Alisha, thank you. Thank you for getting it. I am almost at a loss for words but I am so inspired by this. Despite what a horribly painful experience this is, I am certain your brother gave you a special sense of finding beauty in the world around you. Since you just shared it with me. Don’t ever lose that.

I wish you the best, and again, thank you.
