Last week the world lost a shining star. Someone who had defied the odds for so long, maybe I'd decided the experts just gotten something wrong, and that in fact she would be around for a long time to come. But no.
She was someone who squeezed more life and spirit into her two decades than most of us could manage in our entire, much longer lifespans. If we could all just be a little bit more like this little star then life would be a much livelier experience.
And now that this short life is over, this wonderful young lady lives on as a bunch of smiling memories, like bright yellow sunflowers, which will always stay in the hearts and minds of the incredibly large number of people she touched with her life, love, and laughter.
