We didn’t know the power you held until we saw the way our son looked at you. He loved you deeply, purely and unconditionally. For that, we loved you too. You were our daughter. We admired you. You worked hard for yourself and for Ethan and Doug because you knew what you wanted wouldn’t come without a fight. You treated each day as a new adventure and watching you make a difference in the lives of others was truly incredible. Now as we sit weeping, there are no words to express how much we are hurting, not only selfishly for ourselves but for all whose lives you touched, especially Ethan and Doug. Thank you for coming into our lives. We love you.
