Hello everyone. I wanted to extend my heartfelt gratitude for everything that has been done in loving memory of my daughter, Kayla. The outpouring of prayers, support, donations and memories shared has brought our family great comfort and has truly shown they wonderful woman Kayla was on this earth. We loved Kayla so much, and are incredibly proud of the woman she became. She has continued to share her love, and reach our hearts even after being called home to our Lord.
We cannot express enough how much the donations through Kayla’s Angels have helped our family through this difficult time. You never plan for anything as devastating as losing a child, and were by no means prepared to face this alone. But we have been truly blessed with the help and support we’ve received, and it h...as helped more than you know.
I would also like to express that although the services are over, our continued fight for Kayla and the truth has not. Our family, close friends and I are all united in ensuring justice for Kayla, sharing Kayla’s story, and continuing Kayla’s life’s work of helping others. It has become our commitment to not only fight for Kayla, but fight for all others that could become victims of traumatic brain injury. Kayla’s Angels, as a non-profit foundation, has become something positive that we feel can come from such a tragic loss. We feel that Kayla’s memory will be carried on in helping others, just as she helped others during her life.
Thanks for your continued help.
Regards, Debbie and Jeff, Katrina Cicerello

I was bless to be able to be at Kayla's service this week in Florida. The service was absolutely beautiful and the love from Kayla's friends and family was overwhelming. For those who have been asking, Kayla's service in New England will be Thursday and Friday, Oct 3rd and 4th.
As the services come to a close, we would like to remind you that your donations have been such a monumental difference. Not only has it offset some of Kayla's family's expenses, but it has really shown how much Kayla has made a difference in this world. We would like to continue on with Kayla's legacy, and establish Kayla's Angels as a non-profit foundation in support of families of victims of traumatic brain injury.
Kayla's family would like me to make a clear statement as to what Kayla's Angels is for. Kayla's Angels was created to help Kayla's family through this difficult time in their lives. It was used for any commute costs, uninsured medical expenses, and every other expense that could possibly incur with having their daug...hter in the hospital. Now, after Kayla's passing, all donations have gone to help with services and travel costs for the family, as they are having services in more than one state. Once the services are taken care of, it is Kayla's family's wish that all money left over, and all future donations, go to a non-profit organization to continue on with Kayla's life's work of helping others. Our long term goal is to make Kayla's Angels this non-profit, to help other families in similar situations as this.
