I am so heartbroken for you and your beautiful family. I have the most amazing, special memories with your mom. I was so lucky to have shared so much time with her, she was truly magical and special unlike any other person I have ever met. She made me feel so special as she did to everyone around her. Being with her was like a celebration of music, kindness, joy and love all at once. She was so magical, authentic and caring. She taught me so much and continues to make me want to be a mother, daughter, sister and friend the way she was. Sending my sincerest condolences, love you Alli.
