Nayori was a beautiful baby girl, inside and out, bringing sunshine and happiness to her family. She had a smile that would melt your heart and was the snapchat queen. Everyone loved her adorable photos, and she was so photogenic! Sweet baby Nayori was an extremely happy baby, never fussed and very easy going. Her protective older brothers loved her big time giving her hugs and trying to get her to smile during playtime. She was playful and especially liked to play with and cuddle her Minnie Mouse. Nayori’s bright light will never be forgotten, and her memory will be carried in her family’s hearts forever.
