'You can shed tears that she is gone, or you can smile because she has lived. You can close your eyes and pray she'll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all that she's left. Your heart can be empty because you can't see her, or you can be full of the love that you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, or you can be happy for
tomorrow because of
yesterday. You can
remember her only that she is gone, or you can cherish her memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back. Or you can do what she'd want:
Smile, open your eyes,
love and go on.'

Although we know these are the words you would want
us to live by… is still very difficult each and every day! Keep us safe and strong, baby girl. There will be
another 'angel 'coming to see you….please welcome her and take care of her.


Love always,
Mom, Todd, Trevor, Jasmine
Treasured family and friends
