Dear family and friends, until now we did not know how important it would be for us to tell you of our daughter. Acknowledgment of our child's short life may be upsetting to you. You may not know exactly what to say. And that's okay. You can help us through this difficult time by letting us talk about our sorrow when we feel the need, allowing us to cry when we need to and not pretending that everything is okay...when it's not. No response to this announcement is asked of you; we only want to thank you for listening to us. With your love and support we can be strong and have hope for a bright and happy future. Rejoice and remember Jaycee Ashlyn Horsley.

Graveside service was Sat., July 24, 10 a.m., Price City Cemetery under the direction of Mitchell Funeral Home.

The family would like to thank all those who have sent flowers and food, we appreciate you all so much.
