I remember Kayla as being a fun-spirited girl. She was always smiling and always had a realistic attitude about life. I send warm thoughts of peace at this time of sadness.
My condolences to the family of Kayla. I am praying for you all during this difficult time.
I didn’t know Kayla well but the little I did, she sure is an inspiration. I met Kayla when she practice bowled in the lanes next to my brother, John Gruber, in Special Olympics. She ALWAYS had a smile on her face which would totally light up when she got a strike – giving the “high five” and a laugh. I am so saddened to hear of her passing. May peace surround your family as you recall your memories of her. Her spirit will live on with us but Heaven has another Angel with her there. May she watch over you. Peace and blessings.
