"I hope that you find some comfort in knowing that your daughter's life has touched people and created ripples, even in the lives of strangers who never knew her, which will have ongoing and lasting effects."
-Marianna Schenk, third degree of separation from Casey.
"Six degrees of separation
(also referred to as the "Human Web") refers to the idea that, if a person is one step away from each person they know and two steps away from each person who is known by one of the people they know, then everyone is at most six steps away from any other person on Earth

We all have our own, personal, unique relationship with Casey Feldman. We all have our own individual memories that stand out in our mind, our own ways of meeting Casey or coming to know of her.
Many members on this site never got the chance to meet Casey personally, but have been inspired by her life, come to experience her personality and spirit through hearing about her from others, and so, have developed their own interesting relationship with Casey.
Use this space to talk a bit about how Casey came to enter your life and change it for the better. If you did not meet Casey-- what is your "degree" of separation from her?
(This idea may seem complex, but it is really quite simple!! For example, the students in the Alternative Spring Break volunteer program at University of Colorado at Boulder are third degree of separation from Casey: From Brett being Casey's brother at Colorado, these students got to meet the Feldmans and came to know Casey. And so, Casey-> Brett-> Mr. & Mrs. Feldman-> students at Colorado.)
It is amazing how one person has the power to affect so many lives on Earth!!!
