Doing for others, standing for what you believe in, and inspiring others to do the same, is a legacy we can all aspire to. Our thoughts are with you all.

My mother was a trailblazer, who stood up for what she believed in. She provided a model for me to speak and do, unapologetically. She leaves a legacy of doers, believers and trailblazers.

I will especially remember my mother for all the good she did in the world and for all she did for others throughout her entire lifetime. And I'll always be thankful for all she did for me! Love and peace...
