We love you forever until I see you again

I am so heartbroken over this tragic loss.
Cierra was a beautiful and  vibrant young woman whose spirit touched all who met her. My hope is that everyone who is mourning her departure from this earth will find comfort in knowing she is at peace living a life free of any pain or sadness. She is dancing with the angels and living her best life. We will always treasure the memories of Cierra and will be reunited one day.  Love you Cindy, Ken and Audri. 

May your energy burn bright and guide us in our times of grief, and sparkle in our eyes as we walk upon the sand, I know you're there with me.One day again I will hold your hand, your beautiful smile and memories will echo in my heart forever, and help me live a better day. Your auntie, Michelle

I had only met Cierra one time when she came to the shop to see Curt. She was beautiful and so full of life. I lost my son 5 years ago. I know how devastating it is to lose a child. I am so very sorry to everyone who loved and cherished this sweet girl. Love and Prayers to you all.

I don't know what happened to the heartfelt thoughts that poured out ...must have gone to the universe. Hope you heard me Cierra.
