Your in our Hearts Forever. / Kortney Nyman (Friend and Classmate )
You were a great guy and a wonderful classmate. When I would go to school you would be the person that I could always find a smile on. No one will ever forget that heart warming smile of yours. Even thinking about your smile puts a smile on my face, we really need more people like you in this world. Your an amazing person and deeply missed by every one. I miss and love you, you will be in my heart forever. Close

Extending my deepest condolences to your family and truly sharing your grief. / Aaron Bennett (Friend)
I found your memorial on a website called "Stop the Choking Game!" I just found out that my 10 yr old nephew is in the hospital as a result of the "Choking Game." He is on life-support and my mother tells me that his chances of surviving this are very slim. I'm currently in the Navy, stationed overseas and very upset that I cannot be home. I didn't know that this game was so spread out and taking children's lives all across the world. I'm so upset that my hands are shaking uncontrolably typing this email. My family and I are praying for a miracle and I know that my nephew's fate is in God's hands; but he is so young and he doesn't deserve this. He is a really good kid and I really miss him and I love him so much. This hurts so bad. I cannot stop crying. I share in your grief and am very sorry that Kyle was taken so young. If I can do anything to help spread the word of the dangers in this game to children, I WILL. Thank you for the chance to vent and pay my respects. May God be with you and your family. Very Respectfully, Aaron C. Bennett, AT3 USN Close

My Sincere Condolences to Your Family / Brian Sharp (Stranger unacquainted with Kyle )
I found Kyle's story online and just wanted to express to you my sincere condolences; such a tragedy should never befall one so young. I have several little half-brothers who are still children, and I can't imagine losing one of them to something like your son experienced. I will keep your family in my prayers. God bless. Close

Kyle~ You were always the nices person i have ever known. You always thought of others before yourself and i miss you more than anyone could ever guess. It is hard for me not seeing you in the halls with your cheery face and great attitude. Religion was awesome all of those years. Its hard for me to even go now with you not being there! Just always remeber that god loves you so much... and so do all your friends and family! Gosh i really miss you. I can't stop saying that!

kyle you are really missed. we all loved you, and its really hard not seeing you anymore. me and you wern`t really the best of friends but i remember i met you one summer ago. you will always be in my memory. <3 Close
Kyle, My name is Ian Bertschausen and you didn't actually know me, but nearly all of my best friends did. So, even though i didn't know you personally, i think you would be my best friend, had this not happened. I know just how many people have been affected by this tradgedy. My bestest friend in the whole wide world is Connor Peterson. I was the one who informed him of your death. He did a double take, and got this look on his face that only something really, absolutely horrible could create. Later, we told his mom, who started crying on the spot. I just want you to know how much you're missed down here and hope you're having a good time up there. Now, i will type the words of a short picture book that helps people deal with grief.
THE NEXT PLACE By Warren Hanson The next place that I go, will be as peaceful and familiar, as a sleepy Sunday, and a sweet, untroubled mind.And yet....it won't be any like anyplace i've ever been...or seen....or even dreamed of in the place i leave behind. I won't know where i'm going, and i won't know where i've been as i tumble through the always and look back toward the when.I'll glide beyond the rainbows. I'll drift into the sky. I'll fly into the wonder, without ever wondering why. I won't remember getting there. Somehow i'll just arrive. But i know that i belong there and will feel much more alive, than i have ever felt before. I will be absolutely free of things that i held onto, that were holding on to me. The next place that i go will be so quiet and still, that the whispered song of sweet belonging will rise up to fill the listening skywith joyful silence, and with unheard harmoniesof music made by noone playing, like a hush upon a breeze. There will be no room for darkness in that place of living light, where an ever-dawning morning pushes back the dying night. The very air will fill with brilliance, as the brightly shinig sun, and the moon and half a million stars are married into one. The next place that i go won't really be a place at all.There won't be any seasons-winter, summer, spring, or fall. Nor a Monday, nor a Friday, nor a December, nor a July. And the seconds will be standing still...while hours hurry by. I will not be a boy, or girl, or woman, or man. I'll simply be, just, simply, me. No worse or better than. My skin will not be dark or light. I won't be fat or tall. The body where i lived once, won't be part of me at all. I will finally be perfect. I will be without a flaw. I will never make one more mistake, or break the smallest law. And the me that was impatient, or was angry, or unkind, will simply be a memory. That me i left behind. i will travel empty-handed.There is not a single thing i have collected in my life that i would ever want to bring exept...the love of those who loved me, the warmth of those who cared. The happiness and memories and magic that we shared. Though i will know the joy of solitude...i'll never be alone. I'll be embraced by all the family and friends I've never known. Although i might not see their faces, all our hearts will beat as one, and the big circle of our spirits will shine brighter than the sun. I will cherish all the friendship i was fortunate to find, all the love and laughter in the place i leave behind. All these good things will go with me. They will make my spirit glow. And that light will shine forever in the next place that i go.
I miss you / Sean Spencer (Friend)
Kyle,I miss you so much and dislike the fact that your not here right now because you were really fun to hang around and think that my days would be brighter if you were here today and I hope your in a better place right now having fun up there. Hope you had a good christmas up there in heaven. I really miss you and think of you all the time and wonder why you were taken so soon from us because I think people should live a long life and live it to the fullest you can. I really miss you and if I had a chance to see you I would take it. It was alwyas fun to hang around you and your smile would always be so friendly it you be hard not to be happy.
Dear Kyle, We wonder why you had to go so soon and we all miss you. we know that you are in a better place now, but we still do not like the fact that you left us so soon. Your benifit for the choking game foundation was a huge success . I hope your Christmas was good up in heaven. Down here on earth I had a good Christmas with my family. I miss you so much and think about you all the time wherever I am. Your smile was always enough to cheer anyone up and I always liked it when you would come over to Ross's house and we would hang out and play around.
We Miss You Kyle / Maria Peeples (Friend)
We miss you Kyle, I loved talking to you in class. You were a great kid and will always be loved. Below is a poem I wrote for you. Keep on smiling!
I'm missing you tonight, It has been nearly 3 months since you passed away. It's a feeling I cannot fight, Your memories are forever going to stay.
Tears come as I remember the day we were told, People reacted in so many ways. We all grew up that day, we were forced to try and act old, But it was all so surreal, stuff like this only happens in movies or plays.
Now we are trying to cope and move on with our lives, But with you gone it is so hard. Everyday we face numerous strives, And you aren't there to be our guard.
I wish I had gotten to know you more, Before you had to go. But as I lay here, crying on the floor, I know that you are keeping an eye on us below. Close

i want to wish the best of wishes to the family of kyle and i hope your hanging in there....I havent met your son before, but he seems like one of the coolest and cutest little boys ever....I know his cousin, and i have seen how much it has impacted her and it was hard watching without not knowing what was the right thing to say or how to act......In memory of kyle, i wear his number on my basketball shoes....If i would play for anyone, i would play for him, because i know how many people love him and its something that i wanna do in his memory.....Best of wishes
