Caroline was vibrant, beautifully bizzare, and so incredibly thoughtful.

One of my fondest memories of Caroline was from school; at NEA. We shared an art class together and I can’t remember the assignment or even who else was in that class. I remember being particularly upset this day. I recall how quiet and withdrawn I was being.

When it was announced the class was about to end, I remember (smiling as I type this) her reaction being, “ah!”. With seconds to spare, Caroline hurriedly finished her craft and darted over to me. She had made a little star box covered in collage tissue papers of purples, blues, and teals. She handed it to me and said with that beaming smile, “You seem unhappy. I don’t like unhappy”. She went on to comment on the importance of hyperactivity and then said, “it’s a star because I know you like them because of the poem you wrote.”

In that moment, everyone vanished but her and I. I remember still being seated and her standing in front of me with her shining smile and smiling eyes. It was one of the first times I felt truly noticed and heard by a peer; a friend.

I still have that box and on the bottom it simply reads, “To Luccia” and signed with a heart, her name, “Caroline.”

My dear Caroline,
May you always be in the stars.

Caroline loved doing crafts, and colorful ones at that. She made these during a fundraiser for my cousin's soon to be wife. She would complain I never decorated anything with colors. I couldn't help but start doing so when she said she made it for me. I'll get to look at this and remember you well night Caroline. You were such a great weirdo. I'll miss making a fool out of myself with you.

This girl was remarkable. I was new at school and I felt like I had lost all my old friends. I couldn't have been in the building more than five minutes before she found me and put a smile on my face asking to be my friend. She had an uncanny gift for being able to befriend an uplift people wherever she went. I hope everyone will continue to pass on the unconditional love and support she showed to all of us, her humanity and empathy was second to none. I miss you so much Caroline. You were so loved. She grew into an amazing person and it's no mystery to me why :) I'll always be here to support the Hamilton family.

With love, Ryan Donahue

My sweet girl,
Every time we talked on Facebook messenger, you asked about the key you had given me. When you gave it to me, you said, "this is the key to my heart, don't lose it". You knew it hung on my rear view mirror, and it still hangs there today. I also still wear the ring you made me!

We've known each other for 12 years. I've loved you every day for 12 years. They say that if a friendship lasts for over 7 years, it's for life. Well, our friendship absolutely is.

I love you, I love you, I love you.
