Her vibrant smile and personality were a testament to all of us that no matter what life throws in the way; Love and Kindness can overcome. Her battle in the end was overshadowed by her willingness and presence of mind to make everyone else around her at peace. In true fashion, she put us before her, even in her most challenging times.
