LoriAnn and Robbie and all the family we are very saddened at the loss of Cricket. Will always remember her growing up and spending a week or two at Aunt Ruth's and enjoyed going fishing with Cricket and her family growing up. Rest assure that God has this and will help you through a most difficult time. Our Prayers are with you all during this time. She will be missed by all.
