Arianna touched the
lives of so many people. She was born with special needs, and we believe she

It was only us who
understood her unique way of communicating and showing her love, and only us
who knew her time here on earth was a blessing.
Arianna may have
left us here full of sorrow and grief, but she also left us here with many
gifts that will be forever enjoyed. She taught us love, joy, strength,
perseverance, and patience, as well as those to the contrary, though the
latter we now know how to battle, because of her. An endless list would
contain the number of miracles Arianna has allowed us to witness, all the
while bringing our family closer together.
Arianna will be
forever missed, but we know her time with us served a purpose, and she can
now run and play with the angels. Sweet dreams, Tiny Angel.
