"I didn't know your son, which is my loss. In the days and weeks that follow, you will have a new and unwanted "normal". God's love and your faith will be the only thing to hold on to. Even more important to you when you ask "Why?", and you will. Remember that God is sovereign and no matter what, Romans 8:26-31 is true even if it takes time for you to see it. You can get angry with Him, too, He'll still love you. He wants to comfort you, just ask. I'm praying that you have the peace that passes understanding. Blessings to you all."
- Linda Tewalt
"Words can never express our sympathy for your loss. We just want you to know we will always remember Quinn and the light he brought us.

God bless all of you and know that we love you very, very much.

"To the Hoover family -I just wanted to express my condolences in the loss of your son and brother. I didn't know Quinn, but my son, Austyn, played soccer with Quinn during Quinn's freshman year, my son was a sophomore. From all that I have read, Quinn was quite a young man and I know you must be so very proud to call him your son. What a gift he gave in being an organ donor, to understand that importance at the young age of 17 is quite impressive! May you feel the loving arms of God wrapped around you and the love and support of your family and friends. Know that many, many strangers (such as myself) are grieving for you and praying for you.

My little friend who visited me frequently in the health office of Maugansville Elementary. You guys have been in my thoughts and prayers this week and will be for a long time. Our children are our hearts and it seems that with every milestone they take we have to let go more and more. Heaven is the big one and though it comes too early for us it is amazing to our children. Our little angels are forever God's angels. He came to be a very special young man and you can be proud that he accomplished so much in his short life. And proud that he continues to be awesome through those he saved. He gave the gift that keeps giving forever and ever. God bless you guys. Vickie Hanshew and Family"

"I was fortunate to have taught Quinn in Physical Education for 3 years @ CSMS. As a teacher we love our students,but there are those students that touch us in a special way. Quinn touched my heart with his unending enthusiasm for life and the respect for those around him. He was a special young man who left this life way too soon! How lucky I am to have had the opportunity to know him ! Of this I am certain he has his wings and will now be a guardian angel to look after those of us left behind. His unending gift of life lives on in the lives he has saved through his generosity. May God comfort your family!"

I'd like to offer condolences to Quinns family. You continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. I cannot imagine experiencing the loss of a child but after losing my mom early in life I have empathy for those who suffer that kind of loss. Quinn was a very special young man and will be missed by many. He possessed a wisdom beyond his years and lived his life for the Lord. May God embrace his family left behind and give comfort. Quinn is already dancing with the angels :)"

"A human being takes such small space on Earth
Less than a tree in the forest
But such great gap he leaves behind
Nothing in the whole world can fill that gap
Man’s heart is such a small thing on Earth
Not bigger than a bird
Still it holds everything
It leaves endless empty spaces larger than the world
Quinn leaves forests of empty space and silence behind
Let him rest in peace
And enjoy the walk beyond the rainbow
Our sincere and deepest condolences
Our thoughts are with you all
The Albinsson family, City of Gothenburg, Sweden"
