    I remember when Whitney was a little girl coming in the library.  She always had a smile and was happy.  I'm praying for the family.


    The world has lost a very special person.

    Whitney was an inspirition to so many people.  As a student in high school I remember her as an out going and caring person.  She had a smile that would cheer people and make them smile back.  One special memory of her was when she worked so many extra hours, even after school, to make many "Scooby Do" embroidery pieces on the sewing machine.  She was determined to get as many done as she could.  Whitney was a special person.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to Whitney's family and friends.    Colleen (and Larry) Thomas

    When I remember Whitney, it will be her beautiful smile, cheerful personality and her Servant's heart. She took wonderful care of her guests at the Target Pharmacy & always had a smile, wink, or kind word for her fellow team members.

    The light has dimmed, but has not extinguished.
