Kenzie graduated from Lafayette in December of 2020 from Lafayette High School. She was the light of all of our lives and she had a heart of gold. In her 21 years on earth, she never met a stranger and would move mountains for ones she loved. Anyone who met Kenzie would always say how caring, helpful and sweet she was. That they could just tell by looking into her eyes that she was an amazing person. Since her passing, several people have reached out to us saying that even though they only met her once or just a few times, that she was so sweet, caring and had such a kind soul. Her family, loved ones and friends were truly blessed to have her in their lives.
From the moment her sweet baby girl Evee Ann was born she loved her with every fiber of her being. She was such an amazing Mom. She was an amazing mother and was so honored to be Evee’s Mom. She loved taking Evee to the park, taking her on drives, cuddling with her, taking a million pictures of and with her and telling her all about her great Granddaddy.
We would like to give a very special thank you to Carrie Lafoe Adkins for stopping at the accident and staying with our sweet Angel holding her hand and praying for her as she passed.
