She was always the first one there when you needed a hug and kiss.
Kayla Titsworth, 3, was at the Murrah Building with her family in the Army’s recruiting office when the bomb exploded. Sgt. William Titsworth was at the U.S. Army Recruiting Battalion to report for his new assignment in Oklahoma City after transferring from Fort Riley, KS, said Col. John Meyers, director of public affairs for the Army Recruiting Command in Fort Knox, KY. Titsworth, his wife – Gloria Titsworth, who was Kayla’s mother – and Kayla were in the office’s processing unit, probably filling out paperwork, at the time of the bombing, Meyers said. William and Gloria Titsworth survived the blast.
