Lacey Holsworth, otherwise known as 'Princess Lacey', has passed after becoming an inspiration to everyone with the help of her best friend, Adreian Payne.

The story of Adreian and Princess Lacey has become well known throughout the two years that they have known each other.  If you have missed it, you can catch up by clicking the link below.

The amazing story of friendship, courage and inspiration has come to a sad end.  The Instagram for Princess Lacey posted the following sad news early this morning.

 

Princess Lacey has achieved the ultimate victory. She now dances among angels.... The world is a better place because you were in it. Our hearts are broken. We love you Doll. Dance all night... Mommy and Daddy, Will, Mitchell, and Luke

Lacey had accompanied Payne along every step of his Senior season at MSU, and he had done the same for her, as she fought round after round with Cancer.

The last time they were seen together was at the NCAA dunk contest, when Payne had Princess Lacey give him a little luck before this amazing dunk.

There arent words to express the emotions that surround this amazing story. The joy, sympathy and sheer admiration we should all hold for this little girl is too great to describe.

I guess the only thing that I can think to say is, "Thank you." Thank you for being such an incredible example to millions of people in such a short period of time.

Don't worry about fighting back tears when thinking about Princess Lacey, but please make sure that some of those tears are tears of joy, celebrating the life she lead.
