Annika Lorraine Qualley was born March 30, 2011 to Tammy Qualley in Minneapolis, MN and lived in West Fargo with her mother and sister, Aubrey, along with her grandma and papa. Annika loved life! She enjoyed giving Eskimo kisses, bubbles, coloring, singing, calling GG on the phone and saying, "GG come play Barbies with Anni", Doc McStuffin, playing with and letting go of balloons, wrestling with her sister, playing with her Ipad and Buster. She especially liked to go to Auntie NahNahs.
Annika was full of energy and always busy. She didnt let the trials of her illness slow her down and was always a comfort to her family during the difficult times.
