She was preceded in death by a brother, Kenneth Gard; grandparents, Kimberly Kay Parrett and Joyce and Lawrence Gard; and an uncle, Christian Hines.

“Braveekay” or “Toody” as her parents called her was the light of her family’s life. She made anyone around her smile and laugh. She loved her brothers and sister with a love that was bigger than love. She showed her parents what love is completely. She loved to listen to music, dance, and try to play musical instruments. She was the bravest girl, and she lived up to her name. She left footprints on the hearts of everyone she met. She will be missed more than words can explain and thought of everyday by her momma, dadda, and bub bub until they meet with her again.

Visitation will be conducted from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Monday, February 13, 2023 at Full Gospel Holiness Church, 1109 W 10th St, Connersville, IN 47331.
