Jasmine was a special little girl who simply loved life. Every day was a new adventure for her whether it was watching her favorite cartoon “Dora” or just spending time with her family. If you were a stranger to Jasmine, you wouldn’t be for long because she would capture your heart with her affection and loving personality winning over the elderly as well as the young. Besides Dora, she loved going to church, going to Grandma’s house and changing clothes.
Jasmine, our baby will be so missed on this earth, but we will try to take comfort knowing that she is now happy and pain free with her Heavenly Father and her new wings. Rest in peace baby, we love you so much and you will forever be in our hearts.
