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.

Kiara is pleased with her new piercings.

Kiara enjoyed ice cream parlors with her younger sister, Lorraine.

Friendly Gatlinburg, TN parrots!
