    Shayla was a good friend. She will be missed. To the babies I love y'all n if there's anything I can do just let me know. She will always be watching over you and never forget that. I'm sure she loves her new neon pink glittery wings Austyn?

    Our sincere condolences and prayers for your family, and we are so very sorry for your loss. We'll be praying for you and asking our Heavenly Father to give you strength and understanding in the days ahead. This is so heartbreaking and I'm struggling to find a way to express my feelings because I know that there's no words to make it better for you right now. So I will use the words of Jesus: Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Matthew 5:4. God Bless
