Dear Bobby and John:  
     Ed and I are so, so, sorry for the tragic loss of your granddaughter.  No human words would be adequate for this tremendous pain that you are experiencing.  You are so strong in your Catholic faith, and you know that you must draw your strength from Holy Mary, Mother of God as She leads you to Our Dearest Lord’s peace.   Love, Ed & Peggy McDevitt

Dear Reisinger Family,
While I did not have the pleasure of meeting your daughter, I worked with the Red Cross Club that she was a part of at LCHS.  The club did great work for the Red Cross and it was truly a pleasure to work with them.  My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

To the Reisinger Family,
      Heavy is my heart for your loss.  I taught Jocelynne art for seven years and watched her grow into a beautiful young woman. Joey and Robbie are current students of mine and please know I will be there for them. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers daily. With great sympathy and loving memories,
Mrs. Pat McGuire

I was a coworker of Jocelynne’s at Darrenkamp’s and she was a joy to work with. I will remember her smile and her kindness to others. She will be greatly missed.

I was absolutely heartbroken to read the news and find that someone I had seen everyday, while I was still in high school, had gone. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. She was truly a special and a wonderful girl that could brighten up any place she went. Indeed, I will always remember her smile as well as her kindness.

Much love to all,
Courtney Scheingraber

To the family:  Our daughter Olivia is handling the process better than I am.  Jocie was a awesome friend and they spent all day together the day before swimming..  That night my daughter came home and said to me we had a great time today..  I will never forget the conversation for the rest of my life..  Words will never express how we feel; but we will pray for you and the family always and forever.  My God watch over you and all of us.

Joe Legenstein

Please accept our sincere sympathy on your loss. We know all too well how you are hurting as we lost a 16 year old son in an auto accident in 1979(would now be 50 years old). Please know that the passing of time will help lessen your feelings of loss but they will never completely cease to exist. With the help of God they will be bearable. Our prayers will be with you.

Ronni and Joe Sauter

We did not know your daughter by name but we did know her through her cheerfulness and her smile. We often saw her at Darrenkamp’s, in Jane’s Cafe, on Wednesday evenings when we would stop there for supper on our way to church.  I don’t know that we ever saw her without a smile.  Our hearts were broken when we saw the account of the accident. Please be encouraged to know that she touched many lives.

To the Reisinger Family:No words can ever make your loss easy or take the loss you feel any easier. I have known Jocelynne since her RCS days and from St Joe’s Church. I pray for her but I am praying for the family especially Robbie & Joey. I hope they know that she is still watching over them & will know that she is their own "Guardian Angel". Carole,Erin Good.

Nina and Jay, I was so sorry to read about your sweet grand-daughter’s passing.  You are in the thoughts and prayers of the entire LCHS Carnival committee.

To the Reisinger family,
I am so sorry for your loss.  I pray that the Lord will sustain you and give you peace at this time of tragic loss. In the days to come, celebrate her life and her memory; and let your tears flow as Jesus does the healing.  I will keep you in my prayers.

Stacy M Webster

I am so sorry for your loss. I did not know Jocelyn personally, but I did lose my brother suddenly through a traffic accident 15 years ago. Our pastor told us that the shock and overwhelming grief we felt was shared by the disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ and I somehow felt comfort in knowing this. With time, the grief gets less painful, but it never really goes away completely. My parents I believe suffered the most from this loss, so please be there as much as you can to bear Jocelyn’s Mom and Dad up as best you can. I am keeping your family in my prayers. God bless you all.

My thoughts and prayers are with you on this most sad day.
God Bless you all and give you comfort.
