The Culpeper Soccer Club described Kaylin and her passions in the fundraiser description:

"Kaylin loved soccer, arts and crafts, and was always trying to redecorate her room. She loved taking care of her younger sisters, and her two best friends were Trinity and Kendall. Kaylin was 12 years old, and she played the game with a quiet determination that inspired her teammates and coaches."
