I never had the pleasure of meeting you but I am blessed to know your sister Annie and through her I felt like I knew you as well. Strong, compassionate, intelligent and special to so many people. May you rest in peace. God has a beautiful and peaceful home just for you. I promise to be there for Annie.

Words are not enough to express our sadness. You were are daughter, and Avery Patrick our grandson. We loved you from the moment you asked us to be your God parents at such a young age. Our many holidays together, and visits during the summer, left us with many memories, but it was not enough time to spend with you. We promise to continue to love Avery Patrick and provide for him in any way we can.

From Sharon & Tony Perez...
