Very good post! That was very moving. I, too am only a year or two older than Tawni was, and I think that's a major reason why her case became so personal to me. Everytime I thought about Tawni, I imagined what her life was probably like prior to that fateful day. That she was probably just a regular teenager like me, who liked the same music and hated school (lol, maybe). As many have said before, this was a very bittersweet ending for Tawni's family. I am so glad that her family finally has closure after all of these years, but I wish it didn't have to end this way. When I see her pictures I just want to grab her and protect her, and tell her how much I wish I could have helped her. If only I was a little older and living in Phoenix at that time.. I could've been there to make a difference that day. But I suppose I have to live on with the fact that I was at least a small part of solving the identity of this beautiful young woman, Tawni Lee Mazzone. I feel like a different person when I go to sleep at night, and I wake up with less anxiety and tension knowing that she is finally resting a peace in the arms of the Lord.
Her birthday is coming up..

Under your name it says "WS has changed the way I 'walk' in this world, how do I get something put under my name?
Also, yes ws and many of the cases here have given me the insiration (as well as many of the posters and the mods and definatly the ones that I call Family) to be passionate about changing the world one step at a time. I will definatly be helping in any and every way once I am finished with school to solve the cases we have here and many others!Life is just too short to wake up with regrets.So love the people who treat you right and forget about the ones who don't. Believe that everything happens for a reason, If you get a chance:TAKE IT! If it changes your life: LET IT! Nobody said that it would be easy they just said that it would be worth it. The people you need in your life are the ones who have proved they need you in theirs. Love me or hate me, It won't make me of break me.

We sometimes ask why? And that is a question that can never fully be answered. The previous post answered some of those questions. Many we will never hear of as few will speak them or write those words. I hope and pray the Mazzone family will find peace not only knowing these words spoken about how Tawni touched our lives, but remember that is only a small fraction of the many many people she touched in more ways than just here at WS. Tawni has touched many in ways we'll never know.
May the Lord carry you through your greif and shine His light upon you with loving memories of sweet Tawni.~JMO~

please watch this:
Fly, fly little wing
Fly beyond imagining
The softest cloud, the whitest dove
Upon the wind of heaven's love
Past the planets and the stars
Leave this lonely world of ours
Escape the sorrow and the pain
And fly again
Fly, fly precious one
Your endless journey has begun
Take your gentle happiness
Far too beautiful for this
Cross over to the other shore
There is peace forevermore
But hold this mem'ry bittersweet
Until we meet
Fly, fly do not fear
Don't waste a breath, don't shed a tear
Your heart is pure, your soul is free
Be on your way, don't wait for me
Above the universe you'll climb
On beyond the hands of time
The moon will rise, the sun will set
But I won't forget
Fly, fly little wing
Fly where only angels sing
Fly away, the time is right
Go now, find the light

Since I found out that we finally found out who this precious angel is I have been in search of my book of poems that I wrote a while ago..one stuck out in my head but I was having a hard time trying to figure out the exact words I had written..SO i finally found my book and began to look through the poems that I hav written or the ones that my friend have written and I finally found the one that I was looking for.....Hope that you all think it fits. I wrote this after my last miscarriage but I think it fits...
Babies are Angels
Babies are angels that fly to the earth
their wins disappear at the time of their birth
One look in there eyes and we are never the same
they are part of us now
and that part has a name
that bond is your heart
and that part will remain
with you forever
through love and through pain
our babies are angels
As we carry them with us
even after they pass
are babies are angels
who fly by our sides
Hope you all like it and that it will be comfort to you in this time of loss!Life is just too short to wake up with regrets.So love the people who treat you right and forget about the ones who don't.

To Tawni’s family: You’re in my thoughts and prayers tonight. I'm glad you finally have some of the answers you were seeking.

Tawni is a beautiful girl, you must be so proud. Please, take good care of yourselves, eat and sleep. When you get angry, try to breath. She would not want you to suffer too much.
You are in the thoughts and prayers of so many. May your hearts heal with the help of all of ours.

There are never words to express the heartfelt sorrow of losing a child. Please know that many people have come to love your beautiful child. She will always be in my thoughts and prayers, as will her family. She is at peace now. Thank you for sharing your pictures of her. Seeing her smile takes my breath away.

Through Tawni, we all now have another family spoke to add to the wheel of love that shall never be broken, nay shall it ever not turn. We have each other, through it all, we shall overcome. Tawni unites, though some won't receive their Glory and crowns while here on Earth, she leaves us a legacy, a heritage, a reason and a light to follow. Her glory is her legacy. Her namesake shall never be wiped off the face of this Earth.
Beloved, for me, the stinging ache that was always there in the midst of the unknowing, has now turned to adoration. Yes someone loved her. Yes someone missed her. Yes she had a Family searching high and low. Now we all know, someone loved and cared for Tawni. This knowledge almost closes the part of the heart shorn by loss. Knowing she had a loving Family as you, makes me glad and continue to have Faith that mankind is good.
Shine Tawni, Shine, your light shall never be hidden or put out. Heal Family, for the circle shall go un-broken. The Wheel shall keep turnin. So be it!!! Amen!

what a beautiful collage. You know, in that middle photo, she looks a lot like Drew Barrymore.
