Ever since I was little she’s always been the most sweetest, most kindest person you could ever meet. Listening to music while we all dance around & cut up brings back so many memories. She’s always had a special place in my heart, bc shes the type of person you wanna become friends with. Even when you lose contact with each other, she’ll pray for you & speak life into you. She will truly be missed, by many. Rest in Paradise beautiful ❤️
