Sorry!!!! My e-mail address on the last thing I wrote was wrong. The one above this message is right.

Hi McKayla and Family!!! Happy Easter!!!!!!! McKayla, your family and friends mourn for you!!! I miss you so much. Today, I brought your mom, dad, and sister tulips in memory of you for easter. They were purple. My sister chose them for you! I pretty sure you liked purple. But they loved them. They also told me that they couldn't reflect on last year at Easter time because you had already left us. I miss you Kayla and God Bless you and your family!

It really is hard to believe that a year ago today we were at pinkam notch. That day we were completely unaware of the tragedy at hand. Most of that day, March 19th, and the following day is a blurr. But the things that stay with you are the sounds of the room. I don't remember everything because i was in a fog. I remember the night of her death, Mrs. Leknes tried to keep us entertained with the "little people game". Then later that night she french braided the girls hair. By that time she at least knew it was grave...we were blissfully ignorant and hoped for the best; no one would have guessed what really happened. That night gave knew meaning to the phrase "ignorance is bliss". That night the floor above us, the boys, was extremely loud. We could here them running up and down the hallway. We all thought that they were going to get in HUGE trouble. The next morning we were awakened by either Mrs. Curran or Mrs. Leknes. It was about 6:30...way to early for them to wake us. We all sluggishly walked into the main room. Mr. Dodge was the first thing we saw. No one had any idea why he was here, or at least no one suspected why he was really there, all we knew was that he wasn't there the night before. At this point i figured it had to be bad, the first thing that came to my mind was that the boys were being sent home...how unfortunate that i was wrong. I still don't know exactly what he said, or what he could have said...whatever he did was admirable. (After the fact we realized that he must have driven up that night to have come soo early.) Within seconds we could hear several loud shrieks. I pinched myself...praying it was a really bad nightmare, but it wasn't. As we all walked out, looking to be in a trance, i remember seeing Mrs. Humphreys. The terrified expression on her face was too much for any of us to bare. Weren't adults supposed to handle everything, know what to do. Her face scared me out of my trance-like state. This really happened...i couldn't believe it. The bus ride going there was soo loud and fun, the second bus ride was frighteningly silent; all there was to do was think which was a scary thing at the time. I will especially never forget running into my father's arms when we finally got to the gym. I had reassured myself earlier that i could be strong, that i didn't have to cry. When i saw my father something hit me, i didn't have to be strong. The tears came like the annual flooding in April. There was no stopping them until they had run their course. The next day was nice, we got to vent our feelings of grief and make cards for the Geisingers. Then we took a walk with our teachers. My group was with Mrs. Curran. Every day afterward just felt weird, "like she had gone on a long vacation" one of my friends said.

I know this note has been really long and i am sorry i guess i really just needed a way to vent my feelings. On days like today most people don't want to talk about it or write about it. I don't know why but this was a great way to get my feelings out. If you are reading this and have gotten this far, i would strongly recommend trying it. Everyone grieves in different ways. If you are really depressed i would try just about anything.

wow. I cannot believe that it has already been one year. McKayla, you are greatly missed, the hole in our hearts will never be replaced. Today, the eighth grade had a moment of silence for you in the morning after announcements. Did you hear our prayers?

I cannot imagine the feelings that are going through your family's hearts.Loosing a person as loving and thoughtful as you is truely heartbreaking. March 19th will never be the same.

I know I was never really one of your "Best Friends", but loosing you has left me with something that i can never replace, it brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it. I really wish that I got closer to you, because you were really a genuinely great person.

I can remember that day like it was yesterday. It was horrible. The feelings around the school were indiscribable. You really did make an impact on the school, even if you were only there for a year.

Missing you terribly, sending my best wishes to your family.

Filled with love, a Friend

Dear McKayla, Amanda, Mr. and Mrs. Geisinger, It has been one year since I remember looking at your daughter and sister last. I went to the camp and I was on the same bus with her. That was the last time I saw her. Those memories were great!!!!!!! I wish God hadn't taken you Kayla but you could have saved someone elses life! I love you!!!!! God be with you and your family!!!!! Love you always McKayla W. Geisinger!!! Jessi Dean P.S. I went to the Mass at your church today for the one year anniversery. Most of your friends went and some of your friends from soccer went too! It was great!!! Once again, God be with you and I love you forever Kayla!!!!!!!

KK I never met you and havent met mom in person yet she has become my sister as I am sure Wayman and Denise' are now part of your family.

I pray that you can find a way to let mom know that you are close. She misses you oh so much.

I am here with her to help her in every way I can so if you can help me with some guidance I would appreciate that too.

Fly in peace my angels of above and know that we will all rejoice in a reunion one day.

When my friend Moe sent a message asking us to share our fondness memories of you McKayla it only took a second to remember two very special days that you and Mandy lightened up my life. Although I work with your Mommy and didn't often get to see you and Amanda when I did it was always happy times. When you and Amanda were about 7 or 8 your mother wanted to make you special Halloween Costumes. It was a Holiday that you all enjoyed so much. She asked me to help and I brought my sewing machine over and we spent the entire day into the evening sewing two beautiful outfits. You wanted to be an Indian and Mandy a Cat what fun not only your mother and I enjoyed it but you girls had fun sewing some teddy bear kits I brought over. We may not be the best seamstress's but we had a ball doing it. - The other special time for me was when I had a trim a tree party at my new house with my girlfriends and your mother brought you and Mandy. She never goes anywhere without you girls. It was a good thing because you, Mandy and your Mother decorated my entire tree while everyone just stood around talking. It was a beautiful tree and I still have the pictures to prove it. Thanks you for the memories I will always cherish them. You are a special young lady who has touched so many people and I will always have a special place in my heart for you and your beautiful family. Peace - Love Ginny

Hi McKayla, tell mom that God promises consolations. In her dreams, tell her its ok to feel despair over despairing thoughts as long as we go about life.Feeling despair about despair does not take from our courage if we walk in the face of the despair. Tell mom many consolations are coming her and your families way. God bless say hi to my cousin Phillip for me!Love you Randy!

We do not need a special day To bring you to our minds. The days we do not think of you Are very hard to find.

Each morning when we awake, We know that you are gone. And no one knows the heartache As we try to carry on.

Our hearts still ache with sadness And secret tears still flow. What it meant to lose you No one will ever know.

Our thoughts are alwoys with you, Your place no one can fill. In life we loved you dearly; In death we love you still.

There will always be a heartache, And often a silent tear. But always a precious memory Of the days when you were here.

If tears could make a staircase, And heartaches make a lane, We'd walk the path to heaven And bring you home again.

We hold you close within our hearts; And there you will remain, To walk with us throughout our lives Until we meet again.

Our family chain is broken now, And nothing seems the same, But as GOD calls us one by one, The chain will link again.

An Honest Being-With a Friend

Being with a friend in great pain is not easy. It makes us uncomfortable. We do not know what to do or what to say, and we worry about how to respond to what we hear. Our temptation is to say things that come more out of our own fear than out of our care for the person in pain. Sometimes we say things like "Well, you're doing a lot better than yesterday," or "You will soon be your old self again," or "I'm sure you will get over this." But often we know that what we're saying is not true, and our friends know it too.

We do not have to play games with each other. We can simply say: "I am your friend, I am happy to be with you." We can say that in words or with touch or with loving silence. Sometimes it is good to say: "You don't have to talk. Just close your eyes. I am here with you, thinking of you, praying for you, loving you."

i'm sorry <3

When you were alive, heaven was missing an angel...

When you are gone,earth's missing one too...

If I could have only one thing...

It'd to be with you...

Even with you watching me...

Nothing is the same...

I feel so extremely dirty...

I feel like I'm to blame...

When will you come to me...

To comfort my aching soul...

I need you here, McKayla...

To make my heart be whole....

Hey McKayla

Just thinking back to that last day in walmart. I'm so thankful for that day<3 I dont know how much more hard it would be if i had gone one less day without seeing you. To think i said goodbye that morning thinking i wouldnt see you in a while makes me feel better but knowing now that when our parents said that our families needed to get together again soon its so sad that it took your passing to bring us to do that. I wish you were there.

It might sound crazy but when i feel upset about somthing i ususally go sit in my room and listen to music but lately i havnt been turning on my ipod. It seems like when its quiet i can feel you there with me. I can hear you laughing. You used to always laugh at my jokes (= you were easy to make laugh. You were also so good at making me laugh too. That silly dog you and i danced with at CCD. I've been looking everywhere for one of those dogs just to have. It's funny the song that it sang. "Im singing in the rain" When im thinking about it thats kind of what im doing. Though its still sad i just have to make the best of the memories come back.

On another note you would have been so proud of me! HA we went on a cruise last month and in keywest there are chickens EVERYWHERE! like swarming the streets and my little sister is afraid of them too. I knew if i was freaking out then she'd become more terrified so i just thought to myself over and over "If Kayla can walk into a chicken house with flipflops on then you can walk down this street with sneakers" (=

Love you always<3xox<3xox<3

same for all you amazing geisingers!

We went to Mass at 5:00 PM yesterday and I just kept thinking of you.  All the readings were about Resurrection--so hopeful.  All the same, my heart is aching with yours as you go through this time.  I really do feel it, too, because it makes me remember Patrick and how I felt back then. You see it never really does go away--it just hides out until something brings it up.  Someday I believe you will be able to share with another mom as I have with you.  And you'll look back and be amazed at what you have been through and how far you have come.  Read II Corinthians 1:3-5. 
3     aBlessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and bGod of all comfort,
     4     who acomforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in 1any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
     5     For just aas the sufferings of Christ are 1ours in abundance, so also our comfort is abundant through Christ.
Keep claiming this for yourself.

Prayer For A Parent Whose Child Has Died

Mysterious Lord of Life and Death,
a very part of OUR own life has died
in the death of MCKAYLA.
OUR souls are weighed down with sorrow
and bears the wound of a lifelong scar.
Send to US Your angel of consolation
for the pain is heavy and deep.

Come to OUR aid, Lord of Mercy,
for WE lack the power
of the holy parent, Abraham,
who was willing in obedience to Your
command, to sacrifice to You his beloved son,

Lord God, You who are also a parent
surely know OUR Pain at the loss
of OUR beloved MCKAYLA
who has been taken from OUR side by

Do not take OUR tears and sorrow
as a sign of OUR unbelief that all who
have died
are resurrected to eternal life in You,
but, rather, see in these tears
a sign of OUR great love for OUR MCKAYLA.

As WE held HER in the embrace of love FOR OVER 13 YEARS,
may You, MCKAYLA’S Divine Parent,
hold HER close to Your heart forever.

Help US, Lord,
for WE do not seek to understand the
why of this mystery of death
as much as WE desire to accept it in a
holy way
and to be healed and once again whole.
Support US, OUR Lord and God,
and wrap US in your gentle love
as WE attempt to carry this bitter cross
as Your Son, Jesus, carried the cross
which you gave to Him.

My Grief Is Like A River


My Grief Is Like A River-

I Have To Let Flow,

But I Myself Determine

Just Where The Banks Will Go.


Most Days The Current Takes Me

In Wave Of Grieve And Pain,

But There Are Always Quiet Pools

Where I Can Rest Again.


I Crash On Rocks Of Anger-

My Faith Seems Faith Indeed,

But There Are Other Swimmers

Who Know That What I Need.


Are Loving Hands To Hold Me

When The Waters Are Too Swift,

And Someone Kind To Listen

When I Just Seem To Drift.


Grief’s River Is a Process

Of Relinquishing The Past.

By Swimming In Hope’s Channels

I’ll Reach The Shore At Last!

The  Club

There is an exclusive club
One  which you would p
ay anything
not to be a member of.

One where its members all have a common bond.
A place where we can come,
and everyone knows how to respond.

A club that allows us
to not feel so all alone.
Each of us has a child
with their name carved in stone.

We are the Heavenly Angels group.
Our eyes weep,
our smiles droop,
our sorrow is deep,
and our hearts continually ache.

We all mourn the death of a child,
and are struggling to live again in its wake.
Some club members are very new.

The veterans show us  what to do.
We all help each other cope,
trying to provide a drop of hope.

We all pray to God that you
never have the need to join our fold,
that you will always have your children to hold,
but please know that we are here
with open arms and understanding hearts,
if you ever do.
