Haylee Danyelle Mazzella was born 7-13-01 to Tommy & Sonya Mazzella, in Louisiana. She was special from that first moment...One of the most wonderful things about Haylee was that she was always, always, always smiling! She was such a sweet little girl; no one ever saw her be mean to anybody. She loved everybody; she adored her family; she loved animals. She was the most beautiful child we have ever seen!

Haylee drowned on 6-3-06 at a barbeque that some relatives were having. At a little after 4:00 p.m., Haylee's mommy told Haylee it was time to get out of the pool as her little brother needed to have his diaper and wet clothes changed for the ride home. Haylee begged for just 10 more minutes of swimming, and her step-grandmother said she would watch her. Haylee's mommy reluctantly said yes and went into the house. She was gone less than 10 minutes. In that short time, Haylee's step-grandmother decided to go into the house as well, and she left Haylee unsupervised in the swimming pool. Haylee's mommy started hearing people yelling "Call 911!" & came back outside, thinking someone had hurt their foot or some other minor thing. Instead she saw her 4 year old daughter laying on the ground having CPR done on her. She was lifeless. Paramedics rushed her to the hospital but it was too late... Baby Girl had been under the water for too long & she just didn't have the strength to come back & stay here where she belongs. She was only 4 years old and would have turned five in a little over a month.

I've spent hours reading everything that I can find about your baby Haylee. I sat in my car yesterday and read all the quotes Haylee said like "Let's go find a lizard" and "How 'but we do that again!". Tears poured out and makeup burned my eyes and the summer heat sweltered yet I couldn't stop, Haylee managed to enchant me as well. I also have a baby girl. She is 4 years and 7 months old. She is the center of mine, her father's and her maternal grandmother's ("Na-Na") world. So so much like your Haylee girl. I drove home and woke her from her nap and held onto her. I am mourning with you Sonya, Tommy and MeMaw. A stranger, 1,100 miles away, yet also effected by this unfathomable tragedy. There are no words to say that are adequate. I'll never forget her.

In my last message, I said that you would be 13 today. Well, I thought about it and realized that you'd actually be 14. Oops, how silly of me :) Happy *14th Birthday, sweetheart.

Hello little one. I heard your story 6 or 7 years ago, and still I haven't forgotten you. I haven't forgotten that your birthday is on July 13th, and you left this Earth on June 3rd. Those dates are engraved in my mind and heart as "Haylee's days". I don't think I'll ever forget you, because the story of your short life touched my heart so profoundly. I think it's because your family, as well as many admirers around the world loved and still love you so much, I can see it in every tribute video, and website, and message that is made for you. I've never met you, but you must have been an extraordinary little girl to earn so much admiration. I've read descriptions
that say you were very kind, sweet and loving to everyone you knew. That's the type of person that I hope to be in my life too, and I admire you for being like that at only four years old. I imagine that you would have grown up to be an amazing woman, and it breaks my heart that you didn't get that chance. Happy Birthday, little princess. Today you would have been 13, around the same age that I was when I heard your story. As I grow up, I think of you often, a little girl whom I wish could have grown up too.

If any of Haylee's family members are reading this, I hope you find some comfort in knowing that people from all over the world adore your precious Haylee. I can't imagine how you've suffered, but I hope that you've also found peace and joy in the memory of her, and the love that you gave and got from her. If there's one thing that death can't take away, it's love.

Haylee was born the same year I was. She's a beautiful little girl and while I live my life as almost 14 teen year old i feel connected to Haylee because we would have been the same age, and while I would have never met her, I find myself praying for her. I wish I could have known her she is beutiful inside and out. Kaylee
