I remember so many days as kids riding bikes and playing together. Even though life made it so that we didn't see each other much in our adult lives, I still will miss her dearly.

To our family of this wonderful niece. She was like a daughter to me along with her sister Cindy. We will miss your sweet smile a giggle. I want to share one of her favorite Bible passages: Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all you heart, And lean not on your own understanding. In all you ways acknowledge Him, And he shall direct your paths. Her faith was strong and she leave many wonderful memories. Richie, our prayer is that God will give you comfort and peace knowing that she is not hurting any more. She was a fighter and your were a strong, loving and caring husband and caretaker. May you find peace and comfort. God Bless you and all the family. Joe & Nancy Ogden
