"Cali was a beautiful, energetic, adventurous, helpful, wonderful child and young woman. Growing up was filled with a never ending desire to be active, always wanting to do something physical, and in particular anything outdoors. Despite the apparent normalcy of her life to many, hers was a conflicted and often contradictory life, with much happiness and many struggles. It was filled with both healthy activities and unhealthy addictions. Shortly after graduation, she chose a path of independence from her family and the steady support provided to her for her sobriety. Ultimately, her struggles and the addiction took hold of her, and her life. We honor Cali’s life through this gift of support to others, so that they know they are not alone.”
