Shaylauna loved spending time with her daughter and was so proud of her. She enjoyed listening to music with her friends and she had the most contagious laugh! She had a really big heart and was compassionate about all others. She was willing to help anyone in need even when she was having a hard time. She made friends anywhere she went. When she was a little girl she was a fancy shawl dancer and was hoping to begin dancing again. She was the oldest and loved all her sisters and brothers, she was overprotective of them.
