Your friend's life HAS made a difference...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Kendra, I see something that you don't. You gave your friend the most precious gift of all: your friendship. She died knowing that you loved and cared about her. Her life was filled with abuse at the hands of psychotic brothers and an uncaring, criminally neglectful mother, yet she had you as her ray of sunshine. She didn't live long on this earth, Kendra, but the few brief years she had here were made so much more special because she had you in her life. Don't ever lose sight of that. The wooden cross and a rock that mark her grave aren't important; what's important is that you remember her in your heart, and that knowing her will make a difference in your life. In that way, her life (and death) has purpose, Kendra. She didn't die without purpose because her memory lives on in you. Thank you for sharing your friend's story with my visitors and me.

A willing enabler for a mother...and sadistic beaters for brothers...
by: Anonymous

Kendra, I'm so sorry for your loss. I really hope that your dear friend did not die in vain and that those sadistic monsters for brothers and mother get incarcerated for all those terrible crimes that they committed against her. I can relate; in fact, my brother abused me, too, and no one cared about me...just themselves. I hope that you try counselling and that you talk to your family about it because your friend deserves to be remembered forever and no one, let alone your friend, deserves to be mistreated in any way. May she R.I.P. Let's pray for her every night. Thanks for sharing this story with us because it truly breaks my heart just reading it.

by: maurice

Being any only child I regard my special friends as family Kendra. Oh please take to heart what Darlene has written to you in her comment. All from her heart to you genuine and sincere words I assure you. I would sy they are real and natural from her heart to yours. A womans heart after that nake a real sense of them to yoursefl Kendra. What a friend she had in me you can deffineately say for your own peace of mind. She trusted you with her whole self, physically, mentally and heart truthful. When it looked like she had no one else in the world to love and hug her and be there for her. I was, you were Kendra. Headstones only let us know who is in a particualr grave, You and I know that person is etched forever on our hearts as true human beings and our friend. She carried to her grave all the LOVE you showered on her while ye walked and talked together and hopefully when you hugged each other in total showing of your friends feelings for esch other. Oh Kendra, you are, were the best I or anyone could have as a friend. Hi she is your inner strength still to Always believe in yourself. She's an Angel from on high, know her spirit will never leave you. You soothed her wounds and bruises mental and physical her cruel brothers who abused her left on her. A friend in need is a friend indeed. That is what you wer to her Kendra. Hi, begin to acknowledge the wonderful and beautiful person you are. Love yourself. begin having a very special mirror image of yourself. I am the positive, nice adjetives I use to discribe myself. Let go of any negative thoughts you have about yoursefl or that beautiful body of yours. You were birthed beautiful. No one can take that away from any of us Kendra. I am saying it to YOU but you must Believe it. God created you so.

It sounds like you were a good friend.
You can keep her memory alive. If you believe in life after death you will see her again in heaven
