It's never easy to say goodbye to a loved one. It's especially difficult when that loved one is a child. There are so many questions, some we may never know the answers to. Here's what I do know - Kiara brought joy into the lives of everyone she ever met. In her six years on this earth, she touched so many lives that the service was standing-room only. I don't know why she was taken away, but I believe that when she was here she brought her family closer in a way that for many years seemed impossible. I pray that time will bring peace to her father, my cousin. I wish I'd had the chance to know her better, but I know that I am blessed to have known her at all. Kiara was a gift, and it's an understatement to say that she will be missed.
