Who knew someone so little could create a love so vast, from the very moment we saw you we knew we would be in love forever. You created a bond between the people who got to hold you, never met you, who prayed for you and were affected by your heart and soul. We will forever miss you.
In addition to her parents of Newport, she is survived by brother, Jayden Schaefer also of Newport; paternal grandparents, Donald and Roberta Dunton of Belfast; MeGramma, Lisa Nickerson of Rockland; PooPa, Steven Nickerson; auntie, Tayler both of Belfast; and maternal grandfather, Tom Schaefer of Orrington. She was predeceased by her paternal grandmother, Gayle.
