Denny Tuesday, 11/1/05, 9:08 AM
Kelly, I just thought I would write and share some thoughts with you about last weekend. I ran the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington on Sunday. You were my insperation that allowed me to finish. I pulled a Hamstring on mile 8. I finished the race saying to myself, I hope every step I take in pain is a step closer to your recovery and you being pain free. I kept looking at my Kelly's Hope band and kept thinking of you and praying for you. You helped me finish! Take Care and be strong. God Bless You, Denny Redner

Bobbie Manning Tuesday, 11/1/05, 8:16 AM
Hi Kelly: I went to your mass at St Pat's on Monday along with Mrs. Morello and Eileen. They send you their love and prayers as well as I do. I pray for you every day and know that you will have the courage and the strength to get thru this and have a healthy body again. Just to let you know Mrs. Morello's favorite player is Derek Jeter too, she even has a large photo of him by her chair in the living room.

linda rossini Tuesday, 11/1/05, 6:46 AM
Hi Kelly, Aunt Barbara will be coming to see you today. There is a present from the Rossini family. I hope that it puts a smile on your face. Halloween was fun last night. The kids had a good time. Christopher was pounced on by a neighborhood puppy. Thank God for Aunt Barbara she saved him from the attack. Way to go... Quote of the day: When we ask our angels to pray for us, we can be sure we have friends in the highest places. -Eileen Elias Freeman Angels are.... the bridge between heaven and earth. _ Megan McKenna Thinking and praying for you....The Rossini Family

kathy Tronovitch Tuesday, 11/1/05, 5:58 AM
Hi Kelly! Like so many others, we attended your Mass last week and it was to beautiful for words. You could feel the love for you and your family all around.As everyone tells you in each post, it is unbelievable the support and love that are pouring out for you. It amazes me how the community has pulled together. We are all hoping and praying for your recovery. Debbie, as parents we can hardly know what you are going through but your strength and determination are to be admired. Although our prayers are sent for Kelly's recovery, I am also sending prayers for you and Mike to remain strong.You are an inspiration to all parents. We will continue with our thoughts and prayers for the entire family. Kathy

Teresa Kinnari Monday, 10/31/05, 11:09 AM
Hi Kelly! I really enjoyed my visit with you and your parents on Saturday. I'm glad I was able to come up to the hospital for a visit. It was nice talking about old times and catching up with your Mom, it has been a few years since I have seen her. I didn't get a chance to say good-by to you because you looked so peaceful sleeping there I just couldn't disturb you, but I wanted to let you know that my family and I are praying for you and you and your family are always in our thoughts. I hope your treatments this week go well so you can get back home, I know that just being home will be the best medicine for you. Alisa can't wait for you to get home so she can bring her girls down for a visit. Love, Teresa K.

Under Pressure Sunday, 10/30/05, 3:08 PM
Pressure! Pushing down on me Pressing down on you no man ask for Under pressure That burns a building down Splits a family in two Puts people on streets Bah bah dah bah bah dah (Yeah) (Yeah) That's okay! It's the terror of knowing What this world is about Watching some good friends Scream "Let me out!" Pray tomorrow takes me higher Pressure on people People on streets Bah bah dah bah bah dah Okay! Chippin' around Kick my brains round the floor These are the days It never rains but it pours Bah bah dah bah bah dah People on streets bah dah dee da day People on streets bah dah dee dah dee dah dee dah dee dah It's the terror of knowing What this world is about Watching some good friends Scream "Let me out!" Pray tomorrow takes me higher (higher) Yeah! Turned away from it all Like a blind man Sat on a fence but it don't work Keep coming up with love But it's so slashed and torn Why? Why? Why? Love(love)! Love(love)! Love(love)! Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking Can't we give ourselves one more chance? Why can't we give love that one more chance? Why can't we give love give love give love? Give love give love give love give love give love? Cause love's such an old fashioned word And love dares you to care For the people on the edge of the night And love dares you to change our ways Of caring about ourselves This is our last dance This is our last dance This is ourselves under pressure Under pressure Under pressure -Sung by The Used and My Chemical Romance. This song goes out to you, Kelly O'Day. From Bert and Gerard from My Chemical Romance and The Used. Please dont doubt down on yourself, your whole name screams out "H-O-P-E"

Andy Hedlund Sunday, 10/30/05, 2:21 PM
Hey Kelly, its Andy. I just wanted to say hi. I don't know if you heard but Chris scored his first goal in the NHL! I thought you'd be pretty excited to hear that. I tried to call him but they play agian tonight so I'll call him again tommorow. I'll make sure to stop by the website and tell you how he's doing. I finished my book about Lance Armstrong. He talked alot about being an athlete and how much it helped him beat cancer. He said an athlete knows about pushing yourself even when you're in pain. I know you're strong. Talk to you soon. Andy

AC Sunday, 10/30/05, 12:57 PM
Kel, here's the scoop - remember I mentioned that I was hopeful of landing a job after my last interview on Tuesday? Well I was offered the job over the phone Friday afternoon!!!! I'll be getting more information about it this week and I expect to begin on 11/14. I'm really excited about the possibilities this job has to offer and I would have to guess that this group is safe from any future outsourcing. I really want to thank you for your genuine concern throughout my ordeal all while you were gong through the toughest test anyone should ever (never) be asked to. Stay positive - mental toughness will get you through this. You're in my thoughts always.....

nana Sunday, 10/30/05, 11:57 AM

Amanda Brown Saturday, 10/29/05, 11:43 PM
Hi Kelly, You don't know me but I would like to say hello to you. My name is Amanda, or Mandy to my my family and close friends. It seems we have been going through some similar things. I am currently stage 4 Melanoma. I just celebrated my 31st Birthday and it's been a year since my diagnosis. I am keeping strong in all of this and you seem to be a strong girl too. You keep being that girl and you will get through this. God will see us both through. I've been through the chemo, lost my hair and so much more. I can identify with a lot of the things you are facing and have faced so far. If you ever feel like chatting via computer, feel free to contact me. I wish you all of God's love and speed in your healing, Amanda P.S. This is my website, you can read a little more about me if you'd like.

Michelle Codner Saturday, 10/29/05, 7:23 PM
Kelly, I have been thinking about you often since I took care of you late last July. Thank you and your family for giving me a way to see how you are progressing. I trust that God is with you and your family as you are continually challenged with your illness. I send my prayers and best wishes with each step you take on this hard journey. Love, Michelle

Alice Woodruff Saturday, 10/29/05, 6:55 PM

Kenzie Friday, 10/28/05, 7:59 PM
Kelly Jeanne, I can't wait to see you this weekend! In Home Ec Class right now, we're doing our baby projects. (styrofoam cup ones), and I have decided to name my baby Kelly. While looking for my own name in the meanings of names book, I looked up your name and Keely (<totally appropriate!) and Kelly means, "Warrior Woman", which is a sign that you are one tough chick. and Keely, means "beautiful" which is one of the words that describes you perfectly. I Love Your more than words and I am running my last XC meet of the season for you tomorrow. While searching through some pictures I found one of you holding me like a baby before your 7th grade semi. I look at it every night and smile because it makes me think of you. I'm wicked excited to wear those sweet gloves and mask on Sunday! See You Then! <3always,Kenzie (a.k.a. your favorite neighbor ever! :D)

Colleen Jones Friday, 10/28/05, 7:03 PM
Kelly, our beautiful girl, We are all so damn proud of you for staying the course and continuing to endure and continue in this extremely long and exhausting journey to get well. And you will get well, I truely believe this. I figure that He must have given this test to you because He knew that you can handle this and to let all of us know that we should appreciate everyday he gives us. I am so sorry that you, Kelly has to be the one to show us this but I think everyone that hears your story now realizes this and that He can now know how many lives you have affected and You have done your work through him and He will heal you. Job well done sweet angel and go live a long and healthy, happy life as you so deserve!!!! Always in my heart and constantly in my prayers.

Lynette Friday, 10/28/05, 6:50 PM

To know that so many people love you and your family must be as overwhelming as the battle that you and your family are faced with.Your courage and unending strength should be a inspiration to everyone. We hope that you are feeling better soon! All our Prayers Bridget,Dave, Meg, and Corry Owen

Hi Kelly Another angelic intervention today. It is truely amazing how you don't have to look very far to find proof of an angel. Today I woke up an you bracelet was on my kitchen counter. Christopher had been playing with them weeks ago and I could not find them. I kept wondering what happened to them???? Quote of the day.... Angels are.. the bridge between heaven and earth. -Megan McKenna When we ask our angels to pray for us, we can be sure we have friends in the highest places. - Eileen Elias Freedman Thinking of you, The Rossini Family P.S. Sunday we are having a holloween party and your cousins are coming over.We will be bobbing for apples, making masks, and baking cookies.I will let you know how we make out.

How are you doing kelly? since no one on this site has heard anything for a few weeks?

Melissa Stephens Thursday, 10/27/05, 6:56 PM
Hi Kel- Nick and I went to the healing mass it was really packed, you have tremendous support! It was a beautiful mass. Earlier in the week was the JV soccer championship game - it was freezing and raining and a great game. I tried to pay attention and can report Melissa B had a zillion tremendous saves! The last JV football game is Saturday in Norwich. We miss you and are praying for you. Love Melissa and crew xxoo

Chris and Bill Thursday, 10/27/05, 12:21 PM
Well Hi Kelly, How are things today. We spoke to your Nana yesterday b/c you and Mom were busy. IShe said you were having a better day. Hope today is more of the same. we love you and your Mom too. Hugs to all.

AC Thursday, 10/27/05, 11:41 AM
Yo Kel, just a quick note. Ran into Col and dad at McGuirk's last night. Seems it was Col's night to cook and ... well ... going to McGuirk's won out. EJ had his team's year end banquet there. You have not missed anything back home, unless you call an October wet snow storm/no electric 'something to miss'. Heartbreaking loss for the JV girls soccer team but they had a very successful year. Boys and girls varsity in the play-off crunch now. And I'm sure you're aware of how the football team has been doing - hopeful for another 'dome year'. I hope you're able to stick with the present schedule which has you back home soon. I'm pretty excited about a recent interview as well - I'll keep you posted. We're all thinking of you - stay strong.

susie frank Thursday, 10/27/05, 10:27 AM
hi kelly hope your having better days, your healing mass was wonderful what a beautiful church and sooo many people were there for you .you are loved sooo much and the prayers also stay strong and keep the strength up you are one very special girl and an imspiration to all hang in there girlfriend and say hi to mom love you lots xxoo bill and matt too

Linda Rossini Thursday, 10/27/05, 9:41 AM
Hi Kelly, This is my 3rd attempt to e-mail you this week. Monday morning I was up at 4:30 am (Thank you Alyssa)and started to look through my meditation book. I couldn't find a quote that I liked. So I thought to myself, where is my angel book??? By that time Alyssa needed to be changed. While changing her, Christopher came into the room and started reading. He said"Mom can you get me that book?" I said ,OK and infront of the book that he wanted, was the book that I was looking for"May You Always Have an Angel by Your Side". :) This is my prayer for you... May you always have an angel by your side Watching out for you in all the things you do Reminding you to keep believing in brighter days Finding ways for your wishes and dreams to come true Giving you hope that is as certain as the sun Giving you the strength of serenity as your guide May you always have love and comfort and courage... Angel Blessings Behold I am going to send an angel before you to guard you along the way. -Exodus 23:20 May your days all be blessed with the presence of an angel watching over you -Douglas Pagels God Bless, The Rossini Family

Hey O'Day........Just wanted to say hello and let you know that I am thinking about you. I attended the healing mass last night. I can't believe the church walls are still standing, I thought for sure when I walked in they would collapse!! On a serious note...It was awesome to see all of the people that came out to support you. Keep battling Kelly, I know you can do it. Tell your mom I said hello. Andrea

The VT Family Tuesday, 10/25/05, 10:10 AM
Kelly, we have been happy to be a part of the many activities here over the last month or so. The chicken BBQ, Football game, trivia competition, and mass have been such positive ways for everyone to feel they are closer to you. I just wanted to write to let you know what a GIFT you are to those who love you and those who are now hearing your story for the first time. So many people are taking the time to pray or do some act of kindness in your name. Your courage and faithfulness are touching so many lives!! I think our wish for you can be summed up in Numbers 6 24-26: MAY THE LORD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU; MAY THE LORD LET HIS FACE SHINE UPON YOU AND BE GRACIOUS TO YOU; MAY THE LORD LOOK UPON YOU KINDLY (AND GENTLY)AND GIVE YOU HIS PEACE!

Corrie Brundage Tuesday, 10/25/05, 8:37 AM

Good Morning Kelly; Cassie and I went to your healing service last night. It was beautiful. The church was awesome. What a wealth of support you have! Continue to stay strong. We think of you everyday! We saw Andrea last night.As we were walking out of the church last night, Cassie said to me that whenever Kelly would make the 3 pointers Andrea would always say "Kelly O'Day" it was never just Kelly. This made Cassie laugh. We are so proud of you. Give a hug to your mother. Debbie, keep strong. Have a super day! Aleith

hi kelly we never talked when we went to school together but I wish you the best of luck. I know how scared you and your family are caue me mom is going thought it to and you just have to be strong and never give up its a hard fight for you and your family but giving up is the last thing anyone wants you to do.My mom had to do radiation and it scared me that I know my own mother is sick.You need to keep you head high. The most important thing is don't forget to laugh, think and turn you emotions in tears not sad tears happy tears.You are going through a rough time but lots of people support you and love you. Even people you dont know are trying to support you and stand by you and this is the type of thing that makes families become closer. My mom told me that she is scared but she wont give up cause its not her time and she has a future and kids.The cancer was at the bottom of her brain so surgery was out of the question this is the second time its come back and shes still kicken lol. if it is okay with your family and you i would love to rasie some money for you at my school cause i know how you and you family feels.Considers this an obstical that you have to over come if you read chicken soup for the teenage soul letters there is a story about a boy named tim has cancer and his girl friend stayed by him or every minute that he was awake he didnt live cause the cancer took over his brain. But dont get down there are lots of people that have survived cancer and if you keep trying you could too.well i have to go to school and remember that there is lots of people rooting for you i wish you the best of luck and dont let you chin fall. love karrie jones

Hi Kelly, I went to your healing mass tonight at St. Pat's. It was so nice, and SO MANY people came. If you remember, my daughter Lynette was on your AAU team about 1-2 years ago, and I teach at Harshaw. Lynette and I pray for you all the time, and I wear your Kelly's Hope bracelet to school everyday. I'm really proud of you for having the courage to keep up your faith. God is always with you.

April, Steve, Craig and Mike Lucas Monday, 10/24/05, 5:40 PM
Kelly, You are in our thoughts an prayers and we want you to know that we are cheering you on through this rough time. I had on the green ribbon that was handed out at a CF football Mom's breakfast over a month ago and somone in a grocery store in Binghamton wanted to know who it was for and I explained to this stranger that even though I had not met you I knew that you are a person with the most hope and courage of anyone that I know. Sometime when you get a chance look up Psalm 139. It is great. It tell how much God cares for us.

Even the kids who don't know you, know of you and your great strength and determination. Please stay strong and continue to have faith. And know that I'll continue to keep you and your family in my prayers. (Don't tell Mrs. Chestnut that I started a sentence with "and".) Love, Mrs. Urda

Over the past several weeks, I have had a lot of your friends, neighbors, and teachers tell me how much of a struggle this has been for you. I truely admire your spirit and your courage.

Hi O'Day Family, Well the temp is cooling way down, the leaves are falling, and our day to day lives seem to go on. But what doesn't seem to change is our concern, prayers, and thoughts for your family. Our family misses you and wishes you were all back home. I was talking to Sean on the way home from work today (getting an update - and wondering what i possibly could say to you here) and I couldn't help but to reflect on all the fun times we've shared. Just think, Halloween is around the corner. I wonder if there will be any strange men pulling a wagon behind them and stopping at people's houses for liquid refreshments! To go back in time would be wonderful, we could erase all the pain and suffering you are experiencing. Please know the Gildea's are thinking of you ALWAYS and we are hoping you receive the miracle that we received. Our prayers are with you all! Stay positive and stay strong. Love, The Gildea's

susie frank Friday, 10/21/05, 10:25 AM

Dear Kelly and Debbie, Ellen Sharp just showed me how to do this e-mail to you.I think of you and your family all the time. I am so impressed with how brave you all are in enduring the treatments knowing they must be painful and tiring. That kind of courage is what will make the difference in your recovery. I am going to the healing mass with many people from here. I think a group effort will send a big prayerful message. Now that I know how to use this e-mail I wiil write more.

Hey kells.. I heard you had a rough day.. I hope your feelin better and keepin your head up. Im one of the most positive people you'll ever meet, ask shane cook. No matter how bad were losing in soccer i always keep my head up. One game against oneonta we were down with 7 minutes left in the game and the whole team gave up.. and i was the only one that still beleived in us and with 13 seconds left we scored on a direct kick and went into over time and won the game. I know it seems like im babbling but i have a point. I was the only one that still beelived in us.. and at the very last second we ended up beating them.. and i know it seems like your running out of time and you may feel like giving up.. but never ever give up.. cuz if you still beleive good things can happen, and you can beat this cancer..i know and i beleive that you are gonig to get through this! I beleive in miracles... and i beleive in you! Stay stong my dear and we will all keep praying. Hopefully my mom can make time around her hectic life to bring me down there this weekend!Tell debbie i love her and im hear for her and col if they need anything! and all of you thank you so much for the bracelet.. i love it and i will wear it everyday. I Love you Kelly!!! Your gunna get through this..dont ever stop beleiving

Hi Kel - just trying to keep a message from 'AC' on every page of entries since I noticed I was not on this page (50 entries in less than 3 days!!). No new news on the job hunt - at it every day. Hope you've gotten to listen to the AAR cd I made you a few weeks ago. It's one I've been listening to for a few weeks straight now - don't forget to check out track 5 - it reminds me of how strong you've been - 'right that what is wrong and move along'. Sue's working through another Kelly's Hope shirt order - won't be long until everyone has one! Keep us posted on how things are going - thinking of you all the time....take care of mom...

Rick Spencer Wednesday, 10/19/05, 10:03 AM
Hi Kelly; The Spencer family hope's you and your family know you are constantly in our prayers. I thought of you yesterday when Joe Torre announced he was going to come back next year to manage. How much money did you take from Sean? Do one thing, don't bet him on the Giants. Based on their game against the cowboys it looks like it might be a long year, again. Must be your dad watched the game Sunday, there was a few extra cans in the Faughnans front yard after the game. Again, we love you and you are in our prayers. Rick Spencer

Cheryl Wednesday, 10/19/05, 9:59 AM
Thinking of you and hoping that you are enjoying your friends that are there visiting you today. You have many people that wish they could be there to see you and your Mom. In my thoughts always...Love, Cheryl

Sally Wednesday, 10/19/05, 6:03 AM
Good morning Kelly! Hope today finds you feeling better. I'm happy your friends will be there visiting you....that has to make you happy! Love to your mom and dad and so much to you. All the Hanifin's are thinking of you and praying for you. Stay strong, Kel. You are so amazing!!!

Tina Hendrickson Wednesday, 10/19/05, 5:24 AM
Kelly, I just wanted to say, as I read over the posts to try and keep updated about you, it sounds great that you are eating a bit more and getting some rest. I am sorry that this is the way I had to learn about you, but you really are an amazing person with such an incredible spirit!! You are a sweet and caring person to all of your friends and family it shows in the way they all feel about you. Your parents have to be so proud of the daughter they are raising. They have the gift of knowing now, how strong and wonderful you are, and how many people you have truly touched. I can't for 10 yrs to come and to hear your name and about some new wonderful thing you are doing. That is just the kind of girl you are by the sounds of it. The kind I know will do special things in the future. You take care Kelly! I think of you every day as do so many others. Know that we are all here for you!

Kelly, oops about last entry- my 2yr.old to blame! My family and I want you to know that we are sending strength through thought and prayer to you and your family. Looked at your pictures-what a beautiful girl you have become! Was thinking the other day of pushing you on the swings in Dave and Cheryls backyard and breaking Tys collarbone. Do you remember that? I bet Tyler does. (HA,HA) We will follow your progress and continue to pray! The Harringtons

Alyssa Hawras Tuesday, 10/18/05, 6:13 PM
Hi Kelly, Just writing you another note. I want to tell you that we pray for you in my CCD class every Thursday, and I pray for you every night. I look up to you, because you have so much courage. You're a wonderful role model for everyone. I know you'll be able to make it through this. And everytime I hear your name, I think of the time you slept over here. It was a blast watching movies upstairs. :)--God Bless You Kelly O'day!! Your in my thoughts and prayers forver<33*Lyssa

Hey Kels! I was just reading up on the "latest news" and I see that things arent going to well for you, and that you like to read all these entries so I decided that I would leave you a little note reminding you how much everyone misses you, and believes in you. I know that I, along with many other people in the community, pray for you everyday and we know that you are going to get through this! You amaze me with the amount of courage and stregnth that you have..and I truley believe that god wouldnt have given you this task if he didnt think that you were capable of overcoming it. Good Luck with everything and I will continue to pray for you. COME HOME SOON! <3 and stay strong kel.. i know you can do this (: *eMiLy

kara Monday, 10/17/05, 6:54 PM
hey Kelly, i was just thinknig about you and i wanted to drop you a little note. Whenever your name comes up i always seem to think of this one specific event between you and me. I know it was forever ago and i wont be suprised if you dont remember ( i have a tendency to remember really old events but then cant remember what i did the day before) ne ways i thought it was about time i relayed my memory. It had to have been at least three years ago when all us girls would do was come to your house and have a sleepover and always watch a scary movie, but i remember one night that it was like me you coll katie riss and cait, i think that was everyone and we were of course deciding upon which scary movie to watch ( all of which i hated) and they all decided to watch jeepers creepers! there was not a chance that i was going to be watching it and i knew it was going to be another night of hanging out on the computer until the movies was over ( im a whimp what can i say) n e ways you came right down there and you were right next to me for the 2 hours of the movie you sat with me downstairs and talked on the computer (iming of course) and looknig at infos and jsut hanging out until the movie was over....then do you remember our brillant plan where we decided that we wanted to scare the girls and we crept so quitely upstairs and we scared the crap out of all of them!! i dont know why but that jsut sticks in my head and all i can do it think about it when i think of you. thanks kels for caring about me so much and making sure i didnt ahve to hang out alone. Were all here back in bing but the one thing in common on all of our minds is you kels and that you are in ours prayers and that we have hope for you! thanks kel for that memory it means alot! keep your hope up and hang in there we all love you so much!!!! miss aqnd love you kelly!!!!

cindy gitchell Monday, 10/17/05, 6:44 PM
hey kelly, Just droppin you a note to let you know i'm thinking about you. I was looking at kelseys 13th birthday pictures, remember her party at the cottage and there you were in the lake swimming and then you were in the row boats having a big old splash fight with the boys. That was such a funny thing to watch. Especially for all the kids who really weren't lake swimmers remember that? the pictures of you are great, always with that big smile. not a day goes by that we don't pray for you and think of you. Prayers are powerful. we love ya kelly. god bless you , Mrs. Gitchell

Norma Tallon Monday, 10/17/05, 2:29 PM
Hello Kelly, I am in Peru with my son Mike. He has dubbed this the country of funny hats. Many of the native women wear absolutely fantastic hats on their heads. Some beautiful and some , well, silly. He looks pretty silly himself when he pulls on a woolen cap. We spent 4 days in the jungle. It was very very HOT and humid. A shower was just a way of washing off bug spray. You stay wet even after using a towel. Hang in there girl. We are all rooting from you. Even in the southern hemisphere. Love Norma

Elsie Bosso Killoran Monday, 10/17/05, 1:41 PM

SELMA VINCI Monday, 10/17/05, 12:01 PM
Hi Kel, So happy to hear that Rob, Rich and their friends were able to visit with you. I hope they didn't tire you too much. I am planning to come down to the City for the Marathon that Rob, Rich & Terrence are going to run in. I hope you will be home, but if you are still in the City, I definately will be by to see you if it is OK. I am still planning to make you some pasta/meatballs and marble cake when you get back to Binghamton (and you will!!!!) Say Hi to Mom for me. My thoughts and prayers are with you always. God Bless You. Love, Mima

Mr. LoPiccolo Monday, 10/17/05, 10:07 AM
Hello Kelly, I cannot tell you how often I either think about you or talk about you. You may already know that I live on Treadwell just a few houses away from Megan. I also work in the third grade with Mrs. Jones. You are never out of my thoughts or prayers. You should also know that I can't keep track of how many people ask Mrs. Jones how you are doing. I hear them in the halls and outside during bus duty. I am a HUGE Yankee fan too. I am a season ticket holder and I promise that you can have any ticket you want (I have 4 seats together) for any weekday game next year. I will have a Red Sox game guaranteed as aprt of my package, so if you want that one all you have to do is ask. I'll know more specifics in the spring. Stay strong and know that for every email that is posted there are dozens of people asking how you are. My wife Michelle and our four boys send their best. You are in our thoughts and prayers every day. Mr. LoPiccolo

Chenango Bridge United Methodist Church Monday, 10/17/05, 6:38 AM
Hi Kelly. I wanted to let you know that our church family has been praying for you for several months now. Your name is mentioned in every service to be put on our prayer list. We have made two "prayer shawl" for you and your mom Debbie. We're going to get them to you this week. The shawls have been knitted and prayed over by many. As you wrap it around you, it will remind you that God is with you every minute, every hour, every day. It will be like God's arms wrapped around you showing you how much He loves you and you will be blessed. God Bless You!

Tess and Kady Falkenberg Monday, 10/17/05, 5:52 AM
Kelly - we are thinking of you and keeping you in our prayers daily.....tell you mom I (Tess) said hello and that I think of her and your dad and sisters all the time - be strong, there are so many people that love and care about you. Kady, her sister Erika, and I had a great time at the Team Trivia (although we honestly didn't do very well!) Keep smiling...Tess and Kady Falkenberg

Theresa Monday, 10/17/05, 4:57 AM
Hi Kelly, Heard from Aunt Barbara and Nana last nite that you are eating and perhaps feeling a bit better...hope you are enjoying the apple cinnamon yogurts, I am gonna have to try one too! When I came to visit you on Thursday nite, you slept most of the time, but I am glad you were able to get some rest! I will be in Aruba on vacation for the next 2 weeks, but will come to visit you when I get back. Let me know if there is anything you want me to bring you back! Maybe your Mom, Dad or Nana will stay at my apartment as it is completely available to them. Kelly, know that you are in my thoughts and prayers EVERY SINGLE DAY!!! We are all praying very hard for your recovery, even if it will take a bit longer than we thought. see ya soon, love, Theresa

Stephanie Clark Sunday, 10/16/05, 9:37 PM

You have so many good things ahead of you so just try to keep faith in that you will get better! Ill write back again soon! Stephanie

Colleen Jones Sunday, 10/16/05, 6:15 PM
Kelly our precious beautiful girl, I have visited this site every day and never posted because I felt it was more for your family and friends, but I feel that I have to let you know how much you have effected my life. You don't know me but you do know my son from CV (CM) and you have crept into my heart and soul. I think of you every day and plead with our Father every night to Heal you and get you back to living the life you were meant to be living. I know that prayers are answered and miracles happen every day, and I am positive that yours is just around the corner. So sweet pumpkin stay strong and know that you will conquer this because there are sooo many people in your corner, and He will know that you belong here with your wonderful family and friends that need you so very much in their lives and make the treatments work. From a fellow Irishman to you I know that you will make it and give life one wild ride!!!!Colleen Jones
