Condolences to Kyle's family  / Hilary McCaughey (Passer by )
Hi, I am a bereaved mother from The Choking Game support group on Yahoo. I was scrolling my emails tonight and saw Kyle's anniversary so clicked on his website. What a beautiful boy he was, and indeed still is in your hearts. I saw that my friend Denise, Austin's mum, was also moved to leave a tribute for your boy. She saw the similarities between Kyle and Austin. Two beautiful boys taken too soon. I shall light my candles tonight in Sydney to honour your boy. Hilary, Matt's mum. Australia. Close

What a beautiful thing your classmates did by planting a tree at Appleton East in your honor. I am sure that your family was touched by the honorary diploma they were given in your honor.  I bet you are in Heaven's Honor Society. God Bless you and your family Kyle. You are forever loved and missed by many. Close

What a Blessing Kyle was  / Mark H.

Our school is presenting some community awareness issues next week and I just came across Kyle's information via a Google search.    Your story and pictures were touching and the memorial is very inspirational.  Kyle must have been such a joy to have around.  I am sure he is with you every day watching and guiding your family.  Having him as an angel is one of God's graces that we may never fully understand but knowing he is still part of your family is a blessing.  I am sure God is proud of the preparation you have done as parents with Kyle...such a great looking kid!  Kyle's memory is still alive and I am glad I was able to learn about him via this memorial.  God Bless! -Mark

Happy 17th Birthday Kyle  / Mom

Hi Sweetheart-

So hard to believe that 17 years ago today that I gave birth to such a beautiful Angel.  As I looked thru you baby book seeing you on the day you were born, I thought-what a world did we bring such a sweet little baby into. I only wished I could have always protected you as when you were so small. Only God knows why you had to leave us so soon, but have complete trust that we will all see you again someday.

Also, looking at  each year of your birthday pictures, you were surrounded by so many people who's lives you touched, and  they touched your's. You "loved" people-always reaching them with your kind and gentle heart and gleaming that smile that spoke a million words from that shy boy who was also full of tons of fun energy.

I remember how you looked forward to your birthday months before they were here and how much fun you had on those days with the ones you loved. I remember your last birthday of how you wanted, before your family birthdy party, for us- Dad, Meg, Don and I just to do something together and that was go-carting. You were such a sweet boy with such a beautiful heart.

I wonder tonight what we might have done for your 17th birthday. You probably would have wanted to go to Country USA with maybe us and Meg and Don and had relatives over the next night to celebrate. I try to imagine just how you would look tonight. I can see you with the same dark thick hair, tall and thin, mature and handsome! and your smile has turned into this handsome smile that would melt the hearts of many girls.

I can only hope that in Heaven  you are enjoying all that is so deserving of an Angel so beautiful that was only here for such a short time to touch our lives. I wish you a big beautiful birthday cake in Heaven with 17 of the brightes candles along with all our loved ones there around you singing Happy Birthday and for you to feel all the thoughts of those down here that have thought of you today on your special day. I love you Kyle with all my heart and I feel so blessed to have been the mother of such an awesome soul that has lit the world. I can't wait to see you some day-to hold and to touch you again.  Until then sweetheart, watch over everyone down here and always feel our love as we feel yours.

Happy 17th Birtday Kyle!

Love you forever-

You and Braden are forever missed :(  / Diante Wayne ((Friend of Braden Erickson) )

Hey kyle,

       It seems to me that you and Braden have been gone forever now. Everybody misses you, Kyle. But I miss my buddy, Braden too. He was a good guy like you. He will always try to make me laugh. I wish I could hear that laugh. I've been emailing your sister, Meggie the other day. She email me back. I was glad to hear from her. She misses you terribly. She wants you to know that she loves you. As long as you and Braden stay in heaven, I'm sure I will meet you. We love you and Braden very much. We'll keep dreaming of you tonight.

     My name is Diante.  I saw your son's photo album. It is so   beautiful. What a happy boy you have there! It's hard to lose a child. When I saw kyle's pictures, he has a beautiful smile on his face. He's so cute and handsome!! You were right. His smile will melt your heart. Well, I'm one of Braden's friends in Arizona. He passed away on May 20, 2005 playing a choking game. I miss him and I love him. He was sweet, funny, and amazing person that I ever known. I knew him two years before he died. His life and his memories had touched everyone. I've been thinking about him day and night. I just want to see him again. I  hope I can see your son too. Keep Kyle close to your hearts, he will always be around watching all of you. I think your son is cool person and a great kid. I will remember your son as my friend. Braden and Kyle will be on my side. I'm sorry for your loss. These boys won't be forgotten. We'll see them in paradise. I can't wait to meet Kyle. I hope you feel better.

Kyle, life sure hasnt been easier with you gone...but everybody has been doing there best to go on the best they can without you.  but everyone has also been trying as hard as possible not to forget you or let anyone else forget about Kyle Kelly McCarthy.  I have done everything in my power to not let myself or anyone else forget about u or ur life...every sporting event i competed in u were with me, at the banta bowl football game for madison i had ur picture glued to my shoulder pads right over my heart, me and ty also said a prayer for u and ur family before the start of the game because it was on the 1 year anniversery of ur death.
i love and miss u bro

Letter from Heaven  / To Kyle Family   Read >>
Letter from Heaven  / To Kyle Family
'Letter From Heaven'

I am writing this from heaven,
here I dwell with God above.
Here there are no tears or sadness,
here it's just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy
because I am out of sight.
Remember that I am with you
every morning, noon, and night.

That day I had to leave you,
when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me,
and said, 'I welcome you.

'It's good to have you back again.
You were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family,
they'll be here later on.

God gave me a list of things
that He wished me to do,
and foremost on that list
was to watch and take care of you.

I will be beside you every day,
and week and year.
And when you're sad, I am standing there
to wipe away the tears.

When you lie in bed at night,
the day's chores put to flight,
God and I are closest to you
in the middle of the night.

Do not be afraid to cry,
for it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers,
unless there was some rain.

One thing is for certain,
though my life on earth is o'er,
I am closer to you now
than ever before.

When you're walking down the street
and you've got me on your mind,
I'm walking in your footsteps
only a half step behind.

When you feel that gentle breeze
upon your face,
that's me giving you a great big hug
or just a soft embrace.

When it's time for you to go
from that body to be free,
remember you're not going,
you're coming here to me.

And I will always love you
from that land way up above.

We'll be in touch again soon.

PS God sends his love

"The Busiest Day In Heaven"

It's the busiest day in Heaven
I'm planning a big surprise
To let you know I love you
And that no one ever dies

Even though your down below
And I am up above
I'm sending you my wishes
And all my angel love

It's really quite exciting
To plan this big event
For lots of gifts will come your way
And all are Heaven sent

First I'll take a bubble bath-
My splashes might cause some rain
But knowing all the fun I'm having
Will help to ease your pain

Next I'll get some pictures
In my halo and gown
So when you get to Heaven
You can show me all around

I have color crayons in Heaven
And I will draw some stars so bright
And place them in the sky today
For you to see tonight

Then Jesus will have story time
And I will sit upon his lap
He'll tell me all about you
Just before I nap

I'll awake full of energy
And play a game or two
Before I finish sending
All my love to you

After snack I'll write a song
For all the birds to sing
And know I've made you happy
With all the joy it brings

At night time I'll be tired
But I'll still hold you tight
My arms will wrap around you
And keep you through the night

And when you finally slumber
I will kneel and pray
Asking God to bless you
On this special Mothers Day

Your Little Angel
