The Neverending Story

'The finest steel has to go through the hottest fire.'
--John N Mitchell

We set up this website in late October for our wonderful, inquisitive, loving Aiyana. Yana is our eight year old daughter, sister, cousin, niece, friend and granddaughter who was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of leukemia (MPAL).

Aiyana had an amazing life and we are filled with hundreds of heartwarming memories. May all of us take to heart how much a little girl from Lockeford, CA, impacted the world and be reminded and inspired to never let the sun go down without living each day all the way through.

Her Spirit is in every Butterfly.


She Begins Her Journey

Our beautiful Aiyana took God’s hand on November 24, 2009, after a short battle with Leukemia. She was 8.

Aiyana loved music and laughter, especially when the house was full of the people she loved. She especially enjoyed helping her mom and sister plant flowers and vegetables in the garden. She spent her time on earth singing, dancing, and showing us how to love each other.

Aiyana was joyous and empathetic, a good listener and friend. She brought enormous joy to every minute of every day and was gracious and loving and kind. Aiyana travels ahead of her mom and dad, her grandparents, aunts and uncles, five loving sisters and brothers, and many more cousins and friends. She learned to walk and run with us: now God is showing her how to fly.
