  • I could Not believe what I read when I seen this today Really struck a blow so sad! On and off I have watched her grow up she has always been so pretty and just special a naturally sweet person . I can remember the first time I ever saw her as an infant at Joe and Terry’s. Traci was super tiny too. Remember they are less than a week apart. Brandy had so much hair it looked like a baby wig. Dark complexion and dark eyes. Traci was in the next room total opposite but still a doll! They were like a week or so old. So long ago but nice memories. I know there are no world to ease your pain. But know that I am thinking of you Hold on to times that were special to you Being able to cherish memories and try to grateful you had them. She is with her dad, and your mom and over her struggle! Her time to rest and have peace. . SueAnn you are a strong woman and Jerry is a good guy. Hold on to him and may God give you His strength and comfort you. She was and is a beautiful Spirit I will always remember her exactly that way!🐱🐱🐈🐈

  • I’m truly sorry for the loss of your loved one. Often times we can’t find the right words to express how we feel only tears. God is close to those who are broken hearted, Psalms 147:3. May He strengthen you for the days ahead. Isaiah 25:8

  • Dear Sue,Tanner & Jerry,
    I wish I could express in words the pain in my heart for you. I pray you keep the faith stay strong for each other. I know she & her Daddy are hugging, dancing & cracking jokes. I wish I had more knowledge to base my feelings on but unfortunately that didn’t ever happen. My prayers, love & thoughts will be with you forever. I do feel inside that my wonderful brother is once again happy to have his precious little girl to hold in his arms once again. 🌺🌸🌼🌻❤️❤️❤️
    Love, Brenda
