  1. To the family of Audryanna Cosby:

    My heart is grieving for your family right now. I worked with Audryanna at the Childrens Ark. I loved to see her smile every time I came to work. She was a beautiful person. Her poetry was beautiful and showed her talent. I know we will all miss her. My prayers are with you. God bless.

  4. Lila and Family,
    I don’t know how to express the words for how I feel I just know that my heart goes out to your family. I was deeply saddened when I heard about Audryanna and feel your pain. I pray that God can help take away the pain from losing a loved one. Let God wipe away the tears of hurt and replace them with tears of joy in remembering the gift given to you in the form of a wonderful girl. From what I recall of Audryanna, she was a beautiful child with a beautiful heart just like her mother was when Lila and I went to school. Now Audryanna is a beautiful young woman with that same beautiful heart she had as a young child watching over everyone. Lila, I wish there was a way I could help you overcome your grief of losing a loved one like you did when my dad passed.

  6. What a sweet, dear little girl she was, sitting near me in church! That sweet face & smile. It was always a Blessing to have Lila & the kids sit there, to brighten my day & worshipping the Lord together! We got seperated by moves,etc. and about a yr.1/2 ago I saw Lila & Audryanna at Walgreens. There was no mistaking the darling face of the girl as the one who sat by me in church & even took a picture of “Flat Stanley” for my grandson for his school project. I still have the photo of them all! Just can’t imagine the void she’ll leave but I pray that the love, fond memories that you all shared with this dear child— and the peace & comfort of our Lord will sustain you all during this difficult time. Audryanna surely is seated at a very special place at that glorious table with our Heavenly Father & our Savior. One day we’ll all see her again & I know I will recognize that sweet face!! Take care & God bless.
