  • You are so loved, Olivia. The journey you shared with us is never going to be forgotten. Your dedication to growth, development, and positive change, never shying away from truth and honesty, will continue to be an inspiration and a practice I aspire to. May you dance with the stars in absolute, unfettered joy.

  • I knew Olivia through social media only (I live in Italy) and I got the news just now.
    She was a kind soul that went through way too many struggles, but still she always had a word of encouragement for everyone.
    I hope with all my heart that she has now found the peace she deserves. Olivia will be forever loved by our community.
    I offer you my most sincere condolences.

  • The world is a dimmer place without her light to brighten our day.

  • I never personally knew Olivia but I saw her posts on a mutual facebook group all the time and I always took the time to read and sympathize with them. Seeing her pass made my heart sink. May she rest in power.

  • I send my deepest condolences. May her kind soul rest in peace.

  • Absolutely crushed to hear of Olivia’s passing. She was an inspiration. My sincerest, heartfelt condolences to all who are mourning this terrible loss.

  • In a sprawling universe of unceasing beauty, the living mind is the lone appreciator of the art that is existence. Stars bloom and die with no one to witness their cosmic performance. We are a fortunate few gifted with the ability to be the eyes and ears of the universe itself, to appreciate its glory and ache of its tragedies. It is unfortunate that Olivia’s cosmic dance should come to a close so soon in her life, but we are fortunate to have witnessed her. Imagine how tragic it would be if we hadn’t. While her passing leaves an empty space, a wound on many hearts, it is a blessing among blessings that the world was ever permitted to play host to her at all. We are fortunate to have known her, and I hope that wherever she is now – she is safe and free and witnessing the most spectacular parts of the universe.

  • Oh sweet girl, you touched my life only briefly, but so very deeply. My heart feels crushed by the news of your loss. You are a gem and I look forward to seeing you in the stars.

  • I’m so sorry for your loss. I only knew her online but she was a bright star. May she be at peace.

  • I just found out that she had passed away through one of the Facebook groups that Liv was a part of. I’m so sorry to hear that she left this world far too soon. She was loved by folks all over the world. Sending love and light from the U.S.
