First Thanksgiving in Heaven-2006 / Robin Wessel (Cousin)
This is your first Thanksgiving in Heaven, It's my first one to be without you near; Thank-you so much for each memory you have given, God is with me and then dries each tear.
We will be together again someday, dear, That time between us may not be long; Each thought of you does give me cheer, Angels surround me and keep my Faith strong.
You gave your love to everyone here on earth, Today, I would love to whisper in your ear; Telling you how God's Love buoys me on with Hope, I miss you, but enjoy Thanksgiving Day in Heaven, dear. Close
Dear Father who art in Heaven... Please join our family on this Thanksgiving Day and bless each one as we sit down to pray as we remember those who have joined you above so dearly missed and deeply loved.
Please provide us strength on this Thanksgiving Day Bless us with memories of those faraway... Please grant patience to family and friends as we grieve and help us reach out to others who are bereaved.
We give thanks to you on this Thanksgiving Day.... For Your presence in our lives each and everyday. For Your comfort, guidance, and never ending love... And for taking care of our loved ones...in Heaven above.
As we light this candle on this Thanksgiving Day... And it glows in memory of those in Heaven today.... May their lights always shine down on us and give us light... And may we feel their presence along with yours tonight.
May the peace and tranquility of this Thanksgiving Day Be an everlasting light within each of us along the way... Lets bow our heads and give our Thanks to God above. For our blessings, whether on earth or in Heaven above... Amen Close
Bad things about Kyle / Marilyn Smith (Mother)
I don't know who in their right mind light 2 candles to my son and signed them One from me and the other from his Aunt Brenda. Brenda and I we both love Kyle to death and we never would be glad he died. If this is how you feel then put your own name on there and not people who loved him. If you have a proplem with Kyle then stay off this sight. the worst day of our livesOn June 4 2006 when Kyle passed away was the worst day of our lives, and I don't know of any one who was happy. We have enough problems dealing with his loss and don't need people like you! This is how all the family feels. Close

A letter to my Kyle / Anna Smith (grandmother)
To My Dearest Kyle,
Grandma is trying to move on, but it is so hard knowing the Thanksgiving and X-mas is coming up and you won't be with us this year. I know that you are being well taken care of, but it is so hard.
Makenz is keeping me on my toes all the time. She sure has a little of you and her mixed. Boy do I have my hands full, but I wouldn't have it any other way. We are going to put up the lights on Sunday. It will not be the same this year because we will be short a set of little hands that was always willing to heop Grandpa and Grandma.
I'm so proud of your Mom and Dad, and your sisters.for the way they are doing. Grandma is just a BIG CRY BABY!!!!!!. Aunt Laura got you a Turckey so g-ma and g-pa fixed it up and took it out the your grave, along with items from everyone else. X-mas Mom got you a tree and g-ma has more items to put out there for you.Your grave is so beatiful with all the items from everyone that loves you so much little Man. After the holidays it sure will get a lot better for g-ma. Then all I have to do is wait until Feb. 7th. Maybe then when that day comes and goes g-ma will be better with the whole deal of losing my grandson at a VERY YOUNG AGE. I know that you are being taken care of and I see your bright star every nite. It is so pretty and very bright just like you are and will always be.
When Feb.7th comes and goes than g-ma will be able to say everthing, that I have bottled up inside of me. We all know that your parents did a great job raising you and your sisters, so what ever anyone thinks they should have there own kids and see what it is like to raise children, good bad and then losing one of them.
Well honey g-ma has to go for now, but I just want you to know that I think of you always and my love for you is still as strong today as it was the nite at the hospital when I took you in my arms to hold you for the last time.
My promise to you Kyle / Christy Smith (Aunt)Read >>
My promise to you Kyle / Christy Smith (Aunt)
I made you a promise that I would be there for your parents and your sisters. I plan on keeping that promise. You ment so much to so many people. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you, and them dimples. Now we only have Kenzer to make fun of for haveing them. I hope that everyday you hear her talk about her Kyle. She loves you and misses you more than you will know. When we go and visit you she gives you kisses and talks to you as if you were standing right besides her. I know that you are having fun in heaven with all of you new friends, haveing a fishing competition with grandma and grandpa. Kenzer had fun trick-or-treating. She kept wanting to go see Kyle and give him some candy. I hope you and your friends enjoy the gifts that are left for you. In Feb. the whole family will feel lots better. This may sound crazy to some people, but I am glad that I seen you shortly after the accident and that you paid me a visit at work when I was feeling down. Knowing that you are fine and happy makes me feel lots better about losing you so suddenly. You know that the Holidays are crazy for the whole family, but we will manage to have fun and always think of the crazy little boy that should be here driving us crazy wanting to eat all the PICKLES AND MORE PICKLES than anything else. Like before Kyle I promised to take care of your silly and crazy sisters and your parents. You know our family is crazy, but we are there for each other no matter what happens. Enjoy your new friends and remember your loving family loves you and we miss you soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much.
I LOVE YOU MORE THAN ANY ONE WILL EVER KNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I Laid a Rose on your Grave Today / Robin Wessel (Cousin)
I Laid a Rose On Your Grave Today, But that’s not what I wanted to do. I wanted to tickle you, play with you, laugh with you, read to you, sing to you, too.
I laid a rose on your grave today and said a little prayer, I wished so much with all my heart, that you were here, not there.
I laid a rose on your grave today, The tears falling from my eyes. I will never understand what took you away and left us with broken hearts and sighs.
I laid a rose on your grave today. Forget you I can not do. Each day, each week, each month Your Grandma says “I Love You." Close

Just wanted to write a note to you / Robin Wessel (Cousin)
Hey Kyle, Well I changed your background music cause I thought your site needed a change. I think after 5 months of the same song was enough. I really hope everyone enjoys the song as much as I do. Just wanted to write you a short note and wanted to let you know that I am thinking about you!! I MISS YOU BUNCHES AND LOVE YOU BUNCHES!! Hope you are having fun up there with all your new angel friends and Please watch over your mom while she is in Lincoln and watch over your sister she misses you alot!!
Love you always and Forever Robin
P.S. I told your boyfriend he was gay and he slapped me with your purse!!!(that is still Jason's favorite joke that you told him) I got something for you! Close
Every child is a gift... / DJ
"Every child is a gift... created by the hands of God and given to touch the world with His love." It is better to celebrate the time you had than to mourn the time you don't have. Know for yourself the truth. Klye brought so much happiness and love to your family, and everyone he met in the eight years of his life. He lived the best years of a persons life and yet never had to experience any of the horrible things we see every day that he would have seen growing up. It is hard but I assure you Klye is dancing with the angels. God keeps his promise. "The streets will be filled with boys and girls playing there." Zechariah 8:5
5 Months / Robin Wessel (Cousin)
Hey Hanum Man, Just thought I would write you a little note, It has been 5 Months and 1 day since you recieved your wings. It still feels like yesterday that you were at my house on your bike talking to Jason and looking all bummed out cause it was your birthday and you were bored. I can truely say this has been the longest 5 months of my life. Your mom, dad and sisters have gone through so much since that day. There have been so many court days (there are still two more court dates on November 8th and One in January) and other stuff going on that I don't think any of us have truley been able to sit down and really go through the greiving process. I know that I have not and I dont think I really want to cause I want to continue to think that this is just one big dream and hopefully I will wake up sometime soon. Dont get me wrong I know that this is not a dream and the pain will never get easier. Your sister Shelby has been so brave with all the stuff she has had to go through with court. I am very proud of her. This event will always sit in the back of my mind and feel like it was just yesterday. I think that the reason this hurts so much is because you were just a child. I have questioned god so many times cause I could not understand why he allowed this to happen to you and your family, but then I realize that this was not gods plan it just happened. When you fell in that water he did not plan for you to die but you did. He just knew that if you lived you would not have been the same boy that we all loved so very much, and he knew that that would hurt us so much more. So he chose to give you your Happy, health life up in heaven where you could watch over your sisters and the rest of your family. I know that Charlie is really young and he does not understand what happened to you, all he knows is that you are gone in heaven and you are watching over him from up above. Sometimes he even tells me that you are coming back, but when you ask him when he says that he does not know. Now for Elek He really does not understand either. He really doesnt know who you are except for the pictures that he see's , and I think he even see's you at times cause he will start crying and pointing at the air. I will make one promise to you Kyle I will never let Charlie forget you and when he gets older I will tell him all about you and how you were an awsome cousin. I will also do the same with Elek!! And if I have anymore children they will know who you are. Well Kyle I need to be going for now, We love you and miss you bunches and bunches.
GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN / Mommy (parent)
Gone but Not Forgotten
Gone but Not Forgotten Dedicated To KYLE
You were so full of life, Always smiling and carefree, Life loved you being a part of it, And I loved you being a part of me. You could make anyone laugh, If they were having a bad day, No matter how sad I was, You could take the hurt away. Nothing could every stop you, Or even make you fall, You were ready to take on the world, Ready to do it all. But God decided he needed you, So from this world you left, But you took a piece of all of us, Our hearts are what you kept. Your seat is now empty, And it's hard not to see your face, But please always know this, No one will ever take your place. You left without a warning, Not even saying good-bye, And I can't seem to stop, Asking the question why? Nothing will ever be the same, The halls are empty without your laughter, But I know you're in Heaven, Watching over us and looking after. I didn't see this coming, It hit me by surprise, And when you left this world, A small part of me died. Your smile could brighten anyone's day, No matter what they were going through, And I know everyday for the rest of my life, I'll be missing you.
5 months / Mommy &. Daddy (parents)
Kyle it has ben 5 months since you left us to be in a much better place. Not a day goes by that we don't think or speak about you. You left us with very big holes in our hearts. You were the world to us. When ever we go to Hastings you can bet if the girls get something that You do to. Just like if you were here. We have you a Christmas tree for your grave. I found a little stuffed dog that sings "Who let the dogs out", and I just had to buy it. We went to look at a different house and we are making sure that it has a bedroom for you . We have your room full of things that you loved. Uncle Kurt brought you a whole box of Dale Jr. items and all the things that we have got since you past. I still have all your clothes in the closet just like you left them. You were a normal boy never cared what you clothes looked like and you never would put them away. Kyle please be with every one as we go thru the hoidays with out you. They will not be the same. This will be the hardest for us all. Just remember that we all love and miss you a lot. Please let every one feel your presence and let them all know that you are doing well. Take care of all your Angels friends son. You all ways cared about every one and I know that is why god needed you for a Angel! Love and miss you with all our hearts! Love always, MOMMY AND DADDY XOXOXOXOXOXOX Close

Listen with your Heart / Robin Wessel (Cousin)
Listen with Your Heart
Memories are treasures Time cannot take away, So may you be surrounded By happy ones today.
May all the love and tenderness Of golden years well spent, Come back today to fill your heart With beauty and content.
And may you walk down memory lane And meet the one you love, For while you cannot see him, He’ll be watching from above.
So for his sake be happy And show him that his love, Has proven strong and big enough, To reach down from above.
All heaven was in mourning, The day that young man died; When He closed His eyes, they said, Ten thousand angels cried.
The angels shed their many tears, Because He was God's Son; But there is a special sadness, When God takes the very young. At times like that, I question God, Why let a child die? I cannot understand it, And I need to ask Him why. I, too, have heard the angels cry, I've heard them cry first hand; For I, too, gave up a child, And I've tried hard to understand. Yes, I received God's comfort, Though I'm grateful, I want more; I want reasons; I want meaning, I am a parent who's heart-sore. God can give, and God can take, I am well aware of this; But, why my baby ... why my child? Why did God put him on His list? Did I love my child too much? Was he too good for this old earth? Had his purpose here been filled? Was that why he was taken first? I awake each day with questions, I fall asleep at night, the same; So many times I ask God why, I'm both saddened and ashamed. But then, in reflective moments, When my prayers are most intense, One word keeps going through my mind, Patience ... patience ... patience. Maybe now is not the time, To explain this great heartache; Even if I knew God's reasons, What difference would it make? Can't I just be grateful, For any time we had? Accept God's action without question? Why is that so very bad? What's my hurry ... why my pressure? Is my faith not strong enough? God will explain it when He's ready, Surely I can trust that much. God understands my broken heart, He, too, gave up a Son; He knows the pain of one lost child, He weeps with me, and we are one. Just as I talk to God each day, I talk to my precious child; I blow him kisses, and I say, "See you, honey, in a while."
