Forever in our Hearts
Rebecca Vogelsang was 17 years old and a senior at Forest Hills Eastern High school. She was a member of the National Honor Society and was accepted at the University of Michigan, where she was going to study medical research. She was a ballet dancer starting at the age of 3, and danced in New York and several countries in Europe. She danced jazz and tap competitively, winning numerous trophies. She also sang and performed in many musicals at school. To say she was full of life is an understatement. Rebecca had many friends and was passionate about helping others. She volunteered at God’s Kitchen and organized the high school blood drive. Her spirit lives on in the hearts of her parents and two sisters, and in the recipients of her wonderful gift of life.
