This is not an obituary.
This is not a goodbye, nor is it a reminiscence.
This is a celebration.
Of a life well lived.
I celebrate as one of the countless who were nudged towards wherever we wanted to go, thanks to you. I celebrate because the happiest days of my life could not have been the same without you.
Your easy smile, your fierce pride, and your undying belief in tradition was an inspiration, though you never meant it to be.
I celebrate the life of the greatest personification of Stephania that I had the privilege to meet.
You will be missed.
