From the moment I came into the family you always welcomed me like I had been a part of the family forever. You were my little Cinderella that always had to be home before dark but always made sure you made it to all family functions. You will be truly missed in more ways than one from your sweet smile that lit up a room to the never ending love you showed to all your loved ones. I will forever be greatful that my children got to meet you and see what a great women you were. Your memory will Forever live on in our hearts with all the memories made until we meet again.
