I miss Alanna with all my heart. There is not a minute that goes by i do not think about her smiling, laughing, running up to me, Or simply saying "Uncle Chris". Since she was born i never honestly planned on having a child of my own. I was around her so much and took care of her so often that in a way i feel i played a portion of the 'Parental' role. She came to me and told me everything, Tried to sneak candy past me, And always asked me my opinions on everything. I would give anything to have her back for another day... But i have accepted that she is gone.
Luckily enough her brother Alan 'Blaze' Garris Jr. is still here with us. And now i am staying strong as possible for him.
Alanna has touched more lives in her short 6 years then i could have ever imagined. She never judged anyone. But she would debate till you where blue in the face. We will all miss her and think highly of her for the rest of our days.
Love you 'Nan'.
