Myah was born Dec. 7. 2001, in Albert Lea.

She was a very happy baby who always had a smile on her face. She loved her cereal, napping in her swing, and all of her toys. Myah, along with her mommy, lived with her nana and papa. She was their little toot-toots. They shared a very special bond with Myah and cared for her as their own. Myah enjoyed being with her daddy. They spent the days together, while mom was at school, playing and napping. Myah loved it when daddy played peek-a-boo. Myah shared many memories with all of her grandparents, aunts and uncles. She and her year old cousin, Courtney, had their own language and they spoke to each other. They shared many special moments and also many kisses. Myah and her mommy shared a very close relationship. They did everything together. Myah had her first boat ride with her mom. She giggled uncontrollably when mom kissed her neck and toes. The bond they share will never break.

Words can’t express what it is like to lose our baby. Our days will be empty without her laughter and presence. Myah was a special little angel that brightened each day for us. She lived a short, but full life. She has taken the hand of Jesus and started her journey into heaven. We will see you there baby.
