Natasha Maria Leigh Holmes Beloved elder daughter of Ken and Suzanne, sister of Marissa, passed away at home in San Francisco in the arms of her parents. Natasha challenged a merciless brain tumor for five years with dignity and grace.
Natasha was a gentle soul, gen- erous to the many people she loved, with an artist's eye and empathy for anyone she con- sidered vulnerable. She mod- eled resilience as her beautiful body endured the ravages of chemo, radiation and surger- ies. She taught us to forgive people if they didn't live up to our hopes and that good manners also meant thanking the phlebotomist who had to use her single battered vein to draw blood. We miss you des- perately, our sweet Natasha.
The family wishes to thank friends and neighbors, the staff at UCSF and Holy Name school and church. For more information: www.firstgiving. com/suzanneleigh
