Vanessa loved to laugh, and she had a laugh that made others laugh as well. She loved music, and did her same little dance to all the songs she liked. Which was rocking from side to side, snapping her fingers, and tapping her one little foot, all while laughing and smiling. Most people thought she was quiet; until you interrupted her favorite TV shows, then ears beware.
What you saw, was what you got with Vanessa. She was not a complicated person, but she was not afraid to tell you a piece of her mind, but she was still sweet as pie. She loved her family, and we loved her more!
