Our beautiful baby girl, our Halloween blessing. Has left us weeping and wishing for more time. The bright light in her eyes, the great fire in her soul has gone out. The big loving heart has stopped beating. We will never hear her thoughts, words, wishes or dreams again, and for that, we live in a world that is less without her laughter her smile. The love in her eyes for her boys, the way she had with animals. The passion she had in her heart. We now must hold on tightly to the memories she gave us, for someday, her sons will need us to tell them of these memories. She has now entrusted this to all of us, we can, we must keep these memories of her alive.
