MOUNTAIN HOME--For the family of Rebekah Gould, the last scene of her life is still a mystery.

Larry Gould, Rebekah's father, and his family, laid this precious member of the family to rest over the weekend.

"She was like an angel on earth......maybe a messenger,"said Gould.

A young woman with her whole life ahead of her.

Caring and smart, her father says there was a twinkle in Rebekah's eye.........

"I think she really would have been something in this world. This was a girl that just had it. There are certain people that just wreak of "I'm gonna make it,"said Gould.

Her life was cut tragically short.

Her father's heavy heart is filled with memories of a unique daughter who was robbed of the most wonderful experiences in life.

"They took a very special person out of this world. I think she would have made a wonderful mother, and a wonderful wife for someone,"said Gould.

Larry Gould says it's impossible to describe the anguish a father feels knowing what someone put his daughter through.

"When she arrived in heaven and she walked through the heavenly gates.....I think I can picture our heavenly father taking a look at her and saying heaven won't be the same with you here. I wish he would send her back,"said Gould.
