why she injured, only that the injuries occurred while she
was being cared for by the person we trusted. Shock and disbelief gave
way to harsh
reality on Friday October 24 when we said good bye to our precious
angel and God took
her home. Words cannot describe the horrific loss of a child, so young
and innocent. We
wish to say thank you to everyone, including those of you we do not
know for all of your
prayers that have helped and will continue to help carry use through
the hardest thing
we will probably ever have to face in this lifetime. God bless"
