Riley was only 11, but she taught many people how to face life, even when she was losing her battle with cancer. She and her parents exemplified their faith, strength, and positive attitude during the many crises they faced. Riley may be gone, but her legacy will live on forever. Zach Tucker, Riley’s best friend, accepted the FSN-ENC Heart in Memory of Riley.
