Strahle, Makayla Marie

Our deepest sympathies in the loss of a precious child. My heartfelt sympathies is with all the family and friends. I too know the pain of losing a dear sister so suddenly. A few words offer peace at a difficult time, perhaps the words expressed at Revelation 21:3,4 provide you with both comfort and hope along with the realization that soon tragedies such as this will one day be thing of the past. Our loving heavenly Father promises that by means of his son Jesus, the resurrection hope to our loved ones who has fallen asleep in death. (John 5:28,29). May you find comfort in these encouraging words.

Please know that your friends, co-workers and the whole community are thinking of you and praying for you and your beautiful daughter. The loss of a child is devastating and you feel that you will never overcome it but rest assured it will get better. When the hurt, pain and anger subside take solace in knowing that God is watching over MaKayla and she is ok. Never forget her smiles, her love and her laughter and she will always be with you.

Dear Dale and Family,

You probably don't remember me, but we went to Hillcrest together. I was heartbroken to hear of your loss. I just wanted to let you know that my family (and many other of our schoolmates) are sending prayers in your behalf. I know without a doubt that you will be with your beautiful Makayla again - that she is not gone, just in another place where she is and will be watching over you until you are together again. I know that these words don't do justice to the loss you must certainly be feeling at this time, but maybe they will help in a time of need. May God bless you and your family during this difficult time.

With love and support from Idaho Falls,

Melissa Puckett (Fischer) and Family

MaKaylas family,

Our family would like to extend our sincere sorrow and prayers for your family. This is a path we don't choose and is a painful one to walk. Please know that our family will be praying for you now and in the coming months. Our beautiful daughter was killed suddenly this past February by a drunk driver. She was a senior at Riverton High School. If you need anything, we are here and we understand all too well. Our faith is what has held us up. Cling to that and know many people are praying for you and will continue to do so. We are so very very sorry.

Cal O'Neal Family - 12/27/2011

We are so sorry about the accident. Makayla moved to Wyoming the same year I did. I spent 4th and 5th grade with her, and we moved to Idaho this year. I loved being in the same class both years. At school Makayla was a little shy and I really liked her, so I would talk to her often. I brought a cold lunch every day and Makayla did too, We were the only ones who brought cold lunches almost every day to school. I always sat by her and kept her company. I really enjoyed talking to her. Makayla was really starting to open up to more people, and everyone loved her. I could tell she really loved her family. She made me smile when ever I spent time with her. We miss her so much, and we wish the best to you.

Our entire family wishes to send our love and condolences. My Dad taught piano at Wind River and also sends his love. We are so sorry for your loss. You are all very much in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Dan and family,

I was so, so sorry to hear about this tragedy. My heart breaks for you and your family. I have been praying every day since I heard this news that God's love would surround you and your family, and you would be comforted in this time of sorrow. Makayla is with her Lord in paradise where she can never be hurt; you will see her again...I hope you all can take heart in this promise. I sent prayer requests to many brothers and sisters in blue here in Colorado who are also believers. I received numerous e-mails back that they are also praying for you and your family. We stand with you in this tragedy, and if you need anything, send me an e-mail.
