My Story

Mariah was diagnosed April 27, 2007 at the age of 2 with DIPG. She earned her beautiful wings just 16 months later. She loved to color, draw and play with her big sister. She had a laugh that was contagious. She just wanted to live life and not worry about anything. We tell her friends that whenever they see a butterfly that Mariah is dancing in heaven. Dear Sweet Mariah~you are our precious little peanut. You are the strongest person we knew to have gone through this journey and you've taught us so many things in the four short years you were given. We thank God for the time we've had with you and cherish all the memories we've shared. We will pray you'll be ok "up there" and you'll look down on us often. You will be very missed here on earth; but, we will see you again and the next time it will be forever. We love you so very much.
