To all of you MAHALO.
It means so much to read your support, and know that it helps feel less alone.

I thought you may want to read the obit that was in our paper today.

Again thank you all,
Kelly

And again to Hanford thank you for allowing me to share my grief and let those offer comfort to me and my family.

Kelley , please let us know when the memorial fund is set up.
I am sure many TC'ers and FOMmers would like to make a donation in memory of Izabella.
Hang in there, kahuna.

Kelly;

My thoughts and best wishes of support go to you and your family. I was saddened to receive the news of Izabella, especially so early in the year.

Oddly enough, I was in Wisconsin Rapids visiting family this week, and I actually was thinking about you this past Tuesday afternoon - mainly because I was buying hard-to-find rums at the only decent liquor store in town - a place named Kelly's Liquor.

It does seem sad, when there seems so little that we can do. It may not be much, but I can offer to raise a silent toast, with whatever special thoughts a Wisconsin/tiki connection may provide, in the memory of Izabella.

Vern

My wife and I are sitting here reading this and nearly in tears. Our hope is that you and your family find some comfort in this outpouring of support and prayers from those on TC. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Kelly, I'm so sorry for your loss. Nothing-but-nothing gets to my crusty old heart like a sweet little girl!! I regret terribly that I never had the privilege of meeting your dear Izabella. I know that grief can be very isolating, somehow. So I'm glad you chose to post and open yourself up to all the sympathy and support here. May it embrace you, and your wife and surviving children as well. My heartfelt sympathy to you, friend, and take care,
tikivixen

Aloha and Mahalo to all of you for your words and thoughts. The funeral was last night and we feel completely drained. The burial is on Monday yet.

We finally got the final word from the pathologist that the test they did was positive for R.S.V. Which is a respitory virus. This is the cause of her death, and us being with out her in our lives. It comes down to her having a really bad cold. As a parent who lost their child to this I encourage all parents to make yourseleves aware of R.S.V. If you take your child in for a cold you have to request to have your kids be tested for it. As it was for my Bella it is deadly and it can take your child very quickly.

Again to all of you, MAHALO.

Kelly

My wife Angela has set up a memorial fund, if this is something you wish to be a part of, I know my Angie would be greatly apprecitive.

Kelly,
There are no words I can give to ease your pain, for I would gladly give them. I am so sorry that I didn't hear of this sooner, but please know that this news has left me with a sad, sad heart. As a father of three girls, I know the special place Izabella had in your big heart. I wish I could help shoulder some of the pain for ya, big guy. Be strong for your family my friend. I wish you nothing but positive energy during this difficult time. May peace come to you soon.

BD
