BB, from the moment you were born, you were a ray of sunshine. We were blessed with your love for 24 years but you were called to our father too soon. I will forever keep the good memories engraved in my soul. You were loved by so many and you will forever be with us. Love you my dear BB.

My little cousin, no matter what you always enter the room with a big smile and just being silly! Cracking jokes to throwing me in the pool. You loved deeply and even if time past and our life’s moved quickly you always took the time to see how I was, or to remind me I’m a good mom. I miss our conversation and your random texts, I wish you could’ve visit us in Hawaii. You’ll always be in my heart never forgotten, may you fly high and watch over all of us. Love you
