I always valued the tight bond that Natalie and her mom had. Anytime I was around her she remembered my name and was always welcoming. She lived life to the fullest and was always the life of any party. I watch her treat Natalie's friends like her own and Christina Fankell and I always wished that we could have a mom like her. She will be truly missed by everyone. My thoughts and prayers are with Natalie and her family.
