Patricia is Samantha and Susie's mother. She is still grieving Susie's death, sometimes stopping in the middle of a task to stare into the distance. Her worst fear is Samantha disappearing as well. She could hear Chica's tapping, but she doesn't know who it is coming from. She knits quilts and blankets for a living, and takes sleeping pills to help her sleep. She is tall and has dark brown hair.
Hayden is Samantha and Susie's father. He left after Susie's death because it was "too hard". Before, he used to create his own bedtime stories to tell the children, including one where a boy is able to solve all his problems in a secret room in his house. Coincidentally, Gretchen is found in a secret room in his office.
Jeanie is Samantha and Susie's godmother. She comforts Patricia while she is grieving, either over phone or in-person. Susie was convinced that Oliver would get cold in the winter, and asked Jeanie to knit scarves for the tree. Jeanie made a new one every year. Susie was murdered while wearing the sweater and jeans Jeanie knitted for her. She is short with blonde hair.
Rhonda is Samantha's current counselor. She had had two counselors before her to help her through her grief, but she didn't find them helpful. Samantha, however, actually likes Rhonda. She helps Samantha remember Gretchen, the doll Susie tried to hide from her that led to her murder.
Drew is one of the kids in Samantha's class. At first he walks with the group, but he later goes to Samantha and Susie's house alone. Samantha finds him cute.
