We loved Kaila deeper than most can comprehend. Both Kaila and Alicia are true blessings to our family. Kaila's life had more purpose and influence than most ever will. God placed this miracle in our lives, for which we are forever grateful. Allen, Patricia and Alicia, I am in awe of your commitment, care and absolute selfless love you have given her. I thank you for letting us be a part of your journey. May our God continue to bless and comfort this family.
Always in my heart.
Uncle David

Kaila was a blessing everyday in our classroom with her smiles and laughter. She especially loved her musical instruments when all the other students joined in. All the music made her so happy she would smile from ear to ear. Kaila was our teacher as much as or more than we were her teachers.
God’s peace be with you.

She was always a flower in your garden of love. A gentle sweet presence, one of God’s special children.
She has a new body now, and is basking in the Heavenly light, where she can grow, as all flowers do.
So sorry for your loss.

Kaila was a unique young lady! She filled our hearts with joy and happiness. She might not have verbally talked to us but boy did her eyes and laughter communicate much to us.
One of my prayer warrior friends said it the best:
“Kaila has definitely run the great race and finished the course and kept the faith. And the prize awaits her, the garland of righteousness which the Lord, the all-just Judge has awarded her. Her life was an inspiration and challenge to so many. Know this is hard for you but a blessing for her.”
