So sorry for your loss. She was such a sweet little thing and can''t imagine the emptiness you all feel without her. Dan had surgery in Des Moines Weds so we couldn''t make it, but our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Sorry about your loss. We never got to meet her but I''m sure she was very sweet and loving like her mother. She will be greatly missed. R.I.P.
