Hello Mya,
You and I have met several times at Levine Children's Hospital and the clinic. My son Hunter (25) and I were at the clinic today. You have been on my heart for days and days and I asked one of the nurses about Mya - of course, she could not say a word - but I came home and googled her name. I am just heartbroken Mya - there are no words for me to say but please know that your precious little girl made such a huge impression on us. She was so brave and bubbly and I know she is in heaven where she can be the doctor that she dreamed of being!! You and your husband were so kind to me and I appreciate all the knowledge that you shared. Ya'll are in my thoughts and prayers. Much love - Lisa Dowless

Dear Thanah , Mya & Family,

There are no words I can offer to give you consolation on the loss of your precious
Mya McKensie. I can only extend my deepest and heartfelt sympathy.

I will pray for you, that God's comfort, hope and unending love will be with you
moment by moment, that He may give you his peace and consolation until the time when you are reunited with your precious child.

Dear Nguyen family,

I am so sorry to read of the loss of your daughter, granddaughter and niece, Mya. We used to live in Charlotte and as we were viewing an obituary, we saw this one about Mya.

We have a grandson that is the same age as Mya. While I can’t imagine the depth of pain you are feeling now, our Heavenly Father (Psalm 83:18) takes note of every tear you shed and each ache in your heart, as well as those precious thoughts of Mya that cross your mind. Matthew 10:30 says, “But even the hairs of your head are all numbered.” This shows that God knows us individually and can help each of us in a personal way.

In the future, even death will be done away with. God promises, in the Bible, at John 5: 28, 29-“Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.”

May the comfort from the Scriptures help you cope during this grievous time.

Dear Thanh and Mya,

My sincere condolences at the loss of your beautiful little girl, Mya McKenzie.

My heart was broken when I learned after Mass yesterday that Mya McKenzie has passed. I'll miss seeing her sweet face at Mass at St. Thomas Aquinas Church.

We take consolation knowing that Mya McKenzie doesn't have to endure anymore pain and suffering in this world. She is now a saint and at eternal peace in heaven with Our Lord. Although you cannot see her, her spirit is still around you, and you can talk to her all the time.

I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

I never met Mya but I saw so many pictures over the past few years, especially with all her dolls. I have followed her journey through her Mom at Pampered Nails. I've been going there and bringing my granddaughter since she was 6. Mya was the most loving, caring devoted Mom throughout this journey and I cannot imagine the pain she and her family are feeling right now.

They had 10 wonderful years to get to know and love her and she in turn brought them so much joy.

Thinking of all of you with saddness but smiling because now she is finally at peace.
