"It breaks my heart that you didn't get to accomplish all the wonderful things in life that we used to talk about non stop at work (like) all the travel plans, becoming a nurse like your big sister," she said.

"But I was and still am proud of the beautiful person and the beautiful soul you grew into."

Amelia Toohey said "I was so lucky to have spent the last few weeks catching up with you and the endless laughs we shared until I was in tears with my stomach aching."
