Riley, u were the light of my life, I am so fortunate that I got to spend some time with you and that I let you know what an awesome mom you were when all the odds were stacked against you, you would have even have moved heaven and hell to keep her, she will continue to spend time on this eternal earth until our Lord saviour calls her home, I want you to know that you were so loved from young yo old, I will miss you my precious Angel until we meet again.

Sweetest girl I knew. Always treated people with respect and had a heart so full of love. Beautiful person inside and out, and a great mom to her little girl. Will be very missed.

We were just chatting on Snapchat two days before you left us to rise up to heaven. I’m sure you’re momma cried and hugged you and let you know how she’s been watching you this entire time. Telling you about how great of a mother, sister, and friend you have been. You helped me through some very dark times and I hope I helped you through some of your dark times as well. We checked on each other all the time just to make sure everything was going good. I constantly called you supermom because you did the best job as a single mom and it showed and continues to show through Callie. You gave me some of the best advice I’ve ever been given. Mommy tips, makeup tips, how to come out of a depression episode. I would always make it a point to let you know how BEAUTIFUL you were. We made plans to get together with the babies at the pool before summer ended and I will always regret not making them sooner. I wish I could have met you in person because honestly you were a one of a kind type of friend to me. Your soul was to good for this ugly world. But, I know your sister will do her best to make all of Callie’s dreams come true, just as you would have. I will miss seeing your face, your cute lunches for Callie, and most of all your words of wisdom. You made such an impact on so many people and I know you can see that now. I wish things were different and you were still here, but that is selfish of me. God called you home and you are finally at peace with no more darkness in your life, just light. I’m sure it is 1000 times more beautiful up there now that you’re there. I have no doubt about that. I can’t wait to see you one day, when my time is here. Until then paint those cotton candy skies and if you happen to run into my mother in law, who you gave me SOO much advice about while I was grieving her death, tell her we are okay and that YOU were a huge part of helping me deal with losing a parent. I will never forget you and your kindness. I love you! Xoxo
