Broken Hearted

It with a broken heart and tear soaked keyboard that I type this.

Today, Sunday Aug. 24th 2008, Kelsey Rahne Switzer left our arms to watch over us as an angel. She is sorely missed, incredibly loved, and will forever be in our hearts and minds.

Kelsey, my beautiful angel, I hope when you left us that you knew how much we love you, how special you are to us, and how we will tell Riley how much you meant to your mother and I. Words cannot express the sorrow and heartbreak we are feeling right now, and will forever more.

I love you,

Kelsey Rahne Switzer
May 30, 2008 – August 24 2008

    It was just last week that I told GOD how perfect my life was now that I had the two most beautiful grandgirls in the world. Kelsey is such an angel on earth as she now is in heaven. Words will never express all the love I had for her. My thoughts, prayers and love go to you. Larry and I will be there for you and Riley always.

    All my love,

    Lisa, Brian, Margaret & Larry,
    We can’t begin to describe the shock we’re in right now. It is too hard to believe that Kelsey is no longer with us. We feel honored to have been the first few people to meet them in India and we will forever hold a special place in our hearts for her.

    We love you and hope you find the strength to get through this.

    Lisa, Brian, and Riley,

    I cannot begin to express how sorry I am to hear this awful news. Know the Kelsey is with God and will never know another day of pain or suffering…although I know that it doesn’t help you in your suffering very much to not have her with you. We will be praying for you that God gives you the strength to manage your grief.

  34. Alice H Says:

    I’m so sorry to hear about this. My 2.5 year old daughter loved the pictures that Demure Jen posted on her blog – she kept asking to look at the flower babies. I know Kelsey was a light and joy in your life.

  35. Christina&James Says:

    No words can describe the pain and the loss. Through faith in Him you will dance with your Cinderella again. Such tragedy is not God’s doing, but it is the Deceiver’s. Any what-ifs or should-haves or could-haves that come to mind, are again from the Deceiver. However, please know that God use ALL things for His good purpose. It is our prayer that you will see that good purpose here on earth. It is also our prayer, that no matter how much pain and/or anger you feel, you will pull closer to Him and to each other.

  36. Susan (SusieQ) Says:

    I’m so sorry you guys,
    I just heard this weekend and didn’t want to believe it was about you all.
    I am so sorry for your loss… I know Kelsey knows she was loved and lucky to have you two in her life… just like Riley still is.
    I know its hard to see it at times like this but there was a better plan for her and it had to be a way better one to top being with you and her sister. I know she will be watching you from Gods arms now and knows her sister is the best of hands too.
    Big hugs you guys. 😦
