My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this difficult time. Holly and I were room mates for about a year in college, and I will always have fond memories of her as a happy, upbeat, caring friend. I can remember her laugh well. Her journal entries on the Caringbridge website are an amazing inspiration to how we should all live our lives. Thank you, Mike, for sharing when Holly was unable to. We will keep your family in our prayers.

The sorrow of the faithful
is not that of permanent loss,
but the tender sense of sadness
that comes in saying good-bye for now
to someone we love.
May today's sorrow give way
to the peace and
comfort of God's love.

It has been 20 years since we met, but feels like yesterday when this vibrant, sweet, fiesty red-headed lady came into my life. When I learned of her passing shortly after her birthday, I was overcome with sadness for the loss of my friend, your wife and your children's mother. But my Faith tells me the Absent from the body means Present with the Lord. I have two grandmothers over there that I know when she tells them she knows me, they will take care of her, show her the ropes, including how to use her new wings. My love and prayers to you and your beautiful children. Please feel free to contact me as I would love to visit you when I am back in Texas. 949-212-0291.
Take care my friend.

My sincere condolences to Holly's family. She was a kind, happy, fun-loving, thoughtful and wonderful person.

I played with Holly on the drum line at SFA and we went through our "Phi Boot" initiation the same year. She will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with Michael and her children.

Dear Manna Family,

Our daughter Ashley played soccer with Maddie. We did not know Holly well, but she made an impression on us with her kindness when we were first met, right before she got sick again. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your friends and family -- especially Michael, Joe and Maddie.

I did not know Holly or her family, but my sister is a member of her church and threw her, I have been following Holly's highs and lows. I just wanted people to know that the 'Holly Updates" by Holly and Michael were always inspiring and truly showed they faith in the Lord.

I am sorry not to have known her and sorry for her family's loss of her. Will keep her family in my prayers.

Prayers going up daily for Holly's family and friends. To her husband and her children as well as her Mom and Dad. I know Holly is with Jesus Christ now in her NEW body and she is no longer suffering at all in any way...which is a blessing - however, not having her here I know will be very difficult and I pray that God will send a peace that passes all understanding to comfort you and let you know he is with you Always.

Mike and family, as I've processed Holly's transition to heaven, I go back in mind to 1994, when she was such a beautiful bride, and then wife to you. Before that I remember the first day you and she came to Christ United Methodist Church, your quick integration into a life of service together to that congregtion, and to the United Methodist Church as a whole. Your lives show what is great about you. I am proud to have known her, and proud to know you.

May the soul of Holly rest in God's peace, and may the light of her Savior Jesus Christ shine upon her forever.

I only met Holly once but loved her from the moment and was glad to call her "brother." She helped me to have a greater love for a music fraternity that I was a new member to by sharing her experiences and love for it. I will always remember her for that.
My sincerest condolences to her family and friends with whom my prayers are with.

A wonderful lady that touched the lives of so many
people in her church.

I met her in our Sunday School class and it was through
her that I lead my first class. A faithful and caring
member of the Pathfinders Sunday school class at Christ
United Methodist Church. A joyful and wonderful presence
in our class for years and everyone will miss her.

My heart goes out to Mike, Joe and Madeleine and let the
members of CUMC stand with you in your grief.
