Shane, a security guard and jack-of-all-trades musician, loved to watch Zoe strum his guitar, which is decked out in stickers she liked. He’d watch her do the "Chicken Dance” while she giggled along with her audience.
Carrie and Shane also kept a special cabinet with empty boxes for Zoe, who took after her super-organized mother and liked to arrange and rearrange its contents.
Most of all, Zoe’s parents will remember her smile and her love. Described as a "little angel” to her parents and grandparents, all her family said they can do now is take that literally.
"I just hope she’s looking down on us right now,” Carrie said, "and smiling and laughing. Because that’s what she’d be doing right now if she were still here.”
