Such a sweet soul. Whenever she came over to spend the night she always had a bag or two of Tikis Chips. She was a delight to be around and I always hated to see her leave. She will be missed terribly. Angelina, my daughter showed me a video of her and Carson where they were in a "challenge" to see who would laugh first and of course Sydney busted out laughing with a mouth full of water that was spit all over Carson's face, it was hilarious. I had never seen the video until a couple of days ago. She will forever be in our hearts. We pray that God heals your pain and fills you with memories of the great times you shared and gives you comfort in knowing she is laughing and living in the Kingdom of God.

I remember she would get on the bus with us and she would first sit down in the front of the bus and start plugging her eyebrows there’s not one morning where she didn’t have to do her eyebrows brows I would always say she used to pluck her eyebrows until they were is none left.

When we first moved to the neighborhood in 2012....Sydney knocked on the door to let me know my daughter had an accident on her bike. With the biggest smile on her face she said “Ma’am your daughter is in the neighbors bushes”. I was so tickled. She could make anybody smile... sweetest kid ever. She will be truly missed. We love you Sydney❤️

I first met the family when I was Volunteering as a cheer coach at a local Sherwood gym. Andy and Tammy had signed the girls up for cheer and gymnastics. As fall arrived I told them about the cheer team I was coaching for the Jr Twisters. They signed the girls up and for the next 3 seasons both girls were on my squad, Gold Twisters. Sydney was the youngest at around 3 and she was so full of spunk. She worked just as hard as the older girls did and loved being the youngest on the squad because all the older girls gave her so much attention. She learned all the cheers and dances we did over the years and when we were taking breaks at practice Katrina always had Sydney to the side helping her learn our routines. After the Twisters dissolved I did not really see Sydney in person. But I watched her gore through social media and she became such a beautiful sweet young lady. I was so proud of her and Katrina when they made the high school cheer squad. I felt like I had a small part in them loving cheer so much. Tammy, Andy and Katrina I know words can’t take away the pain you feel. My heart goes out to each of you. Sydney was loved by so many and now she will be your guardian angel. Fly high Sydney. You are loved and will be missed. Prayers for the family ❤️

Sydney was my grand daughter, she was such a beautiful girl, her smile lit up every place she was,,,she had a crazy laugh, and always wanted to be the center of attention, when she was little she had a head full of golden curls, it really looked like gold was spun in her hair, Sydney loved life, she loved Jesus, she left such and impact on this world, she was only 15 but God let her be able to do so much in that short time, she got to travel all over, she got to see things that most of us will never see in our life time. I just thank God that he let us be the ones to have her in our lives. Baby Sydney will never be forgotten her memory will be forever in our hearts

I was Katrina’s Girl Scout leader for several years when they were much younger. Although Sydney wasn’t in our troop, she often attended our events. She was the cutest, sweetest child and always smiling. She also had beautiful long hair that everyone wanted to touch. She was a joy. In the photo, you can see little Sydney wedged in between all the older Girl Scouts. My thoughts and prayers are for Andy, Tammy, Katrina and all those that knew and loved Sydney.

Dedicated in honor of Sydney Gray to Katrina, Andy and Tammy Gray and to all family and friends

As darkness gives way to light
A memory burns bright
As time slips away
Another passing day
An image within sight
Wings taking flight
Up into the sky
Fly, Angel fly
Set yourself free
Bathe us in your love
Show us the way
To love another day
Between tears of pain
Life was not in vain
Laughter and sorrow
Help us love tomorrow



Sincere condolences to friends and family of these wonderful people. Our hearts go out to you all.

The biggest thing to remember about Sydney is her contagious, huge smile and the courageous, loving heart she had for Jesus. Every single time I walked into the room she would be sitting there, always happy, even on the worst days, laughing uncontrollably. She always wanted to get along with everyone and it’s crazy that she did. She was always a light for Jesus and that is why she never failed to talk to or smile at someone. As I have been told many times, grief is like a house with a bunch of rooms in it. One day we could be experiencing one room, the next month we could be in another room across the entire house. She has shown us that letting God be in full control in our lives makes a huge difference no matter what, as it was displayed tremendously in her life.
