Kerra M. Wilson, 8, of Mitchell, passed away September 22, 2011, in rural Sioux County. April 17, 2003, the world became a better place when Kerra Marie Wilson was born to Amanda Wilson in Scottsbluff.

Kerra was the light of her family's life. She lived with Mom, Papa and Nana Wilson, as well as her aunt Abby and uncle Aaron for the first several years of her life. To say she was a Grandpa's Girl (Papa Wilson's) is an understatement. She adored him and he adored her.

Kerra was an amazing little girl who touched people's hearts the instant she met them. Once you met Kerra you never forgot her. She was always the bright light illuminating even against the darkness, when she flashed a smile you were instantly hooked. She loved being a "Lil Mommy" to her siblings and any other little ones she was ever around.

She was wise beyond her years, a generous, loving little girl who always tried to put other above herself. If she was eating a meal or a snack and she thought a sibling wanted more she would offer hers saying "I am full." She truly was a generous, loving, concerned little girl who relished in making others happy and brought a smile to their face.

Her mere presence could light up a room; bring a smile to your face, and warmth to your heart. She accomplished more in her eight short years than most people only hope and dream to achieve. She aspired to grow up to be just life her Mommy, looking forward to becoming a mommy someday as well as a school teacher. When her brother Kooper was born the separation of just a few hours was heart wrenching for both Kerra and her Mom.

She was a typical little girl who loved High School Musical, Hanna Montana, Selena Gomez and all the things girly, including being a Drama Queen at times. She enjoyed swimming, playing on the trampoline, watching movies, playing with and reading books to her siblings. She liked spending time with family and friends, singing along to and dancing to favorite songs. She found pleasure in playing jokes on people she was close to. If she thought you were down she would do whatever it took to cheer you up.

Her absence will forever leave a huge void for all who loved and adored her. Black holes and black clouds do exist. We will forever have black holes in our hearts, overshadowed by black clouds. Kerra loved unconditionally and died without reason. Kerra Marie you will never be forgotten.

Kerra leaves behind her mother Amanda, brother Kooper, sisters Keanny and Nathiiah, her Nana and Papa Wilson (Bill and Shelly), her uncle Aaron and aunt Abbby, as well as great-grandfather Joe McAninch all of Mitchell; great-grandparents, Beryl and Orin Florence, great-aunt and uncle Marsha and Richard Garza all of Syracuse, Kansas; great-aunt and uncle Tammy and Jeff Munsch of Colorado Springs, Colorado; great-uncle Grant Florence of Ulysses, Kansas; multiple cousins, as well as stepsisters Jasmin and Miah; stepbrothers Michael, Brandon and Blake; and very special friends Gayle, Gene, and Chapman Hascall whom Kerra knew as Aunt, Grandpa, and Cousin from Torrington, Wyoming.

She was greeted and welcomed into heaven by her great-grandmother Carol McAninch; an infant sibling; great-great-grandparents Dwight and Georgia Brasher and Earnest and Cecil Florence; great-grandparents William and Daisy Wilson; a great aunt Michelle Florence; two special uncles, Robby Martin and Thomas (Tiny) Garner; and many many friends close to the family.

Interment was in the Mitchell Cemetery, Mitchell, NE.
