Strange Request

Now I know this may sound strange - but unfortunately John and I have to make the final arrangement soon for what we want to have on Rani's plaque so it is done in time for when my sister is here over Christmas.

We know what we want to say but want to put a small quote / poem (about 2 lines) on the bottom that sums our little girl up but we keep drawing a blank or it just doesn't sound right as we have to look at this for years to come and don't want to be frustrated by the wording...iykwim!!!

So if any of you have a nice quote / poem could you let me know...ALL HELP IS APPRECIATED

You do not know me, but I am a Mom of a daughter that had Biliary Atresia. I have followed Rani's story. I'm so sorry that her time on Earth ended way too soon. I found this quote and thought of you:
“We are one, after all, you and I, together we suffer, together exist and forever will recreate each other.”
Teilhard de Chardin
