Death[]

On October 20, 1995, the day after her first birthday, she was experiencing a normal day at her daycare. That day was the day her parents were supposed to hold a birthday party for her because her father's parents took a day to come out of state. During the day, Carissa was laying in her crib when suddenly, the siderail had come apart at one end and separated on the other. She fell through it and, left there for hours without help, had suffocated. She was 1 year old. Due to this, her birthday party had to be turned into a funeral, and her daycare closed forever to probably avoid lawsuit. Carissa is buried in Bryant Cemetery in Saline County, Arkansas.
