyone would be lucky to be around and you showed me what it’s like to be strong. I never met someone like you. You were a thrill seeker, loved the adrenaline rush and did much more than an average girl. I always admired the tiny but tough thing you got going on. I remember junior year you picked me up the night before my birthday and took me shopping. It was such a blissful moment because when I reflect back on it, all I remember is us laughing. Laughing so hard that it hurt. The car ride back touched me more because although I knew we weren’t as close as we once were, and I’m sure you were way closer to others because everyone loved you, you opened up to me about personal stuff that you hadn’t told no one about. So of course I questioned why me out of everyone and I vividly remember you saying, “because it’s you Samanstrada, I know I can trust you. I can just tell you these things and you won’t tell anyone.” So im just happy and so grateful that even when we drew apart you still came to me to tell me the most deepest things. Literally ANYTHING and EVERYTHING. I like to think that our bond was that strong and im glad I was a person you could go to. You were such a ball of joy which is what makes this seem so unreal. But you had a passion for trucks that was undeniable so I know you were smiling. Which gives me peace of mind knowing your smiling on. And I’d like to personally thank you for gifting me the ridiculous combination of my first and last name and making it a nickname. It leaves me with a little piece of summer. I’m lucky enough to have met you and even luckier to call you a friend. I will never forget you and will always keep you in my thoughts and prayers, I love you summer. Rest easy beautiful and keep on smiling.

Summer,

This has been such a terrible tragedy... Although your time here physically among us is passed, that doesn't mean that you are now, or will be, forgotten. I remember seeing you pass through the halls, walking by my classroom or waiting for your friends, and the smile you wore showed that you had a life you enjoyed and that people loved you. You are forever a part of those people's lives, so please don't feel like you are gone. You live on inside of your family's hearts, your friend's hearts, and a small part of you lives on in every person you've ever encountered. Your family has your whole life living inside of them, and your friends will cherish, for the rest of their lives, the laughs you shared, and even the tears you shed together. So, in knowing that, please rest easy Summer. You will not be forgotten.

- Mr. Tyler Parker

I knew Summer since she was 2 years old! I used to live with her grandfather. I remember many times spending time with Summer and her brother Cody. I became very close to her family. She will always be remembered and never forgotten.
