My Story

Caitlyn was and is the love of our life. She is missed by her two brothers Patrick and Jackson, her father and mother along with other family members and friends who had the honor of knowing and loving her. She was an energetic, fun and creative child who left this earth to soon. At the young age of 6 Caitlyn lost her battle to a brain tumor. She has taught us all so much about love and life. Nothing is to be taken for granted, every minute is valued. She was so much wiser then we will ever be. Our hope is that a cure will be found so other familys will not have to say good bye to their child before they have had a chance to live a full life.
