Ricky and Courtney . He loved his baby girl
When you came into my life you made me complete. I thought we would have the rest of our lives together to do the things we had planned. I will miss the twinkle in your eyes when you looked at me and the smile you gave me. But most of all I am going to miss our arms wrapped around me. I will treasure the memories we had together for the rest of my days. Until we meet again and are together forever I will always be your Babydoll. . I will love you always.
