Davia, a beautiful and joyful girl with a fighting spirit who loved Kix, and music and peanut butter and jelly, faced the difficulty of heart disease with more bravery and smiles than anyone could ever hope for. Our time with her has been full of joy and laughter and we are thankful for being entrusted with her to fall in love with and adore.
She is lovingly missed by her mom and dad, Sean and Sandi Howard, her siblings, Kai, Destiny, Ryder and Magenta Howard, maternal grandparents, Charles Carter and Juli Carter both of Florida, paternal grandparents, Lisa and Mike Birr of California and Forrest Howard of Mississippi. Aunts and uncles, Stacia Howard, Dylan and Nikki Carter, Allyson Carter, Jesse Carter and Cory Carter also survive.
We all cannot wait to see you again.
