My thoughts are will all who mourns for McKayla W. Geisinger. I have pitty when I ask something of the of the on lookers of this memorial. But I feel that I must. One of my very close freidns, Amary Cocran, she has been very ill for the past year. She needs to take many medication and the doctors can't do any test when the medication are in her system. She has currently stopped taking her medication and is going for many tests coming up soon. I ask that you pray for her health. I am not going on to all of these memorials asking for people's prays. I knew KK every well myself. I knew her because i am going into the eigth grade at AMS. Amary is my aunt and i hope someone will help me, help her, by one simple prayer.

Thank you, Amherst Student

I belong to Catholic Answers Forum and I just received this from of of the Members:

Hi, I wanted to tell you thank you for sharing McKayla's story. You've been on my mind and in my prayers for several weeks.

I especially want to thank you because you inspired me to take my son to the doctor. He has complained of chest pain off and on for about a year. Well, he's 8 and kind of a baby so I have been blowing him off. But after his baseball game on Monday he was complaining again and McKayla was on my mind so I decided to take him in.

Yesterday, an echocardiogram found that he has a bicuspid(instead of a normal tricuspid) aorta valve with a mild leak. With this knowlege we'll be able to take the preventitve measures that he'll need to stay healthy. And he'll still be able to fulfill his dream of becoming a priest.

Words can't express how grateful I am to you (and perhaps McKayla herself) for nudging me to finally get him checked out.

God bless you! You and your family will always, ALWAYS be in my prayers!

McKayla might not have been saved ... but through this horrific nightmare, she saved at least one child ... Thank You God!!!!!

Hey KK,

Today, I'm going to Paiges Birthday party. I wish you could come too... I'm sure it'll be a BLAST! My All-Star team is doing great, and my tournament it tommorrow in Salem. This year, I've been playing first base, but I'm not starting in the game anymore because someone else is... :-(

The fourth was fun at your house! But it started to rain and we didn't get to finish the fireworks, but we finished all of the ones my Daddy bought! (He He) Me, Anli, Kaelee, and Brenna stayed on the trampoline and watched the fireworks at Amanda's graduation party, but it just wasn't the same without you.

Amanda taught me how to flip (well, sort of...) and I practiced (and also almost fell of... he he)

My parents and yours went to a concert together a couple of weeks ago, and my parents loved it. Your parent invited us to go to 4 o'clock mass then Georgio's and then to the movies, but we had already made plan's with my Aunt. It was my cousin's last night of working at the pasta loft, so we went there after going on a million year long shopping trip :-)

Well, I'll fill in about Paiges party after! Bye! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH! :-)

Love, LL To, KK

Remembering Elizabeth Dent

Go ahead and mention my child, the one who died, you know.

Don’t worry about hurting me further; the depth of my pain doesn’t show.

Don’t worry about making me cry, for I am already crying inside.

Help me to heal by releasing the tears that I try to hide.

I’m hurt when you just keep silent, pretending she didn’t exist.

I’d rather you mention my child, knowing that she is missed.

You asked how I was doing, and I responded with “pretty good” or “fine.”

But healing is something ongoing. I feel it will take a lifetime.

Dear Mckayla,

I have only met you once in my life, but i still remember you from VBS at MVBC! I can't wait to see you again someday.

Family, I will always be praying for you, and thinking about you and Mckayla!

Dear Family and Friends:

I just had to share with you all … the amazing thing that, again, will keep McKayla’s memory alive.

I got a call from the President of St. John Neumann’s CYO, Rich Eaton, (we belonged to the parish for many years up until 2000-2005). He asked to visit with us to go over an idea that the CYO wanted to do to memorialize McKayla.

St. John Neumann’s CYO wants to have a plaque in the Gathering Area with a Picture of McKayla in her Mite Cheerleading Uniform … and every year an award will be presented to the Mite Cheer Leader … who represents the qualities (Christian/Athletic) characteristics that McKayla possessed during her cheering and their name will be listed under the McKayla Geisinger Spirit Award for many years to come. Plus the winning Mite will get a plaque to take home. They have asked us to present the award each year to the winning recipient. There is only one other parishioner that has that honor, and we are just beside ourselves that we will be able to share this award with them.

Rich will let us know when the awards will be presented, and Greg will present it to the winning Mite Cheer Leader sometime in the Spring. Once her Picture/Plaque is up (fall time-frame) … the Pastor, Fr. Aggie, of SJN will have a blessing during one of the Masses … I will keep you updated on when that will be, just incase you want to come and be a part of this wonderful memorial. As you can imagine, Greg, I and Amanda are blown away by this unbelievable offer, especially since we no longer attend the parish. But both Amanda and McKayla left their mark at SJN the few years they were there, and we feel blessed that they want to honor McKayla with such an awesome memorial.

This past April at the CYO Banquet … one of the cheerleaders who cheered with McKayla … wrote the following …

McKayla Geisinger, this name may not mean a lot to some of you, but it means a lot to others. McKayla was an athlete. She was a spirited girl who was part of a wonderfully family. Though McKayla is not with us anymore, she will live in our hearts forever. Some people knew her from school, some knew her from sports, and they even knew her from church.

McKayla and her family used to come to St. John Neumann’s and McKayla was part of the Children’s Chorus. McKayla was also a cheerleader on the Mite Team. The Mite Team that year came in 1st at the State Competition. Her coaches and teammates will never forget her, wherever they are.

After that cheerleading season was over, McKayla’s family had decided to switch to a closer church. Since they live in Mont Vernon, they switched to St. Patrick’s. Even though the Geisinger’s do not go to this church anymore, McKayla will stay in our heats and memories forever.

I would now like to offer a moment of silence in McKayla’s honor and memory!

Once again, God is shining through this veil of darkness …. I reflect on this scripture everyday:

“I consider that the sufferings of this present time are as nothing compared with the glory to be revealed to us (Romans 8:18). Subtract one from any number and there is always less … everyone who knew McKayla … feels her loss. Please continually keep us in your prayers!

What a beautiful memorial for a beautiful girl!

07-08-2007 3:07 PM -- By: Terrie Hamlin,  From: Merrimack, NH  

I just found this memorial site and read all the postings, tears rolling down my face through most of it. I felt compelled to share my feelings with the brief time I spent with the Geisingers.

I had the privlege of meeting McKayla and her mother through the cheerleading program at St. John Neumann, which my 3 daughters participated in a few years ago. I remember being in awe of the faith the Geisinger family had then and obviously continues to hold strongly.

McKayla was a beautiful young girl and grew into a beautiful young lady through the outpouring of love from her family.

My 15 year ol daughter, Heather, and I attended McKayla's funeral (my eldest daughter was away at college, and my youngest was too young to understand). I was overwhelmed and amazed at the strength of your faith in a time most people would doubt it. Thank you for sharing your love and faith for all to see.

God bless you Maureen, Greg, and Amanda and may He continue to help you through each day as you mourn the loss of your beautiful angel, McKayla. You are in my prayers.

There is no doubt in my mind that McKayla is with you now and forever.

Don't tell me that you understand Don't tell me that you know. Don't tell me that I will survive, How I will surely grow.

Don't tell me this is just a test, That I am truly blessed, That I am chosen for this task, Apart from all the rest.

Don't come at me with answers That can only come from me, Don't tell me how my grief will pass That I will soon be free.

Don't stand in pious judgment Of the bounds I must untie, Don't tell me how to suffer, And don't tell me how to cry.

My life is filled with selfishness, My pain is all I see, But I need you, I need your love, Unconditionally.

Accept me in my ups and sowens, I need someone to share, Just hold my hand and let me cry, And say, "My friend, I care." Joanetta Hendel

I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep. I could see that you were crying, you found it hard to sleep. I kissed you so softly as you brushed away a tear, "It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."

I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea, you were thinking of the many times your hands reached around me.

I was with you at the shops today, your arms were getting sore. I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.

I was with you at my grave today, you tend it with such care. I want to reassure you, that I'm not lying there.

I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key. I gently put my hands on you, I smiled and said "it's me."

You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair. I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there. It's possible for me to be so near you every day. To say to you with certainty, "I never went away." You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew ... in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.

The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning and say "goodnight, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."

And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide, I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.

I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see. Be patient, live your journey out ... then come home to be with me.
