“Ravaisy” loved life and Jesus and had so much faith. She enjoyed playing and swimming with her cousins and sisters. Her passions were anything active—tumbling, singing, dancing, cheering, soccer and playing volleyball with her sisters and friends. Ravae was Dad’s helper working in the shop with her own tools. She is and always will be our angel from God.
Pallbearers will be her uncles Chad Holloway, Joe Seely, Daniel Chacon and Anthony Chacon. Honorary pallbearers are members of the Roswell Fire Department and members of the Chaos Soccer Team.
Family and friends are invited to gather after burial at the Allen and Rhiannon Holloway home.

“Daddy please don’t look so sad, momma please don’t cry.
‘Cause I’m in the arms of Jesus, and he sings me lullabies.
Please try not to question God, don’t think he is unkind.
Don’t think he sent me to you and then changed his mind.
You see I’m a special child, I am needed up above.
I’m the special gift you gave Him, a product of your love.
I’ll always be there with you, so watch the sky at night.
Look for the brightest star and know that’s my halo’s brilliant light.
You’ll see me in the morning frost that mists your window pane.
That’s me in the summer showers, I’ll be dancing in the rain.
When you feel a gentle breeze from a gentle wind that blows.
Know that it’s me planting a kiss upon your nose.
When you see a child playing and your heart feels a tug,
Don’t be sad mommy, that’s just me giving your heart a hug.
So daddy don’t looks so sad and momma please don’t cry.
I’m in the arms of Jesus and he sings me lullabies!
