Angie, Eddie and Justin,
My heart is breaking...I have known Victoria since she was a little girl. I watched her grow into a beautiful young woman that was always so sweet and had a smile on her face. She and Austin always had such a good time together. You are all in my prayers and I hope that God wraps his arms around you for comfort during this time.

I am sorry to hear of the loss of your daughter. One of the most difficult things we have to deal with is the death of a loved one. John 5;28,29 assures us; "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming when all that are in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." The Bible gives us hope that one day our dead loved ones will be brought back to life. I hope this message will offer some comfort in your time of sadness.

I am sorry for your loss. Victoria was a very sweet girl and always had a smile on her face every time that I saw her. My daughter, Jessi and Victoria used to be real close but as I am sure you know when they graduate things change because of the different paths that they take. She will be missed but she is in a much better place. I will keep your family in my prayers.
