I knew Holly beginning at Churchill Jr. High in 8th grade. She was vivacious, yet down-to-earth. She had a sense of humor and always greeted people with a smile. She was the first girl to ask me to a formal dance (I think we were in 9th grade); it was the Job's Daughters formal at the Masonic Temple on South Temple. She definitely was a sweetheart, if ever there was one. When I heard that she had become a nurse, it was satisfying news to me, as I knew she would be a great one. On the other hand, to hear that she had become an ALS patient was something unbearable. This was the kind of debilitation that Holly certainly did not deserve. It is a terribel "way to go" for someone so sweet as she. My condolences to her family and friends....

Holly was a dear friend in high school. I remember, before we could drive, walking up to a party at her house with Bill Souvall. We had fun! Also, we went to the Senior Prom - she asked me out of compassion! Again, we had fun! 

More recently we crossed paths when she was working for the Federal Agency, Children with Special Health Care Needs at its Utah headquarters next to Primary Children's Hospital. My impression was that she was a very experienced pediatric nurse and an excellent administrator giving excellent care to children, especially those most in-need. 

May she feel our gratitude and may all who loved her and cared for her feel peace.
