Abree “The Baby” Glory fulfilled her purpose on earth in the short ten months here with her loved ones, she was born in the wintery month of January 8th, 2020, sharing the same birthdate with her maternal grandpa, Dewey, and Elvis Presley. Little did we know that she would touch so many lives, her smile would light up the whole room bringing with her blessings to all she encountered. We lost our little darling on November 11, 2020, Abree “The baby, she’s such a pretty lady” was the youngest of three girls, she was affectionally nicknamed “AB Baby” by her sister Mireya, a kaale’s girl, she was mom’s “Calm in the Storm”, a niece, a granddaughter, and now our little angel.
Abree was tremendously loved by her momma and dadda, her aunties, uncles, kaale’s, and all her cousins. She is a member of the Big Lodge Clan and child of Ties the Bundle, she made her home in Billings with her mom and sisters, she would make her way by crawling to everyone and eating off their plates, she loved chocolate, and she would growl as if she was the most scariest person. She was beginning her first steps of life, we looked forward to watching her grow and learning new things every day, most importantly mom, sisters and dad will miss her dance moves while watching “Cocomelons” and “Trolls 2” that would run throughout the day, never tiring of the movie. She hardly cried unless she needed her paci, bottle, or a diaper change, an easy caring baby for mom. She loved to cuddle throughout the day, one of her favorite position was to get as close as she could to mom. AB Baby would get so excited when she notices auntie CeCe was in the room, her eyes would light up and say “hey” and crawl as fast as she could to get her hugs. Abree was to receive her Indian Name on her 1st birthday by great-grandmother Lydia Birdinground. She knew she was loved by all.
