    We all just wanted to say how wonderful Holly was. Everytime I saw her, she would give a huge hug as I came in to see her and as I was leaving. We were shocked to hear she passed away and she will be greatly missed by all of us. She never had one bad thing to say about anybody and was a wonderful mom. She will be greatly missed, that’s for sure. We are so sorry for your loss. Sue, Joe, Crystal and Trevor Smith

    I cant even explain how I was when I heard about Holly. I have been out of the loop for so long that I just found out on her recent anniversary. My deepest sympathy goes out to ur family and I just know that she will live through her son. She was such an amazing woman and great friend throughout highschool she was always there for me through the good and bad times and I will forever remember and love her.
