She loved peanut butter rice cakes and daisies and laughing. She loved the color purple and finding a great bargain on cute clothes. She loved our dog, Mack. She loved her friends and her career as an elementary school teacher. And most of all, she loved us. Her life motto was "Because Nice Matters." She implemented this principle into every single thing she did in her life. As an organ donor, she again demonstrated her selflessness. She is our light and inspiration, and now lives on in others.
