Condolences left for Miranda Bell:

    To Miranda's Family, I send my deepest, heartfelt condolences. We went to high school and did a lot of singing together in Branson. She is one of a kind. I am praying for peace and comfort that only God can provide for you all. I know that Mandy's true and amazing inner beauty will live on in those three amazing little boys. God bless you all.

    Miranda, you are a person I will never forget. We had are great times and not so great times but you are always close to my heart! Thinking about our time together I remember our times with Kelsey but most of all I remember getting lost behind your apartment in the snow! We ended up in Stone Bridge. You were always ready to make others laugh. I know you are in a better place!
