Mai Lily Vang was born on April 5, 1990 in California when her life was taken on Sunday morning of March 21, 2021. She was just about to turn 31 when the tragic event occurred. She leaves behind her children and many friends and family members.
Mai mainly went by the name of "Lily" and she enjoyed spending time with her friends and family. Her favorite hobby includes designing and decorating nails which she does for living by working for a nail salon. In our family, she brought us all together with all her warm home cooked meals. Lily had the biggest heart. Her laughter was contagious and she always made the people around her laugh and smile. She was the type of person who would always give more than what she had, and welcomed everyone with open arms. She was a modest person and was always willing to help anyone out whenever she could. In Grey’s anatomy, there’s a saying of a “go-to person” that person is someone you can never get mad at, someone you cannot live without, someone you can always go to for everything, and someone who you know will always support you. Lily was that person for us all. She always lent her shoulder for us even though she herself was going through problems. She allowed all of us to shed tears and feel normal. She allowed all of us to know that it’s okay to not be okay. We all will definitely miss her hugs and laughter. Her dedication as a mother and her love for her four beautiful children can never be replaced. To Lily, her wish was to always have a baby girl as she had three straight pregnancies with boys that had complications. At last her wishes were granted, and both her and the baby were healthy. But unfortunately, she is unable to see her only baby girl grow. Coming up on April 5th, it would have been her 31st birthday. And although she isn’t here with us to celebrate it, she will forever be in our hearts as we will celebrate her wonderful life.
