“You were really too perfect for this cruel world and the time when I can be with you again cannot come soon enough.

“Your four brothers and all your family and friends will keep your memory alive as long as we are all alive. We will never stop talking about you because you were the most caring, considerate, loving, funniest and most beautiful girl and we will cherish the time we had with you forever.
