  • Your baby will live in your heart and nothing can take that away. I hope you will be able to regain your emotional footing – I imagine this will be a tremendous struggle. Hug your son. Remember those who love and depend on you despite the emptiness which must touch the bottom of your soul. Pray. Cry. Grieve. My mother’s heart breaks for you.

  • I am truly heart broken to have heard that you left this earth too soon. We had spent time together years ago, but every so often you and your family would pop in my head. I’m sorry for not reaching out those times you crossed my mind…

    It has been some time since I had talked with Sydney and her family. I still remember the first day I met her, spent time with her and even traveled with her family to watch her brother play baseball. I am truly sorry Christy, Allen and Cameron. She was one of the sweetest girls I had met and I’m sure that only grew as she grew and became the young woman she was. She will be missed by many.

  • Christy and Allen,
    I have just found out about Sydney’s passing and I can’t even begin to express how sorry I am that I did not get to attend her service. I loved her so very much and cherish every memory I have with her. Of course, as you know, Sydney was the life of every party. She was so silly and goofy and smart, kind, beautiful, and talented. I wish that I had reached out to her more. I wish I could have been there some more. Sydney will live forever in my heart, as I’m sure she will in many others.

  • I don’t even know where to start, I just heard of your passing today and I am so saddened. You and Lacey were one of the first friends I ever had. I always admired you and enjoyed watching your journey in life even after we went to different high schools and went our separate ways. Prayers to your parents and Cameron, you will be missed Syd. 🤍

  • Rest in piece to one of the sweetest people I have ever met. Sydney was the first friend I had made in first grade at school and in gymnastics along with our friend Mackenzie. She was always the glue that held us all together. My condolences and prayers to your family.

  • I am so grateful I was able to know Syd. There was never a time she didn’t make me feel loved. She was able to go into any situation with a smile on her face and full of confidence. I will never forget being welcomed into her family, playing softball, her falling asleep on my shoulder after a long day of snowboarding or practice, listening to her talk about anything and everything, and being called her friend. She was truly an incredible person and such a bright light in the world. She is gone too soon but left a unforgettable impression on everyone she met. I will never forget how amazing she was.
