Those that were closest to Saige knew that she struggled greatly with depression and anxiety but all those that came in contact with her instantly liked her. Saige thought with her heart first. Her family, friends, complete strangers, and countless animals benefitted from her compassionate nature. She would welcome strangers into her house for shelter. She would take the time to offer them food, money, and conversation. She had a huge heart.
