"Every breath is a second chance"
Samantha Ann Grover, 30, born on October 5th, 1988 in Exeter, NH passed away gracefully and peacefully with her family by her side on Wednesday, April 24th after a long and courageous battle against Cystinosis. She resided in Fruitland Park, FL at her time of passing but spent most of her life in Epping, NH. Samantha's loving family and friends loved and supported their "Angel". Samantha flooded her family and friends with her positive attitude throughout her Cystinosis battle knowing that "Every breath is a second chance" and that she was committed to, in her words, "Just Keep Swimming".
Samantha lit up a room with her infectious smile and laughter, bringing light and love to all that knew her. Samantha inspired so many people. The people she knew and met described her as a superstar, fighter, kind and strong; along with crazy, humorous, loving, a sweet soul and strong in her faith. Samantha has departed this life to a place where she will be embraced by her Holy Father, free of any pain and suffering.
She leaves behind a large and loving family.
