Guest Book
I know it's been a few years since Bolts passed. I know that writing in an online memorial guest book won't exactly do much for anyone but I just want everyone to know that when I look back at my younger years at camp, one of the first things that pop up in my head are the memories I had with Naydine when she was once my cabin buddy. Of course, I didn't know her as Naydine, but I kew her as Bolts, a fun loving young woman who liked to laugh .

I guess I just wanted keep her memory alive even though it's been a while. She will be missed.

Nadyne, my precious beloved daughter. I miss you so much and think about you everyday. The only thing that keeps me going each day is the knowledge of you being there along side me. You are the angel in my life and in the lives of all of us. We all miss you and love you so much. I live for the day that we will meet again, I hope that I will be worthy to be where you are.
With all my love,
Your Mother

Hey sister friend. I'm sorry I'm so late signing this. I just woke up today thinking about you. I was remembering camp, and that night I got all my hair cut off. I remember you told me I was finally the real me. We weren't particularly close, but you made me feel seen and loved. I think you did that to everyone who knew you. I wanted to tell you that today. Traveling mercies, sister.

Still think about you all the time. You were one of the best people to confide in. You definitely cast a big shadow after you left. I felt like one of my closest allies was lost. No one quite compares, and no one quite fills the void. I'm doing things in my life right now that I would love to share with you and hear your feedback. I miss planning big trips together and still regret that not happening. One day I'll go to South America in your name! Your departure left a permanent reminder for me to do what I was meant to do - to find my passion and happily pursue it regardless of expectations and norms. Strive to be extra ordinary, but not taking it TOO seriously and treating others with affection. Making time to find humor in my daily tussles. Speak to me always and I am forever here to respond.

Boltsy Boltsy Boltsy,
I know you're lookin down on me right now wondering why I'm being so weaksauce. If you were here you'd be poking or jabbing at me trying to make me annoyed. And then I'd say something that would offend you. Then two seconds later we'd be best friends again.
I miss you so much dude. Its been a little over four months but it seems forever. You've seen from up there how deep I've buried this pain of losing one of my dearest friends. Please put in a good word with the big man upstairs as I try to come to peace with no longer having a Boltsy-Poo in my life. I know how you truly are in a greater place. Please be with me as I now transition from mourning to celebrating the utterly beautiful life that you lived.
As earth got a little dimmer with your departure heaven got that much brighter. Knowing you're in heaven makes it hard to wish you were back here. I know you're up there anticipating seeing us again just as bad as we are down here to see you.
Help me remember every memory we shared to help dig up this pain. The laugh, the smile, the face making, all of camp... everything. You are an amazing soul. You will never be forgotten. I can only hope to live with the same light as you did.

Love ya Boltsy Poo.

ps. SF Giants are gonna need some help this year. I'm counting on some divine intervention from you. :)

I loved Boltz, she was one of my favorite counselors. She would always be a big part of the night games. I also remember when she led my Uzimati capture the flag group. I loved when she showed us the creatures in the nature center. I will always remember Nadyne(Boltz).

Nadyne's family,

I pray that Gods peace Is with you during this tragic and unexplainablely painful time. Nadyne was such a joy and a precious soul which was a direct reflection of her relationship with Christ. I will never forget Nadyne or seeing her everyday my freshman yr down a few rooms from me. I will never forget her funny and sweet personality and her hugs. She was truly a caring passionate and loving person. Her legacy and her visions for the world in which she loved will never be forgotten she will continue to touch all of our lives and every persons life she came in contact with and those that she planted Christs love and hope into. I will miss my friend but I look forward to hugging her and worrshipping with her in heaven one day.
Love you Nadyne.

My prayers are continually with your family at this time, there are no words for this loss of your daughter but all we have is the faith in knowing we will see her again:)

Nadyne, Thank you for being a friend and inspiration. Although I only knew you for 2 years you had a huge impact on my life. Your adventurous spirt, contagious smile, joy, and love of God were what I always admired about you. I hope to embrace all of those qualities as I continue on in this life. I'm so glad to have had the pleasure to share the good news about getting into APU with you first and the fact that we were in Spain when I got the news and shared it with you made it even more awesome. What a small world we live in. I'm incredibly blessed to have known you. You lived an amazing life and touched so many people. You will be missed but never forgotten Nadyne. <3

In Loving Memory of Nadyne

She was an Angel true to life…
Her wit, her charm, her beautiful smile
Her life was a journey which took us down many roads…
But the ones that stay and imprint our hearts
Are the ones we keep close and safe within
Though she may not be here… she is everywhere,
In our thoughts and in our my hearts.
Remembering the life of someone so dear
She will be remembered…
Someone so special… can never be forgotten.

We are truly saddened for your loss and send our our deepest condolences to the Qirreh Family.

Much love,

Hey there Boltsy. Thank you so much for being you and showing me how much you love God and how much you love people. In your memorial service it was said that when you were talking to someone you made them feel like they were the only person in the world. I truly got to experience that this summer, the ridiculous things we did from rattlesnake hunting to the trips up to glass rock and all the adventures we had. You really lived out our guest group week's title, "Can't be tamed". I'm so glad that the time I had to know you was blessed with so much laughter and smiles. I hope that I can do my best to embody your love in the days that I have here.
Love you and miss you soooo much,

To Nadyne's Family,
I would like you to know that your daughter and sister was such a blessing in my life. I only knew her this summer while working at Emerald Cove Camp with her, but she made such a huge impact on my life during that short time. She poured herself out into the lives of the campers and staff that surrounded her. Nadyne played a large role in making this last summer one of the most powerful times of my life. She lived out Christ's love everyday. And she was such a joy to be around, we shared quite a few adventures together this summer and was the source of many laughs for me. You are all in my prayers. Thank you so much.

I miss you already. You played a wonderful role in my life. I appreciate all the times you called me a baby and made fun of me, it was always called for. We had such excellent times, some of the best in my life. Its been about a month since we last talked. So happy we got to express how happy we were for each other before you had to go. Thanks for everything. Miss you tons. Thanks for the contagious smile, it will never be forgot.

I think about the next time I will see you & I get really excited. Screams, laughter, running, hugs, kisses, and squeels. You are irreplaceable and the most wonderful gift to all that the Lord enabled you to encounter. You changed m...y life and made me a stronger, bolder lover of Jesus. You helped teach me to love myself better and to live each day to the fullest. Never to settle, but seek the next adventure of your faith. You can't possibly be gone, never would the Lord do such a thing to me. This is but temporary and I praise God for you. I cannot be more thankful for the Lord calling you his precious daughter and choosing you to become my sister in Him. I love you more than words will ever be able to say and I have become more excited about Heaven because you will be there waiting for me. Miss you darling girl.

Nadyne, I'm sorry we we lost touch over the years. Although we weren't close, you still made a positive impact on my life. I was so sad on Tuesday when I found out this tragic news and haven't been able to stop thinking of you since. When I met you, I could immediately see that you were genuine, loving, fun and all around awesome to be around! I remember going to the Winter Ball with you, Will, Jesikah, James, Mark, Bud and Gabby. I remember dancing so much and laughing so hard all night. I'll never forget that night! Seeing the way that you have lived your life has inspired me to live mine differently. I feel blessed to have known you. <3

I am so very sad for you. But I have also been so very inspired by all I read about Nadyne. She has touched so many lives in her powerful short life and will remain an inspiration. Grateful she was with us for Rach & Noah's wedding. I'm praying for you.

You are still running through my mind for the larger part of each day. There have been so many things that I see everyday that are reminding me of you. It's weird, because it is the little things that remind me of you the most, like yesterday I saw someone with nosering, and I immediately thought of you out of everyone else I know with noserings.
I am still having a hard time with this emotionally, but I just have to remember that as much as we would all love to see you again, you are in the presence of the One for whom and by whom all things came into being! With that in mind, there is no way I could ever wish for you to be back here. I am so glad that you get to be with The Great Creator right now, and that you get to know what it's like to be free of everything. I miss you and love you.

Nadyne I am sorry we didn't have more time together but the times we did share were priceless and unforgettable. From hangouts at wills to sleepovers at my apartment and nfg shows... I'll cherish them always and keep them close to my heart. You are one of the most beautiful people I have ever met both inside and out and your heart of gold has touched so many. I love you always. <3 mandy

It was such a privilege getting to live with you this summer. You constantly cheered me up with your humor and depth. thank you for helping others so well and helping me be more comfortable with myself. I love you and miss you.
to Bolts family,you are in my heart and prayers, I didn't get to know Nadyne as well as some people at camp or high sierra did, but it meant so much to me to know her and be around her this summer.

Nadyne was one of the first people I met when I came to Valley Church in 2005 as the new youth pastor. Although you try to hide your insecurities in those kinds of transitions, I had my share of them - wondering how I would be received by the students, etc. Nadyne, together with some other amazing students in that senior class, made me feel welcomed, appreciated and supported. I will never forget the looks she would give me whenever I said something crazy, gross or stupid during one of my talks. I remember a series I taught on sex, love and dating - and how every time I said the word "sex" she would wrinkle her nose and mumble "eeeewww!" Then she would tell me how many times I said the word in that particular lesson! At least someone was listening intently! Having her on mission trips, camps, etc. as a student - and later as a leader when she was home on break from school - was such a blessing from God. Few people are as cool as Nadyne - the way she loved Jesus and everybody else. I know I speak on behalf of many when I say I will miss her smile, laughter, humor, personality and grace as a sister in Christ. To her parents and siblings...your loss is too great for words. So I will simply pray for you and promise to be here for you as often as you need me. Don't ever hesitate to ask if there is anything I or Valley Church can do to somehow bear a burden with you....

Nadyne, Boltsy, I've been thinking about you all week. In the short three months I was privileged enough to spend with you, I didn't get to know you nearly as I'd have liked to. But what stands out about you most in my memory is your smile. Partly mischievous and always genuine, I recall the twinkle in your eye as you Lauged with those around you. You have been a treasure in this world, and I cannot WAIT to see you in the next. I won't even be able to regret not knowing you now, because I am so looking forward to seeing you again in heaven. Love you Nadyne.

Nadyne and I shared the incredible experience of studying abroad together. We first bonded in the Madrid airport over the fact that the airline had lost our luggage. She was a great sport about it and we laughed as she wore the sweatpants and slippers she traveled in out on the streets of Spain’s capital. Her positive outlook, spirit of adventure and “get it done” attitude made her a great traveling partner but it was her open mind, listening ears and compassionate heart that made her a great friend. My memories of her are exceptionally fond and she will always hold an extraordinarily special place in my heart.

It breaks my heart to see a young life lost, but I like how there's this community of friends and family banding together to celebrate Nadyne's life. I never knew Nadyne, but I am friends with someone that is hurting from this loss. I just wanted to take the moment to send love to you all. Losing a friend/family member is never easy. Keep her flame lit with the great memories you all have of her.

My heart just goes out to Nadyne's dear family. I did not know Nadyne, and although my daughter was a camper at YSSC this past summer, she doesn’t think that she knew Nadyne either. But I am a mother, a sister, and a daughter who lost my own brother to an untimely death just last year. Therefore, I understand the pain of losing a family member. May Nadyne's family along with her family of friends and relatives be comforted by her memory, and know that people who never even knew Nadyne,like me,are praying for them during this most challenging time. I am so deeply sorry for your loss, and you will all remain in my thoughts and prayers.

Thanks for the good times last summer at camp. I didn't have to know you for very long to know how much you were worth knowing.
The time I got to spend with you meant a lot to me.
Going to miss you.

How often is it that you remember vividly the first time you meet someone? I will never forget the first time I ever met you. it was the day of the mexico mission trip Jeremy's team. You were the first one sitting in the back of the van when I got on and I thought who is this little Rocker girl (you kinda dressed like a rocker at this time) you had beautiful green eyes and you were so bubbly, friendly and eagar to do the Lords work. I was a senior in high school at the time, you were only a freshman and I remember how I wished i was as outgoing and personable like you were at that age. Working with you in the church was always a fun experience and then being able to lead your sister in youth group was amazing. She would always say things like "oh thats just my sister nadyne." and would laugh and kinda roll her eyes at silly things you would do to her. It was always so cute cause when you both were in high school I could see how much she looked up to you.

Emily--- I am so sorry to hear of your loss I just want to give you the biggest hug. Your always be one of "my girls" no matter how old you get. If you need anything just let me know I'll always be here for you no matter what age.

May God give the Qirreh family peace....

Precious Friend, I will take this pain because it means I had the privilege of knowing you. Our times together this last year will stay with me--the tears, the love, the confidences, the endless laughter. You put me on the floor with your humor, I laughed until I cried. You were the most honest, genuine person I've ever met. So much love and life in one little body. Your love for people and God will eternally impact my life. I love you, I love you, I will forever remember and love you. My heart is shattered, but my spirit waits for the day we'll see each other again in heaven. I can't wait to hug you again as hard as I can.

Nadyne Thank you so much for all that you have shared with me.I remember the wonderful smile that you had on no matter what you were doing or where you were.I wrote a little something for you because you inspired me to be so much more than I thought I could be as a woman of God.First is one of my favorite quotes, " Sometimes the smallest of things are the things that take up the most room in our hearts."
We aren't made to questions his decisions,
we are not always made to know every answer.
We are told to say please and thank you...
But have you ever realized how hard it is to say? We ask why her, why now? He replies
It is my time and I know what is best...
We say well that just isn't fair! He says,
I know your hurting but I'm right here holding you close.
I just remember that he Made such a wonderful woman, who now gets to spend eternity with him and she is saying,
It's ok to cry. It's ok to be sad, but I am still right here, I am walking with you each day that you feel low. She is there praising God when we admit that we are struggling and it seems impossible to be thankful.
God looks at us all and he just smiles saying, I know you cared for one of my own my very special child Nadyne, but fear not she is with me finally a place called home.
Nadyne inspired me Fall of 2010 when she was my small group leader. Always pushing me to be the best I could be and to instead of trying to fight and argue just to stop and Listen to what God has to say.
We must have faith that God always knows what is Best for his Children <3

Nadyne. You confronted me at a grad party because you had heard that I was working at camp this summer in the same department as yourself. From the beginning you showed me kindness and a love that is so rare nowadays. You always smiled and made every moment count. The only thing I can do is to promise to do the same while showing love and care for others whenever I get the chance. We never know when our time will come. Love you Nadyne

Being at a loss of words for this guest book is something that I've become accustomed to these past couple days. The impact that Nadyne had on my life is still, somehow, without words because simply, no combination of syllables is suitable. All I can say is that her love has changed the way I live.
