The End of Kayla's Journey

Kayla Marie St.Cyr
August 7, 1990 - May 2, 2008
Kayla went to heaven this afternoon at 4:40. I held one of her hands and her dad held her other. She was surrounded by family and her dearest friends. Now she is at peace.
Thank you to all who travelled this journey with us.

I guess God decided He needed another angel at His side.

God speed, dear Kayla, and the peace of eternity now be yours.

Condolences to all of you.

Kayla taught so many what fighting a battle about with courage and dignity was all about---what never giving up never losing hope was. She was a true Hero an Inspiration.

In Memory of Kayla

In tears I saw you sinking,
I watched you fade away.
You suffered much in silence,
you fought so hard to stay.
You faced your task with courage.
Your spirit did not bend,
and still you kept on fighting until the very end.
God saw you getting tired.
When a cure was not to be.
So he put his arms around you and whispered "come to me".
So when I saw you sleeping So peaceful, free from pain.
I could not wish you back
to suffer that again.

My condolences to all of her family---each of you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Kathy said...

Peace be with you, oh my dear one…
peace be with you, precious child…
angels hover all about you,
they protect you, night and day…
angels over all about you,
they will guide you on your way…

Godspeed dear sweet Kayla.

I am so sorry.

I am holding all her family close in thought and prayer.

(damn)

My deepest condolences for you and your family and to Kayla's family. Words feel empty and I don't know how to express how very sorry I am.

How does one express the magnitude of sadness that the passing of a child brings? Even a child I've never met. I can only say that if the time we all spent folding cranes brought one smile to her beautiful face, there was never time better spent. My heart aches for her being deprived of all of life's experiences and it aches for her family who is left to live without her. I'm just so sorry, Susan. I am so happy that Kayla had her grad come to her. She deserved to wear daisies and a tiara and a beautiful dress. Her life has impacted mine, and I will never forget this beautiful stranger who has touched me so deeply. Rest in peace, sweet Kayla.

Sally said...

May you rest in peace, sweet angel Kayla.

My heart goes out to all of Kayla's family and friends. God bless.

Michael Manning said...

Dearest Susan: May the Peace of The Good Lord be with you and your family at this heartbreaking news I had just received from Walker. I send you all my deepest condolences from the precise center of my heart. Kayla's smile and optimism showed many how to live a fuller life.

Susan I have visited you before via Walker. I am very very sorry. May Kayla soar with the Angels.

Dick said...

I have followed Kayla's battle with cancer from when you first posted about it. She was a real fighter and leaves a powerful legacy in the blogging world. Like my Annie in 2005, there was just too much stacked against her for her body to win this battle. My prayers will be with you and all the family. She is where she no longer has any pain or problems getting around, a well deserved reward for a battle well fought.

Josie said...

Oh, Susan, I am so sorry. Please accept my deepest sympathy and condolences to you and your whole family.

I pray that Kayla is whole again and one of God's special angels.

She was too young!

Karen said...

I don't have a doubt that she was taken from this earth for an even greater journey and she won't be far from her family... just think of her and she'll be in your heart.

Sending prayers, love, and hugs to you all.

butterflies said...

Margot said...

Kayla was such an inspiration to me - my time with her drove me to pursue a career in medicine with all the passion I could find. My love and condolences go to you, and I will miss Kayla so much - I wish I would have had a chance to say goodbye, but I will never ever forget her. Her wings will let her soar forever.

God Bless Kayla. So brave, so bright, and so young. Wishing you and your family strength to deal with the next few days. I will be thinking of you and praying for you as ever. God Bless You all.

anemone27 said...

I have thought about Kayla so many times today. I can't begin to imagine how you feel, and how all her family are coping. It is so wrong for a parent to have to bury a child. I wish there was something I could 'do'. I have lit an online candle for her. I saw prom dresses in the shops today, and thought of Kayla and her graduation. The hospital, the school and the RCMP, and of course her family seem to have made her last days as happy as possible. I'm sorry to ramble on, but I've been thinking about Kayla so much today. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

we never knew eachother but i gotten used to seeing her around school. i was aware of her condition and i think she is one of the bravest people that i know.
i just wish i approached her when she was around so that i could've told her that. ..

im going to miss you kayla.
rest in peace.

Joan said...

My most sincere condolences to your and your family.

She certainly did not loose this battle for lack of trying. She gave it her all.

God bless.

I knew her since the beginning of elementary and always admired her strength and courage. I can only hope to live my love with as much strength and courage and devoted faith as she did. Rest in peace dear Kayla. You deserve it.
