She was never afraid to speak the un­speak­able, most of­ten it was at the ab­so­lute wrong time, but then again when is it ever “the right time.” She had a heart as big as the world. All lives that were touched by this most hum­ble per­son was bet­ter for it. She loved talk­ing, work­ing on the wa­ter, and cock­tails, but she got the most joy out of life help­ing oth­ers.
