Dearest Maggie, you never got to ride with Papa in the tractor or help Mama check on cows. You never got a chance to run and play on the farm with Connor, but in our hearts you did. Even though our time with you was short, you have forever left footprints on our hearts. We now have a guardian angel in heaven watching over us all.
