The 16-year-old passed away on Jan. 2nd.

Savannah's story inspired many people to be brave and strong around the globe.

Savannah was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma in the Summer of 2016.

She started treatment right away, but the cancer ended up spreading.

Family, friend, members of the Jeep community and everyone who wanted to show their love and support for Savannah gathered at Christian House of Prayer in Copperas Cove for her memorial services.

Makenzy Lewis had been friends with Savannah since the 4th grade.

"She was a person who walked in a room and everybody would light up," Makenzy said.

"She would bring everybody together as one and she never ever had strangers she always had friends."

Tears and laughter filled the church as everyone remembered the good times and memories they shared with Savannah.

“Her little tiny self would jump over the couches just to make us laugh," Makenzy said.

"She took me to her hospital prom it was the best memory of her that I had."

In her last days she wished for things like her house to be decorated, snow and to see Christmas. Things she could enjoy with her loved ones that surrounded her.

At her services, Savannah left a gift for everyone to take.

Those who attended were able to take snowflakes made just for Savannah.

Although everyone will miss Savannah her spirit will live on forever.

Her family and friends want everyone to continue sharing her story.

Julie Moser with Pink Warrior Angels always wants people to remain Savannah Strong.

"If you don’t ever think you are strong enough remember to be savannah strong," Moser said.
