"Although Amayja was with us briefly, she has touched the hearts and lives of all who knew her," her parents wrote. "Her presence was larger than life. It is amazing how such a tiny girl could leave such a mark on our lives. She had a delightful smile, beautiful dimples, sweet voice and a twinkle in her eyes. We are comforted to know she is in Heaven.
"Amayja loved to be held. She made her presence known as soon as she woke up in the morning and had a very curious nature. We named her Myrari, which means miracle, and she truly was. We will all miss her very much."
