Eliana loved swimming, dancing, singing, tumbling, and playing with her sisters and brother. She wanted to be a ballerina. Above all, she loved pink, purple, sparkley, flowery, fancy, beautiful things. She loved and felt deeply, and was loved beyond measure. She was a sweet, strong, independent, smart, and sassy girl.
