God Bless you Michael and Jody. We are so sorry for your tremendous loss. We love you both very much. I wish I could take your pain away
I wanted to share a memory I met this precious little girl at the races. She was so sweet, polite, and giving. She gave a pop it to my lil Emma and played with her. She will be missed and will remember her fondly every time I’m at the races. Prayers to mom and dad it will not be easy to go through life without your baby. She will be with you forever in your heart and memories.
(Emma is my friends daughter)
