Horsey, Mary L.

December 12, 2005

There has never been a child more loved than MARY LYNDELL HORSEY, born October 10, 1997 and died December 9, 2005. Liddy, 8, a true gift from God, made everyone smile. She possessed a remarkable zest and curiosity for life. She loved being held by her dad and exchanging sweet kisses with her mom. Always in perpetual motion, her life was filled with favorite activities; music, bike riding with Dad, swimming, boating and kayaking at the lake. She loved attending John B. Cary Elementary School, where she was enthusiastically embraced by students and staff. Attending summer camp and participating in music group and art activities were highlights of Liddy's school years. She truly lived every moment of life exhibiting strength and courage that made her an inspiration to others. Eternally loved and cherished by her parents Karen Manning Horsey and Thom Horsey. Liddy also leaves her bereaved grandparents, Patricia and Daniel (deceased) Horsey and Mary Grace Manning and Jack Manning; aunts, uncles and cousins, Tim (Karen), Tyler and Emma Horsey, Pam (Joe) and Katie Troy, Susan Davis (Sean Zentner) Amanda, Hunter and Camille, Melissa (Steve), Jordan and Hudson Gentile, Maureen (Paul), Zoe, Shane and Aidan Miczak, John Manning and Jennifer Shiner. Liddy will be both missed and remembered by many other friends and relatives across the country and in England. Karen and Thom gratefully express their deepest gratitude to the dedicated and loving staff of Greater Richmond ARC, who enabled Liddy to live life to her fullest potential. The kindness, caring and compassion of neighbors and friends who loved and supported Liddy throughout the many stages of her life will never be forgotten. They also wish to thank the staff of the MVC Pediatric Hemotology/Oncology Clinic, along with the nurses and staff of MVC's Pediatric Unit for their caring and support of Liddy. The family will receive friends Monday December 12 from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 P.M. at the Bliley Funeral Homes' Central Chapel, 3801 Augusta Ave, Richmond, VA., and at 12 noon Tuesday, in the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart. In lieu of flowers, tributes in memory of Liddy may be made to the Ladybug Fund of the Greater Richmond ARC, 1901 Westwood Ave., Richmond, VA., 23227 or the Cornelia de Lange Foundation (www.cdlsusa.org).
