Even though we barely knew each other, I still miss you a lot. From Bluelake to video calls with you and Hudson, I had so much fun making memories with you. I regret not talking to you more often. You were so amazing. May God be with you. Until we see each other again, Rest In Peace.

Sweetheart, my heart aches. I love you with all of my heart. You were planned from day one. Everything I did was for you, from conception through invitro, to convincing Dad to stay home with you starting at age 2 1/2 (not such an easy job), completing my Master's Degree, moving to Rochester Hills; the list goes on. Words cannot express how much of a void I have right now. I will forever hold you in my heart.

Your smile, face, and personality were just perfect. I will cherish all of our journeys and travels, your successes and your stumbles and rebounds; everything about you made you the young lady that you were becoming.

I have selected several photos of memories, however of the thousands of photos, I will hold most dearly the imprint of your life and the times shared. I know that you are all around me.

Say hello to Aunt Marie, Papa Fred, Uncle Jaime, your Great Grandmas and Grandpas. Until we meet again, I will forever miss you. See you some day on the other side. May God hold you in your arms. I love you baby girl...

I am so, so sorry for your terrible loss. Lynsey wasn't one of my extremely close friends, but I knew her because she was in choir with me in eighth grade at VH. She was always really kind to me, saying the sweetest compliments and including me in the conversation. I remember one time I was feeling sad and no one was paying attention to me, but Lynsey, who was in my science class, asked me what was wrong and told me "Whatever it is, you don't deserve it." It totally made my day. Nobody deserves to die, but especially not someone as genuine and amazing as Lynsey. I know people have been saying things about her regarding how she died, but I just want to let you know that I am not one of them, and I wanted to share this memory with you, because the most important thing is that we remember and honor who she was and continues to be in our hearts.

I am so sorry for the loss of your daughter, She was my locker neighbor at Van Hoosen and she had such a great smile and she was so sweet. I am going to miss her very much along with my classmates. I am sending prayers your way and I hope you and your family can find some peace❤️

Dear Lynsey, there is not a time I can remember when you were not laughing or making a joke about something. You were an amazing person to be around and always lightened up the mood. One of my favorite memories was the Florida trip over spring break. We had such a blast and the trip would not have been the same without you.
I will miss you dearly Lynsey,

Love Calvin.

Dear Lynsey,

I don't think you ever understood how much I truly loved you. You were someone who could easily make me laugh until I ran out of breath, someone who cared endlessly about the people around you no matter how bad it got. You were there for me when I felt like no one else was.

I have never met another person who wore their personality so vibrantly. We could always count on you to speak your mind- even if it wasn't exactly the right place or time. It's a trait I have always admired, even when I thought the teachers would come after our heads. Once you decided that you wanted to do something, there was no stopping you. Whether it was building a fort in the woods for hours or shaving the bottom half of your hair.

You never failed to be there for me. You never failed to cheer me up. Even when we drifted further apart, I never stopped caring about you and I wish I had the chance to fall asleep mid-call with you just one last time. I love you more than you could ever understand.

Our lock is still there, it will be forever.
