“This is my amazing, beautiful, funny, vibrant, loving, talented, smart and hardheaded princess mermaid Aquarius,” wrote her mother. “If you see this post scrolling by with her comment or just say to yourself  ‘I love you LAUREN’ because they say that souls can feel your love #rip.” 

The poignant words were accompanied by a photo loop of the little girl bouncing happily in a swimming pool.
