Rosalie Avila took her own life after years of bullying.

The family of a girl who attempted to take her own life after a catalog of bullying are being targeted by sick trolls.

"My daughter is a victim of bullying ... the world lost a treasure", Charlene Avila wrote on a GoFundMe page after the death of her child, Rosalie Avila, an eighth grader at Mesa View Middle School in Yucaipa.

Charlene said she couldn't understand how someone could be so mean to her. "As a mom, I'm still asking myself, like, 'What went wrong?'"

"She kept a journal or a diary of the people who hurt her and people that called her ugly and just putting her down", Rosalie's mom told ABC 13. "The braces are going to come off", and she said, "Yeah, but my teeth are straight and they're still making fun of me'".

Rosalie, a reportedly very considerate and kind person, even left a suicide note apologizing to her parents.

"Sorry, Mom and Dad".

"I'm here today angry because my daughter is no longer with me and angry because of these bullies continuing to bully", says Freddie Avila. According to KCBS, someone sent Avila's parents an image on social media that read, "Hey mom. Next time don't tuck me in this", with a photo of a bed, "Tuck me in THIS", with a edited picture of Rosalie's face pasted over someone pointing to a grave. "That's a vision you never want to see from your daughter in her bedroom", Charlene Avila said. "When you are being harassed and intimidated in school and in any form on social media, it's very hard to get away from that".

As well as missing the second Test, which begins in Hamilton on Saturday, Holder has been fined 60 per cent of his match fee. Southee, who replaces George Worker in the squad, missed the first Test following the birth of his first child.

Her parents have turned the journal over to police - and told CBS they hope the school district will do something to prevent further bullying, saying not enough was done to help their daughter.

"I did everything I'm supposed to do as a father, and these people did not respond because those bullies are still at the school", Freddie commented.

Her parents said they would donate her organs.

The family is now trying to raise money to cover funeral and medical expenses.

Rosalie had been bullied repeatedly for years and the pain finally became too much to handle, CBS Los Angeles reported.

The middle school released a statement in the days after her death to say grief counselors will be available to anyone who needs them. She was a great artist, very lovable & loving. She was a attractive person inside and out.

The family says dozens of people have contacted them saying their children are being bullied as well, especially on social media. She was daddy's girl and mommy's princess. It was Avila's father who woke up to screaming in the middle of the night and found her hanging in her room. She wanted to be a lawyer and wanted to help the world to be a better place.
