Memorial for Layla Grace tomorrow, Saturday, March 13

For those of you who are in the Houston area and have some time, please take a bit of that time out of your day to attend the Celebration of Life for Layla Grace. The information is as follows from her dad Ryan:

I’d like to say thank you for the overwhelming support we’ve received the past few days. We felt loved before, but WOW, I’m completely speechless. In the midst of feeling like my heart is being ripped out, I’m also so thankful for the love for Layla that is being shown to us.

Layla has touched so many in her short time on earth. Please join us at Layla’s Celebration of Life, Saturday March 13th at 10:30am at Bear Creek Baptist Church. 5901 North Fry Road, Katy, TX 77449-1807. We will honor her through pictures, music and a balloon release. Childcare will be provided.

A huge thank you to everyone who is inquiring about donating flowers for the service. Layla LOVED flowers!! Here is our florist information….

Thank you for your continued love and prayers.

Her father was on the radio again today and it was just heartbreaking. They played audio of Layla talking during the segment and I couldn't help but cry.

You can listen to it here: http://www.krbe.com/Portals/1/audio/rrshow/031210_laylaupdate.mp3

Please continue to pray for Ryan, Shanna, Jenna and Claire and for their continued peace. Shanna is having an especially hard time and, even though there is so much that needs to be done before tomorrow, she couldn't even get out of bed earlier. I can't even begin to imagine the grief, the denial, the numbness they are going through. And I pray. I pray for them.
