My beautiful cousin, Abby, You were just a baby when it all began. I couldn’t wait for the next time I would babysit you. As a tween it was what I lived for. As you grew and had your own babies I had the privilege to babysit & enjoy them. God places us where He wants us and when. He knew these moments were what my life needed then to help foster in me into who I am today. Raising 6 children of my own and working with others children, I am forever grateful he used you! I will always hold so very dear to my heart the memories we shared. Lovingly, Your cousin, Angel

When I first found out that she was soon to be gone I fell right into my fathers arm balling my eyes out as he explained things to me I then once i was finnished went straight to bed.. the next day i woke up and went to school and told my best friend who then gave me my valentines gift which brightened my day.. 2 days later she passes peacefully I went home from school that day and that was the first thing I was told when i walked in the door...as I was told i began to start shaking viciously and exclaimed i was going to my room.. the moment I walked in I started crying screaming why, why so soon? and began praying as i fell lifelessly onto my floor crying in pain and agony wondering why everything was happening.. i refuse to believe she is gone but instead still with us in our hearts and souls..for she is one of my favorites to be with especially on summer vacations from all the jokes to all the comedic moments... I love and miss you so much aunt happy, I would do anything to still have you with us today
