Kassandra “Kassie” Arielle Braun lived a vibrant life but also rejoiced in life’s simple pleasures. Like the simple and “little way” modeled by her chosen confirmation Saint Therese of Lisieux, the “Little Flower”.  Her life serves as an example for all of us to do little things with great love. Kassie embodied otherness versus selfishness and never met a stranger. In her short life, Kassie’s boundless soul eagerly traveled the world to touch as many people as she could with her joy and love. Like Kassie, we can give of our time, heart, treasure to help people in need of a smiling face, a warm meal, a hug, a roof over their head, a scholarship to travel the world and meet people far and wide and be an ambassador of love as Kassie was.
