Carissa is a little girl full of love and happiness. She has that magical ability to talk to anyone, about anything, and leave them smiling. She loves singing, dancing, shopping, dressing up, and horses.
Carissa has taken swim lessons for many years. She is a great big sister. She is responsible and smart. We are confident in her swim abilities and know she’s capable of making good, right decisions.
Why tell you this? Because on August 28th, 2015, at 9 years old, Carissa passed away due to drowning. Even though she could swim. Even though she was smart. She drowned.
She didn’t have to.
