I only knew Shayla through brief interactions where she worked, but she always made the experience brighter with her beautiful smile and her adorable demeanor. I know, from what I've heard, she had many people who loved her and I know will miss her terribly.

What was done to her was cruel and senseless, but I hope those who love her take comfort in the fact that, even someone like me who only knew her in passing moments, she touched people in the nicest of ways and will be missed by oh so many.

R.I.P. beautiful girl. I hope you're watching over all of us now from a much better place.
