    Her beautiful smile and her laughter I’ll remember always. When she came in the office she was so energetic and ready to take the day. I’ll remember you full of life. Til I see you again watch over your family and tell grandma and my baby sister I love them. Prayers to the family and I’m here if you all need anything at all.
