Kiara's  beautiful piano playing always added to our pleasure. These were indeed happy times.


Kiara gets plenty of loving from Brian, Daddy, and Sean.

These older photos are among my favorites.

This is Kiara's last photo. She did face painting at a church's Easter egg hunt, we later had a family dinner at El Bracero, and she and I watched a movie at home. We said the Lord's Prayer and kissed goodnight, never thinking of an ending of her life here with us.
