She shared a gleeful picture of Eva and conveyed how she felt stuck in a “constant cycle of denial and acceptance.” Keeping the internet eulogy brief, she added: “I wish I had Eva here now to refer to because she would have better words and know how to say what I don’t.”

Lila concluded the note, mentioning that as her family plans the next step forward, she would return online later to express how much her sister meant to her and “just how different the world will be without her.”
