Sanoah Huestis, 4 months, died of injuries sustained in a March 2014 mudslide in Oso, Wash.

Sanoah Huestis enchanted people. With her constant smiles, "She could just light up a room," said her mother, Natasha Huestis. "We wouldn't be able to walk down a grocery-store aisle without someone saying how beautiful she was."

Sanoah, who was killed along with her grandmother, Christina Jefferds, had many family members living nearby. "Everybody in the family was so excited to have her be part of their lives," Huestis said. "Everybody wanted to show her so many things as she grew up."

Sanoah was "a little girl who captured your heart," said Peter Jefferds, father of Sanoah's grandfather, Seth Jefferds.
