I am so sorry for your loss and there are no words that can be said that will help. To lose a child is without words, I lost a son and I can only pray for you to accept as there will never be understanding but I pray that you accept God's will and know that there is a plan. You are in my prayers and know that for your precious daughter there is no time and to her, you are just a holler away as there is no time in heaven and God's grace to you while you pass thru this time.

I have never met any of you but work with a few people that are close to you. I just want to hug you all and tell you how sorry I am for the loss of your precious baby girl. I am deeply saddened to hear about this, it's the worst thing a parent could ever have to go through. I know that nothing can replace the emptiness you must feel in your hearts. I send you all of my condolences and I pray for peace, strength, healing and comfort be with you all through this difficult time. I have children myself and just could not imagine going through such a tragedy that you have to go through. My heart deeply aches for you. You are in my heart, thoughts and prayers. Hazel is now a beautiful Angel flying high in the sky watching over her beautiful family. R.I.P. Beautiful Hazel.

I never met your daughter nor do I know you, but your family is apart of our community and my heart broke for your family when I heard about Hazel. I pray God will provide you strength and peace during this difficult time and for the days ahead when the world keeps moving but all you want to do is turn back time. Let the memories of her warm your heart and bring a smile to your face.

No words can express the devastation of this loss and none will take away the pain. Please know your family is being thought of and lifted up in prayer. John 11:25 "Jesus said to her, 'I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die.'"

From: Jessica (Holzhauser) Pottorff & Family

There are no words to describe how deeply sorry I am for your loss. Abby I have known you since you were just a tiny adorable little girl and although we don't see each other often I have so enjoyed watching your little family grow on FB. You are such a beautiful person and Hazel was so blessed to have you as her Mommy. I won't say all the worthless cliches like how God needed another angel because I can't imagine that is much comfort but I will say that Hazel is resting peacefully in Jesus arms, He loves her so much and you will see her again in glory. I am praying for you with all my heart that He will get you through this difficulty and I trust He will. May you rest in His arms as well. All my love to you and your family!!
