nunca se fue en espíritu

Kayla- my deepest sincere condolences to you and your family.
I worked with your mom at the clinic for years and she was one of the best!
My favorite memory was her calling me on the phone after the Chiefs won their first Super Bowl (in our lifetime) and she was so happy and in tears! We love our Chiefs!
Every single time I came in to the clinic after I left she would pull out her phone and say “want to see pictures of my grand baby?!”
Hell yea I do! She was so proud of you and her grand baby! Her eyes would twinkle when she talked about you.
My prayers are with you girl.

I was lucky enough to work with your mom for a lot of years. She was amazing at her job. Her patients and peers loved her. She was just one of a kind.
My favorite memory of her is a big group of us going out after work. She and I sat next to each other and we kept taking silly Snapchat pictures. We laughed like crazy.
My heart hurts for you and Lenna. You two were her whole world.
Sending you prayers of peace.

Hearing about your mom absolutely broke my heart. I had the pleasure of working with her for many years at The Liberty Clinic. She was one of the very first medical assistants and one of the absolute best! We worked right by each other and had several conversations throughout our day! We would discuss anything from her love for Daryl on her favorite Netflix series, to her crazy cats and especially you and Lenna. She lit up the room when she talked of you and her grandbaby and was so very proud of you. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Hugs girl.
