Comments and Encouragement: As I sit here im at a loss for words.I have dealt with quite a few friends passing on in the past few months unfortunately.There are no explanations for the question WHY?The only thing that helped me,was to cling to the memories and take something from each and hold onto it everyday.My thoughts are with everyone who was touched by Rhianna.And i will take her big smile & dance moves at my dad's (Zack's stepdad)wedding with me every day in my heart.

Comments and Encouragement: We are so sorry about the death of your beautiful daughter Rhianna. We wish we could find words that would relieve your pain, but we cannot imagine what they are. As a new father of a baby girl I can only imagine losing a child is one of the saddest life experiences possible, and words of true comfort are difficult to find. WE WILL CONTINUE TO HOLD YOU AND YOUR FAMILY IN OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS AS YOU MOVE THROUGH THE PROCESS OF GRIEVING AND HEALING. PLEASE KNOW THAT THERE ARE MANY LIKE US WHO ARE THINKING OF YOU May the Lord take Rhianna into his arms and lead her into heaven where there will be no more tears, no more suffering, no more pain. Grant her the fullness of joy and eternal peace” With deep sympathy, The Piddington's

Comments and Encouragement: Hi Rhianna, I know you don't know me, but I'm Sheryl McAlpin's sister. I've been thinking of and praying for you. I too was diagnosed with cancer several years ago, when I was 35. I am living proof that chemo is a wonderful thing. I never imagined I'd be remarried today, and have a 1 year old baby after all the treatments I received. I remember feeling extremely tired, as I'm sure you are,and then not being able to sleep at night. If you ever need anything or want to talk, I'd love to meet with you. You can beat this....I know you can. You have a wonderful support system, and I can't believe all the emails you have gotten~ Take care, I wish you the very best in your fight to overcome this. You can do it!!

Comments and Encouragement: Good morning,Sunshine! "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine", I am singing that song for you right now. I still remember when you were 3 years old, and you called be "Big Grandma" for the first time. I said, "Rhianna, why do you call me big grandma?" And you replied, "because you are big, and my other grandma is little". Wow, you were a precocious little toddler, and I am glad that you named me such a very special name. This morning I am reading Psalms 103:1-5 just for you, and I hope and pray that you are blessed by the words that the Lord says just for you. Remember the Lord's everlasting love for you, and we love you too. I will always thank you that I am your "Big" grandma, and that "you are my sunshine". Marlene and Dick Schilling

We know it is more difficult for you to flash that wide smile now, but we know it's there and we see it in our hearts. You are a beautiful young woman and with your courage and determination and the help of your family and friends and also the dedication of your doctors, you will overcome this. We wish we could be there by your side, but actually we and many others are constantly at your side through our prayers. God loves you and so do we.

Comments and Encouragement: Hannah banana, I love you and think about you all the time. The crazy Tappy bunch is rooting for you and want you to know that. Remember when the United Airlines pilot came on the PA and said “these are the 8 most important people on this plane?” Well YOU are the most important person on this plane and when you need a laugh, think about how you can’t pick your mom’s crazy friends and people who eat butter balls in foreign countries are funny and yellow plastic swirling in water does not in fact look like a scary eel. I would use the phrase ‘buzz kill’ to make you laugh but can’t in this public forum. Love to you, our “Chelsea rose”, Mom/Dad and both sets of loving grandparents Christy

Comments and Encouragement: I am Melissa and Lindsay's Mom, we do not know Rhianna well, Lindsay and Rhianna went on a Road Trip a few years back to see Hanson, the band that united all them as friends. Lindsay (although spelled differently is named because of Lindsey Buckingham...like Rhianna ia a reference to Stevie Nicks...I remember talking about that with Rhiannas' mother when we had dropped by to meet her prior to Lindsay and Rhiannas road trip. I have dealt with cancer when my Mother was ill and I understand the struggle, although I cannot imagine how much more difficult it must be when it is your child. I know that Melissa and Lindsay are praying for her and so am I. I have a special candle holder that holds a votive and it makes a star desgign on the wall behind it, I burn it when I think someone is in pain or hurting and right now I am burning it for her. I hope all of our prayers are answered...my heart goes out to you.

Your name and story came through the HP prayer chain and I just want you to know that there are several here who are praying for you. I set a reminder in Outlook to go off every day first thing in the morning so I'm personally praying for you daily. I've had cancer before (although not to the extent you have it) and know how frightening that can be. I pray for peace for you and your family as you battle the unknown. May God carry you though this and cradle you in His loving arms. I wish you health and hope. I'll be reading your website and applauding the victories you accomplish! --Mark

Comments and Encouragement: Hi Jodi, I am speechless. Fiona told me this morning about Rhianna. I am so very sorry that she is going through this. Who knows why these horrible things happen. I know that feeling of everyday bringing on a new challenge and it makes you feel as though you are walking on eggs...and maybe if you don't get out of bed that day, whatever it is that is looming out there, will just go away. It doesn't though, and hopefully THIS day will bring that positive turn of events that you are all waiting and praying for! Rhianna has age on her side and I imagine she is spunky like her mom and will get through this. If there is ANYTHING I can do to help you and your family, please let me know. My home phone is 970-482-6744 and my cell phone is 970-988-1107. I would be happy to come by and take care if the animals, help with the house, bring food by...whatever I can do. Remember, it is really important that you ask for help when you need it. You need to be there for Rhianna and you can let other people take care of all the rest of the stuff for you! Hang on to each other and remember that your friends are here for you. You just have to holler and let us know how we can help. Take good care. I will be checking into the site daily to see how Rhianna is doing, but please call me and let me know how I can help. Big hugs, Louise

Comments and Encouragement: I finally have an answer to the question that teachers had asked me when I was younger, who is your hero or who do you admire most. I admire you the most my blue eyed angel, I admire your strength, your courage, your perseverance, and your spirit. You are absolutely the most amazing woman I know. I support you every step of the way, every twist and turn. I have been thinking of you every day all day long (nothing unusual about that). I know that you will beat this, you will heal, you will be better than ever. You are just as ornery as Grandma Lestrud, and as strong as her and mom. You are my world, my all and I love you very, very much.

Comments and Encouragement: Hannah bannana, I want to share with you a memory that popped into my head not four nights ago. A memory I will cherish as an all time favorite for the rest of my life. Its of you and I on a beach in Greece, and the roles we took of Scuba Sally and Scuba Sarah. Dorky, as it may seem we had a blast, like most times, you brought a smile and a certain warmth to the situation. I hope that some light may be shed on your situation and you can get out of this the love so many people share for you. You are a natural born fighter Rhianna, you get that from your mother, and a tender quiet love, you get from your father. You may not have the strength right now, but you have one heck of a support structure around you. I love you Rhianna. Stay strong, Stay positive.
