    I am so very sorry for the loss of such a beautiful soul… While I never met her, I have heard beautiful stories of her and how she showed up in the lives of people she cared about. As you mourn for her passing from this world, may you all be comforted by the memories of the love she shared with you in your lives… May she continue to live on through all who loved her.
