    Latoya, Darlene, Darrell and Family — We are praying your strength in the Lord. I feel your pain. I’ll always remember the sweet little girl that teased me with her dolls when you visited mom in Princeton Hospital. I watched her grow into an even more beautiful younger lady. God will help you endure. Love you family. Lynda Walker Johnson

    So incredibly heartbroken. What a beautiful soul she was. Latoya it’s been years, but I have so many childhood memories with Aushlan on West Scott Drive. I spent lots of afternoons in your home with that sweet girl. Although I haven’t seen or heard from Aushlan in years. Makes me sad life does that. Going separate ways after childhood and growing apart. But I always loved her. That was my right hand girl 6-11 years old. I will never forget the time when we were little and Aushlan randomly decided to hit me upside my head with a hard back book. I came to tattle to you and was crying. You couldn’t help but bust out laughing. I laugh now too. I don’t remember what I did. But she was not playing with me that day! Prayers for you and your parents, and the rest of Aushlan’s loved ones grieving. She was truly a phenomenal person. I’m so very sorry. Rest In Peace, Beautiful 💕
