After contacting other families who had been through a simliar tragedy as we had, I felt that it was very important to honor the memory of all children who have suffered with this horrible disease. So I have created Kayley's mito angel friends web page which is dedicated to all those children affected by mitochondrial diseases and these are just a few of the precious children who have lost their battle with Mitochondrial disease. Please take time to remember their beautiful faces and go to their web page(if they have one) and sign their guestbook or just send an e-mail, it means so much to their families who love and miss them so much.



Some souls pass through this life time like a gentle summer rain. They touch our hearts and then return to heaven once again


Welcome to Kayley’s
Mito-angel Friends


Heavens Special Child-


A meeting was held quite far from Earth
It's time again for another birth
Said the Angel to the Lord above
This Special Child will need much love
His progress may seem slow
Accomplishments he may not show
And he'll require extra care
From folks he meets way down there
He may not run, laugh or play
His thoughts may seem quite far away
In many ways he won't adapt
And he'll be known as handicapped
We want his life to be content
Will do this Special job for you
They will not realize it right away
The Special role they're asked to play
But with this child sent from above
Comes a richer much stronger love
Soon they'll know the privilege given
In caring for this gift from Heaven
Their precious gift so meek, and mild
He is Heaven's Special Child!


-Edna Massimilla-

You are listening to


By Celine Dion


Fly, fly little wing Fly beyond imagining
The softest cloud, the whitest dove
Upon the wind of heaven's love
Past the planets and the stars
Leave this lonely world or ours
Escape the sorrow and the pain
And fly again

Fly, fly precious one
Your endless journey has begun
Take your gentle happiness
Far to beautiful for this world
Cross over to the other shore
There is peace forevermore
But hold this mem'ry bittersweet
Until we meet

Fly, Fly do not fear
Don't waste a breath, don't shed a tear
Your heart is pure, your soul is free
Be on your way, don't wait for me
Above the universe you'll climb
On beyond the hands of time
The moon will rise, the sun will set
But we won't forget

Fly, Fly little wing
Fly where only angels sing
Fly away, the time is right
Go now, find the light
