My thoughts and prayers are with your whole family at this time. I knew Kayla from the gas station. She was so friendly and always wanted to know how my day was, when I went in. I asked her about the baby when she was pregnant and she was so excited. God has a plan and needed Kayla with him. She is definitely an Angel. She will guide you thru the next few days during those difficult times. When my Mom passed away, I didnt say goodbye...It is..til we meet again, this is only our temporary home...

My deepest sympathy goes out to the family. I''''ve known Kayla since we first met each other in Mrs. Stillwell''''s class in Kindergarten.. from her glasses to her crutches to her awesome accounting skills that she carried me through in High School. She was such an honest, loving, caring person and was loved by many. I know that this has to be the hardest thing for any of the family members to deal with. I know that you all have an Angel looking down at you and Zac you are a great daddy. Even though words can''''t explain this terrible tragedy, Kayla will always be in everyone''''s hearts!

Psalm 3:3 But you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head.

I am blessed to have known Kayla! My heart is saddened by this tragedy and mourns for her children, but yet reassuring that she has now been reunited with her other baby! Many prayers are uplifted for comfort and guidance for dear family and friends as you walk day to day. Psalm 3:3 is a verse I look to. We don't know why things happen and it's not for us to know, but lean on God for your strength and He will help you keep your head up. May you find peace and comfort through these times. Love and prayers.
