Most of all she loved spending time with all of her family and friends. She is also survived by two puppies, three kittens, and her beloved ferret.

She was so full of life, so full of happiness, as if all of yours would vanish the second you were next to her. Someone with such beauty, on the inside and out, is a rare blessing in our lives. On that night, I know that the world lost its most beautiful blessing. Every moment with her was as near as perfect as perfection could be.”-Kaelob Miller Adam, Jules and Nin would like to thank everyone for all of the love.
