A message from Soleil's family
Barely one week after her last post, Soleil was admitted to the hospital again because of infections and severe respiratory problems. Despite the best medical care and her incredible determination, Soleil was unable to recover. With unbearable sorrow, we regret to inform her blogger friends that Soleil passed away two weeks ago. Our beloved daughter faced each day with optimism and great courage, and made every moment of her life count. Our hearts are broken as we will forever miss the richness that Soleil brought to our lives each and every day.
