Whitney and Matt were the best of friends throughout elementary school and into high school. They had fun together being mischievous. She had a twinkle in her eye and a sweet smile that matched her personality. She will be missed and thought of often. Fly free Whitney, watch over tour family and know how much you are lived.

So very sorry for the tragic loss of your daughter
I wish to share comfort from the Bible at this very sad time.
. Jesus well knew the Bible statement:" Time and unforeseen occurrence befall them all" [Ecclesiastes 9:11]. He knew that sometimes bad things just happen. The wonderful future resurrection hope is the promise found at John 5:28,29:"Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice+ and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life ..." Revelation 21:3,4 states that ''death will be no more. and pain will be no more, the former things will have passed away''. Our Creator, Jehovah God, by means of his s
...on Jesus, is going to undo the tragedies that touch our lives today.
Most sincerely

This beautiful, vibrant girl was needed in Heaven sooner than anyone would have known... an unexpected, abrupt end on Earth - she will forever be remembered and will look over all her friends and family from the skies above.

Whitney was by far, the most full of life, bold, brave, spontaneous, young women I ever knew. She taught us all by her example to live every day as if it is our last. She never needed a reason to celebrate. Every day was a party. She loved fiercely and lived without caution. She had no regrets. Her laughter will forever ring in our ears, her million dollar smile will never be forgotten. Thank you for the life lessons, crazy, beautiful girl. Your light will shine forever. Our love is with Timmy, Dawn, Allen, Lyle and all of the people Whitney loved the most.

I am in complete shock. Whitney was one of the sweetest and most beautiful souls. I worked with her in the pharmacy at MDI 2013-2014. I will never forget her smile.
