Rochester, NY - 9/24/96 - 1/10/18
On January 10th a Beautiful Soul was released back into the Universe.
Willow is the daughter of Douglas (Walter) Pickard and Julieanne Latone Arcuri, Sister of Ashley Pickard and a graduate of Gates Chili where she is known for her artwork and volunteerism. Willow and her father share a passion for music. She squeezed so much "living" into her short lifetime...we all should remember to do the same.
Her wonderful Spirit remains with all her family, friends, doctors, nurses, researchers, and strangers who fondly call themselves "Willow's Warriors". We all walked with her thru her fight against Fibrolamellar Hepatocellular Carcinoma. We can't thank them enough for all their cards, love, kindness, support, thought, prayers, food, flowers and hugs as we navigate this new timeline without Willow in it. We will gather at a future time to celebrate her life.
Willow Tree wisdom: "Life is a series of a thousand tiny miracles. Notice them!"
