Adaline Buttercup Latasha Bowstring

Adaline Buttercup Latasha Bowstring

Adaline 'Buttercup' Latasha Bowstring, 11 months young, began her spiritual journey unexpectedly on May 12, 2014 at Essentia Hospital in Deer River, Minnesota. She was born the daughter of Samantha Bowstring and Mark Reyes, Jr. on May 17, 2013 in Bemidji, Minnesota.

Adeline loved to play with her big brother Zach and big sister Valentine. She loved pow wow and hip hop music and whenever she heard it she had to dance. Adaline was just learning to stand up on her own and was learning to talk. Her favorite words were 'Hi' and 'No'. Her favorite foods were fruit, especially cantalope and watermelon, cookies, Cheetos, donuts and she liked to 'gink' strawberry milk. She loved her Grandma B. so much. Adaline was a happy, sweet baby, like a 'Buttercup' who had so much life in her. She was taken from us far too early. We did not have enough time to enjoy her and our time with her, although short, was very precious. She will forever be in our hearts. We will miss you and always love you Adaline.

Adaline, you are an angel
