96: GOOD BYES | are awful | The day we came back home from bring you to meet the bus...I already missed you!!

97: Gone into this experience, We were not expecting someone to come into our lives for only two months and touch our lives the way you did. Honestly, the day you left it was extremely hard. I felt you had became such a great addition into our family (just the perfect fit). Your parents have so much to be proud of you for, everyday you were always a joy to be around. We could not have asked for a sweeter, kinder person then you. We loved how you were so willing to try and experience everything during your stay. You also made us realize how much we take for granted and how we have forgot to enjoy the little things in our life. You will ALWAYS have a place in our heart and our home. WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH and can not wait until we meet again. Thanks again for making this experience AWESOME. Love, Lee, Milissa, Kaylee and Mitchell Oh by the way, Ceviche just does not taste the same without you. Miss you everyday!
