I'll never forget the first day I met Halle and I will also always remember how special it felt told hold her. Here are a few things that come to mind when I think of the Halle I knew and loved! She was pure love and goodness and an angel on Earth. She was so brave and never complained. She worked tirelessly in therapy. She communicated so well to her loved ones and when I had the pleasure of getting a Halle smile or squeeze, it made my day! Halle was blessed with the most incredible family. Her dedicated parents amaze me with their continuous advocacy efforts, their never-ending love and care for Halle while also being actively involved in all of Anders and Evan's activities. Superheroes in my eyes! I witnessed the adoration her brothers had for her, and it was heart-warning. Halle was the luckiest to be a part of the Stevens/Ching family, Halle, thank you for being you and teaching us all so much. You will be sorely missed here on Earth and we'll meet again one day. I love you so much, Halle angel.

Hi Cat -- when I shared with my amazing human boss Casey Phillips, he asked that I also send peace and love to you and your family on behalf of The Walls Project. You have a special heart for children that reminds me of one of the most profound lessons of my life. "When we all agree to love the same child," we break down so many barriers. We are all sharing our love for Halle now and through you and your family we are bringing people from all over together in memory of an amazing human life. Peace and forever in our prayers.
