"When I was at my lowest point in life and couldn't see any light at the end of the tunnel you helped me through and gifted me with your little princess K and I want to thank you so much for that you have left us all gifted with this beautiful baby and we will always remember you through her.

"We will make sure she remembers how special you were and how much you loved her.
