Calis Gift

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.
