On what felt like the coldest day in January, just a few weeks before the ice castle was gone for another year, we made the trip to Edmonton for a winter grad session. Sydney’s teal blue dress was perfect against the whites and blues of the ice castle. Standing out just enough, but fitting in…

    This is a beautiful tribute – because she was just the person you portray. As a parent who also lost a child in an accident, I particularly likes your description of an ‘old soul.’ My sympathy to you, you family and the Rajottes.ReplyCancel

    You don’t know me but I have nothing but respect for way you have written here. Adrianna was the brightest person I knew and had such an influence in me through all of 4H years together. Being friends with all her brothers, I felt I could consider them all family. Thank you for doing this for this amazing young woman.ReplyCancel

    A lovely dedication to this lovely young woman. May all who celebrate her life today remember her as you describe her here – the funny, intelligent and friendly person she was. Condolences to the family and friend who will miss her so much.ReplyCancel

    Though I cannot identify with the pain that you are feeling presently,my heart felt compassion goes out to you as a family at this time! We will never understand why a young vibrant life is snuffed out suddenly,as long as we’re on this side of heaven! I am praying for much strength & courage for you all, as you go through the mourning period! Your situation was brought to my attention by my granddaughter Amanda,who was,as well, touched by Adrianas’ life,in the short time that she knew her!

    lovingly
