Our beautiful angel, Baylee has been ripped from us at only 20 years old. It is so hard to comprehend why god would choose to take her from us all. A bright shining star in a universe of love and kindness. It still does not seem real. Baylee is our niece, Baylee Gatlin meant the world to our entire families. God has a plan for you sunshine, and now we wait and morn the passing of your soul to see what is in store for you. We all love you with all of our hearts. We will all be together again on the other side. We love you, love you, love you, love you. (oh, and I have one last bag of purple Skittles for you my love,
Love you forever,
Aunt Wacki

Gabriella Dorado What’s sad is the lack of knowledge and care that some people have for themselves while attending these festivals. Personally being at lightning in a bottle over the weekend, I can admit it has majorly strayed away from it’s purpose/intent on the community. Please be careful out there, take care of your body, and know your limits. On Saturday night I saw this actually happening and it’s heartbreaking.
