Dave and Renee,

No words can express how you feel now. Just want you to know how sorry I am in the loss of your beautiful daughter. Even though I did not know her from what my sons told me she was a beautiful young lady inside and out with a great heart for others. Treasure all the great memories you have of her and know she is now with her great-grandparents Dick and Gen watching over all of you. God Bless you

My Sweet girl Kaylee was the most beautiful person inside and out. I am honored and proud to be her Aunt. As I am heartbroken over my dear Kaylee, all the memories I have of her, and there are many, will last a lifetime. One memory in particular came to me when I used to sing to her when she was just a little girl. I would sing the words to her, "How wonderful life is when your in the world" and she would just giggle and smile. Life was wonderful with her in it and the world was a better place with the kindness and compassion Kaylee always gave to others! Kaylee was such a mature, responsible young adult! She was going places in life and was well on her way! My heart is breaking for my brother, his wife and my nephew who loved her more than words can begin to express!

Love Always and Forever,
Aunt Lisa & Uncle Dan

Sympathies from the Peer families of Ohio and Indiana, cousins of Kaylee. Especially thinking of Kaylee's parents and her grandmother Juanita. We were also friends of Great Aunt Theda and Great Uncle Carl. May God grant the comfort only He can provide.

I can not imagine the sorrow and loss you and your family are going through. The loss of your beautiful daughter is unimaginable. My prayers are with you and your family during this most difficult time. Again, my deepest sympathy to you and your family.

To the family and friends of Kaylee. Words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss. Nothing can prepare us for the pain that comes from losing a loved one. Please know that the “God of all comfort “(2 Corinthians 1:3,4) sees your pain and longs to do something about it. The Bible gives us a hope for the future at Revelation 21:3,4 and John 5:28,29. May your precious memories give you strength and comfort during this very difficult time.

My sincere condolences go to the family at this trying time. There is a Bible passage that comforts me greatly. Jesus promised he will resurrect our loved ones. John 5: 28 and 29. When earth becomes the place of peace Jesus talked about at Matthew 5:5, then we will live the promise of everlasting peace. Psalm 37:29. We have a promise from God at Revelation 21:3,4. There will be no more death and pain. There is more comfort to be read about in God's Word, the Bible concerning the resurrection and reuniting with our loved ones. May God’s peace be yours. Isaiah 26:4.
