This page is all about all of the loving and wonderful tributes that have been paid and are being paid to sweet Haylee in the past as well as every single day and every day to come...
Mommy bought Haylee a real star in the sky, named after Haylee.
Mommy & Daddy had a bronze headstone engraved with 12 of Haylee's beautiful photographs so that all who pass by her resting place can see their little Angel's sweetness and beauty.
Mommy bought a special bench that's placed at Haylee's Gravesite. It has "Mazzella" carved into it and the Bible verse, "Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not, for such is the Kingdom of Heaven." Haylee used to love to sit on Pop's (her grandfather, Sonya's Dad) bench at the cemetary so Mommy bought her her own bench.
HAYLEE'S PINK REMEMBRANCE TREE
Haylee's Mommy & MeMaw keep a tree decorated at Haylee's gravesite all the time, in pink just for Haylee.
A student of Mommy's, Claire Cullison, became a lifeguard in honor of Haylee and to help save other children from dying the way that little Haylee did.
HAYLEE'S BABY DEDICATION

HAYLEE'S SHELF AT SHELBY'S HOUSE
Shelby Easley, Haylee's cousin and best friend in the whole world, has a special shelf in her room that she calls her "Haylee Shelf." No one is allowed to touch it. There is a pink talking horse on it that MeMaw had bought for Haylee a few days before the accident - Sonya gave it to little Shelby the day after Haylee died and said that she knew Haylee would want Shelby to have it. Shelby also painted a picture of Haylee and herself for the shelf - there's a picture of it on this page - she painted such a wonderful picture for her best friend. Shelby says the shelf and all of the Haylee tribute items on it are the very 1st thing she sees when she wakes up in the morning and the last thing she sees before she falls asleep at night. (She has the shelf hung at eye level to her top bunk bed).
HAYLEE'S PINK DINOSAUR
Little Thomas Mazzella the 4th (Bubba) painted a dinosaur for Haylee and has it on a special shelf in his room. He painted the dinosaur pink, of course! He did such a good job on it for Haylee.

That one little ribbon holds such richness of so many beautiful memories, and it holds tremendous sadness at this horrible loss.
Countless caring people have lit candles for Haylee and her family at her memorial website created by her Mommy & her MeMaw. The site is at:
Each candle means a lot to Haylee, her Mommy, her Daddy, her brother Bubba, her MeMaw, and all of Haylee's loved ones.

HAYLEE'S FRIEND ANDRE
He was her "boyfriend," her most favorite friend from school, Andre Bustamante. They played Mary & Joseph in the school Christmas play together. Andre's tribute is his door to his bedroom is covered with pictures of Haylee that his mom is not allowed to touch. Over 2 years after he last saw her, he still visits Haylee's resting place and brings her flowers.
Haylee's Mommy had Haylee's cross put onto this background and is saving it for Haylee's little brother to wear when he is old enough. Haylee's Pop bought the cross for her.
SONYA'S BUTTERFLY RINGS
Haylee's Mommy, Sonya, wears 2 butterfly rings for Haylee. Haylee bought Mommy the purple one because she knew purple was her Mommy's favorite color. Haylee's little brother, Bubba, bought her the pink one in honor of Mommy's new favorite color, pink - just like Haylee's favorite color. Butterflies symbolize "new life."
HAYLEE'S DANCE SCHOLARSHIP
Haylee attended the Debby Dillehay School of Dance and after she died Debby Dillehay and MeMaw (Bonnie Easley) instituted a Scholarship in Haylee's name. Each May at the recital, a child is given a scholarship in Haylee's name. Debby chooses the child who is four years old and has shown the most improvement in the last year. Every year MeMaw sends money for the scholarship to Debby. MeMaw thought this was a really neat way to remember Haylee through her dance.
HAYLEE'S FAVORITE STORY
Haylee's favorite story was "The Crippled Lamb" by Max Lucado. (Haylee Girl always called it "The Crooked Lamb") MeMaw donated a copy of the book and also its video to Haylee's favorite teacher, Barbara Schayot. Mrs. Schayot keeps them in her classroom at Crescent City Christian School (4 year old Pre-K class) and reads them to her students and lets them watch the video each year. These were given in honor and remembrance of Haylee.
For my birthday on 2/8/09, Sonya and MeMaw gave me this tribute to Haylee: a pink sweatshirt with a dandelion on it (they know one of my all-time favorite pictures of Haylee is the one of her blowing on a dandelion - it makes me cry just to write that!). They had special lettering done that says "Haylee's Dandelion."
In this pic, you can also see my Haylee locket they gave me for Christmas, and Haylee's earrings that they also gave me for Christmas. I am so proud to wear these tributes to the finest baby girl there ever was or will be.
MOMMY'S NEW WEDDING RING VALENTINE'S DAY 2009
For Valentine's Day, 2009, Daddy bought Mommy a new wedding ring. It is dedicated to you because the name of the design is "Angel Halo." Mommy was so happy! What a sweet and wonderful gift from Daddy.
|Valentine's Tribute from Eva that I adore!|
These are JoJo's (Joseph Bryant, Haylee's adored cousin) necklaces. The guitar pick one is one that MeMaw had made for him after Haylee died... she used to find his guitar picks laying around the house. She called them "hearts." When she'd find one, she'd say, "I found JoJo's heart!" So MeMaw had one of his guitar picks made into a necklace for him. On the back is a ruby (Haylee's birthstone) & a saying, "Haylee's Heart." The other necklace with the music note is also from MeMaw. The pearl on the necklace is from one of Haylee's pairs of pearl earrings.

The next 2 pictures are of Eva Mercedesz' antique gold tribute locket that she wears for Haylee. Beautiful.
HAYLEE'S PINK GARDEN
March & April 2009
At Haylee's resting place, her Mommy, MeMaw, Daddy, & little brother Bubba have been planting a lot of pink flowers in her garden for her - such a sweet labor of love for a little girl who loves pink.
HAYLEE'S TRIBUTE SHELF AT EVA'S CALLED "HAYLEE'S MEMORIES"
Eva Mercedesz has created the most complete & the most loving tribute I could ever imagine for little Haylee Girl. She got items to represent all of things that Haylee loved, that were important to Haylee, or were big parts of Haylee's little life. She will be adding more to it & I will update the photos accordingly. Here is Eva's list of things that are in the cabinet for Haylee:
-rabbit (Haylee loved MeMaw's rabbits)
-tweety (Pop called Haylee Tweety Bird)
-pig tails (Haylee's best hairstyle)
-pony (Haylee loved ponies)
-dragontails (favorite TV show)
-worm (Haylee loved to play with worms) -turtle (she loved turtles)
-apple (at school each child had an apple next to their name on a board. If they misbehaved the teacher moved the apple. Haylee was so proud her apple was never moved in a whole year of school)
-little lamb (for Haylee's favorite story)
-a little piece of pink ribbon (Haylee always wore pink ribbons)
-"hip pa ma pot a mas! :) (Haylee mispronounced hippopotamus when she was tiny)
-In the frame you can see a swing (Haylee loved to swing at MeMaw's)
and in the frame's right corner you can see a ballet dress (Haylee was a dancer)
-3 baby dinos (Haylee adored dinosaurs)
-a little moon (she used to say "God bless the moon and God bless me" & "I love you to the moon and back"
- a little thing about Halloween (Haylee loved Halloween)
-a cancer (Haylee's astrological sign)
-4 "injun turtles"!! :D (that's how Haylee said "Ninja Turtles" which she loved because her cousin JoJo loved them)
- a long neck dino (Haylee's fave kind of dino)
- duck (Haylee had 2 ducks named Spirit and Ducken - named them herself!)
-lipstick (Haylee loved to wear Mommy & MeMaw's lipstick)
This is Haylee's yellow ribbon & pink ponytail elastic kept in a treasure box at Shelli's house.
This is Haylee's little long-necked dinosaur, hair scrunchy she wore to dance all the time, and plastic bunny necklace / headband (she wore it as both depending on what she felt like at the time). They sit on top of my (Shelli) computer as a constant reminder of the little girl who loved them so.
Sonya (Haylee's Mommy) made this pink butterfly pin & sent it to me. She actually made a lot of them for her Compassionate Friends group (a group of bereaved parents who meet monthly) & she sent me another one, which I gave to Eva. So pretty & made with so much love for Sonya's beautiful daughter.
This is one of Haylee's pencils. She had these at school with her. MeMaw was so sweet to share one of them with me even though she only has one other pencil.
This is Haylee's jewelry chest, bought for her by MeMaw as a surprise that she would get for her 5th birthday. MeMaw never got to give it to her. It now sits next to MeMaw's bed in her bedroom. Haylee's favorite dolly (also from MeMaw) "NuNu" (named after her beloved pacifier) sits right on top. Haylee loved jewelry and she would have been so excited by this beautiful and loving gift from her MeMaw.
|For Annual Memorial Walk, 10-5-09|
|Hat made for annual memorial walk 10-5-09|
For Christmas 2009, MeMaw got this silver charm bracelet for Sonya & for me. It has 4 charms on it: a dinosaur, a lizard, a ballerina, and a pink butterfly. I was totally speechless & in awe when the bracelet arrived; what a perfect & loving tribute to a dear little girl's favorite things.
