Jayline was one of the sweetest, loving, and accepting people I’ve ever known. Even though my children and I left Sedalia so many years ago, she and Bill were always dear to us. Malaikah and Khadeem will always cherish their Grandma Jayline. May the Lord’s unfailing love and peace give you comfort at this time.
