Can't believe you're really gone! RIP  / Lauren Wilkins (Childhood Friend )
To say that I am late with this is an understatement.. I am a childhood friend of Rina. I use to live next door to Rocky and Miss Bee on Third Street back in our Blessed Sacrament days. She was like the older sister I never had. I loved Rina and my family loved her too. I was so sad when I found out that Rina was moving to Texas. Rina and I reconnected back in I want to say in 2001-2003ish at Miss Bee's funeral. I loved Miss Bee and Rocky! They always treated me like family. The last conversation I remember having with Rina was that I would be her pen pal. She wrote her number and address on a piece of paper (which i have til this day). Of course I lost the paper for a couple years and found it back it 2009. I called her and wrote her letters and never received a response. I didn't think much of it. One day earlier this year I said to myself "Let me google Rina" and see if her Facebook comes up in my search. Only thing i found was an obituary and some pictures. I instantly told my parents and started crying. How did it take me 10 YEARS to find this out? Sweet Red Haired Rina Bina Rest in Eternal Peace. You were taken far too soon but will never be forgotten. We had great memories on Third Street. I will never forget you! I love you. Rocky and Miss Bee will take great care of you. Miss you all!

Condolence / Cindy Boyer (none, I just hoped to share some comfort with you )

Dear Michelle & Scott,  I'm very sorry to read of the tragic loss of your precious, beloved Corrina, and I want to offer my heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. I hope that you will find some comfort in these verses and promises for the future for your sweet girl Corrina.           Acts 24:15 promises, “that there is going to be a resurrection.” Many tragic, unexpected deaths are due to what the Bible calls, "time and unforeseen occurrence that befall them all." - Ecclesiastes 9:11b

        Our loving God doesn’t cause sad things to happen to our loved ones, as James 1:13 helps us to understand, ‘When under trial, let no one say: “I am being tried by God.’ For with evil things God cannot be tried nor does he himself try anyone.’”

        2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 speaks of God as “the God of all comfort who comforts us in all our tribulation.” 1 Peter 5:7 lets us know that we can “throw all our anxiety upon (God), because he cares.” And Isaiah 65:17b tells us that the former things will not be called to mind, neither will they come up into the heart.” - Thus the heartbreak that we experience now, won’t even be remembered after Jehovah God resurrects our loved ones; thereby undoing the sad effects of death and the pain being separated from them brings.

        Revelation 21:4 promises, “And (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” - Just imagine -a world with no tears of sorrow, no pain, and no death! 


        Loved ones will be resurrected, and welcomed back to life by loving family and friends right here on the earth in the midst of peaceful, beautiful, paradise conditions, as Psalms 37:10, 11, 29 tell about, “And just a little while longer, and the wicked one will be no more; and you will certainly give attention to his place, and he will not be. But the meek ones themselves will possess the earth, and they will indeed find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace. The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.” - We can have the opportunity to live together forever in perfect peace, health, and happiness with our loved ones!

         Jesus gave us hope of a time when all suffering will end. He taught his followers to pray: “Our Father in the heavens, . . . Let your Kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also upon earth.” - Matthew 6:9, 10 - When God’s Kingdom comes, there will be no more suffering or death on the earth, just as there is no suffering or death in heaven!

         I hope that you will find comfort in your memories, perhaps by looking at pictures. And I hope that these and other verses will bring you comfort, peace, and hope. Romans 15:4 tells us, "For all the things that were written aforetime were written for our instruction, that through our endurance and through the comfort from the Scriptures we might have hope."

          And will you please look at the web site, www.jw.org as it offers much comfort that is solidly based on God’s Word the Bible, and it shares what has helped others to cope with their grief. If you decide to look at the site, when on the web site, please click on publications at the top of the page, then under magazines on the left click on ‘magazines’ and in Display box to the right where it says ‘latest‘; scroll to 2011 and click on search, and then please ‘scroll down 3 rows‘, and click on the 'PDF' format for "Coping With the Loss of a Loved One" found in the April Awake; and you’ll be able to open this magazine to read the article in its entirety. Three subjects are: "An Almost Unbearable Loss" "Coming to Terms With Death" and "Help for Those Who Grieve" This is one of the most comforting magazines that I've read and I hope you will read this article and find some comfort in what has helped others to cope with their overwhelming losses. Currently the article, "Why is there so much suffering? When will it end?" is on the main page of the web site.

          Take care,

                                                                Sincerely Yours,


                                                                 Cindy Boyer

Hi Sweetpea

I can't believe it's been six years today.  Some days it seems like yesterday we saw you last and other days it seems like an eternity.  But you left us with so many wonderful memories and so much LOVE that these things will keep us going till we are all together again...what a glorious reunion that will be!

We ate at Sonic today and guess what?  No more Chicken Club Toaster's...lame right?  We couldn't even have your favorite sandwich.

Thank you littlest little for EVERYTHING.  The laughter the silly grins the giggles the crazy eye-rolling the talks the walks in the rain the goofiness but most importantly thank you for the love.  That was one thing we all shared and could always count on...that amazing love!  We miss you Rina Jempell so much.


With all our love always and forever

Mom & Cott

Hi corrina I miss you a lot I have a poster on my wall to remember you by in my new house in Lubbock. The day that I got the phone call that you were died I just cried and cried and could not stop but I knew that you would be going somewhere safe. I know you are up there watching over me. I will always remember the good times we had in high school. I am so glad we are friends and always will be. Close

Every Moment  / Mom
No matter where I go, Or what I do, Every moment I think of you. Awaking with the morning light, Trying to fall asleep at night, Every moment I think of you. Loving you so, And missing you to, Every moment I think of you. Alone in my heart, Being apart, Every moment I think of you. Watching the rain, Crying again, Every moment I think of you. Knowing one day, Together we'll be, Every moment I think of you. Believing that you, Are watching from above, Every moment I think of you, And send you my love. I will love you and miss you every moment of every day till we're together again. I love you RinaBean always. Close

Happy Birthday Sweetheart!!  / Mom &. Cott
We miss you more than any words could ever express. But you know that. We love you more now than ever before, if thats possible. But you also know that. Is there anything we can tell you or share with you that you don't know? You always tried to tell Cott and I that you knew EVERYTHING, now we know that you do. Today you'd be 22. Our faith tells us that you're where you're supposed to be. While we want to believe that, we also NEED to believe it. But it's just so hard to think that you weren't supposed to see 22. That you wouldn't see another birthday after your 18th. We know one thing for certain, we know where you are and we know we'll see you again and spend eternity with you. For now that's what we have to look forward to, and it's what gets us through each day here without you. We love you Rina Jempell, always have, always will!! Never forget, ok? Goodnight, sleep tight, and may all the angels watch over you. At least till we get to where you are. Love, xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo Mom and Cott Close

I still remember when the phone call made its way around you were gone.  I don't think I've ever cried harder before or since.  I could hardly believe it and still can't, it seems like I should be able to run into you in Lubbock again when I least expect it.  I remember that about a month before I ran into you while you were working at Michael's.  I was out buying paint, and you kept slipping random stuff into my basket (I actually bought some of it).  You wrote your phone number on a blank shipping label and made me promise to call you.  It wasn't that I forgot, but I lost the shipping label.  The night before the funeral I was switching my stuff from one purse to another and there was your number, lost at the bottom of the old purse, the one I was carrying that day in the store.  I'm so sorry.  It's weird, because I have a really bad habit of forgetting to call people (or chickening out because I hate the phone), but the one time I really really really didn't forget...

I wish we could have been closer friends...  I will always remember what fun times and inside jokes we did have together at school.  I'll especially remember when people would ask us if we were sisters or cousins, back when I had my hair done red and curly.  I wish it had been true because you would have been a great sister to have.

My dearest Corrina, How can this be? How can three years have passed by without you? How have I lived on this earth with out seeing your beautiful face or hearing the sound of you sweet voice? I don't have the answer's, but I do know that my survival has EVERYTHING to do with you. You give me strength, and you always have, from the very moment you were born. You taught me about love, caring, sharing, and believing in the impossible. You used to tell me that you believed I could move mountains, but you were wrong my angel, you were the mountain mover. You were my sun in the morning and my stars at night. You made me live, laugh, cry, sing, dance, and smile, oh how you could make me smile. I'm thankful baby girl, so very thankful for everything you gave to me, and I'm blessed to have the spiritual connection we share, but I miss you...the you I could watch a movie with, sing a silly song with, hold hands with, laugh out loud with, share things with. I WILL ALWAYS MISS YOU!! You made my life and my heart full, and you gave me more than I ever gave you. I am honored to be your mom, and I was the most blessed woman on this earth to have you for my daughter. It's been 1096 days without you. Sometime's it seems like just yesterday I last saw you, and other times it seems like FOREVER. Cott and I get lost along our way everyday. That's the only way to describe us now...lost without the most important part of us, you. Once upon a time...there was you! And someday, once again, there will be an "US". I can't wait. I love you Rina, forever and for always. All my love, Mom Close

The moment that you died, my heart split in two. One side filled with memories. The other died with you. I often lay awake at night, when the world is fast asleep. And take a walk down memory lane, with tears upon my cheeks, Remembering you is easy, I do it every day. But missing you is a heartache, that never goes away. I hold you tightly within my heart, and there you will remain. Life has gone on without you, But never will be the same. Author Unknown Close

I can not believe what I am seeing, today 04/01/08.  I had lost touch.  Our whole family thinks of you often and right now my heart is just aching.   Oh, Michelle, I wish I could hug you.  I just can not imagine losing a child.  Our family has so many fond, fun memories of Camping, halloween and sitting by the fire.  I pray you are doing well.  Close

Corrina... / Jordy Williams (Friend)
It's really a fluke that I found this site again, after at least a year since I've been on it. I never posted anything, but I realized today that I'm still not past this...past you. I found out that Joey Cobb died today. Another car accident. And everything I felt about you came running back, and in a way, my feelings about you eclipsed my feelings for him, because I knew you so much better.

I turned 20 yesterday. I've gone through a year of college, and I'm on my second. I'm an English/Theatre major, which you probably saw coming before I did. None of this really seems to matter. I hate that you're not here. I hate that you didn't see 20. Or finish your first year of college. I can't hate God for this. But I do question Him, often. I think He can handle that. After all, He's got you now, right?

Corrina...I don't really believe that you know I'm writing these things. I don't think that, because I don't think people in Heaven are aware of what happens here. Because it doesn't seem like it could be that heavenly if you had to know all of the shit that happens to the rest of us, right? But I trust that one day I'll get to say these things to you.

I love you, Corrina. You were my friend. And I'm doing my best to live the way I think you'd like me to. I'm trying. I swear I am. Close

Rina, Today it has been 730 days without seeing your beautiful face, or hearing your sweet voice. Some days it only seems like yesterday, and other days, it seems like it's been 100 years. I guess that's the difference between the good days and the bad ones. I always wake up praying for a "good day", one when I can clearly remember the sound of your voice, the smell of your perfume, the touch of your hand, and your beautiful smile. I try to remind myself that I was blessed with you in my life for 6826 days, but I'm afraid that the time will come when I'll be without you longer than you were here with me, and that makes me so sad. But as I sit here looking at your picture I can almost hear you saying "Mom, you need to practice what you preached". So I remember the many times after your Dad, Grampy and Gooma passed away that you would ask me about death and dying. You wanted me to promise you that I would never leave you. I told you that all I could do was promise you that I'd only go when God called me home, but that I would never, ever truly leave you. How could a mother and daughter who are so close ever truly be apart? How could two souls, so irrevocably entwined, ever be separated? I told you that I would always be with you, in your mind, and in your heart, and forever imprinted on your soul. So, Sweetpea, in honor of your second angel anniversary, I promise you from this day forward to "practice what I preached". I will remember these things... That you could never, ever truly leave me. How could a daughter and a mother who are so close ever truly be apart? How could two souls, so irrevocably entwined, ever be separated? You will always be with me, in my mind, and in my heart, and forever imprinted on my soul. I thank God everyday for blessing me with you and your love. I was blessed, overjoyed, and honored to be your mom. I have always believed that our souls choose who to be born to, so I thank you, my precious one, for choosing me to be your mom. You gave me the greatest, and most precious gift imaginable. You are my beautiful Corrina, my sweetpea, my angel, my sweet baby girl, my silly CocoRina, my best friend, my world, my life, my heart, the absolute love of my life....my Rina, and I will LOVE, LOVE, LOVE you forever and always. I won't have to miss you anymore though, because after all, you are always with me, in my mind, and in my heart, and forever imprinted on my soul. I love you RinaBean! xoxoxo Mom Close

Oh how we wish you were here. Today you would be 20. What would today have been like for you and for us? I know we would have gone to "El Chico" for dinner...or "Sonic"...LOL! There would have been presents, and Grandma & Grandpa too. There would have been calls from Aunt Lee, Aunt Kathy, Aunt Nancy and Uncle Glen. I know you continue to be with us, I just wish we could see you, and hold you, and kiss you.

Oh baby girl, never forget how much you are loved and missed. Our hearts hold you every single second of every single day, and our love will get us through till we're all together again.

WE LOVE YOU RINA JEMPELL!

Always & forever with all our love,

Thanksgiving In Heaven  / Donna Gramlich (Mother of Another Angel {Matthew} )
When you woke up this morning
And washed your sleepy face,
Did you think to pause a minute or two
And thank God for His grace?
Or when you stepped outside today
And you saw that big blue sky,
And that shinin' sun that smiles on you
Like the Lord was sayin' "Hi"...
Did you stop to pray and thank the Lord
For the good He sends your way,
For His matchless love and His endless grace
That He pours out every day?
How would you rate at the Pearly Gate
If God said, "Don't you know...
You've as many days as you filled with praise
When you walked down there below!"
Would you get to spend just a short weekend
Or a half a dozen worth,
If He let you stay for each single day
That you thanked Him while on earth?
While it sure is great that we celebrate
What we call Thanksgiving Day,
And it's fun to see all the family
And to watch the children play...
Still, it just seems odd that we thank our God
Only when Thanksgiving's here,
For it seems to me giving thanks should be
Every day throughout the year!

God Bless,
Donna & Ron
