Notes of Condolences about Sommer

I cant believe it has been over a year without you, it has been really difficult. I remember the first time me and Sommer hungout in grade 1. We instantly became inseparable for over 10 years. We spent so much time together I feel like I practically grew up at your house. We would always joke about how I was the third child. We had so many good memories together and your family was always kind to me. I miss you and Lacee so much. As we got older I hated to see how much you were hurting, I just wanted things to get better for you and for you to be happier in the future. I know you’re finally resting in peace. We may have fought and had our ups and downs but I always cared for you, even if you didn’t think so. I got a tattoo for you so in a way you’ll always be with me. You will always be my bestfriend, it feels like my other half got ripped out of my heart.

We saw you at rest not long ago here at Bayview

We came today and remembered you in a lovely way

We saw the big Bomber Plane again as fly by at the same place same time

Time stood still for us today

I wished for that

I always wish for time to stand still

Because then I’m always with you


I love you Sommer

Hi Sommer,

It dawned on me today that over a year has passed since you left us. Although the time we spent together was limited, you were one of the first people to show me grace when I started working at McDonald’s and it’s something I’ve always appreciated you for. I had a really hard time adjusting when I first got hired, and I’m not sure if you realized it or not, but you had such an integral part in making me feel included and valued. I can’t imagine the demons you had to face and while it was never my place to step in, your courage and your struggle were something I could see from the moment I met you. Sometimes when you meet someone new, you have that instant connection, and feeling of safety. You were one of those people I related to and felt comfortable speaking with right away. I remember how happy I felt the time our breaks fell in line with each other and we spent that half hour chatting. I remember how good it felt to make you smile, because your smile was so radiant and contagious. I only worked with you for a short amount of time before I transferred to another store but you are someone I will never forget from my earlier days there and I want to send you my thanks for that, wherever it is you are now.

I cannot imagine the way your family must be feeling but I want to send my deepest and sincerest condolences to them, should they read this. I remember when I heard you had passed it felt like I’d been hit by a truck. What a truly awful and undeserved thing to happen, from the bottom of my heart I hope you are at peace and you are finally able to catch some rest. All I can do now is regret not talking to you more, but appreciate the times I got the chance to. Sommer, you were and will always be a beautiful soul, may you rest in peace and may you feel the love that everyone continues to carry in their hearts for you. Thank you for everything

Hopefully soon, I’d rather be with you than this shit hole of a world… I’m fucked. I miss you. I just want you back. Fuck everyone.

Dear Sommer


There’s a tear every time that I blink

365 days has past since you were with us

Sissy misses you so

I am eternally deeply forever saddened that I’ve lost you

I see you in my dreams every night

You were right- I am sorry that you are gone


Luv u Sommer

Rest In Peace

You are and always will be my best friend. The first time we met, it was at McDonald’s and you threw chicken nuggets at me, saying I was getting special treatment. You were completely right too, and this is how I first came to love you. Always bold and willing to stand up for what you deserve, knowing your own worth. I both looked up to you and thought of you as my little sister. When we met you were at a deep low in your life, and I remember us bonding over stories and experiences and understanding each other more than anyone before. Together we tried to help each other believe that our problems in life don’t define us. Since that first moment we met, many years ago, we watched each other go through highs and lows. I only wish I could have helped you more, but I know you’re at peace now, and the demons that you were always fighting have no effect on you anymore. I love you forever and always.

Sommer was my childhood best friend but even after we both grew up, we texted every few months to catch up and laugh about our memories from when we were kids. You were always so fun to be around. Thinking of you always Sommer

When you tell someone, you have had a best friend for 19 years, they understand that is your best friend. When you have been married 19 years, that is a reason to celebrate. Had a job for 19 years, 'wow" that's forever.

But to have only 19 years, 2 months and 19 days with your granddaughter is the worst thing you can imagine. To never see that beautiful face, hear that crazy laugh, see her cry and hold her until she is calm, see her dance, celebrate her birthday, watch her get married, is not right.

We have to celebrate the 19 years, 2 months and 19 days, because that is Sommer's Forever.

I love the way she would text me out of the blue "Gramma, I love you". When I gave her a gift she would always text me, thanking me for the item and telling me what she was going to do with it, or how much she liked it.

When something happened in her world, I would get 4 or 5 texts, one on top of the other, short, excited, finally the last one. When I caught up reading them, that was the one I had to respond to.

She wanted to learn to sew, and I encouraged her to come over anytime. She would call, "can I come over?" Of Course. She would arrive with a bag of clothes and say, "can we do this first". Cut the shirt, put some grommets on it, cut the shorts, sew them here, this way. We never got around to learning to sew.

Then she had to go, always in a hurry, going toward something, hanging out with friends. I nicknamed her "My Honey Badger, always going, never afraid of anything, even dying.

It will be hard to celebrate Christmas, but we have to, for each other and for her memory. the memories of past Christmases will suck the joy out of the day. We will get through it, being ever grateful for the ones we had with her. Light her candle, cry, laugh, talk about the good times, hold each other. Start a new tradition in her memory.

I have loved her for 19 years, 4 months and 22days and I will never stop.

Never forget her, this is Sommer's Forever.

Love you always, Gramma.

I will always remember Sommer smiling, bubbly and the leader of the pack. Running around the pool, laughing and inseparable from her sister. Your small but close family, always there and spending so much time all together. She is with you always, loved and remembered.

I remember the first time we met, it was Tuesday June 17 th 2002 just as the sun was rising I was sitting in the hospital chair holding you and our eyes locked for the first time in 2 days -I saw my wonderful baby in my arms and you were looking at you mom. I described this moment in my life to you not long ago late at night as we sat together talking as we did many times and you began to cry, but I comforted you by letting you know that memory will be etched in my head forever. I love you forever Sommer

You were always smiling and so happy when you were younger, seeing all your photos of you make me laugh and keeps me strong. Your sense of humour is crazy and I love you for that. Your last tattoos that you did” made in hell” on your left leg then angel wings on your right leg that you did on that Friday night suited you perfectly.

We miss you and luv u so much Sommer pie
