On October 27, 2001, Khayla Rose Choi was born in Makati, Philippines. She spent the first eight years of her life in Manila, Philippines. She moved to Torrance in 2009, where she lived with her family for two years before relocating to Mariposa, where she lived for the remainder of her life.

She has touched many people around the world with her elegance.

On March 14, 2015, Khayla Rose Choi departed her physical body suddenly to join God at the age of 13.

Khayla was a being of love; every moment shared with her was blessed with life and laughter. She was filled with light, humor, and peace. She never had a mean word to say, and always saw the very best in people.

Khayla was a lover of God, animals and nature, as well as a talented artist, actress, director, photographer, craftswoman, flautist, equestrian and figure skater.

Khayla was a lover of all cuisines and a queen of humor and subtlety. Often she spent her free time writing stories, or in her journal, or to God. She pondered how humanity and nature could come to live in harmony. She was a very unique and understanding person, a river of insight and wisdom. Khayla truly lived for love and believed so deeply in it.

Khayla had a small army of friends and no enemies. She was constantly surrounded by animals who flocked to her presence. Though often very quiet and introspective on her own, with family and friends she was always patient, caring and outgoing.

Khayla will be remembered by parents Peni and Mark, her brothers Aaron, Michael and Joseph, as well as cousins, friends and her darling Maltese, Puffy.

Khayla was preceded in death by her grandparents, Victor and Josephine Mayo.

A service will be held for Khayla. The date is to be determined. For more information, send an email to choi.aaron3@gmail.com.
