Kyle was fun, F-U-N. Wherever he went, a party broke out, and if there was a costume to put on, he was the first one to put it on. When he graduated from eighth grade, most of the kids were in shorts and shirts. No, he was in tails, top hat, ascot, cane, and having a good old time. That boy had to take it to the top, and he was just fun!
Three of the kids had a toga party one night, just because it sounded fun, that’s the kind of kiddo he was. He would walk into a room, and, you know how some people just occupy space? They walk in and everybody’s attention turns to them. He was one of those. You wanted to know, who’s that kid?
Fun! When we lost him, this 20-year-old kid knew people around the world. His best friend flew from Australia to Louisiana to be there for his service. A man on the Isle of Wight lit a candle. How is it that a 20-year-old kid knows people all around the world, and they care about him? He’s good fun. I worked the whole time he was growing up, and when he was about four years old, I came in one Friday afternoon, and he came running up to me, latched his arms around my leg, looked up, and said, “I lost you, momma.” Aww, that just pulled at my heartstrings. It still does because I’d like to grab him, and say, “I lost you, Kyle.”

Susan, in the midst of loss, your writing brings a joy. I smiled and felt as though I really wanted to know your son. What a neat blessing of God! And, it truly made me want to know you more. This woman who can share such beautiful things? She’s a God girl, one with a heart after God. Like David. Amen.
Oh Kristi, thank you–love hearing God girl! And humbled to read like David. You bless me. Susan
Sharing the joy Kyle brought into your life will show others the way to a sense of peace when losing a loved one. I was smiling the whole time I read about Kyle! Have a blessed weekend!
Thank you Mary. That makes me smile knowing it lit up your face! He (Jesus) still does that to us, doesn’t He?
Susan, sitting here tears streaming. I am so grateful our paths crossed. The beauty of our Lord is so seen in you as you speak. I don’t jump to buy a new book or a new author easily. I so apologize for being this way. But today, yeah today it happened. Ordering one for me & one for a friend who lost her son, who died at the scene in a most tragic car accident almost 2 years ago. May God use your story, redeeming every hurt, so that others will find the comfort & peace they need in Him. Cannot wait for the release of this book to see all God is going to do! Blessings!
Joanne, Know this-I don’t jump on the band wagon for a new author either, unless recommended by someone. So from my heart, thank you. I pray the words dance off the pages into your heart to bless you. HUGS. Susan

I have two sons and this brings tears to my eyes. Thank you for showing us how to love, and how to grieve, and how to find joy in difficult places! Life is hard. Wonderful. Beautiful. I’m glad we’re not alone in all of it!

Sweet, sweet, sweet. Delighting in Kyle, who was “Fun-Fun-Fun” with you Susan. What a little bundle of joy. I love the light that shines within you as you talk about him. Thank you for sharing your heart with us.
