Hey Rita, I just wanted to let you know that this morning I read your yearbook and it broke my heart that no one signed it. Now you know everybody would have signed that book (smile). I miss you and still think about you everyday, my heart still hurts even though they have arrested this guy for your murder, I still in my mind set can't understand this terrible situation that he put us in. The only good to come out of it is that one day I will see that beautiful smile again and be happy again with you. Believe it or not Rita I'm writing a book about this whole ordeal, not for money or fame but because your life meant so much to so many people. You are truly missed and I still think about how you use to kiss my left cheek when we passed in the hallway, that smile, that singing, dancing for me and little Harry, You were truly a blessing and I thank God everyday that he let me have you for those 16 years. I love you so much. Love always and forever Mommy. xxoxoxoxo
I dont even know what to say. This is straight out to you Sherita. I think and pray for you every day and wishing this day would come soon. Im so happy justice was finally served, I still HATE what happened and wish i could do anything to bring that beatiful smile back. I give my condolences and my praires to the Williams family, and Sherita your always in my heart.

In my prayers always / Maureen Malechuk (Farr) (Mom's former co-worker )
I am a former co-worker of Sherita's mom - I knew her family for years and they are tremendously strong in their faith in our Lord and great people.
I cannot imagine what this ordeal has done to you all. Although it has been quite a few years since we've been in touch, I just want to let you all know that you are constantly in my prayers and thoughts.
I do hope that the latest developments have given you at least a bit of comfort.
Wilma and Harry - you are very strong and loving parents.......I wish you all the best in your lives going forward.
Finally saying goodbye / Sheena Y. (High School Friend )
I remember clearly the day we had seen each other at walgreens. We bumped into each other as I was leaving to go to work. I introduced you to my mother and you said hi with your beautiful smile. You asked what I was doing and I said about to go to boring work. We hugged each other as we departed and said see ya later, take care. Later on that night I can remember it as if it were yesterday, I camde home and turned the tv on and the first thing I saw was your face. I didnt know what had happened because the news had switched over to a different subject. I quickly turned to the next news channel and there you were again. With your big smile and under your picture was information on anything about your death. I broke out in tears. I just seen you I said. I couldn't believe it was true. All I kept saying is I just seen her before I went to work. I don't understand why. Im pretty sure no one does. I keep the memories of us always joking around at our school stop waiting for our bus to hurry up. You brung so much joy. I can remember you in home room always talking and smiling away. I have to take the 36 bridge everyday. It breaks my heart everytime I see your picture. I always drive by and say hey rita, miss you. the first thing i see is your smile. My prayers goes out to you and your family. I am sorry it took so long for me to actually tell you what I had locked up inside of me. But when I found out that your case was being finally solved it broke loose. I am sorry I couldn't stay longer at walgreens to talk to you more. I kno you are in a better place. I just want to finally say goodbye in this world because i kno we will see each other later on. love you girl...p.s. do you remember the annoying bus lady, gosh she didn't wait for no one...lol...miss you
My heart hurts for you and with you. / Dawn Hill (Parents Friend )
Wilma and Harry,
A year has not gone by that I have not thought about Sherita, every October and every Thanksgiving. God only knows what you have been through these last 5 years. I prayed for this day, that the monster that did this would be caught and God has now answered all our prayers. Now you must pray for strength to get through the trail and pray he never again sees another day of freedom. I love you both and my heart hurts for you and with you. Now Sherita can rest in peace and you can have some a little peace also. Forever your friend Dawn
In deepest sympathy / Julia M.
To the Williams family, I am a person from the area who has followed the tragic story of your beautiful daughter's passing. But more importantly, I am a mother who can only imagine the agony you both must have been going through. But I can not imagine what you are feeling now. I know you will never feel joy but I at least hope you have a sense of relief. The upcoming months will be sure to open some horrible wounds for you, but with the grace of God, maybe when all is done, those horrid wounds will stop throbbing. I will pray that they will someday heal. I recently read a book that goes directly to what you are going through. It is called "The Shack". I am not a reader, but a friend, on whom this book had a profound impact, insisted I read it. It deals with a child's passing at first, but the bulk of the book deals with the father meeting God, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and his quest to find out "WHY". Though rather deep in parts, I was glad I stuck with it till the end. You may find solace in it. It is not a religious book. It is a work of fiction, a short novel. But it truly speaks to what you are going through. Please accept my sympathies, from one parent to another. After reading the book, I am so convinced that Sherita is at peace. I pray your family will someday find it also. Close

I know you are smiling up in heaven as you watch us doing our daily living. I know your laughter is endless all day long. Represent the family while walking around heaven all day. Your job here on earth was done. You did a good job, being a friend to so many with your smile and support. Your friends always express how you was always there for them. I know you enjoyed life. Even though I was not around you alot, I always remember our last time together at Shantell's baby shower. How you didn't want to play the game but you did for Aunt Cel you did. That smile is always with me. I love You.

sadden heart / Markita Hoskins (annoying friend )
Sherita, its been a while since ur passing and i still cant believe that your are gone. i remember when i got the news of what happen my heart broke. You were such a loving and caring person and lord know the person who did this is suffering and will suffer for taking the life of gods child. It just baffels me that some one would want to hurt you. There was not a mean bone in your body, thats why every body loved you. Although you are gone we still remember you for who you were....Thank Pinky for that...She is truly what a best friend is. There is a walk for you soon and I will be there to support and bring you justice....I love you baby girl and truly miss you and you smile....Love you Rita. Close
I am starting to sleep in late like i use to..you use to hate it. I remember i use to wake up at 1pm and find you at my house watching tv and eating all my food..lol. Since you have been gone the tables have turned. I now walk over and help myself to any snacks i can find. This visit was actually suppose to be productive but did not work out that way. We are planning your 5th Annual March but this yr we have incorporated a block party. It is going to be the best celebration so far I know it. Your mom thinks she can just take naps but I told her she better get up!! So she got up and went to get her nails done....hahaha. What can I say.. she deserves it. She has been working so hard. Yup she is still the backbone of the family.
Thank you for always being there for me Rita. I need you more than ever now.. John has no idea how much i cry for you. I try not to worry him. Continue to look over us bestest. I love you so much and miss you dearly. Until next entry... XOXO.
