Well it's tough trying to figure out the words to say at this point. Just lost! I guess we just weren't ready to let you go yet! You were a major part of my familys lives but more importantly your one and only Alma Nicole! She was your world and you were hers! We have so many good memories with you. I can't recall ever having a bad memory ever! As I told her God loaned you to us and he needed you back so he took you to Heaven with him! I told her this is not goodbye it's Till we see you again! Alma says tell you that you will always have a place in her heart! Won't no boy ever take your place! Thanks for all the good times and helping us raise Alma into the beautiful well mannered girl that she is now and will be in the future! Go fly high with your angel wings up in Heaven with my parents and your parents! I'm sure there's stories to be told! Love always and forever!
