From her Mother:

L is for the light you shed around you

A is for its aura, bright as day

U is for the universe where I found you

R is for the radiance, of your way

E is for your eyes, alight with candor

N is for the now that is in your name

May life and fate fulfil your fondest aim.

We believe it is a blessing she is out of pain and her spirit is no longer trapped. We will think of her every day.
