          "I wouldn't know who I am without having known you. Your light burned so bright, you were so unique and could connect to any and every soul. Your natural beauty was rare and a sight to behold. You were my oldest and closest sister and friend, and while I deeply regret not having been able to push passed the wall that was built out of protection, I am thankful you don't have to live in pain anymore. You will be painfully and fondly missed every day I breathe."
          At this time her family will celebrate her life with a private service at the Allo Coolman Funeral Home in Escanaba with Fr. Rick Courier officiating.

  • "Desirae was one of my 4th grade students at Wells Elementary. What I remember most about Desirae was her creativity and artistic ability. She always added beautiful detail that was all her! I still use a pink bookmark that she made for me that year. It's the one I turn to most often when I read aloud to my class. As I tuck it between the pages of a book, I will continue to remember and honor Desirae's memory. I am so sorry for your loss. "

When I look into the eyes of the beautiful girl, I see nothing but kindness. She must have been a sweet sweet soul. I am so very sorry for your loss. So young to go home! I do know she had a great family though and my heart is with you all. "
