Riley Mark Dahlberg, 3, of Wahpeton, ND died Monday, November 6, 2006, in an automobile accident.
He was welcomed into the world by Blake and Christina Dahlberg on June 30, 2003 at 1:37 p.m. in Fairmont, MN. He weighed 8 lbs. 14 oz. and was 23 inches long.
Riley gave us so much joy in the short time he was here and was taken away from us too soon. He was the perfect little boy, always wanting to play outside, sword fight, or just roughhouse. He would be able to get out of trouble with a quick smile and a "that's okay?, or "you're just kidding?. Our Little Buddy loved to read books with mom and dad, play games with his sisters, put puzzles together on his own, and was only getting started at toughening up his little brother. His smile would always brighten up any situation and his giggle was the most heart-lifting sound in the world. He loved and was adored by his little brother and big sisters. We will never forget our Smiley Riley and look forward to when we can see him again.
