Kiara is pleased with her new piercings.

Kiara's studious side, last summer at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.

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


Delaney is a relatively new, and loyal, friend of Kiara.

Family and friends gather on 8/13/17 in tribute to our dearly beloved Kiara.

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.
