Messages in memory of Nada Mayla
June 20, 2020
Nada Marie Christiane Mayla was my Lovely, Cute, Innocent,Wise, Understanding, Smart and Loving daughter. Nada loved her sisters, her Father, her mother, her Granny, her niece and God-daughter , her nephews, her cousins, her doctors and her friends with genuine, sincere and unbelievable love.
Nada was creative and inspiring young lady. She was a person born with mosaic Down syndrome, who faced numerous challenges with courage and determination
Nada worked very hard and achieved all her goals whether it was in learning languages (she spoke four languages and was starting her fifth), in photography (Montreal Camera Club), in theatre (in Rare, in Shakespeare’s Midsummer’s Night Dream, playing two characters Hermia and the Fairy) in Maya Angelou’s the Caged Bird), in art, going to the Museum of Fine Arts in Montreal every week and doing activities, in swimming competitions, or in basketball.
Nada was an Ambassador for the Down Syndrome Association. She offered presentations at York University to advocate for persons with Down Syndrome, participated in the project “My life in the City” and last year spoke at a conference, in Ottawa, in honour of her doctor in Paris, late Professor Jérôme Lejeune.
Nada loved photography. All through her difficult times with cancer she still continued photography and became proudly a Class B photographer at the Montreal Camera Club.
Above all, Nada’s love was what defined her. She had an unconditional love for all, even for the persons she just met. Nada taught us that love is the only thing that really matters in this world and if we could all love like her, the world would be a much better place and that would be thanks to Nada Marie Christiane Mayla.

Dear Mona, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your sister and I am thinking of you. I send you my heartfelt condolences. With much warmth, Mia

Dear Mona, Russell and Family,
My deepest condolences for your loss. May Nada's memory be eternal. God bless her.
We saw the play Rare - shortly after we received my son's diagnosis of Down syndrome (he was just a few weeks old). It was a turning point for my husband and I. Seeing Nada and her fellow actors on the stage helped us to start seeing my son as a person and not a diagnosis. It changed my life and I will never forget it. She left a legacy that many may never be able to express to you - but that we hold in our hearts.

I am so sorry for the enormous loss. Nada was a gifted photographer and I will miss doing projects with her. She lightened every day and calmed many storms. I know she is resting peacefully and pain free with her Dad in heaven until we all see her again.
My prayers are with you and your family

Nada loved her family, my deepest sympathies on your loss.
I will miss the joy and smiles Nada brought into my life. I loved talking with her on our drive to swimming and the meals we shared. She taught me how wonderful life is with compassion and laughs.
