Aryana 🤍, you are so missed. I will never forget all our laughs and talks. You always knew how to make me smile!! Every time I saw you I would just tell you how much I loved your crocs! Also, Ary is the reason why I know how to edit pictures because she taught me everything I know! Something I thought was so small, now means so much to me. I remember at Christmas, Reyna wanted to take a picture of us and we both laughed because we thought we looked “ratchet” LOL! But now, I’m so happy we took that photo and that I’ll remember that memory forever. I remember the day I showed her my engagement ring and how I told her that “we have a wedding to plan!!!” And how excited I was to have her as one of my bridesmaids and how excited she was to be apart of it all. I remember her telling me she wanted to go to cosmetology school, and I remember being so excited for her and excited to see her graduate. I am just so blessed to have known her. And to her family, who I love deeply, you guys are all in my thoughts and prayers. One things for sure, we will never forget the light she was.

Aryana-I do not know how I will live my life without you and would do anything to have you walk through my door and say "Hey Tia!" I will miss you teasing the boys and your uncle Dave. I will miss our trips to Walmart and us shouting PEANUTS through the isles. I will miss your texts just to make me smile. I will miss your hugs and crazy dances!! Till I see you again my beautiful girl!!

Dear Maria and Family,
My heart is so broken for you and your family.
I never meet your sweet girl but saw her pick you up many times and she always had a smile on her face.
I wish I could hug your pain away but I know I cant, so the best thing I can do is pray God will be with you and wrap his arms around you.

Aryana was afraid of my son Jeremy, every time she saw him she would hide behind Maria's back. She was 4 years old, he was 17 years old. She did that from the moment she met him. She was a cute and shy Pre-K student. He was a tall and a Junior in High School. Everytime he would visit me at work this is what she would do. As she grew a little older I believe she developed a little crush. Maria my heart breaks for you and your whole family.

The LeVan Family,

Anita and Jeremy

My heart has broken. I will forever cherish my memories with your sweet Aryana, especially how her face always lit up, at the tender age of 4, when, according to Aryana, I said her name in Spanish. To Maria, Edwin, Tatiana, and all your family, we send all our love. The Branton Family, Brian, Lynda and Emily.
