Friends of Layla Stories

Always A Friend

If there’s one thing people remember about Layla, it’s that she was a friend to everyone. She was the first to greet a new student at school or say hello to a stranger at the store. We like to think of her in Heaven as the “official greeter”. Through our journey, we have made so many new friends. Some are survivors, some are fighters, and sadly some are angels like Layla. It’s our honor to share their stories, in the words of their families.
