I did not know the family or Sierra, but from what has been said so far, she must have been a wonderful girl who I would have loved to meet. As a sister in Christ I know she is in Heaven with God. Being from the community of Ravenna, I just wanted to share my condolences, and wish the family some comfort and peace in this very difficult time. My prayers are with the family and with all who knew Sierra. God bless you all!

Love, Amy
