Although I did not know Casey, I was saddened to hear of this remarkable young man’s passing. I just wanted his family to know that there are people in the Ohio Valley praying that God will comfort them at this difficult time.

Although I only started to get to know Casey a few months ago,the times we had together will never be forgotten. He could always make you smile and laugh no matter what kind of time you were going through. We did some crazy things together.I would do anything to have another crazy time with him.

Amy and family, My daughter, Wendy Fordyce, worked with you at WJU. I am so very sorry. There are not any words to describe the pain you are experiencing and will experience for the rest of your life. I know because I lost my only son this past new years day by a sudden & tragic accident also. I want you to know that you and your family are in the prayers of many loving and caring people. In the days ahead if you want to be in touch with others that have experienced a loss such as yours please feel free to contact me or Wendy. Again, I am so sorry. May God comfort you and give you the strength to be strong.

Amy, Bob, & Nick,

Casey was a wonderful friend, If you were down he would do anything to make you smile, he was always playing pranks or just joking around all together, the lake isn’t going to be the same without him there, It is a bad thing to have happened to such a smart and loving person, He always did his best to think of other people first and that is what made him such a great person, He was very talanted when it came to music, and his love for music was great, I just want you to know that everyone from the lake is sorry about what has happened to your family, your family and Casey will remain in our prayers.

Sincerely,

Charlotte

Birthday parties, playing video games, and riding bikes could easily describe the activities Casey and I had partaken in. Whether we want or can believe it, this was his time to be called back to the place where all of us strive to reach at some point in our lives. It just so happens that he has reached the Gate before we have. And for that we must be delighted. I am deeply saddened and hurt, but in no way am I angered. I am pleased that I was able to be friends with an angel for the time he was allowed to walk upon this earth.

Bob & Family,

I am very sorry to hear about the accident. I have lost so many people that I have been really close to…I know how bad it hurts. The only thing that you can take comfort in, is knowing that you will all be reunited with him someday. Until then, you must be strong for each other. Some days might seem impossible to make it through, but there are brighter days ahead. Hang in there! May God be with you!

Bob and Amy,

I am so sorry. I don’t know how

anyone can feel after a loss of a child. Casey was such a polite young man and I loved hearing him

play his music. It reminded me of

when Taria was in the band at Park.

I can still remember when DJ used

to love to come to your house and

read Nick to sleep and play with Casey. I know he was older, but he

just loved your boys, as we all do.

Time just goes so fast. Just love

each other and cherish every day

and remember, God takes care of his

children, as he does all of us.

If you need anything at all or just

need to talk, please let us know.

Please take comfort knowing that this a short journey through life we all must make, but soon enough we will be reunited with loved ones for eternity.

Casey is now with the angels in heaven and he is the guardian angel for your family.

God bless your entire family and give you the strength at this time of sorrow.

BOB, AMY, AND FAMILY:

I JUST RECENTLY HEARD OF THE LOSS OF YOUR SON, CASEY. I AM SORRY. THIS IS SO TRAGIC. I ONLY WISH THAT I COULD HAVE OFFERED MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY IN PERSON. NO ONE CAN EVER PREPARE FOR SUCH A TRAGIC, UNEXPECTED LOSS. I CANNOT EVEN BEGIN TO IMAGINE THE PAIN YOU MUST BE FEELING.

I HAVE NEVER MET CASEY BUT HEAR FROM MANY THAT HE WAS A REMARKABLE AND TRULY GIFTED INDIVIDUAL. CASEY’S MEMORY WILL LIVE ON FOREVER IN THE MINDS OF HIS MANY FRIENDS AND FAMILY, AS WELL AS PEOPLE, INCLUDING MYSELF, WHO HAVE NEVER MET HIM.

HOPEFULLY THIS WILL BE A REMINDER TO ALL TO LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST, ENJOY EACH DAY WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY, AND APPRECIATE EVERYTHING. IT IS SO SAD THAT IT TAKES S0METHING LIKE THIS TO MAKE MOST PEOPLE REALIZE JUST HOW PRECIOUS LIFE IS.

MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU TO SOMEHOW GET THROUGH THIS TRAGIC, UNEXPLAINABLE TIME.

May memories comfort you, and may it help to know that many share your sorrow and stand with you in your time of need.

Thinking of you,

Casey always said hi to me every time I saw him in the hallway. There were times when I was a little upset about something and he would come up to me and tell me a joke or something. Also, whenever we were hanging out in the music department together, he would always play a note on the piano and have me tell him what note it was. It never got old for him. It will be hard sitting in the band room before 1st period next year without him there. He’ll truly be missed.

Brandi

Casey baby… I love you more then life itself. Oh God, how I would do anything just for you to hug me again. You are the greatest friend I have ever had. You taught me so much, and the thought of going on without you is unbearable. I love you. I love you I love you I love you! I miss you, I want you back.

Laura Mae Dumas

Casey has been one of my closest friends for the past 9 years. We played cards and were in so many music groups together. He and I had so much dirt on one another, but we always knew where our limits were. I was having a bad day towards the end of my junior year. It was theory project day, and I just wasn’t myself. He found me crying in a practice booth and told me to stop… that it wouldn’t help anything, and that I never cry. He helped me that day, and I’ll always remember what he did and has done for me. I’ll never forget Casey. Whenever I play music or sit at a game of cards I’ll always feel as though he’s with me. And I’ll always think of Mr. and Mrs. Miller as my second parents. I love you both so much.

Casey was a friend/classmate of our son Jason and he thought a lot of Casey. We just wanted to let you know that our thoughts and prayers are with your family. We pray that God will give your family the peace that passes all understanding. God truly has from what Jason has told us an angel sitting beside him.

Casey was an amazing person. He had the ability to make anyone laugh and have a good time while still possessing the qualities of a good listener. He was overwhelmingly dedicated to making everyone smile and to his music. Casey will be sadly missed by all who knew him.

Casey was an awesome guy, and I will miss him so much. I never got to hang out with him outside of school, but the times inside, where a blast. He and I always used to make fun of each other cause of our longer hair styles. I would always ask him to take of his, “Helmet” because there where no hats allowed in school. That always got him…. We doubled my shophomore homecomming. Where he bugged me so much, when he said he was hot I rtolled his window down, and he put his head out like a dog. So, I rolled it up on his head….. He was always the jokester. I will truly miss him.

Casey–So young you were, it really does break my heart. A July day, the sky was gray when you made so many fall apart. We know you didn’t mean it, God wanted you to go, but so many miss you. I really hope you know. I didn’t know you well, but I’ve seen your good friends cry. It’s really sad to think about how all good things will die. Memroies will live on in a loved ones mind, just one thing that makes comfort easier to find. Your soul will be found locked tightly in one’s heart, helping to ease the pain of knowing we’re so far apart. We all realize some day we’ll see you once again and things will be just fine, but until that day I must say good-bye dear friend of mine.

Casey,

I still cannot believe you’re gone…all the times I spent with you in band or otherwise, or the antics of yours that I watched from afar have just playing over and over again inside my head since the day I heard of your passing. Your passing from the realm of the living will be nearly unbearable for all who have known you, and I offer my most heartfelt sympathy for all who are grieving as I am. It is with a heavy heart that I must say goodbye, but I know I will see you again someday.

P.S.

Try not to do anything too crazy without me. I love you man.

Casey, baby, the hole in my heart is still there as I write this on Labor Day, September 1, 2003. Nearly two months have gone by since you passed away from this place we call home to your real home with Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Although the hole is there, and it probably will never be gone entirely, I am trying to fill it with remembering my blessings, and thanking God for them each day. You were, and continue to be, one of those many blessings, one of the most important blessings I have ever received.

I will like you forever, I will love you for always. Forever and ever my baby you’ll be.

And I will know in my heart that I shall see you again and we will dance, sing, hug, laugh, love and praise together, but the beautiful thing is, we will never cry together again.

Casey, I cannot possibly type everything i would like to say to you. I think about you everyday and I cant wait until we can all be together again. You taught me so much–from how to use my computer mic to playing poker, to riding a shift fourwheeler to being a good friend. THANK YOU! You were always there for me, just as you were to all your family and friends. We all miss you.

God Casey, it’s so unreal that you’re not with us anymore… If I would have known that being in Canaan with you and Brandi would have been the last time I would get to spend “real” time with you, I would have never thrown our game of “Risk” across the table, and I would have played 100 more times even thuogh it took 4 hours to play!! I would have gladly helped you, my dad and Travis push the toe truck up Spruce Knob instead of sitting in the car with Brandi staying nice and toasty : well… maybe not.. but I wouldn’t have laughed at you guys as you did it!!. Thanks for the great time there, I now cherish every minute of it.. I was so lucky to have gotten to know you and be you’re friend… Please watch over us.. Someday we’ll all be together again..

Ohh Yeah.. and Laura, Brandi and I.. didn’t leave the sign on you’re front porch :

Love ya babe..

I am sorry that I didn’t get to know Casey well. I remember him from Woodsdale and Triadelphia when I was younger. From what I know, he was a great person with a smile always on his face who cared. My dad was working at the hospital on the 4th, and when he came home and told me the tragic news, I knew that everybody who was touched by him in some way would never be the same. To all of Casey’s family–my condolences, heart and prayers will be with you always. To Mr. and Mrs. Miller–you two were blessed with a truly special son. Wheeling has lost a young soul, but Heaven has just gained an angel. O:-
