Oh, Alisha, my heart’s hurting. I’m praying I wake up and it’s the biggest dream ever but sadly no, I’ll never see your beautiful face again after we’ve laid you to rest.”

Expressing profound sorrow over the loss, Cody Marie continued, “Oh baby girl, what we would give to hold you one last time. Time is so precious as you have proven, and you were taken from us far too early. You had your whole life ahead of you. It hurts, we don’t know what to do. Such a short time on earth but you impacted so many. My body’s numb and my heart’s broken. Love you forever baby girl.”
