Deborah Thibodeaux's daughter, Sadie, was found dead this week in Lake Pontchartrain.  

While she says that it "hurts so much to say goodbye," this grieving mother is also celebrating her daughter's life.  Sadie was a fitness instructor in Baton Rouge before recently moving to New Orleans.

Deborah shared a video to her social media showing Sadie leading a fitness class.

"My girl lived and loved life," she said of her daughter.

Sadie Thibodeaux's body was recovered Tuesday after the sailboat she had been on was found over the weekend adrift in the lake.  A man authorities say she was dating was rescued from the water and questioned by police.

Cops say they are treating the case as a homicide to determine the death was an accident or a crime.
