Dearest family of Kyle Patrick; I was so very saddened to hear of the passing of your beloved son, Kyle. No greater heartache than the loss of a child. I have endured the loss of my beautiful daughter, Kelsey Leigh, at the age of 16, who was a classmate of Kyle's. Nothing can prepare us to lose a child. I can tell you, you are not alone on this journey. Reach out and embrace the love and support of family and friends. They can carry you on those days when you feel you can't go on. Our memories are a true "Gift". I pray they will bring you some comfort and peace in the days, weeks and months ahead. There is no book on how to do this, so do what is best for you. Be kind and gentle with yourselves and each other. Your heartache and loss is real and goes deep. I pray in time you can come to celebrate Kyle's life and the joy & love he brought to you. Please know you are and will remain in my thoughts and prayers. Our "Angel's" together. BELIEVE Ann & Dan - 10.03.2013
