In more recent events; five days ago, my co-worker/friend passed away, and her passing has immensely made an impact on all of us at work (we're a small group)and I personally am having a very difficult time accepting and realizing that she is gone.
Her name is Taliya Tandelier Nelson, born on March 3, 1979 from St. Louis, Missouri. She moved to California four years ago with big dreams for herself and managed to accomplish during her short stay here. She was a very independent gal, with a charm unlike any other person I've ever met. Her naivete was the cutest. Things that you and I take for granted, say like going to brunch on Sunday, was a whole new experience for her. She was so full of life, and wanted to experience so many things, but sadly that life was snipped short this past Sunday, when she lost her battle. It makes me terribly sad, and angry that her life was cut short in a matter of two weeks. How can someone so young, and so full of life, and full of dreams just be gone forever?

I miss her already...She will always remain in my heart, just as her unforgettable gregarious, unique laugh will forever be emblazoned in my mind. Thank you for all the memories Miss Taliya...farewell my dearest friend...
