My little firecracker great niece. I will never forget her spunk and love for others. She developed into a great mom, hard worker, fun loving, caring person who I always enjoyed being around. The last time I saw her was at Levi’s 1st birthday last year. She had gone all out with decorations, decorated cake and opened her home to family and there were a lot of people there. She had lots of personality and was so loved. So many people will miss her so much for so many different reasons. God bless…
