To the Peterson Family,

We did not know Alyssa personally. Our grandson went to school with her. May you be granted the strength you need in the coming days.

I am very saddened by your loss and cannot imagine the pain you are feeling. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Alyssa is still touching lives today. We too live in the youth soccer world and as a parent of teenagers and elementary age children, I have come to know Alyssa a little through reading other peoples memories of her here. She obviously comes across as a sweet young lady that was loved by many and she had a kind heart.

I'd like others who read these memories to take this as a call to get closer and help protect each other. Many of the students and athletes that have talked here, knew her on a different plane than some of the adults here. We struggle with bullying at my kids schools almost on a daily basis. It has to stop. Be kind and compassionate to one another, like Alyssa. I talk with my kids about being kind to others and caring for others to no end. I as a coach of youth sports, need to be hypersensitive of this as well and coach with compassion.

I am a bit concerned for her fellow classmates and teammates dealing with the struggle of losing Alyssa too. I pray these kids have the opportunity to share their feelings with loved ones and have complete open lines of communication about this and other situations that arise in their lives. No problem is so insurmountable, but may feel like it trying to go it alone. Lean on loved ones. Let them "in" to help out. That's what families do for each other. I pray those mentioning they would switch places with her and cannot be without her are not going through similar struggles. Hopefully I am misreading between the lines.

May God bless each and every one of you. He put us here on earth to live out His will. Even though her time here was shorter than we would have wished for. He needs her now and in ways we may not understand. Trust in Him. We know she is in good hands and watching over us. His will brought me here and moved me to share.

Prayers and love.

My dear sweet Alyssa, I am going to miss your friendly, quirky, exuberant emails. You were such a nice friend to others and truly embodied the Maverick Spirit which showed in all you did. You made every day count and mattered to so many of us every day. Miss you sweet angel.

Hey, Alyssa. I remember that one time you said you wanted to be an astronaut... heh. You had such big dreams! And you were so smart and beautiful, you could've achieved them! Well, think about it! You are kind of an astronaut, now. You're high above Earth! You just went a bit to high, because you went all the way to Heaven. Tell me what Mars is like, okay? Please send me a sign that you're okay... Please smile one last time... Please come back to me. I love you so, so, so much, Alyssa. Why did God have to take YOU?

To the Peterson Family,
<3 Please don't feel guilty. Although we will never know why Alyssa did this, just know that she had a really great life, with hundreds of people who cared for her, even those who hardly knew her.

I miss her so much... This is coming from one of her friends on an Alt.account. She was the most lovable person in all of our friend group. God went to the flower garden and picked the most beautiful flower of all. I hope that one day another beautiful flower will grow and remind me of her... And I will never let God take that one away. Ever. I can't imaging your pain, Peterson Family. Alyssa was a rose out of many wilted flowers at school. She was so nice compared to many. Why did God take the prettiest flower? WHY?! I loved her so much... God, I miss her so much... I can't believe she'll never know how much I actually cared for her. Will I be able to talk to her through God?

Dear Peterson's,
Never think it's your fault. You couldn't have done much more about this. You can pray to her with me! She'll hear you, and she'll smile. When you see a beautiful, lively flower, smile. Because that flower IS her. Just when you see anything beautiful, that must be her. I want to see her so bad... But don't worry, please! I can hear Alyssa right now. She says she wants you to smile for her. So since you can't do anything much, the most you can do is to smile for her. When you talk to her, she won't answer with her voice, but through other things. So just smile, although it may be hard.

I feel like I can't go without her... I wish I'd gone trick - or - treating with her... I wish I'd gotten a phone so I could talk to her... I can't go on like this. I need to see her. But I'll see her when it is time for me. God will take me when He needs me... God just needed Alyssa too soon. That is why the good people all go too soon...

I am so sorry for your loss. My children who attending Oberon with Alyssa said that she was a sweet, smart, friendly and happy girl. I cannot image your pain but we are praying for peace and healing for you all at this very difficult time.

Alyssa was something else. Even though her and I barely knew each other, she was still a kind person, none the less. I experienced first hand her kindness after I returned to Oberon. She was the only one who seemed to care and notice that I went missing. She was the first one to greet me back. She was funny, she was kind, she was intelligent, and its a loss to the human race that she left us. Alyssa may be gone, but she will always live in our hearts.

To the Peterson family,
I can only imagine what pain you are going through. You raised Alyssa to be one of the best people I've ever met. I can reassure you that there is nothing better you could've done with her. We'll all feel like we did something wrong- that there is something we could've changed to prevent this. Nonetheless, Alyssa was an example to us all.
