Maliah was a very beautiful, happy, intelligent young lady. I was fortunate enough to have met the precious soul. I will miss her big smile, that she ALWAYS wore.
I MISS YOU ANGEL! My prayers be with you and your family.

Maliah you will always be missed. I remembered the night before your death you was at our house and you didnt want what the other kids wanted to eat, but auntie Lisa had some peanut butter that you wanted, You said your prayers and sat down at the table and ate like an angel. Love Auntie Lisa and Uncle POOCHIE.
