Henry, Tiffany and remaining family. No words can express the feeling of loss each of you must be feeling. What a beautiful young lady. She had such dreams and plans for her future, it truly seems to make no since. Know there was a plan for her much larger than we who remain here on earth could possibly imagine. She was that special!! I have no doubt she will wait patiently until you are all together, never to be separated again!! May god be with each of you in the weeks and months to come as you mourn the loss of a beautiful young lady!!!

Mark and I had just seen her last at subway the previous evening. She has told us what a hectic day it had been but she still had a smile on her face and it was always a joy to see her. We didn't know her well, but from the reports I hear, she was an angel while here on earth and it sounds like God was ready for her sooner than any of us realized. May God hold family and friends close to those left behind and comfort you very much at this time. Our prayers and thoughts are with you, Mike and family.

God Bless you and your family at this very difficult time. KK always had a smile on her face and that I'll always remember.
Angels are always near to those who are grieving,
to whisper to them that their Loved Ones
are safe in the hands of God.
