I have been in disbelief and shock all week. Feeling emotions I can't stop feeling for this beautiful, young, fragile girl. And her parents, for sure.
I only hope if the pain on the Earth was too much to bear, then I hope that Heaven can bring you the peace you wanted. And that your beauty continues as a star above.

Did she do this to commit suicide? Or did someone push her as a joke or something?

Attention must be paid!!!!! If anyone suspects a friend or classmate is in trouble please get help!

This is tragic. Many suffer from depression and other forms of emotional pain. Help is possible.

Lyla, you were friends with my sister and you treated me like a friend. For that, I feel like your friend and I feel it necessary to say that I miss you. You were a great person and you were surrounded by people who loved you. I hope that your in a better place and that I will see you again. RIP Lyla. I will always feel like your friend.
