She is a beautiful person, inside and out. I know we will see her again in Perfection.

Hanna had such a beautiful soul and always brought a smile to everyone. I remember carpooling with her in middle school and always wanting to be as cool as she was. I will never forget our time together and our fun memories. I love you Hanna.

Hanna and I were the dearest friends. I will miss her very much.

I could always rely on her I came to trust her judgment and wisdom as well and her advice was always so well thought out and helpful.

She was a great girl from the day we met I knew she'd be in my life forever. She loved her friends and family and I know our lives will never be the same without her. I could never find a better and more caring friend.

She has left us with so many wonderful memories. I will cherish them forever.

Hanna Grace, your departure from this earth occurred way too soon, and the hole in our hearts is immense. But that void is filled with the joy knowing you are dancing in eternal paradise with Our Heavenly Father, whose plan we may not fully comprehend, but know it is perfect. We will miss your face, your laugh and your wit, and cherish the memories of your time with us. We are encouraged in the knowledge of one day reuniting with you in Heaven, where all will be perfect in happiness, peace and love. Enjoy the view angel!

Anita and Pete,
I was so impressed meeting Hanna for one of our yearly Ya Ya get togethers. She was very gracious and welcoming. Even more impressive was her willingness to hang out with an old gaggle of women and attend a country concert. Being someone that doesn't always feel like I fit in, she made me feel "cool". I am blessed just to have known her, however briefly.
With love,
Lori Fortner
