    Mallory was not just any ordinary young lady. She was a amazing and wonderful young lady and friend. She was always there for her friends and family, and knew how to brighten the room and make you laugh. Even when you were in a bad mood she was always there for me whenever I was down and crying even when we wanted to dance on the tables at church and act goofy. She was right with us that means a lot to me. I was honored to have her as my best friend and she will definitely be missed. The news of her passing last year really broke my heart because she was awesome and now I know that she’s up in heaven, with her heavenly father, looking down at us with a smile I love you, Mall And I will see you soon
