"She was the love our lives and a very special little girl. She could make us smile just by being in the room with her."
Mariah's mother


The youngest daughter of Michael & Michel (Micki) and sister to Morgan.

Riah loved to play, laugh and giggle and her laugh was contagious to everybody around her. She loved to color and wanted to be an artist when she grew up. Her favorite colors were pink and purple. She looked up to her sister Morgan and emulated much of what she did. Riah spent much of her short but very meaningful life being treated for a brain tumor and inspired many people along the way.

On April 27, 2007, she was diagnosed with an inoperable malignant brain tumor called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). She earned her wings in August 2008.

Her spirit will live on in the hearts of all who knew her. Riah will be dearly missed by her parents Mike and Micki, her sister Morgan, grandparents Michael and Lynn Pagel & Laurie Laurent & James Klein, great grandparents James and Betty Laurent and Ernestine Delebreau. Riah stays also in the hearts of her many aunts and uncles and other relatives.
