She was such an innocent, pure young woman who I am truly glad that I had the chance to know her. We were very close child hood friends, when she used to live across the street of my complex. I remember that we would just walk around, talking about our dreams; or really just anything that popped to our minds'. I remember one time we went down to Wal-Mart and brought up a cart and just rode it in and out of my complex, over all of the huge speed bumps. We used to have so much fun, living life to the fullest and just yearning for the next time we could hang out. (Which generally was the next day) I had never of thought that our relationship would wind up ending so soon, at such an early stage in our lives. I can’t grasp upon any reason on why someone would want to take someone else’s innocent life, especially Chelsey's. She didn’t deserve the life that she was given; nevertheless, she made the best of it; touching several other peoples hearts in millions of ways. In reality; she may be gone, although in memories she forever lives. I hope that the person who is responsible for his/her actions either is caught or comes forward, so that Chelsey, her family, and numerous friends can all have some peace.

Chelsey was like a sister to me... she made me lauph and we had alot of great times together.. and we will all miss her theres no doubt about it. Ever since chelseys Dissaperence... every night i'd lay in bed and wonder.. you know were she was how she was.. i'd wonder when she was she was going to come home to her family and friends.. and you kno all i wanted was a sighn that she was ok... and u kno it must really hard on her mom because that was her angel... her little girl... you know we have a time in our lives where it seems it wont get get better... or theres hope... and in chelseys case that waz the factor... and u change the past or curve the future how u want it to go because if we could im sure we all would have made it so chelsey was save and at home... were she belonged.... and im really sure that alot of ppl wont rest... until her soul has has bein laid to rest... and the only way that will happen is if her killer is found.. and i remember her smile... and her lauph when we'd walk around mill lake and the mall and we'd just have to much fun... now the girl i looked at as my little sister... is no were to be found... and along with me and a whole lot of others im sure you'll agree Chelsey may be with us anymore by human form... but everyone who knew her she touched in a way that there will always be a chelsey in all of us

Chelsea was one of the strongest people i ever knew, she was a sister to me and one of my very close childhood friends. We went everywhere together there was nothing i wouldnt do for her and there wasnt anything she wouldnt do for me. I dont understand how a girl can be taken so wrecklessly and with no emotion from this world. I believe that the person who did it should have to bare the shame but obviously this person did not have any shame or regret for what they did. That saddens me because it shouldnt have been her time and she had such a life ahead of her and she could have made so much of herself but with just one instant someone stole it all away and its not fair and i dont think anyone should have to bare the pain that myself and others have to feel when we wake up each morning knowing that she is not here and that she is no longer with us. Chelsea helped us all in alot of ways she made a big impact on peoples lives i know she did on mine, if someone is willing to take that all away without even a second thought i think that person should be punished to the full extent of his/her crime. She didnt deserve this noone does, the pain, the heartache, everything you shouldnt have to feel when you are so young is being thrown into our laps and it hurts, sometimes we dont know how to feel, sad, angry, furious, hateful, in depression, we dont know but all we know is that we loved her all the same through her flaws and her gifts, she had so many gifts that she could have given to the world, but that dream is over. I hope that everyone that knew her will carry her on in their hearts and never let her memory die because i know that she wasnt perfect but who is and i believe i will carry her on in my heart forever and i will never let another person say they didnt know her because she will never be forgotten in my eyes. To the person that stole her life away, if you are reading this i hope you realize the pain and suffering you have made people endure and i hope you feel mighty proud of yourself for taking a childs life, i hope it makes you feel good inside, because when we find you, that happiness inside , i will PERSONALLY make sure that happiness inside you is forever filled with agony and guilt for what you have done.
I love you chelsea!
Rest in peace my angel...

i knew chelsea in a differant way i wasnt one of her friends that would get her drunk or do stiupid things with and we werent dumb "kids" when we hung out we used to talk about everything there was no limits she would talk about how unfair it was that she was in a group home and how crappy life turned out to be but i could relate to everything she said she was exactly like i was when i was 14 she was motivated to have her family back like i was and it kills me everyday to know that she didnt make it and she couldve of i know she couldve been a model she was going to prove that she could make it on her own the only times i ever saw chelsea was when she needed to freak out about everything from not having enough money for make up to not getting along with someone i still feel like it shouldve been me but it wasnt and all i have to say is im really proud of u chelsea u have shown me what it means to live and not take this all for granted

I was priveleged to meet Chelsey when I was working as a parent helper in my son's gr. 3 class. Chelsey came into the class and from the moment we met her you knew there was something special about her. The other children took to her right away, wanting to help her make friends and adjust in a new school. Chelsey was never alone in the school. I remember Chelsey's smile ! It lit up a room. My son is now in gr 10 but we've never forgotten Chelsey. What a tragedy and waste of a young life who if given the opportunity had so much potential!
no more suffering Chelsey,know that you were loved by many.

Chelsey Acorn was a student of mine many years ago. Although she moved away almost as soon as she started the school year, it was very evident to many of us who briefly knew her that this was an extremely troubled and neglected child. This fact however, did not keep this lovely little girl from smiling each and every day she came into our classroom.
My heart is broken tonight, as I just learned about this tragedy.
May she finally rest in peace.

I have only known chelsey for a couple of years, we met when i moved to a her school in grade 5 me and chelsey were the best of friends, my dad and her dad grew up together we knew each other when we were little but had a hard time remebering that far back, chelsey was a well brought up girl, who loved to have sleepovers and watch movies and talk about life. she was the most fun spirited person i knew. i am still mourning the thought of her death, but know she is at peace now and is in no more pain. God Bless you chelsey, my wonder star...wherever you are! I Love You So Much Dear

Thank-you everyone for sharing your kind words and stories on how you met my little girl.It was a big struggle for chelsey throughout her life, she was never neglected or unloved she just needed alot of help and guidance in her struggles which was why I turned to the government for help with her.I was 15 when I had her with no skills especially for someone like chelsey.I did my best and loved my little girl with all my heart.Her sister and 2 brothers did too.She will always be with us all in our hearts.Please continue your stories it really helps me to read them.It is too bad the government has let so many people down who has begged for their help.My heart aches every hour of every day for asking for help from the government.I miss you my angel.No more suffering for you,you are with god now.

Chelsey was my son's first cousin. She was 5 when he was born and they spent a lot of time together. When Chelsey lived with her father on Prince Edward Island, I would take Chelsey for a night here and there. She was full of energy and life. When me and my son moved to Calgary in 2004, we lost track of her. I knew she was having troubles. I knew life was hard for her...I always thought there'd be time to track her down and help her. She had asked to live with me before but I couldn't take her at the time. I promised her that she could live with me when she went to college or university. I hoped that she would get there in her life. Chelsey never had an easy life. She moved around a lot and that meant switching schools and having to make new friends more than she should have. Her mom Lisa tried her best and I am sure that she has learned some hard lessons on raising a child from this tragedy. It's awful, but a lot of adults that knew her felt that she would have a hard time in life. She was so trusting of strangers and was so eager to grow up before her time. She would talk like she was 18 when she was 8. For me, I will remember all that was wonderful about Chelsey...her loving heart, kindness to others, amazing smile, and her innocence. You were loved. Rest in peace Chelsey. I will remember you always.
