Our paths crossed in high school, and I always knew you to be a delightful human being. You simply lit up any room you entered.
I believe you were a rare gift to this world. You were the kind of person who celebrated, supported, and loved others so well. You were the kind of person whose mere presence allowed others to shine their own light brighter. Through brilliance, joy, selflessness, and intentionality, you made the world a better place, every day.
While I wish you would have had a bit more time, I am thankful that so many had the opportunity to know you. We are all better for it.
