Found a video of you and your sorority sisters on YouTube. It was good to hear you laugh again.
You will never be forgotten. Miss you!!!
It's hard to believe that it's been a year since you left us. There hasn't been a single day or waking moment that we weren't thinking of you. We miss you.
To the Sabala family,
I am so sorry for your loss, I just found out today and am in complete shock! I had Mayeli for different classes at UTPA, her involvement and ambition in various organizations amazed me...you should be so proud! I know you are going through a difficult time, my thoughts and prayers are with you.
Thank you Dr. Nelson and UTPA...Mayeli got her diploma.
My sypathies to the family and that god gives you the courage to overcome this. Mayeli was a excellent student and she will be missed.

My condolences to the family for your loss. Our heavenly father knows what you are going through. Continue to rely on him for srength during this most difficult time.
God Bless The Sabala Family and May Jesus Christ comfort you during this difficult time. Know that Mayeli is now one of God's Angels in Heaven.
May the family find comfort from the God who understands pain. (John 3:16)One day death will be no more.
It was a pleasure meeting you. You were a great person that always had a smile on your face. You will be missed by everyone that knew you.
I never had a chance to exchange a conversation with you, but I wish I did. You seemed like a great person. One great memory that I share with my friends is the one time that I DJed at the "White House" in front of Pan Am and I saw you there. You were enjoying the music I was playing. Seeing a smile on your face made me very happy! I look forward to one day seeing you again in Heaven, but this time it will be you playing the music. Rest in peace my friend.
Mayeli, your pure heart of gold, your smile, your will to make me laugh at every conversation we had. I can hear your voice still. Sometimes we don't understand WHY things happen but I pray that the Lord grant us all the peace that surpasses understanding to know everything is part of his great plan! I forever cherish the moment of holding your hand and closing my eyes to pray with you that Saturday at the hospital & as sleepy as you were I know you felt the Lord because he was right there. You could feel it. Thank you for showing me what it was to overcome things despite obstacles placed in our way. Thank you for the laughs, the smiles, the moments that made your friendship truly special to me!!!! You were always so optimistic and brave and your friends now carry that with them in spirt! God Bless You Mayelita :) Fly high!
I did not know you personally. But I think I'll get to know you through the good works that you have done and the people you've touched. Thank you for being an inspiration.
REST IN PEACE" ADMIRO TU VALENTIA PARA ENFRENTAR TODO. MI RESPETO Y ADMIRACION. DESCANSA EN PAZ. HERMOSO ANGEL!
Please accept my sincere condolences. I know that the pain from losing Mayeli is unbearable beyond words. My heart goes out to you. May the greatest source of comfort, God, lovingly comfort you and grant you peace of mind and heart. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. With deep sympathy, Adrianne
Sister!.. This is something I would have wished never to have happened. I still don't believe it. You will forever be in my heart. I will miss you tremendously but every day will be a day closer to seeing you again. I will pray for you my little butterfly! I Love You.
`Miss Sabala may not have been able to receive her degree, but she mostly DID receive something much valuable. She received her Angel wings and able to walk thru the Golden Gates in Heaven.
God Bless her family & prayers of comfort. Even though I did not know her, she must have been a beautiful person in and out, & an excellent student.
Rest in peace dear cousin, I never really knew you, but you seemed like a wonderful soul.
I really can't express in words how I feel right now. I miss you. It hurts to have you so far away and not be able to see you but I know you are in a better place and that you will watch over us all; your family, friends, sorority sisters, everyone. I know that one day I will see you again. 'Till we meet again.
I never got to meet you, but you're my cousin and it hurts that I won't get the chance to know you and how amazingly wonderful you are. Rest in peace and I look forward to meeting you someday!
Mayeli was an amazing little girl who grew into an amazing young woman! She taught us how to live, and how to laugh! She is the sunshine, the twinkling stars, and the soft moonlight, and will always remain in our hearts and souls. Those of us who have been blessed to have known her and shared in her life will forever be grateful for her! Thank you Fran and Vic for opening up your hearts and home for Mayeli and Jordan when they needed you. Your love and generosity filled her heart and for that we are forever grateful. the Scheibers
You were an inspiration to all who knew you. You will be missed. but I know you are in a better place now.
I will always remember her beautiful smile...and her sense of humor...rest in peace...dear Mayeli..*prayers* for the Sabala family and friends at this time...
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
I still can't believe it Sis! I MISS YOU SOOOO MUCH! I will always love you!
Young lady I did not know you, but I do know what Lupus does to a body. My younger sister had lupus since she turned 13 and she survived until she was in her 40s. She suffered as I'm sure you did, but everyone is correct. You are now in a new body in a better place where illness cannot touch you. You are whole, happy and in the presence of the Lord!! You did alot for others, even though you were suffering. You like her probably never complained. She would have celebrated her birthday on May 9th, but now she is in eternal rest. I pray that your family knows how much better off you are. I pray for them and know that one day you will be reunited with them, just like I can't wait to see my little sister. Que Dios bendiga a su familia.
Mayeli, wish we could have spent more time together but I know that now your spending time with the Lord Our God and you couldn't have picked better company. Brother Vic and Fran please except our condolences. David Sabala and Family.
You were a big part of my life, and so much more I'd like to say, but words are not enough. Sorry I cannot attend, but you will be remembered daily here.
Mayeli, you will always be in our hearts. You have touched each and every one of us and we will never forget you. Thank you for teaching us to be strong and not to give up on our beliefs and dreams. I am so proud of all your accomplishments.... I love you and thank God for putting you in my life. I know deep in my heart that you are now with your birth mother celebrating! Until we see each other again.......Delma
It is hard to I think about my life with out you. You have always held a very special place in my heart from the first day we met. I am thinking of you dancing the Macarena on your knees on the living room floor with your cousins. You were so tiny but always so full of life. You taught us all how to overcome hardships and live life to it's fullest everyday. You will always be a beautiful ray of sunshine.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
I love, miss and always remember you. You're an angel and we couldn't hold you here any longer. Your loving wings needed to send you somewhere else. Up above you can guide, watch and protect your family, Greek brothers and sisters and all the people needing an angel on their side. Keep smiling as bright as the sun and laughing like it's just you in the room.
Sister, we miss you. I miss you. Thank you for always lending an open ear to me and for being so non judgmental when I shared personal things with you. It was a pleasure being sisters with you. I'll never forget the fun times we had together
:-) love you.
I never met Mayeli, but I am an alumni sister of Delta Xi Nu, and I just wanted to say that my thoughts and prayers are with her friends and family during this difficult time! She sounded like an amazing woman, and I truly wish I would have had the chance to personally know her! Love and hugs!
In dreams we'll meet. Thank you for everything you taught me the for blessing us with your presence. We love you and miss you.
