Therefore, we will give you our thoughts of our precious girl. The day we caught you swinging from the dining room light fixture, giggling, we knew you had a spirit of fun and adventure in you. Your humor and intelligence were years ahead of your age. Bullheadedness and a desire to do things on your own was your repertoire. But our love for you was never waning. Your love, caring, and devotion to your Nony during her final days will never be forgotten. Although we will miss you everyday, especially your smile which could melt hearts, you will forever remain in our hearts. We have wonderful memories and it has been a privilege to be your parents. You have left behind many who loved you. Although there is a void within us, you will forever remain in our hearts for the great joy and happiness that you brought. Your life was cut short and now we must endure our emptiness. We know that you are in the arms of Jesus and that one day we will be reunited. A private graveside funeral service will be on Wednesday June 1st, at the Elmwood Cemetery in Sycamore. Her visitation will be on Tuesday, May 31st, from 4:00 to 7:00 PM at the Butala Funeral Home and Crematory in Sycamore. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the ALS foundation. Natasha held a very special place in her heart for her Nony and would have wanted to honor her in this way.
