My God. Look at this beautiful girl. Dead at 17. Prom night car crash? No. Drug overdose? Hardly. "On the advice of her family doctor" she received the Gardasil vaccination in an effort to protect herself from HPV and the small chance that the HPV could lead to cervical cancer.

She loved SpaghettiO's, pepperoni, lilies, listening to her iPod and making her pals laugh. In her senior yearbook, she wrote, "The best things in life aren't things, they're friends."
Now that's the quote chiseled into her gravestone.
