Holly enjoyed cooking, baking and riding motorcycles. Her good friend Nate shares a story of Holly getting up and dancing on a motorcycle while she was riding it, he says it almost gave him a "heart attack." She could fall asleep while riding on the back of a motorcycle. Holly lived life to its fullest, she was fun, easy going, stubborn as hell and bullheaded. She was Nate's ABC (Ace Boon Coon) and evil little troll. "Fly High Holly"
She loved meeting people and walked to the beat of her own drum.
Nate continues to share that Holly was vertically challenged or better put "fun sized." She loved the color purple and "Ghost Orchid's.
Holly was a 33 year liver transplant survivor. Holly was a volunteer at MayDay, Inc. from Jan to May when she got so sick. She knew Jesus as her personal savior and was looking forward to being with her mom in heaven. She will leave her foot prints on all the heart's of those she touched.
