"She never mentioned it, but it’s the kind of thing she’d do,” Athena’s father, Dean, told the UK’s Daily Mail. “She was a very spiritual person, she’d go on about stuff that I could never understand – she was so clever."

Here are a few of the heartfelt messages Athena left behind:

“Happiness depends upon ourselves.”

“Maybe it’s not about the happy ending, maybe it’s about the story.”

“The purpose of life is a life of purpose. ”

“The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra. Happiness is a direction not a destination. ”

“Thank you for existing. Be happy, be free, believe, forever young. ”

“You know my name, not my story. ”

“You have heard what I’ve done, but not what I’ve been through. ”

“Love is like glass, looks so lovely, but it’s easy to shatter. ”

“Love is rare, life is strange, nothing lasts and people change. ”

“Every day is special, so make the most of it. You could get a life-ending illness tomorrow so make the most of every day. ”

“Life is only bad if you make it bad. ”

“If someone loves you then they wouldn’t let you slip away no matter how hard the situation is. ”

“Remember that life is full of ups and downs, without the downs the ups don’t mean anything. ”

“I’m waiting to fall in love with someone I can open my heart to. ”

“Love is not about who you can see spending your future with it’s about who you can’t see spending your life without. ”
