It is a struggle to find the words to describe Hailey. Hailey was truly one of a kind, her outside beauty shined, but it was her inner beauty that made her special. It might sound cliché, but those who knew her knows this to be true. She had the biggest heart and loved unconditionally. She desired to make every person she met feel special. Although she often suffered from headaches, she never failed to muster up the energy to greet everyone with a big smile, and whenever she could with a big heartfelt hug. She would go out of her way to complement people whether she knew them or not about anything big or small; there was not anyone or anything that would stop her when she felt compelled. She was a friend to many, but she yearned to help anyone in any way she could. She loved to share words of encouragement and found the way to offer them at precisely the right time. She loved to ask genuine questions; it allowed her to get to know you. It also might give her a random fact, which she liked to share. She so was brilliant, loved to laugh, sing, and obviously dance. Most of all she loved spending time as a family and the Lord. And she was so amazingly loved by her family and friends.
Whether she knew it or not, her impact on this world exceeded her 11 years on it.
