    First time on this website...thought I had been to them all.

    2 years and 2 months later John is finally convicted :) Thank God...the words we had all been waiting to hear for such a long time now. I see Jesse G and April wrote on here :MISS YOU GIRLS TOO!! So much has happened since July 2008. I am now living in Washington State and furthering my medical career. Holley, you were an inspiration to me, a best friend and an all around joy to hangout with. I still write on your facebook and think about you all the time. So many memories with you. Our trips to the beach...O'Charley's margaritas (maybe we'll have one or two...3,4,5) haha. Our trip to Raleigh for the long weekend to see Keith Urban and bawling our eyes out at the concert. Making friends with our hotel neighbors...All the fun times we had at work :) Drinking our Fuzes, eating gum like it was our job...MAN I MISS YOU.

    To anyone who never had the privledge to spend time with her or meet her...you missed out. She had such a free spirit, great mother, friend, daughter, sister, nurse etc. Truly amazing in every way & the world is a little less bright because of our loss. Keep flying with us Schmoozer.

    Love You. -Nicole

    Holley and Dustina are sisters. They both chose a life in service to their country. They both have beautiful children and were sucessfull at whatever they put their minds to do. However, Dustina and Holley never even had the chance to meet. They spoke on the phone about meeting but never followed through. They share the same birth mother. I won't go into that. Even though they weren't raised together, and didn't have the same parents taking care of them growing up: they believed in the same values and worked very hard to get to where they were. Dustina is my wife. I feel exceptionately lucky to have her as my wife. Looking at Holley's and Dustina's pictures side by side they are strikingly similar. I am sorry Jesse for your loss. Holley was a beautiful, vibrant, sucessfull, Mommy who had everything going for her. I am sitting in Kuwait waiting to come home from my fourth deployment right now. Dustina also has served a deployment in Iraq in 2007-2008. Holley I am sorry that I did not push harder for Dustina to come visit. You two would have certainly hit it off and become good friends. I wish that I could have helped somehow. My deepest sympathy, Your Brother-in-law, TIM

    Holley,
    It is truly unfortunate that even though I am your aunt , we never met. However, the tragedy of your passing has united family as nothing else ever has. People make a lot of mistakes as they try to find their way in life. If Christ can forgive me for my sins, then the rest of us can look past the sins of others and realize that people do things to us out of hurt, anger, and misunderstanding. I love your mother and I know I would have loved you too! Your aunt Kathy told me that you once said that you wish your family could be closer. In honor of your wish, I will truly try to uphold my end; to reach out and keep reaching. Peace be with you mighty warrior of God!

    To the family of Holley:
    You all have been in our prayers You will continue to be as I'm sure the wounds will take much time to heal. I have not met any of you but her Mother: Julie James. I have known her for over two years and she is a wonderful, sweet person. It saddens me so to read the bitter and hurtful things being said. From Son to Mother? I have a son and I don't know what I would do if he ever spoke of me in that manner. I don't know what has happened in your family in the past. I do know this has been a horrible tragedy and I'm sure Holley would love nothing more than to see her family come together and make peace with one another. We have all made mistakes in our lives. Isn't there a time to forgive? It would be so nice for Holley's family to keep her memory alive together. This doesn't mean that you have to share Thanksgiving Turkey or sing Christmas Carols together. Just make peace with one another. What could your Mother have done to make you hate her so? As your family has sadly learned, our time on earth is limited. We do not know when it will be out time to go;make sure you go with peace and love in your heart for one another. Call your Mother. Maybe you don't know the whole story. Maybe you were only told what someone wanted you to know. I don't know. Please honor Holley and her life by coming together. I will be praying for peace in your family.
    My heart is breaking for you; not only for the loss of Holley. But, for the loss of your love, respect and unity with one another. Holley look over your family~~bring them together in Heaven's name. Love, a prayerful friend

    I to was a victim of domestic abuse and almost killed in front of my daughter..People sometimes never understand until you walk a mile in those boots of ours. I pray for each and every person and someday wish to keep my battle up to show that strong violent history of spouse abuse in the military and how its no always easy to come forward. I hate to see that someone has left the earth in pain from that but know that your in a safe place and your memories will always follow all who know you and even some of us who never met you in person but in the heart know what it was like. I wish you had the chance to be a survivor like me but it was the hardest time of my life even having brain surgery from it and the pain I was in I almost sometimes wished it was over. I can tell you are missed and loved..and I may not be much but I'm a victim to and one who doesn't ever want to see that happen to others like what happened to us. I will always fight to make people know that its not a shame to be a victim but a struggle sometimes..may your presents be known to all the victims and help guide them to safety....God Bless...Lana

    I wasn't going to post anything, but seeing Jesse do so kind of changed my mind.

    Yeah. I'm the last one left on the floor. Go figure, right? We always talked about how we wanted to get started on our careers and push to do what we wanted to do. I was so amazed that you'd already jumped to take the GRE. You had so many ambitions.

    Well, it looks like things will really start changing now. Those of us who haven't already are making 1LT now. I keep thinking about how you'd be excited about this. You'd be promoted with us. With that happening, all of a sudden I'm being pushed to apply for courses and to go to C4. I signed up for it. Leilani already went. It even looks like I'll be deployed this fall. Cool, right? I remember saying I'd love to go on a deployment with you. It would've been fun. Things always managed to be fun and interesting when I worked with you. Even our rough days. I'm starting my packet for the ER course, too. I could just imagine you slapping my shoulder with excitement. Or, the usual roll of the eyes and the "thanks buddy" that followed any teasing. I'm sure you'd be doing enough teasing about me being left behind on MBU. You'd also let me vent, though, and I always appreciated that.

    I miss the hell out of you. The floor has never been the same.

    Oh, and Carroll is in Iraq now. Nicole is moving away. Keep an eye out for those two? I worry about them at times. I know, I probably don't even have to ask, but I was always the one that worried. Even if it was quietly.

    Hey Lady
    Just wanted to let you know I miss ya. I remember last time this year we were skipping out of hospital orientation to go to Applebees for our soup and salad lunches! Most of us have left the floor already. April is the only one that is left. Ava still asks about Miss Holley all the time. I hope the kids are doing great. I know your watching out for them. I'm praying for you and your family. I know this holiday season had been and will be very hard. Hopefully I can get back home to Iowa by summer. You know I'll come see you. Miss you girl. (Have a PT test here soon, you can drag me on the run-I could use the help).
    Jesse
