Cassie, I've taken quite some time to form the thoughts to leave you a memorialized reflection and I'm still struggling to find the words. We met on a cold winter day in January at the WVSP. You were so full of life and always had a smile on your face. Your laugh was contagious and always brightened anyone who was stuggling's day. You're extremely missed. Your determination was inspiring and I pushed harder everyday because you did. I still can't believe you're gone and wish so badly that I could've taken your place.
