Desiree was a beautiful person both inside and out. I have such fond memories of her positive and kind nature getting to spend time together growing up. Desiree, I am so proud of the person you became and the accomplishments you made. I wish we had more time together cousin.
Because I know that Christmas was one of your truly favourite holidays, this quote reminds me of you. I will miss you dearly.
