Kaydence attended the Philippi Head start. She loved school and absolutely adored her friends and teachers (Ms. Monique & Ms. Brittany). School was a place where she could let go and just be herself. Kaydence was a very smart girl for her age. She could count to 12; sing all her ABC’s knew all her colors, shapes, and sizes, etc… She was definitely a beautiful, gifted little angel.
Kaydence loved to dance and sing. She loved to color. She just adored all her family and friends.She loved to go for long walks, and just being outside. She loved to wear her hair down and feel like a princess. Kaydence had a great love for books and learning. She loved just everything and everybody. She was full of love. Oh and for the people, that knew her well, you cannot forget how funny she was. How she could brighten anyone’s day with just a flutter of those long magnificent eyelashes of hers. Kaydence you will NEVER be forgotten. We all love you
From Mommy: You were my sunshine, my light, and my life. You lifted me up in my times of sorrow, and kept me strong in my times of weakness. You were always my number 1. Mommy misses you so much more than I can even explain. Words cannot express the love I had and still have for you. You were always my little angel and now you really are one.
