    I’m a novice at only two ro three of her many endeavors, a true testimony to her parents and her curious nature.
    So beautiful yet left us so young.
    I’m sure she has many other fortunes yet to seek.
    Eventually, the thought of her loss being fresh will eventually be replaced with a smile on your face as you remember her.
    Bless the family.
