Kayla Elizabeth Harris born on February 2, 2008 entered into peace on October 30, 2021 at the tender age of 13. Daughter of Dustin Harris and Kelly Harris of Schertz Texas. Kayla leaves behind her 10-year old sister Haley Mae Harris and many other family members and friends to be gathered into the arms her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Kayla was a warrior for our Lord in this world. She will always be Daddy’s bear cub, Momma’s cuddle-up-against, and Haley’s Kay-Kay. Kayla decorated the lives of so many with memories they will carry forever. She shared her God-given light selflessly, throughout every life circumstance including her battle with AML and further medical complications.
Quick to make friends of teachers, care givers, and others along the way. Kayla’s kindness, integrity, and compassion was immeasurable and remarkable.
Kayla’s aspirations were to be a large animal veterinarian, attend Texas A&M University, and spread the Love of the Lord. Her short term goal was to join FFA and show Beef-master heifers so she could start her own registered herd on a ranch in the years to come. We can only imagine what her ranch is like in heaven.
Kayla was known for her out-of-the-blue animal facts, amazing hugs, and her unending desire to learn. Becoming bilingual, as well as learning how to sew, crochet, and build a chicken coop by herself are prime examples of this ability.
Those who knew Kayla will have many words to describe who she was to them.
Our word for her—Irreplaceable.
“I know where I’ll be when I die, Momma. In the arms of Jesus.” Kayla Elizabeth Harris
