Zaylah my Sister-Friend, It's been more than a year now since you left us, incredibly. I still wish you could come back! I realize no one will probably even see this, but it is really just to you anyway. I love you so much and still feel sort of lost without you. I know that my first trip back to Cleveland will be a tough one. You are my sister, friend, soulmate, mindreader. You know me so well, and you have always had my back. You have been my rock since my mom died, and now I don't have one anymore. I'm still having such a rough time. I wish you could meet my little miracle son, and that we were raising babies together!! I love you forever. Sandi

Dear Harold and family - May I express my most sincere condolences for your tremendous loss. I am so proud and lucky to have called Zaylah a dear friend. Zaylah gave such joy and laughter to me as well as so many other lucky individuals. She was a proud, strong woman, never holding back when confronted with life's turbulence. Words cannot describe how much I loved and admired Zaylah and the sting of losing her is overwhelming. While we cannot begin to understand the mind of God, I am sure he had need of her personality and skills in Heaven. Hopefully all of us will be together with her again someday. May precious Zaylah rest in peace.

I loved my Zaylah very dearly, and I am grateful and thankful that she was a part of my life. Her life was brilliant.

I hope you know how much Zaylah meant to me.. We were more like sisters than best friends. We shared thousands of tears, laughs dreams together. She was the pilot and I was her navigator. Harold, you were her knight in shining armor. She prayed for you long before you came into her life and when you did it was during a time she needed you the most. She used to tell me, "My love loves me. You know how I know? Because he tells me and shows me every day." I believe you were a match made in Heaven. She was living the fairy tale she had always dreamed of. Hayden and Camron, your mother loved you two more so much. She did what she had to do to give you the best life she could. I remember a conversation we had on a trip to Memphis about how fast time had flown by, Hayden you were getting ready to graduate and we knew that in a flash it would be your turn, Cam...she cried at the thought of not having you two in the same house with her and how she wished she could stop time and keep you there forever. She always told me how proud she was of you two and bragged on the both of you constantly. Let's thrive on her memories, the laughs, the tears and those dreams.. It is because of Z that I am a better person. I love you guys.
