She was a good person in a hard world. She deserved better than this out of life. I wish she could have found a way to have it. I will miss her, and I will never forget her.

The world will miss your spunk and your spirit...
I wish we would have talked more... I wish life had been kinder to you...
But I know you will still be looking out for your family and friends in your own way. Sleep with the angels, baby girl.
