Missing Kylie

Posted on

To my longtime online friend, I find it hard to find the words. Suddenly books become irrelevant to me. You and your wonderful family group have not only gathered around your beautiful Kylie, and kept her close and nurtured with all your hearts, but you’ve taken on the challenge of stopping childhood cancer – and loving Kylie’s kitty forever. I will support every thing that you do in memory of Kylie. I can’t imagine what you’re going through, because just as a follower of Smiley for Kylie, and having listened to your words of hope over the past months – I’ve cried and smiled for Kylie. I know your baby is in heaven now, but I mourn with you, every one of you wonderful Myers family, for your loss. I know that Kylie wanted a bit of humour posted in her memory – and I know you’ll all make an effort to do that. Please click on the links in Mark’s post. Twelve is just too young. We love you Kylie. From South Africa – Hamba Kahle small one – go with God.

A Generous Helping

I have been absent from posting for a few weeks. The reason is that Kylie took a sudden turn for the worse and left her battered body on February 13th. I miss her every day.


There are so many questions and very few answers. My lovely wife and I had to plan out her funeral, which was truly heartbreaking. During the discussion, I felt compelled to speak at the memorial because I knew that Kylie would never want anyone to waiver in their faith because of her passing. So I did. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done, but I made it through.

I would like to share the video with you. If you would rather read the text, it is at the bottom of the blog’s Kylie page.

There is no formula to recovering from this type of thing, but I think we are doing…

    How unbearably sad.. when we pass on at our age at least we have had a chance to lead our lives in whatever fashion we have chosen.. but so young… what a brave little girl and her family.

    I never had the opportunity to meet Kylie or her parents or sisters, but I attend Sunday school with Mark’s parents and have been beside them as they’ve gone through the trauma of loving a very ill child. And then today I come across a blog from South Africa that expresses shared grief and thankfulness for Kylie’s impact upon the world. What an amazing blessing it is to watch God’s power unfold and reach across the world, from the bravery, determination, and tremendous faith of one small girl.
