A Teenage Life

This beautiful 19 year old was killed tragically in a car accident. A bright light that was extinguished in a brief moment, this free spirit loved her family and friends and the joys of nature. She had just graduated high school and was working in the florist department of the neighborhood grocery store. Her passion for flowers and beauty made her popular with her customers and co-workers. Her parents and brother knew that a traditional funeral would be a “downer” that she wouldn’t have wanted. Instead of a service in the chapel, they celebrated her life under a canopy on the side porch of the funeral home. Her friend and yoga instructor played several songs on the guitar that reflected the type of person she was and her mother, brother, a teacher and several close friends told stories and read poems. Everyone that attended was given a flower to brighten their day.

Her mother arranged this Celebration of Life and was held in Kansas City, MO.
