Just came across this website while searching for stuff that my late granddaughter, Kiersten Kandul may have posted. Kiersten died from CF only a few months after MaKenzie. She was 17. I am soo sorry for your loss! I think about Kiersten EVERY SINGLE DAY and I'm crying right now as I write this. You know, CF victims, especially the girls, are the most beautiful creatures God has ever put on this Earth. You are in my prayers.

PernieJack, BudTiffany and the entire West families,
Our loss is Heaven's gain but it is so hard at times to accept. Please know that we are praying for you all.  We are very sorry that we could not attend the funeral. I have been very ill with this flusinus bug and have been in bed for the most part. I would not give this to anyone. Again, you have lost a beautiful soul but our Father is now holding her and comforting her.  She is no longer ill. She is breathing the fresh, beautiful air in Heaven. We love all of you and pray that God will wrap his loving arms around you and comfort your hearts at this trying time.

Dear West Family: It breaks our hearts when death separates us from our loved ones. We are reminded in the Bible that there is One who sees our sorrow and pain and has promised that soon death will be done away with....swallowed up forever.(Isaiah 25:8) He will heal our broken hearts by resurrecting our precious loved ones to life again.(John 5:28,29) I hope in the days ahead as you reflect on the life of MaKenzie, and the wonderful memories left behind, that you will also find much comfort in God's promises to us for the near future. I am so sorry for your loss.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you say goodbye to such a precious one.  Prayers are that you can vision how she is now as her life begins where she is doing everything she wants to do...and all free from pain and breathing easy. And with God as your guide, you will be with her as you have prayed so long for her to be--completely well.  She completed her work here and influenced a lot of people for God.  God bless you all!

I am so sorry for your loss. I love you all and my prayers are with you in this time of such sadness. Paige is an inspiration to us all, and how brave she was thru all her sickness. I wish I could say words that would take away your pain but I know that nothing said would ever come close. She is resting in sweet peace now. Just know your family has many that love you and are praying for you all.

So sorry for your loss. I didn't know Paige personally but I heard so much about her from Jazz that I always felt like I did.  She was such a sweet girl that fought such a hard fight.  God bless your family. I will be praying for comfort to you. She will be greatly missed.

My heart is broken, Paige you have always had such a beautiful smile and sweet laugh. I am thankful to have been blessed /privileged to know you and your family. You are my hero, a true angel. Breath Easy.  Love you and praying for your family.

Not even sure how to put this into words....and I never lack for words. You will be missed, lovely lady, and a void, to some extent, will FOREVER exist amongst your family and friends. I am one of those, and in many ways both. I love ya and your family and always will. I pray for the comfort of all in your absence. We all will meet and see one another again and that will be quite the reunion. Love ya, Paige, Whit, Tiff, Bud, Sandy, Jacqueline, Pernie and Jack. Love you all a ton and the entire Trammell family is praying for you. I know it doesn't make anything easier, but I hope it helps.
