Sephora’s life, though short, was beautiful. She changed me and all who loved her. Her purpose was to bring people together. Her purpose was to share love with those who didn’t know love. Her purpose was to walk others through grief and tragedy, pain and suffering, and prove to others that despite what they’re going through, nothing is impossible. The rain clouds do disappear. The sun does shine again. Somewhere, there is always a rainbow waiting to greet you with a smile on the other side of the storm. Grief isn’t pretty…but when you’ve made it to the other side, the tears and memories are beautiful.
