For what it's worth, she probably made the most famous vanlife story ever. I truly hope that the vanlife community will memorialize her forever. Obviously you don't want to see it turn out this way, but it did and the reason it did was because she chased her dream and followed her passion. That needs to be lifted up and highlighted IMO. In a day an age where young people are often shot down and put down for being lazy, unmotivated, emotional, etc... this person chased her dream. She did her own thing and at the end of the day, she actually did give her life to achieve her greatest goal and vision. That is something.
I gotta go..
