Dalerie was an amazing, driven, loving, giving, gorgeous young lady taken way to soon. She loved spending each summer at the softball fields where her dad would coach her team each year. She loved family game night. Any time spent with her Love, Gabriel. She had a unique relationship with her Mom where she talked with her about everything (yes, everything), they were inseparable, most teens were out with friends, she preferred to hang out with Mom and had no shame of it. She loved and appreciated the time she spent with her grandparents. She had so many plans for her and her brother Ryan, she wanted to be the first to take him to a concert. She would comment on how she looked forward to watching Cody grow. She loved her "dreaded" workouts with Jessica. She loved music, especially Taylor Swift which she fulfilled a long time dream of seeing her in concert. She planned to become an RN, marry Gabriel and have 4 children with him. She was 18 but she had a vision of her life, it had all just started lining up. She had it all.
