PADILLA, Bambi Carlene, 37, of Surprise, Arizona, passed away on February 27, 2017. "Her wings were ready, our hearts were not, loved forever, remembered in every thought." (Author: The Elmore Family) Bambi is survived by her beloved parents, Randy Joe Elmore, and Tamela June Elmore; her loving brother and sister, Randy Joe Jr. Elmore, and Mendi Angelina Elmore; nieces and nephews, Serina Fisher, Trayvin Elmore, Trystan Ruebel, and Angelina Ruebel; and great-niece, Summer Fisher. "I'm Free. Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free. I'm following the path God laid for me, I took his hand when I heard him call, I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day. To laugh, to love, to work and play. Tasks left undone must stay that way, I found that place at the close of the day. If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss; Ah yes, these things, I too, will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life's been full, I savored much; good friends, good times, a loved one's touch. Perhaps my time seems all too brief; don't lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted me now, He set me free." (Author: Unknown). Arrangements are under the direction of Surprise Funeral Care, Surprise, Arizona.

To our family and friends, the loss of a child, no parent should ever have to bare. When you lose a child it is as if your heart is ripped out of your body.
When a child is taken from you, there is no way to describe the pain; there is no way to describe the loss; there's no way to tell anyone what you feel.
Please understand that losing Bambi was losing a part of our lives, that will never ever be replaced. Loss like this, there is no coming back from. You will never understand the pain we feel until you are we're we are.
I want to thank you for all of your prayers and thank you for your continued love.
Sincerely, Randy and Tammy.
