Memories Timeline

Guestbook

  1. I don't know where to start. Kayla had a heart of gold. So many good memories of hanging out at her house cooking and letting Katlynn and my Godchild play. Going to Houston just us girls. Most recent yet hard memory was her singing at my Dad's funeral. I use to always tell her she was gonna sing my father daughter dance. She was so shocked when I asked her to sing at the funeral. But I told her she still had to sing at my wedding but now her and my Dad will be singing together. My prays are with Mike,Katlynn and her parents

  2. I have prayed for the day when you would be pain free, but this wasn't what I had in mind. I want you here with me. I need my friend. I will miss you so much. I love you and I will see you again.

  3. I miss you so much already Kayla. We talked almost everyday and you were always there for me. What a wonderful friend you were!! I wish we could have many more good times together but I know you are in heaven now looking down and guiding us. I cherish all my memories of our times together. My heart goes out to Kaytlynn and Mike and your mom and dad. There is a void that only you could fill and those of us left behind are so missing you. Rest in Peace my friend.

  4. I still can't wrap my head around you being gone. Just a few nights ago we were texting girl talk and you told me to talk to you later when I had time and that you didn't mean to wake me. I'm ready for that talk now. As hard as it now, it will be even harder when I expect to see your smiling face and hear that goofy laugh at the next adoption event. I love you, Kayla, and will never forget you.

  5. It is hard to believe Kayla is no longer with us. She has touched so many lives, people and animals. I will greatly miss her. My prayers go out to you and your family
