I will always remember you Tia. And I will remember how much Lucas made you laugh, how much you enjoyed the time with us. I just feel sad because you passed away so young and I wanted to pass more time with you. Now, only good memories and love is what you left behind, in this world. My Mom, Father, my brother and I will miss you and we love you.
