    My heart goes out to you and your families at this very sad time. Know God is watching over her and all of you…Sharon, Jeff and Elizabeth Taylor

    You do not know me, but I had a sister with cystic fibrosis who is now also with the Good Lord. She was a very special person as is every person I ever met who has CF. I always felt God had a special place in his heart for these “kids”. My sister was a “spit fire” that made her even more special. I am sure that your Laela had her own ways that made her special also. I would like to think that my sister greeted her at those Pearly Gates and hand in hand walked up to God as He welcomed her with loving arms. God Bless you, my prayers are with you.

    Laela was the best friend you could have. She was a kind and generous person. I will miss hanging out on the swings and laughing with her soooo very much.

    Dear Sam, Charlie, Alexis, Sasha & Dusten,
    Out hearts ache for your beautiful Laela and your family. She was so very precious to each of us. Words cannot begin to describe how badly we feel over the loss of one of our own. Laela will forever be in our hearts and we continue to pray for her and you. May God bring you peace and strength in these days ahead. Little Laela is a true angel in heaven.


    Dear Sam and Charlie, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family in this difficult time. I have heard about your daughter through Linda Wingling, as we work together and she has kept in informed of your beautiful daughter. We lost our granddaughter to CF, and I know how difficult it is. Please know that we are thinking of you and your family.

    You have our families deepest sympathy. Laela was a very sweet little girl. All the girls in our subdivision painted their nails and put a “L” on them in memory of Laela for the first day of school. Rest in Peace Laela…

    My sympathy to the Berube and Solis family. I am the brother of Jim Powell and brother in law of Patti. Met Laela a couple of years ago at a Fourth of July party. She was swimming, eating and enjoying herself. She seemed like a very nice girl and very polite to everyone. Just wanted to send my condolances to the family. Very tragic she was taken from you so early in life. May your family and friends give you strength to heal from this.

    To the Family of Laela,
    I want to express my deepest sympathies to you in this dark time. My son, Sean, told us on the first day of school about your daughter. He never met her, but he was deeply saddened by her passing. I told him that she is now at peace and an angel watching over her classmates.
