  1. So sorry to hear this. We had friendships with her parents and brothers. When we moved to Freeport she was only a little girl. She was so cute chattering away like she had known us all along. May God bless her family.

  2. So sorry for your loss in your families. Continue holding onto all of those precious memories with your families and friends.
