  1. Dearest Caitlin,
    We are friends of your father. We are so crushed that you had to leave so soon – you have accomplished so much in your young life, and had so much more love and healing to bring to this world. Your father was crestfallen when he told us of how so much he was looking forward to you and him working together at his medical practice. He loves you so dearly, and misses you so much. His only comfort at this time is to know that he will reunite with you in Heaven. May you rest in peace, Sweet Caitlin. Our prayers and our hearts go out to your family. We pray for the Lord to bring comfort and peace to all your loved ones.
    With Peace in Christ,
    John and the BCR Family

    We enjoyed our time with Caitlin in her youth and seeing her grow into the beautiful woman she was.

    We will miss her smile, laughter and her fun nature.
    The love she shared as a friend, to Malaina, and to me truly as a second daughter and all the happiness with the man she loved, is the testament of how precious Caitlin is and was.

    Your beautiful daughter gave a special part of herself to so many and she will live inside our hearts forever.

    May Gods love and peace surround you through this sorrow and to know Caitlin has found victory. One day we will all be together in heavens realm.
