    The sweet little girl is now in the loving arms of our sweet Jesus Christ. The keeper of all children. She is in a much better place now.

    Please cover all water or fence it, even a bucket or small pool can be deadly, I am so sorry for the loss of this child, but please cover or fence all bodies of water, even the toilet. They even have locks for toilets because a small child is top heavy and can fall in and cannot get out !
