My wonderful niece Lydia, it has been a privilege to watch you grow up and become a young woman. I am so thankful for the opportunity to go to Disney with you recently as well as celebrate your achievement of your associate's degree. So glad to be a part of your life and I will miss you but I have the hope of seeing you again in Heaven. Love you!

My beautiful niece. Even though i know you are at home in heaven, you have left a hole in our family that can never be filled. You will be forever loved and missed. Your beautiful smile will always be in my memory. Our loss is God's gain. Looking forward to our family reunion in God's Kingdom .
