My heart breaks at this senseless act that took this beautiful young lady. Throughout the years that I knew her at Antietam Academy she was always the first to step up help someone else. She made many days brighter with her smile. I pray her family and friends find peace and comfort. May GOD keep you in his loving arms and carry you through your grief.
