Kaia Elizabeth Lauro
It is with profound sadness that we announce the loss of our beautiful princess warrior, Kaia Elizabeth Lauro. She passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her Mommy, Daddy and family on October 28.
Kaia was born in Greenwich on June 11, 2015, to Brian and Heather Lauro. She was a student at Head O’ Meadow Elementary School as well as an equestrian with One Above Farm. She loved all things horse related, was a master seamstress and an amazing student. Kaia also prided herself on being a wonderful friend and a perfect sister to her brother cat Ollie. If you asked her what she wanted to be when she grew up, she would tell you a doctor, a nurse, a horse instructor, an acrobat, a chef or a waiter. We told her you can do it all!
Kaia will be remembered as the brightest light in the room. To know her was to adore her. Her joy for life radiated from within her and was felt by all around her. Her positive spirit was contagious and her laugh was infectious. She fought her medical battle with the tenacity of a lion and all the while displayed nothing but grace, dignity and positivity that lifted anyone around her. For all she dealt with, she never complained once. She is a superhero like none we have ever known.
Her legacy of courage, strength and bravery will live on forever in our hearts. She will always be with us guiding us as she always has. She is our greatest gift and we are all better humans to have known her. It’s time for her to go now be a child free from worry albeit the loss we feel is immeasurable. We must focus on celebrating her memory always.
Family and friends are invited to attend a visitation on Wednesday, November 8, from 10 am to 12 pm, at Honan Funeral Home, 58 Main Street in Newtown. This will be followed by a celebration of life at her favorite place to have pizza and soft pretzels: NewSylum, 36 Keating Farms Avenue in Newtown.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Kaia’s name to: Tommy’s Place Foundation, Inc, 90 Shore Avenue, Quincy MA 02169, or Tommysplace.org.
She spent one of the best weeks of her life vacationing there with family and we’d love for other families to be able to experience that same joy.
