Cali’s Gift Application

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 addictions took hold of her and her life.
