As many of you may know, we lost a very amazing person way too soon. Haley Begley was one of the most happy, up-beat, outgoing, and smiley people that you could have ever known. What happened was terribly tragic and it has been extremely hard for many of us to cope with, but the way that our community has come together in order to keep each other strong throughout these terribly hard times amazes me and brings the warmest feeling to my heart.

A lot of people have pitched in on a Go Fund Me charity that was made in order to help Haley’s mother, Carrie Cassidy, with the expenses, but that’s not all. We have decided to also take action here at Lewis Cass. Mrs. Rush came up with the idea to make and sell bracelets with Haley’s name on them and I was lucky enough to sell them. The bracelets are $2 for a beaded one and $3 for a threaded one. They are nothing fancy, but they really don’t need to be. In my opinion, they are super cute and also such a great way to remember such a great person. Bracelet or not, Haley will always be with us, but it is always nice to have a little reminder that she is in fact here.

Now, I’m sure that you are probably wondering where the proceeds are going to and I am beyond excited to be able to announce that the proceeds will be used to set up a memorial for Haley in our school and any extra money that is donated will go to Carrie for anymore possible expenses that she may have. I am beyond excited and utterly amazed with all of what is going on and all of our abilities to stay strong through this and continue to help each other out through this incredibly tough time.

This has all been very hard for all of us and the best way that we could possibly handle it is the way that we are right now: With love and compassion, and the ability to have open arms for anyone who needs them. Also, the ability to know that they have open arms for you as well.

    This is a very good article Lanie! I know you and Haley were very close and I am so sorry. She was a friend to all here at Cass and I know I will miss her very much too.

    This is a wonderful article! I will have to get one since they will be selling one more time. I am also impressed with how the community has been recently and I am very proud of us, but I wish something awful didn’t happen to have us act this way. Nicely written Lanie!

    This was a good article. If you guys were close, I am very sorry. I’m sure she was an amazing person. I like how the community is supporting her. I wish this wouldn’t have happened. She will always be remembered here at Cass.

    Great article! Selling bracelets is a very good idea for people to remember Haley. The memorial is such a good idea. Personally I didn’t know her, but the memorial will remind people to be happy and make a positive impact on others.

    This is a very good article! It’s amazing how our community is coming together and helping each other out.

    This is a great article. Its sad that it take a tragic event to get people to come together, but honestly I think that this whole situation has made everyone closer and taught us not to take anyone for granted. This is a good example not to take anyone for granted in your life because you never know when your last day will come.

    Lanie, this is one really good article, It was really sad when I saw the text that Haley passed. She was a very sweet girl and Liked when we could buy bracelets with Haley’s name on it. It was one way to remember Haley. I feel like i still have a little piece of Haley with me.

    I loved this article. It is very important that a community can come together and support each other in such a terrible time. I got a bracelet and I bring everywhere I go. Although I didn’t know her, I’ve heard a lot of stories about and she sounded like a lovable, happy girl.
