    I grew up across the road from Kyle, right next to central high school. I’ll always remember walking a few houses down to get to school and Kyle always pulling next to me to ask if I wanted to ride (he knew I was shy and it embarrassed me that my mom made me walk and couldn’t ride in cars) but Kyle was there I’m pretty sure my mom knew πŸ™‚ one time his pool wall caved and the pool drained and flooded the whole road. Most of my end of high school memories include Kyle. Always outgoing and the first one to hug you when u see him. My heart goes out to his mother and entire family. πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—

    Sandra, my heart aches for you. I didn’t know Kyle personally, only through the wonderful things you told me about him. But, I do know, he had a wonderful mother for his years here on earth. I know there are no words to help you heal during this time, but please know Drew and I are here for you and are praying for you. Sending lots of love your way.

    Sandra and Uncle Don,
    My heart breaks for both of you! I know there are no words that anyone can offer. I will always remember Kyle coming with my Aunt Adele to visit and him hanging out with Uncle Georgie at the β€œRanch”! Kyle as well as both of you will always be in our hearts! We love you!

    Auntie Lolly, Laura and Isabella Christian πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™
