You were a beautiful person inside and out. Gone to soon for reasons unknown. The lives you impacted in 21 short years is unimaginable. You were one of a kind- strong, loving, funny, compassionate, a "rock" and "the glue" for your friends. Your smile lit up the room and your laughter followed you everywhere.
You taught so many the true meaning of friendship and unconditional love. You were a leader, a friend a loving and adoring sister and daughter. You are truly unforgettable. In high school you were the VP of your business club DECA, on the national honor society and later the deans list at UB.
Kayla had recently taken the LSAT and began applying to law school where she planned to be a family law attorney to help children. Your compassion and love had no end. There just are not enough words in the English language to capture the essence of who you were.
You were my first baby, a precious gift from GOD taken too soon for reasons unknown. God's ways are not our ways but that knowledge doesn't make it any easier here without you.
Your love for family and friends is so keenly missed- nothing can or will ever fill the void that your passing has left for so many people. Your best friends warned us that the funeral home would be overwhelming and they were right- over 300 people came to say goodbye and we were told that the funeral procession looked like it was one for a dignitary- in a way you were- If there was ever an ambassador of love it was you.
Today makes 13 days since you passed and I still can't believe I will never see your smile, hear your laughter or hold you here on earth again. You are unforgettable. The void left in so many lives by your passing cannot and never will be filled. I love and miss you baby girl-mom
