I do not know you, nor did I know Arianna, but I do know all too well the pain, disbelief, and utter sadness you are going through since your beautiful daughter died. Nothing in this world can compare to the horrific loss of a child. I know this because I too had to give 2 of my 3 children back to God when they were killed in separate car accidents, 16 years apart. My son Mitchell was the same age as your Arianna. He died in 2000, on the way back to his 3rd week of his freshman year of college. My Britany was 32, She died as a passenger in a single car accident in August of 2016. My life was forever changed when I lost Mitchell, only to be shattered once again 16 years later. When I read of Arianna’s death my heart literally ached for your family, knowing the heart ache you were experiencing. I just want to tell you how very sorry I am for your tremendous loss, and to tell you I am praying for you in the days, weeks, and months ahead. No one can truly understand unless they have been through the loss of a child themselves. I facilitate a grief support group in Hutchinson called “The Compassionate Friends.” It is tailored specifically for parents who have lost a child of any age, for any reason. We meet the 2nd Monday of each month at 6:30-8:30 pm at the Oakland Chapel, right next to Vivid Images (on the service road near Dobratz/Hantge Funeral Chapel). I invite you to come join us as soon as you feel comfortable doing so. You don’t have to say anything…just come for the love and support of those of us who have walked in your shoes. We are a very friendly, caring, and empathetic group who can help you to navigate this uncharted territory of immense loss. May God give you peace and comfort. I pray all your precious memories of Arianna will hold you up when you are weak~ May God’s grace and love hold you now and always~ Jo Reck 320-583-6036 **My children are interred at St A’s cemetery as well, just to the north of the center seating area

Dear DeeDee & Joel and Vos Family,
I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful daughter Ari. Ari was a sweetheart and always had a smile on her face when I came down to Mankato to visit Kaylee. God has gained a beautiful and animal loving angel. She will be missed. She touched a lot of peoples life in a very short time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
jody B Walling says
I am so sorry I cannot even imagine the pain of losing a child. My thoughts are with you if there is anything I can do to help I am in Hutchinson. I worked with you at Playhouse childcare center.
Mary (Heiland) Ives says
Dear Vos Family.
A friend of mine sent me a newspaper clipping of Arianna’s obituary and asked if she was a relative of mine. I honestly did not know. And then I saw her picture in an on-line obituary and knew she must be related. It took me a bit of time working on my Vos Ancestry family records to find the connection but I was overwhelmed when I found it. I am so sorry for your loss. There will be a Vos family reunion in Carver County Minnesota next month. It will be my honor to introduce Arianna to my Vos family and we will include all of you in our prayers that day. You have our deepest sympathy.
Patrick Furth says
To the family,
I had the opportunity to work with Ari in Mankato up until the accident. She was fairly quiet, yet hard working and had a tremendously good attitude. Observing this in a work setting and being a father of grown daughters myself, one can’t help to admire her upbringing and the network of loved ones who must have been influencing her life. It is my hope for you that the Christian hope of the resurrection as spoken of in the Bible will be soon be a reality, and you can once again enjoy having her with you! In the meantime, the grief is real and can be heavy at times. May God help carry that load for you as you pray for strength to persevere. (Psalm 55:22)
Kimberly Macemon says
Dear Vos Family,
My family does not know your family, but know that we are keeping you all in our prayers. There are no perfect words to take away the devastating pain you are feeling. Your lives stop as the world continues to go on. God is wrapping His loving arms around you during the difficult days ahead. You are not alone.
Dear Dee Dee ….my thoughts have been with you for days now. Every thing I want to say doesn’t seem to wash the feelings away. Feelings of a mothers worst nightmare. As I read through Ari ‘s obituary I gained some pieces of her personality. I have heard lots of times we grieve for ourselves because we are left behind to live without that someone. In your grief … believe Ari was called home. She was just as beautiful on the inside and I am sure she was needed to help out in heaven. No other words I know to wash the hurt away. Heaven gained your Angel. With much love your cousin.
Alyssa Homan says
Praying that the Lord provides you with comfort and strength in the days, weeks and years ahead. It seems so unfair to lose such a wonderful young person just beginning her life but I hope you rejoice in knowing she is with Jesus. I too am the mother of an angel (Carsten 12) and look forward to the day that we are reunited again.
Blessings, Alyssa Homan
Kristine Nett says
Dear Dee Dee and family,
I am terribly saddened to hear of Ari’s death. I don’t have any words that will comfort you at this time. I am just truly sorry that you now have to face this loss. I can’t imagine what you are all going through. May God hold you all close and give you the strength and support you need as you travel your grief journey. Big hugs!
