Posted on Wednesday, February 21, 2018 07:49 AM

Keeping Becca Schofield's memory alive, will be something we all need to do together.

Her desire to see everything perform random acts of kindness, spread worldwide, with her #beccatoldmeto.

Riverview Councillor at Large Tammy Rampersaud says she had faith that we could do it, and now that she has passed on, it's up to us to continue that legacy..

"It all comes down to all of us individually.  I would like to ask everyone out there in our world to hold themselves accountable and try and be kind when you can be kind.  Try and do something nice for someone. Try and filters of of your decisions with a little bit of Becca.  She knew that we all have the power individually and collectively to change and shape the world we live in.  She put that out there.  She knew that so young.  We all have the power, we just need to trust in Becca and make it happen, "Rampersaud says.

Rampersaud says #Beccatoldmeto, will be recognized each year on September 16th, but it is important that we are kind every day of the year.

"There are 365 days in a year, so let's do something amazing on every single day of the year so we can celebrate Becca on September 16th,  but also live out all of the days of our lives being the best people we can."

Thousands are expected to attend today's Celebration of life for Becca Schofield at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Riverview, at 11 o'clock..

Rampersaud says she received a statement from Becca's family.  It said, "We are touched and overwhelmed by the outpouring of love being shown for our beautiful Becca right now.  We are also touched by the impact she had made in this world, and are hopeful that efforts to make a better world will live on in the hearts of everyone she has touched."

Rebecca Schofield passed away on February 17th, after a three year battle with brain cancer.
