To the Mcpheeters family,
I will forever remember Junie bug for her precious little voice and love of princesses, specifically the princess gowns. June was such a fighter and will forever leave a legacy on the SCT Unit at Riley. Thank you for allowing me to be part of her journey; it was truly an honor to walk even a small part of her amazing journey with her. May you all find peace and healing in your grief journey. All my love.
