Kambrie was "her daddy’s girl and loved to ride anywhere with him and the boys especially up to the land riding horses. She was her momma’s big helper in the kitchen and with the little girls. She brought such joy to us all and there is a hole in our family until we get her back. She was simply the perfect little girl." the obituary stated. "Our hearts are broken but, we know she would want us to celebrate the wonderful life we had with her. Every day was a gift, and we can’t wait until we are reunited with our sweet, spunky, happy, driven little angel."



 

Her dad shared an emotional message on Facebook remembering his daughter and even shared a dozen pictures with her. In the post he wrote: Heaven gained the perfect angel today. She was the best all around girl. I don’t know what I’ll do without her... Thank you for your thoughts, texts and prayers. Love my Kam Kam...Can’t wait to see you again. I’ll Love you forever. I know I’ll see you again!! Please continue to pray for us. This family will need it!!! She was the BEST. Families are forever!!! Her funeral was held at Malad LDS Stake Center on Saturday.



 

Kambrie went to Malad Elementary School and loved all her teachers there as well as her friends of all ages. "She loved to dance and worked hard in school because she was a little perfectionist. She always seemed older than she was and wanted to grow up so fast. Perhaps she knew she needed to fit it all in," her obituary noted. "Her happy countenance shown about her always and she gave everyone the best hugs!"
