The public is invited to honor the life of Kayla Gomez-Orozco at memorial services set for this week.

A visitation service is set for 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at Stewart Family Funeral Home, 7525 Old Jacksonville Highway.

The funeral service is set for 2 p.m. Wednesday at Lanes Chapel United Methodist Church, 8720 Old Jacksonville Highway. The service was relocated there to accommodate an anticipated large crowd.

The funeral will be followed by a graveside service at Rose Lawn Cemetery on Blue Mountain Boulevard, near Dr. Bryan C. Jack Elementary School where Kayla was in fourth grade. 

The funeral is open to the public. In a Facebook post, family asked attendees to wear appropriate, respectful colors, rather than pink, which had been encouraged at other events associated with Kayla.
