    I always called her and will always be “my hero.” We never met in person but, she was a person who showed so much courage and pushed me to know my pains were very minimal and to appreciate more of the blessings I already had. I will cherish the many conversations we had and keep her memory close to my heart. She left a legacy for her family to be proud of and now is pain-free in heaven and always let me know how important family is. To my hero, this is not goodbye, but a see you later. I am very sorry and send my condolences to the Slager family. I pray for your strength and comfort in this difficult time.
