  1. Speaking as a cheerleader from a squad that has had the misfortune of experiencing a similiar event, my heart hurts for her family, friends and team mates. I hope with time the hurt and pain gets easier, though i honestly understand, it never gets better.

    May flights of angels lead thee to thy rest and may you sit at the right hand od God and dwell in the house of the lord forever and ever sweetheart.
