Thinking about you Alayna. I was going through some pictures and seeing one of Caitlin holding you on the beach at Beltsville it was such a fun day with all of us there. You were the sweetest girl anyone could know. I can hear your voice in my head and remember how sweet you were with Jace when he was born. You truly are an Angel that watches over all of us.

May you rest easy and may we all meet you again someday sweet girl.

Dear Ruth, Josh, Bry, Karissa and Shannon,
Please accept our condolences in the tragic loss of your daughter, your sister. Although we have not seen Alayna since our days at St. Paul's, the last few days we've come to know of the beautiful person she was both inside and out. I hope you can take comfort in knowing that God had instantly sent a host of angels, her guardian angel and of course our Blessed Mother and St. Joseph to her side in her great time of need to minister to her, to be with her and to guide her while she rested in the loving arms of the Mother of God safely wrapped in her mantle. Our prayer for all of you is that you too come to feel the warmth and protection of our Blessed Mother, she knows first hand your sorrows and is here for you always and will lead you to a peace that can only come from her Son. Please be assured of our continued prayers for all your needs.

Dear Velez Family, I was so very sad to hear of Alayna's tragic passing. As a family, you have been through so much. I have such fond memories of our times at St. Paul's. I remember watching Alayna at the cheerleading events when she was very small, as she watched her sisters perform. And all the times Ruth brought her to school when helping out--Alayna was like a little mascot until it was time for her to be in Kindergarten herself. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. May you feel the love of family and friends surround you, and especially the comfort of our Lord Jesus.
With love, Jane Gibson

Ruth, Josh, Bry, Karissa and Shannan,

Words cannot convey how sorry I am for your unfathomable loss. Alayna is a beautiful and kind soul who made the world a better and happier place just by being in it. Your family is made of the best and strongest people we know, and while there is nothing that can be said to lessen the pain or sorrow of this loss, we hope your love for each other and the love and affection so many have for all of you can bring you solace. Charlie and I are keeping you all close to our hearts and in our thoughts.

With deepest love and sympathy, now and always.
