You are in my thoughts again Cayla. I am still struggling with the thought that you are truly gone. I just can't wrap my head around this, it doesn't seem real. So many broken hearts are left behind. Please come back to visit every now and then; your Mom, Dad, Amanda and Shane need a hug. Let them know that your ok. I love you Cayla. Please say hello to Grandpa Medek, Bert Jr, Hildiguard, Debbie and Andy for me; tell them that we still think of them often.
Lots of Love, Aunt Donna

Micayla, I think of you everyday. Knowing you are in a better place helps but I know I will miss reading your daily comments on facebook. You hand a kind heart and a great smile. Know that you will be missed and always loved. I know you were loved by your Mom and Dad. Your Dad called and spoke of you often. You were a joy and brought happiness to your Dad. Just stopping to say hi was something he talked about. Love Always! Aunt Jenny

Our prayers are with your family. I only know of Micayla through my wife who as a customer met Micayla and was impressed with her when Micayla helped out in the Franktown store. While it is immensely difficult to find peace and understanding so soon after this unspeakable evil done to her and all of the others, we as believers know that God works ALL things to His Glory and Purpose. May His kingdom be ever enriched by Micayla's presence and may His kingdom grow in innumerable ways by the lives she has touched and by the way the memory of her continues to touch hearts and lives.

Macayla was loved by a lot of us here at the Anschutz Medical Campus. I just wanted you to know that and all of her family is being prayed for and I know that God will give you the strength to endure the pain of your loss. We are also in pain with you. You should have seen the people that she worked with on Friday. When I went over to get some ice cream, they were all working but they all looked like zombies - they were in Shock and so sad.

Take care and I know that you know who to lean on! That is a blessing in itself.

I went to school with Micayla, although I did not know her so personally, every time I saw her she seemed like such a nice girl, quiet, but always with a smile on her face. My condolences go out to her family and friends. She will truly be missed, and regardless of whether our Hinkley community knew her well or not, she is family, she is a Thunderbird and I'm glad that we can all come together in a time like this.

Dear Medek family,

May god be with you at this sorrowful time. I saw the story about your daughter on the news and my heart breaks for you. I lost my brother in a tragic accident 5 years ago. He was 25 years old. I don't know why these things happen. I will keep you and Micayla in my prayers. Micayla is with you and as time goes on you will be able to feel her around you. God bless

We were sadden by the news of your unexpected death.
