We are so sorry to hear about your loss. I can’t image how you must feel. Nothing is worse then losing a loved one; especially a child. So young so innocent. So early. I remember taking my son Ethan Rogers to her house. And dropping him off for the day or night. She was such a beautiful girl. And always had a beautiful smile. My son Ethan went to school with her at Bill Reed. They met in 6th grade. And they remained friends. Even after they both went to two different high Schools. She will be greatly missed. If your family needs anything, we are here for your family. We will be praying for your family and her friends during this difficult time. We hope you can find some comfort and peace. She would of been amazing in whatever she set out to do. This world will be lost without her. She would of done great things. GOD Bless, Love Ethan, Michelle, Randy, Jadon and Joey Rogers
