    Kaylah you will be missed so much. I just loved your smile and the way you made everyone feel so comfortable. You were so smart. I loved our intellectual conversations. I felt smarter just being next to you. We love you and can’t wait to see you again.

    May Jehovah keep your family strong in faith. Tara you and your family were the first family my girls and hung out with at the hall. We have always had a connection. Kaylah’s spirit lives on in everyone she came in contact with.
