She played center for the Omaha Nighthawks women’s professional football team and was an active member of Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity, International.  She volunteered as a member of the Nebraska State Foster Care Review Board, Habitat for Humanity and numerous other organizations that focus on helping victims of domestic violence.

    Love you! You were so easy to talk to! You always made Theresa feel special and loved. You were one of her closest friends and I could’ve been more honored to get to know you. I’ll miss your sassy comments and friendly face! Thank you for being a wonderful friend and person! We will all miss you. Until we meet again.

    I still cannot believe your light got snuffed out way before it’s time. The past 100+ days without have been challenging and at times mind blowing – but while I’m disappointed and saddened we won’t be doing life on earth together anymore, I’m comforted knowing our mere seven years of sisterhood was valuable, deep and unwavering. This wasn’t apart of the “plan” Cupcake, but I’m sure you knew that. I miss you terribly and I think of you often. Love you always.

    For flowers that bloom about our feet, for tender grass so fresh and sweet, for song of bird and hum of bee, for beauty of all living things, Father in heaven we thank thee.

    Although we can’t be there personally, our love and spirit are with you always. We will always cherish our time in Monterey that we got to spend together. May you lovingly be wrapped in the soft fabric of the universe. All our love.

    Vivian, dearest one… you are so missed. Your passion for life, your brilliant mind, and your wide-open heart are an inspiration to all who know and love you. I’ll be seeing you again – until then hugs and love from your “Auntie”

    Vivian’s spirit and sass was so bright. I will forever cherish our friendship. Vivian and I met for a reason and we were meant to be friends forever. I am hopeful that I can represent her spirit and dedication to others.

    All my love to you all for happy memories and fun stories of your caring, compassionate Carolyn.

    It was a lovely service. I’m so thankful we had an opportunity to spend quality time with Vivian and Conor all those years ago in Monterey. Though we are separated by states and miles, we are deeply grateful to all of you because we are connected as family through your amazing dad. Thank you for sharing Vivian and Gramps with us. We hope to spend more time with each of you in the future to connect even further. Love from your CA family. Emily, Kevin, Elise, Finn, Mia, and Andrew Desai
