Lexi had an enormous zest for life. She greeted each day and every person she was in contact with smiles and hugs. Her grandmother recalls countless hugs each day with many I love you's from her. She let those around her know how much she loved them all.
She exuded a total inner happiness a sense of wonder of the world around her. Her thirst for learning amazed those around her. She was bright and witty and a beautiful soul. She also let those around her know she was a princess and she truly was in our hearts and minds.
Her aunt Chandra loved letting her play dress up with her jewelry and painting her nails when she would sleep over with her sister. She enjoyed playing with her cousins Jacob and Michael. She was a favorite of her uncle Bill who enjoyed many meals and cookies with her.
