Cassandra (Griffin) Dorsey

April 1, 1967 ~ April 14, 2018 (age 51)

"It must have been cold there in my shadow, To never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine, that's your way. You always walked a step behind.

So I was the one with all the glory, While you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name for so long. A beautiful smile to hide the pain.

Did you ever know that you're my hero, And everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle, For you are the wind beneath my wings"
