Five years ago today the world lost a little bit of light and wonder when Olivia died. All of those who love her are left missing a part of our hearts and for me, as her mom, a piece of my very soul.
There are no words that can even begin to to explain what her loss has meant to her friends and family. We miss her smile, her wicked sense of humour and her laugh. We miss her kindness, her compassion and her ability to make each and every person she ever encountered feel like they were special.
Her desire to help others was known by all her friends. Olivia I had a unique ability to look past the shell and see the hearts of others. The qualities this amazing young lady possessed were unequalled and made her one-of-a-kind.
Today, April 3rd, I must acknowledge her death but more importantly, I will acknowledge her life. Olivia lived her life to the fullest, with unbridled passion, intense devotion and unmatched love.
Over the years Olivia taught me many things. She taught me patience, she taught me tolerance, she taught me forgiveness and she taught me what true love feels like.
She was my most precious gift and I am grateful every day I was chosen to be her mom 💝
