I am deeply saddened, I need to share...my cousins young daughter passed away today, Samantha or Sammy was 13, Sam was born with a rare palsy I apologize the name slips my mind. Sam suffered yet prevailed at the same time, she couldn't walk but thru therapy and determination she was gaining strength in her legs, she even had special crutches. She could only speak a few words, her favorite word her uncle Paul taught her was "cool"... All 5 of our cousins live in Florida and we my bothers and I and them are very close as we all grew up here in Ohio as kids until they moved down in 1980. My mom and her two sisters are very close, and my mother and aunt sue are devastated over the news and that they can't be there to be with their sister my aunt threase Sammy's grandma... My brother David and I will be going down tommorow afternoon to represent the family up here. Sam will be laid to rest on Saturday ... My heart is broken I loved Sam so much ... When I went down there alone and met her for the first time she was 3 I fell in love with her.. I would cuddle her and rock her ..omg this is so hard, when we were down last year she was in her wheelchair showing us how she could control it, she high fived everyone, always smiled seemed like no matter what... She could even swim with assistance in thier pool. She was everyone's inspiration a real living doll..she loved hugs and kisses. She will be so dearly missed.. I must go as I have been crying all day, I need some sleep .. Thank you ladies for listening. Sammy is in heaven where no more disease can cause her grief, no more nasty uti's can cause her pain, no more wheelchairs..or crutches, no more tube feed..just peace ...fly on my sweet angel fly on... Rest in peace darling...your in the arms of angels now... We here on earth will watch over your mommy and daddy you needn't worry... We will remember you for your big smile, your insistence on always wearing your piggy tails in your hair, for your strength and determination even when it hurt.. Your loving hugs and big kisses.... Even though we are all sad we thank god we had you for 13 years...but god has other plans for you little bit, so we will meet again some day...your loved.. You will be missed...Fly on now and rest with the lord.
