  • No one can say anything that makes the loss of a loved one bearable. Even though we may not understand, remember and be comforted that we are all part of God’s plan. Holly made your life brighter and she is now at Home. Remember the good times and look forward to when you will be reunited.

  • I would like to send my prayers to Holly’s family. My sophomore year of college was a year of great fun. I lived in a house with Holly, Irene, and Debbie. I have always had special memories of that time, and I am forever grateful for the opportunity to know Holly. Since that time, we have run into each other when she was visiting Clarkston. I always enjoyed seeing Holly and catching up on each other’s lives. May God bless your family with his love. Becky
