“Even though God chose you to go home at such a young age, you sure taught me what it was like to love unconditionally. I miss you sweetie. Rest with the Angels.” - Anonymous

“Aurora and her siblings visited with my family for a number of weeks prior to their grandmother taking them to Guyana Their mother was a great friend to my older sister. I was a bit older but still a young teenager and Aurora stuck to me like glue. I enjoyed her company. She was a cute kid. Aurora loved music. To this day when I hear the Leo Sayers song "When I need You," I think of Aurora and her brother and sister. When you think of people who have passed their soul is awakened in Heaven. I think of you often, Aurora.” - Charlene Miller

“Dearest Lisa, Aurora, and Terry, You are forever in my prayers. Thank you for being such great friends to me, my sister, and my brother as we played for many years on Canada Street in Santa Barbara. The amazing adventures we created, the forts we built, and the mud-pies we fed our dolls will forever be within my fondest of memories. I pray you felt no pain and felt no fear as you passed through this life towards your way back to heaven. Your childhood friend, Ericka” - Ericka
