Haley Danielle Cox, this beautiful young girl age 15, passed away May 20, 2011, by taking her own life. Haley Danielle had been a diabetic since a very young girl, which she had learned to cope with. She always had a smile, but behind those smiles were lots of pain, humiliation and suffering due to being BULLIED for months prior to her death. She was a little different for she liked to wear bright colors and maybe socks that didn’t match. BUT, she was still a person, loving and caring and a child of GOD.
This kind of death has become quite prevelant in these days and is happening in lots of schools all over this country. If you notice a change (or watch for signs) in your child, TALK to them (DRAG it out of them if you have to), but – - Find out what the problem is. DON’T let this happen to your LOVED ONE.
Services for Haley were held Wednesday, May 25, 2011 at the Bellaire Baptist Church in Bossier, LA. Burial followed at the Applewhite Cemetery in Cotton Valley, LA.
