We shall always cherish your friendship and the memories it brought us. In your courageous fight, you were ever the teacher, showing us all how to be brave, how to be faithful and how to love. Your enthusiasm for life, your love for others and your gentleness are all lessons you left for us to learn. We will miss you dearly. - Brad, Mary-Margaret, Sarah and Katie
