So much energy, vibrance and joy in such a tiny package! You, Holly are a light in darkness, an angel on Earth. In your short time you have touched so many people on so many levels I doubt you even realized how profoundly, so humble you are. I described you as no nonsense, take charge and full of life and you are all that and more! Words cannot express how knowing you has helped me, but know that you made a difference in my life. I will miss your beautiful smile and zest for adventure. Rest is peace Mo stóirín.

Dear Lori and family,
Our prayers are with you all during this very difficult time.
Holly was born less than a week before my daughter, Meghan, but the two only met a couple of times at family events. I didn't know Holly as an adult, but from her picture and what everyone is saying about her I'm so sorry I missed having that opportunity. It's easy to see that she was a blessing to so many.
May our loving God bring you comfort and healing, and hope for a reunion in heaven.
All our love,
Jacquelynn Bost Morris, Brent Morris, Meghan Longhurst, and Justin Longhurst

I would like to share my deepest condolences with Holly's family. I did not have the pleasure and honor of knowing her or even having the opportunity to speak with her (which judging by the comments by my fellow Acxiom coworkers is indeed my loss), but considering the feelings shared by those at Acxiom who knew her and worked with her, she made a positive, lasting impression on them and her presence will indeed be sorely missed.

I knew Holly since we were kids in the same neighborhood. We shared some really good memories together. Coloring our hair with kool-aid, late night movies n pizza, sleep overs, taking random pictures every where we went together. there was never a dull moment. We were great friends when we were kids and i remember dating her brother Aaron. I dont even remember how old i was. I will truly miss her and my thoughts and prayers are with her and her family. This is for you Holly. I love you and you will forever be in my heart!!!

Light a candle for those we mourn. Into a new life they will be born. Do not look for them at the grave site, they are somewhere else radiating their beautiful light. They have gone to a new world where there is no darkness no pain. Their light and essence will always remain. Light a candle for those who have left this ...mortal place. They are free to travel through time and space. When we think of them, they are near. When we sit in a beautiful garden, their voices we hear. When we listen to a divine symphony, we close our eyes. their faces we see. Light a candle for they have not really gone. With each flickering flame, in your hearts they will always belong. We miss you!

love always

Holly was an amazing person. I had the privilege of playing a few games with her on the hurling field. She was fearless out there, and I'm sure it was that way in day to day life. She will be missed greatly. My heart goes out to all effected by this. She will live on in the memories we have and in the lives she has had an impact on. To her family, I don't know you, but Holly was one of a select few who took a higher path in life. She gave so much, and I know that she will be in paradise for the good she brought into the world.

To the Family of Ms Bulfinch,please accept our deepest sympathy over the loss of your daughter.We know that the death of a loved one can disrupt our life so bad that in the weeks and months that follow,feeling of grief and despair may become overwhelming.A person can become so disoriented that he feels unworthy to approach God in prayer But at a time like this God want us to come to him (Psalms 55:22).God promise that soon sickness,sorrow,pain and death will be taken away forever.( isaiah 25:8;John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21:3-5).I hope these texts bring you encouragement.

My deepest sympathy to Holly''s family.  I was the director of the day care center that Holly and her brother Adam attended when they were just tiny kids--they were both so adorable.  I was happy to read what a fine person Holly turned out to be but I was so sorry to hear of her passing.  Such a tragedy when someone so young with so many good qualities passes.  I will keep the family and Holly in my prayers.
