"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen." *Elisabeth Kubler-Ross ~ Maya Angelou #RIP beautiful Soror# #Ivybeyondthewall
