From the moment Rhykin entered this world she became the center of her families' lives. She shared a special relationship with her Grandma Jennifer and loved to sleep in Grandma's bed more than her own. She loved 80's music, Beavis and Butthead, and long stroller rides. She hated REO Speedwagon and Jewel. She always had a smile on her face even in her suffering and cared about everyone else's needs ahead of her own, even though she definitely let you know what and when she wanted something. In her very short life, she touched the lives of so many.
Funeral services and burial were private. Friends may call at Wilson Funeral Home after 9 a.m. Tuesday. Visitation was held Tuesday, June 12, 2012 from 5-8 p.m. at Wilson Funeral Home in Kahoka with a Loving Thoughts of Rhykin by her Grandma Jennifer at Visitation.
Memorials in lieu of flowers were suggested to the family with checks made payable to Jennifer Ferguson-Hall.
