    Baby girl, every time the wind blows my hair as I work in my gardens your quiet sneaky presence will be remembered and I will see your spirit with me. I love you and cherish the moment when I can wrap my arms around you once more; no words ever needed again, pure unspoken knowledge of His healing….

    Amazing person both inside and out. Last time I saw her she was working at the YMCA summer camp in Rochester, NY. She always had an infectious smile. Gonna miss you.
    Rest in peace Makayla. My heart goes out to Erin and the rest of her family.

    I was a dear friend of makayla I have helped her through many problems she had faced in the years that I have known her she was truly an amazing soul she truly brought a genuine smile to my face whenever we talked she always had a beautiful mindset, but even tho through out the time I knew her she never gave up even when the people that she cared for around her did nothing to try to help her, I remember sitting on the phone with her for hours talking with her – dylie”
