What happened to this family was tragic. So they threw themselves at the tragedy of illiteracy.
How a beautiful child's legacy is making a difference for her community.
Essence K. Coprich was 7 years old when her life was cut short after a tire blew on the car she was riding in. Her 2-year-old cousin also died that day.
But the family turned that event into an engine to help people grow and learn and live better lives. What a wonderful way to remember someone.
It's an appropriate legacy to celebrate the life of one very special little girl named Essence — a girl who loved hugs.
