I visited with Kyli on numerous occasions while visit my folks at Brady. She delighted in talking about Estella and enjoyed showing off her tattoos. You can be sure that Kyli had an impact on everyone she came in contact with. Please know that you, along with Kyli, are in my thoughts and prayers. May God give you Faith that He is holding Kyli in his arms, Hope in His promise that you will one day all be together again, and Love in remembering how much Kyli loved you.

Augustus Steinmetz I will always remember you and your smile even after all these years. The memory's of sledding behind Cody's pickup. U put me on a horse for the first time. We even watched dogs being born for my first time. I had a lot of first times with you Kyli, and I remember and enjoyed them all. I pray peace has found you now. With love, Gus

So much sympathy for her family. I used to runaround with Kyli in High School. Such a big personality. She was such a dare devil and I would definitely classify her as a 'Rebel'. My thoughts and prayers go to her beautiful daughter and her equally as beautiful mother, Elaine. Rest in peace, dear Kyli. You're free of MS.

So very sorry to hear of Kyli's passing. I was not aware of her struggle. She was such a sweet middle school student when I had her in my reading and English classes in Letcher. May God bless you all with his comfort and peace at this difficult time.

Dear family of Kyli: My heartfelt condolences. I often assisted Kyli to communion at Zion Lutheran Church. She was always cheerful and grateful. Kyli was God blessed. She was always eager to visit, laugh, and hold hands. I will miss her a great deal. Wishing you peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts.
May you be comforted by the outpouring of love surrounding you.
