It has been 5 years since my brothers granddaughter died .
Since her death, her brother Jared married a beautiful young woman and they have a son, her Grandmother Joyce and Aunt Cleo, my sister have joined her.
Her Grandfather my Brother moved back to our home town.
Her Dad was re-elected Mayor of Brooklyn Center and her Mom, my niece, was elected to the State Senate.
Many things have changed but one thing stays the same she is always in our thoughts.
