How do I begin to explain how I feel about losing my best friend, my life, my everything. The hurt it brings to me, my family, Cayla, Joan and Ken is unbelievable. I think back to the good times and I even think back to the bad. I think back to crashing the car into the garage and taking pictures at 5th grade graduation. My heart will forever be missing a huge piece that was my Hannah. 12 years until forever, will always keep her memory alive with Joan, Ken, and Cayla. Till we meet again my beautiful other half.

Joan - I haven't seen you for many years, but I would always ask Tammy how you were doing when I'd see her at my brother Mark and Donna's house. I always hoped that we'd get re-acquainted one day and that I'd get to meet Hannah. After all, you met my Ali shortly after her birth. I'm heartbroken for your loss and Ken's and I'm struggling to find words of comfort and compassion. The loss of my father years ago was almost unbearable, so I can only imagine the utter, excruciating pain of losing a daughter as young and as beautiful as Hannah. This is the time when you're going to need to be surrounded by friends and family, because they're the ones who are going to help you and comfort you during this very trying time in your life. Your grief will lessen in time. I promise. And know that Hannah isn't gone, Joan, she's just in a better place - a beautiful place. You and Ken will see her again in that place - Heaven. Please take good care of yourself, for I'm sure Hannah would want you to. You are and will continue to be in my prayers. With sympathy and love, Karen, Bob, and Ali Cox

My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family during your time of sorrow. Although I did not know your daughter, my son and his friends did (they will be starting the 11th grade in September) your loss really hits the community. I hope with passing time, you both find the strength to live off of the memories your beautiful girl shared with you. Stay strong - god bless you all.

dear Joan, I am deeply sorrowed at your sudden and tragic loss as are the rest of my family, I am sure Larry will watch out for her. When Ginny lost her daughter at 10 years old she was consoled by something the priest said to her which was you haven't lost your daughter you are only separated for a time. I believe that to be true.Love Robert

To the family I am so sorry for your loss. I was saddened to hear from former students of Hannah's passing. She was a bright student who always knew how to make the other students laugh. I will never forget Hannah and her staying after school just to talk about life. She was a great friend to those around her and great daughter from what she told me! May she rest in peace.

Our sincerest condolences.Love,Mr & Mrs Robert R. Coccaro Jr.

Dead Joan and Ken,My second parents....Hannah will always be more of a gain than a loss. I wouldn't trade knowing her for anything, even if it meant taking away the pain and sorrow now.Her beauty could make anyone stare. Her laugh could make any sad heart happy. Her humor could break any silence. Meeting her in third grade was the start to an exciting chapter in life. I'll never forgot how people, and I, felt around her; she always made sure everyone was smiling and would never hesitate to do something for someone. Yes, our "lazy" girl. Through school, the holidays, and just at home.. Hannah has been the best friend I could now only dream about. Our silly videos, our movie dates, even our PlayLand trips with you guys, and mostly our late night conversations, laughs, and cries will always live in my head and heart. My most favorite memories from growing up were made with Hannah. She was so happy and gave so much love, and in return knew she was very, very loved. We will all help you two to keep the memories alive, forever. She will always remain my best friend. And she will always remain your beautiful, one of a kind, young girl that you gave as a gift to the world. Love, Cayla

My heart broke this morning when I heard that Hannah had passed away so suddenly, at such a young age. I had the pleasure of meeting Hannah when she was 7 years old and instantly fell in love with her. Her beautiful eyes, her cheerful smile, her contagious laugh, and her incredibly ambitious nature. She was a beautiful little girl, inside and out. I can't imagine the depth of your pain, so please know, that I will keep you all close in my thoughts and prayers. Love to all of you and your precious angel Hannah.

So incredibly sorry for your loss. My 17 yr old daughter Tori knew Hannah from Camp Combe from when they were younger and they have kept in touch over the years. They had been in contact two weeks ago. My daughter is heartbroken as is everyone that knew Hannah is I am sure. As a mother of an only child, I cannot imagine what you are going through. Peace be with you in your wonderful memories. Take comfort in the love you shared and will always share with your daughter. Your angel will always shine down on you.

Rest in peace Hannah.
