Bailey was a good friend of mine even though we only met this year, she has always held a special place in my heart. She would always make me laugh and I enjoyed spending the time I got to with her we both went to the same school and were both in 6th grade. She will be missed very dearly my family and I are praying for the family of her. Thanks for the great memories Bailey, fly high.

Sweet Tia,
I remember years ago you looked at me in the midst of tragedy and said absolutely nothing. You just hugged me and we cried together because there are no words. Today I am crying with you as well. May Harley's arms embrace sweet Bailey in the great beyond.
There are no words. Only tears. Lots and lots of tears. Sending you love and peace during today and the years ahead💔

I'm at a loss for words. Saying I'm so sorry for loss seems completely inadequate. I do know that you have to be one of,if not THE strongest woman I know. I wish I could take some of your pain from you or console you in some way because no one ever deserves to go through all you gone through. But you are a fighter and a survivor because here you still stand. You will be in my thoughts prayers 💕

My heartfelt sympathies to Bailey’s family and friends. When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure. May your cherished memories fill your hearts with love and joy, and may the promise held out to us in God’s word at John 5:28, 29 comfort you.

I am sadden by the news of Bailey's passing. I hope and pray you found comfort in Jesus. There are so many things in life that we don't have answers to. There are so many things we cry to Lord to give us the strength to overcome.I know as a mother we try to protect our children, but there is so much we can't protect them from. But, just know Jesus knows every tear that falls from your eyes and He has not forgotten you. But, is standing right by your side.

I went to school with Bailey we were really close we were in the same classes at PCMS. She was a beautiful- kind hearted girl. When she walked into a room she would light the whole room. I miss her very much!!! ( 4 and a half anniversary)
