"When I told her I was gay, she said, 'I'm proud of you. I mean I knew that already, but I'm proud you know now'," Davis said.

Her boyfriend, Damon Murray, said he had talked to her a day before the accident on Google chat. He had lost his phone and that was their way of communicating. Shortly afterward, he realized Google saved the chat and he read it.

"Sometimes you lose somebody, and you want to say something nice and you kind of have to dig for it, but everything everyone said was in that conversation," Murray said.

In the conversation she talked about how much she loved her parents, he said, and how excited she was about a new writing prospect and looking forward to the future.

"I think I would be remiss if I didn't tell everybody that if you didn't take one thing from this, it's don't wait," he said. "She had all the talent in the world, and she didn't really get the chance to do everything she wanted to do. Let's not make that a repeat offense."

In lieu of flowers, the Hoke family is asking for donations to be made in her name to KUCI, UCI's public radio station. They can be addressed to Kevin Stockdale at KUCI Radio, PO Box 4362 Irvine, CA 92616.
