This was written by Rhiannon's friend, Jeanine

Whether she was making up dances to do out at the club, installing the speakers, amps and CD player to create a booming stereo system in one of her cars, or spending a beautiful day riding through the mountains, her passion for life always showed through.

When she set off to school, the effort she put into it was unyielding and it had definitely paid off.

Rhiannon was the type of girl who showed little or no fear and never hesitated to speak her mind. She always strove to be on top and pushed everyone else around her to do the same. She put her heart and soul into everything she did.

More than anything, she put her all into her friendships. She always gave of herself without expecting much in return. She touched the hearts and lives of whoever she came into contact with. She was a carefree, fun-loving girl who was always willing to take a chance because she felt it was necessary to live life to the fullest.

She had once said, "The only limits are in your head." And the way she lived her life proved just that. She knew she could do anything she wanted to do - and so could everyone else as long as they pushed the limits.

No one wants to believe that it was her time to go, but God knew that it was. I think God felt the she was the strong one that could help watch over us and help us through life's obstacles. That's how she was when she was here with us. She always tried to be the cushion to catch us when life brought us to our knees. She always stuck by a friend, even when it seemed like the rest of the world was against us. God had a plan for her. We may have lost our beloved girl, but Heaven has gained an angel. She will spread her wings and fly around the world to watch us wherever we may go - and of course she will live forever in our hearts.
