My darling daughter I can't express the pain I'm having, plus knowing the pain Jerry and Abby are and will be going through. Or how your sister and brothers feel. I love you so much and will miss you terribly. But I do have comfort in knowing that you are with God. You have your legs back and your suffering has stop. And I'm sure you are dancing around with your daddy. I'm so grateful that you were here long enough for you, daddy and I to made that full circle. Where you was our baby girl and we were you best friends,then we were embarrassing parents,to OH please let me live my life(things are different then when you all were my age} until you had your child and you didn't know how dad and I had four kids and not gone crazy. I was reading all the cards you had given dad and I over the years and realized you knew we were always your best friend and how much we all loved each other. But even though you are not able to make your circle with Abigail, Jerry, your love and best friend will make sure that Abby will know how much you loved her and that you are always with her. Along with John, Joseph, Kathleen and I. We will always be his backups. Sissy, I miss you so much but I know that I will be with you and dad soon. I hope you know how much you are loved and will be missed by all. Although your wings were ready but our hearts were not, we know that you are in the best hands ever. For there is no greater love than GOD, we are extra and we have the greatest love humans can have for one another. So baby until we meet again rest in peace and enjoy your life ever lasting. Love you always,mom.

My Aunt Emily was one of the toughest people I knew. It was easy to see the strength she had. I will miss her stories and the late night talks. Love you
