This made me cry.

Did you read the sweet story of the 6-year-old girl who left notes for her family to find, after she succumbed to pediatric brain cancer?



Elena hid them in brief cases, ornament bags, dresser drawers. This amazing 6-year-old hid them in places that were obviously meant to be found later.

"The messages were addressed to her parents, her little sister, Gracie, her grandparents, even her great-aunt’s dog. Most carried simple variations on a theme: “I love you Mom Dad and Grace.” And most are decorated with her favorite symbol: a heart."
