Ariel was a girly girl, she loved her tiara’s and tutus. She had her way of impacting the lives of every person she came in contact with because of her bold but kind and sweet personality.
Ariel was always creative and once put together and entire play, acted it out and narrated at the same time. She loved to play dress up, acting out a character she made up or dressing like her favorite frozen princess, Elsa. She would jump on the bed and act out the Let It Go scene in the movie word for word, move for move. Ariel is a little angel that will always be loved, never forgotten and forever missed.

No words can describe how much you meant to me, every moment we shared I will cherish for eternity, you came into our life and filled it with joy. From the time you were born, it was a special day. You came out fighting the doctors and I knew then this world would never stand in your way. As you grew so did your light, and now that your gone you are my angel that helps me sleep throughout the night. You left your mark on everyone you met, with the energy of a star no one will ever forget. This is one of the hardest things I have ever faced in my life and the love that you brought was priceless. So, it will always leave me with the question, WHY??
