In front of this holy shrine i prayed that with her youth and all the love from her family and friend that she will fight through this difficult period and will continue to enjoy such beautiful sunset as the one in front of me, that we so often take for granted. STAY STRONG BABY!!!... YOU HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE THINKING OF YOU ALWAYS.
