GIACOMELLI _ Lindsay Rachel 1984 - 2005 Lindsay Rachel Giacomelli (Lins) passed away at the Foothills Hospital ICU on March 18, 2005 at the tender age of 20 years 9 months. Lindsay was born June 18, 1984 in Red Deer, Alberta, the eldest daughter to Leslie and Gerald Giacomelli, sister and dear friend to Nicholas (Nick, age eighteen) and Stephanie (Steph, age fourteen). She was enrolled at the University of Calgary in the dance program, and was pursuing her dream of dancing. She started dancing at the young age of three, and aggressively pursued it. Such a lucky person, to be going to school and pursuing a career in the area of her love and keen interest. Lindsay was so dearly loved and the pain of her passing is devastating. We are such a tight family, with so many future plans and dreams in the works. There are no regrets to Lindsay's life, no missing words, and no missed opportunities to hear "I love you". She was strong to the very end, and only left us once she knew we were going to be OK. One of her greatest dreams was to dance for Disney, with an audition scheduled for April 6. Her future was all planned out from travel to marriage. She leaves behind her soul mate Tyler Sande, and their future plans together, including a wedding at the Wedding Chapel at Disney World, and a ride to the Chapel in Cinderella's carriage. Her smile and attitude was contagious. She brought joy and happiness to everyone that she touched. Funeral Service will be held at Southwood United Church (10690 Elbow Drive S.W.) on Wednesday, March 23, 2005 at 1:00 p.m. with the Rev. Drew Strickland officiating. Cremation to follow.
