It’s guest bloggers Riley (Carley’s Big Sister) and John (Carley’s Boyfriend). This time my guest blog is not one that anyone is going to want to read.
After a hard week in the hospital, this morning Carley had passed away. She left memories and a legacy that will live on forever in our hearts and minds. She never quit fighting until her last breathe; she showed more strength than anyone thought was possible. Unfortunately, this disease is not one to discriminate the evil from the good, the greedy from the giving, the cold-hearted from the kind-hearted. She was nothing less than an angel that spread her smile, joy, and charismatic nature to everyone around her. There was nothing she would have wanted more than for the people she love to be happy. So reflect and reminisce how she touched you and the inspiration, bravery and joy she brought into your life. Her life may have been short, but the lives she was able to touch and inspire is unparalleled to some people that have lived vast amounts of years .
On top of being an inspiring soul, Carley was a sister, daughter and girlfriend whose unconditional love will never be replaced. This situation is one that is hard to talk about for anyone that had been close to her, and anyone of us could go on for hours, but the words would still never be enough to describe and honour this remarkable and indescribable person. This may be the last post on this blog, to leave her memories and words untouched. However, we are in the midst of creating a foundation to continue and honor her legacy, journey, and fight to inspire youth and people of all walks of life to keep fighting and find a cure to this disease that has taken another angel.
May she be blissful in your memories and always with you in your heart.
