  14. Anthony, Kim and Parker Pacifico

    My son considered Alivia a friend. They often sat together at the same lunch table and spent much of that time laughing.

    I saw Alivia every day in the MS Cafeteria and in just those short times, I knew she was wonderful…sarcastic, quick witted, and so observant. I told her I thought humor was a big sign of intelligence and she often made my day. I looked forward to the all-too-brief conversations and will miss her sparkling eyes and mischievous smile.

    The world lost some laughter this week. We are heartbroken for your family. Peace. -Kim

    My deepest condolences to your whole family. I loved letting Alivia leave the computer lab at Longfellow to go give you a big hug in the hallway. She always had a big smile on her face when she saw you. I will always remember her that way. Smiling and skipping back down the hall. She was a good girl, and I told you that so many times. She truly was. But you know that. Again, I am truly sorry for the loss of Alivia. May she rest in peace.

    Precious Alivia,

    Your story has reached Australia. I think it needs to be told in every primary and high school all over the world. Bullying is at an all time high, and it is NOT ok. Alivia, you did not deserve ANYTHING that was said or done to you.

    Rest In Peace, you beautiful angel.

    Dan, Deann and Danny,

    I’m so incredibly sorry for the unfathomable loss of your beautiful Alivia. I’m sending you so much love, so many thoughts, prayers and cuddles from Australia. Thank you so very much for sharing your story.

    Deann, you did everything you could to help your beautiful daughter. Please do not think that any of this is your fault. You were her biggest champion.
