Comments:It was a very long time ago but there is this one memory of Cassie that sticks with me. I remember looking down at her feet and she was wearing these adorable berkinstocks. She was so unique with this crazy, cute style that made me want to be just like her. And i must admit- i went home that day, put on my sister's berks, and wore them every day that summer.

Comments:this and appreciate what they have. It's very touching. Personally, I have always known that eveything in life is fleeting, and that I should savour what I have when I have it, and reading this affirms my beliefe. I have the sudden urge to tell all the friends and family I have just how much they mean to me. (not like I don't already, but it's always goof to do...) Well, it's been... an experience.

Comments:I happened to come to this site by chance, but I'm glad I did. Reading all this kinda puts you in a whistful mood. I knew a girl, Jamie, who had just as much life in her as your Cassie, and Jamie left us at the age of eleven, claimed by cancer. When that happened, I promised myself that I would never forget her, and I see that I am not the only one to make sure the departed aren't forgotten. It's a great idea to make a memorial web site... even people who don't know you or Cassie can learn from

Comments:What a beautiful tribute. I did not have the pleasure of knowing your lovely daughter. I first thought I had simply "happened" upon this site. I now realize that I am to share this with another grieving mother who recently lost her first born/only son to AIDS. I have been spiritually counseling her and saw several things on Cassie's site which will certainly be of comfort to her. I am so sorry for your loss. You have a wonderful daughter (forever in the present tense). God bless you - all!

We are so lucky to have Cass in our lives, though her stay here on earth was brief. And Cassie is lucky to have had friends as special as all of you. Good luck as you begin the end of your high school careers and move on to the next chapter. All of my love, Maya

I never visited this sight before until now, it's wonderful.Every time I think of Cassie I cry because I know there will never be another person like her. She had this special sparkle about her. Her and I weren't that close but whenever we talked it was like we had never stopped being friends.Cassie was the best, she always knew how to make me smile no matter what

She was witty and sarcastic, yet so sweet that you knew that she was only joking. She was amiable, but you could always trust her with a secret. She was fun-loving, but she knew how to be serious. She was a free spirit, but she also managed to be dependable and loyal. For all these reasons, I miss her so much and

I always want to tell them how much their daughter meant to me, but I can never do it. I feel I will hurt them by bringing back memories. So I always just say hi and ask how they're doing. It's so hard to imagine how they live without her when I struggle without her. So I just want to tell them I'm sorry and that I hope they're doing well. See you guys soon! Love you

Comments:After 5th grade, I never really saw Cassie that much. We never ended up in any of the same classes and our friendship drifted apart. I'd see her in the halls from time to time and we'd smile, that's about it. Then one day in 9th grade, I saw her in the halls after school. She had the biggest smile on her face, probably for no reason at all, except that she was always happy. She smiled at me and I smiled back.

I could never imagine someone else knowing what the "Group W" bench was at such a young age. My family and I spent Thanksgiving the same way listening to Alice's restaurant. We even go t

Comments:I remember building the set for "Annie", and all the little girls were complaining about how hard the orphan beds were. But not Cassie. She was always happy, and just ready and willing to do her job in the show. She was always someone we could count on to be there, and working hard. I guess she gets that from her family. Whenever I think back to Kids for Kids, I remember all the work and generosity your family gave us. I remember all the long talks with Vic about the craft of Acting. He was one of the only adults to actually "get it." I think Cassie "got it" too. Our thought and prayers go out to you this holiday season. Take care. --Sandy Nagar

Comments:Sister, I just lit a candle for you. Here are some words from the song I listened to. "Tears and fears and feeling proud, to say I love you right out loud. Dreams and schemes and circus crowds, I've looked at life that way. But now old friends are acting strange, they shake their heads, they say I've changed. Well something's lost, but something's gained in living everyday. I've looked at life from both sides now, from win and lose, and still somehow it's life's illusions I recall. I really don't know life at all." I miss you, Cass. Happy Birthday and Peace Be With You in this season and always. Love, May

I will never get over not hearing Heather's laughter as so many mentioned Cassie's laughter. To often we take the simplist things for granted. Bless you for not letting her life go away and not continue to shine.
