I believe some people come into your life for a reason. Our family was blessed to meet Libby Cope.
Libby had just graduated from high school, when she was diagnosed with a rare salivary gland cancer. She completed her treatment, and all her scans were clear. Nine years later, she found out the cancer had returned.
Libby was compassionate and caring; kindness was her way of life. She was thoughtful, joyful, and wise beyond her years. She loved baseball, playing animal crossing, track & field, traveling the world, beach combing, Disneyland, playing at the park and her three cats. Family and friends were essential to her, and she showed up to every important event for everyone in her life.
“She really touched so many people in a positive way, she was smiling and loving right up to the end.”
– Libby’s Mom, Pamela
A brief, but incredible life.
Thank you, Libby for sharing your beauty both inside and out.
“And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that counts.I t’s the life in your years.”
