About the Book

This book was also a dream of hers; not to be famous or to sell a million copies, but for the purpose of having something for the generations after her and those closest to her to share and reminisce. The inspiration for this book is for those that miss her more than she will ever know. She was taken from us way too soon, but her words can live on through this book...
