There really are no words to describe the force of nature that is our Roo. The dash between those two dates is so small, but it holds so much love, so many memories, and countless stories from the past 21 years. 

Roo was just an amazing little human. She had a smile that could light up a thousand nights, and stop a thousand wars. 

Her little brother Dylan, her family, and her friends were the most important people in her life. She was everyone’s “best friend” and she never met a stranger. She loved with her whole heart, and wanted nothing more than to see her friends succeed. She was always encouraging, and ready to lift anyone up. She always made a point to remind people how proud she was of them, and how much she loved them. 

She spread love like wildfire. 

She wanted to be a doctor when she grew up. She wanted to help, and heal people, and she genuinely wanted to make the world a better place. 

She was our free spirited, wild child, and we couldn’t have asked for a better daughter, sister, grand daughter, niece, girlfriend, and friend. 

She will ALWAYS be her momma’s Little Girl, and her Grandpa’s Princess. 

21 years was not enough time with her. She will be missed every single day, and more than any words can say. 

We love you, our Roo.
