Makayla Smith was just 5 years old when she earned her angel wings. She was full of joy and her smile was contagious. Her family misses her every day, but is so grateful for the time they had with her. Her mom says it best, “In the brief moments that I let my mind wander to losing Makyala, I imagined myself so lost in grief that I could not even make it out of bed… but God has given me peace, some understanding, and the strength for each new day… In this situation, it seems so easy to blame God, and ask why this happened… but there is a reason, and someday when I am reunited with my precious Makayla, I will know! For now, I will keep the faith, keep on loving, and I will be eternally grateful for everyone that has taken this journey with us.” This is Makayla’s memorial.
