Paige Nicole Thompson, 33, was born Feb. 5, 1982, in Bryan, Texas, and passed away on April 22, 2015.

Paige was an incredible friend, a loving mother to her Great Dane daughter Sadie, a tireless advocate for LGBT equality as a leader for the Human Rights Campaign, and could never say no to an outdoor adventure.

Funeral services were held on April 29, at City on a Hill Church in Fort Worth, attended by those who were lucky enough to have known her amazing spirit and kindness. If desired, donations can be made in Paige’s name to the Human Rights Campaign or Great Dane Rescue of North Texas. Rest in power, sweet Paige.
