It's been a year without you sis; not a day goes by that mom and I don't think about you. I'm trying to make peace with your loss, but I miss your voice and friendship. We both loved our daily talks. You're an angel that was taken too soon. I love you.

I will always remember the fun times at the cabin on her yearly trips to MN. She was such fun and full of laughter! We had the best conversations of life, family and younger years...Treasure, you will always be in my heart along with Uncle Jim. To a great woman and cousin; RIP.

I can't begin to contemplate how this loss feels because to me it's still so surreal. Like it's happening to someone other than Andrea and the family. I enjoyed every moment of visiting with Treasure. She was a beautiful soul. A beautiful woman. She will be greatly missed and every memory treasured.

My deepest sympathies go out to Treasure's family . Treasure was just as her name described her "Treasure " . My daughters and I will truly miss her and we will always think of her , when showing rabbits she was a blessing to have as a friend. Prayers for her family , Rebecca , Montana, and Fallon Wasson
