She wrote: “As I sit in my bedroom clinging to my daughter’s ball glove, kickball, favorite cow pillow, and the box of things her teacher brought home to us, I am reminded once again she’s not coming home.

“She’s not walking through my front door. No more homework after school. I can’t do her hair anymore. No more hugs, no more kisses, and no more I love yous. I ask all you parents and grandparents to make sure that your babies know you love them.

“A senseless act which I would never ever had condoned, took my angel. It sickens me, and there’s nothing I can do to make it different”

In another post she wrote: “The saddest moment is when the person who gave you the best memories becomes a memory.”

May she rest in peace.
