Most people struggle there entire lives, yes some times living the struggle for up to 100 years or longer. Working sun up to sun down to make all the money they can. But what is "real " riches anyway. 100 years from now we all will be gone that now walk the earth today. So Is it the money we made or how hard we worked to keep up with our house n yards, Or is the real treasure found deep in the hearts of the friends u have gathered along life's journey. For love and friendships is the only thing u can carry with u past heavens gates. Killianna may have not have struggled on this earth 100 years putting in thousands of hours at work building a mountion of dollar bills... but yet she managed to gather as much or more " REAL " and ever lasting treasure in her life time than perhaps another that may make it to 120, with millions of dollars left behind in n a dusty safe.
