Following the heartbreaking and untimely passing of Kelsey Kramer, several of those whom were affected
by the tragedy and by Kelsey's life, wrote or dedicated these beautiful poems in her memory.



Forever Strong by Chris Antich read more ▶ []
Never have I known a soul so fresh and pure
The way you'd light up a room as you walked through the door.
A smile that could make a shining sun appear dim and black.
I'd give anything in this world, just to have you back.
To have been loved by you I feel so lucky, and grateful.
Now I have been blessed with an exceptional guardian angel.
God sent you here with a purpose, to show how to love and care.
And you have accomplished that and so much more, in your shortened sixteen years.
Even on your worst days, you'd make mine the best.
And now I sit here devastated, as we lay you to rest.
You have engraved your love in all of our hearts.
Through your unconditional friendship, we will never be apart.
The memories I had with you will last a whole life long.
Your spirit will live on, in all of our hearts……..
Forever Strong
I love you Kelsey


Eighteen by Jarvis Stack read more ▶ []
One word can mean so much
So much to give, but never enough
A soul passes by touching everybody
but never is it taken lightly, or mistaken.
Death is under rated, in effect.
It causes so much pain, Something I'll never get back,
I'm telling the Heavens to give you back
but they are all selfish cowards, thinking they're on track
I am only left with memories……..of the past
Tears drop, and rain falls, never moving, no time to react.
The days go slower, and my heart grows colder
It is impossible to meet anyone who doesn't know her
The only thing, left is to cope in thoughts
even though inside all we are is distraught
September 23rd will stay with me forever
It is a day of pain, when we all lost a commander
We become one, to let go of one
The Proud, the Strong and the Brightest Sun,
When God flooded the world with tears,
he knew the outcome would be from the peers.
The purest sole, rare and Divine
I would die for it back, in no matter of time.
Goodnight and Sweet dreams, a nightmare in reality
If only I had her back, to talk to me
Farewell my lovely, beautiful and proud.
The only one who doesn't stick with the crowd.
Forever Strong, You have united a nation.
Because you alone,
are God's greatest,
Creation.


When tomorrow starts without me by David M. Romano read more ▶ []

When tomorrow starts without me,
and I'm not there to see,
If the sun should rise and find your eyes,
all filled with tears for me,

I wish so much you wouldn't cry
the way you did today,
While thinking of the many things
We didn't get to say.

I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too;

But when tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand
That an angel came and called my name,
And took me by the hand

And said my place was ready
In Heaven far above,
And that I'd have to leave behind,
All those things I dearly love.

But as I turned to walk away,
A tear fell from my eye,
For all my life, I'd always thought,
I didn't want to die.

I had so much to live for,
So much yet to do,
It seemed almost impossible,
that I was leaving you.

I thought of all the yesterdays,
The good ones and the bad,
I thought of all the love we shared,
And all the fun we had.

If I could relive yesterday,
Just even for a while,
I'd say goodbye and kiss you,
And maybe see you smile.

But then I fully realized,
That could never be,
For emptiness and memories,
Would take the place of me.

And when I thought of worldly things,
I might miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you, and when I did,
my heart was filled with sorrow.

But when I walked through Heaven's gates,
I felt so much at home.
When God looked down and smiled at me,
From his great golden throne,

He said, "This is eternity,
And all I've promised you.
Today your life on Earth is past,
and here it starts anew.

I promise no tomorrow,
but today will always last,
And since each day's the same day,
There's no longing for the past.

You have been so faithful,
So trusting and so true,
Though there were times you did some things
You know you shouldn't do.

But you have been forgiven
And now at last you're free.
So won't you take my hand
And share My life with Me.

So when tomorrow starts without me,
Don't think we're far apart,
For every time you think of me,
I'm right here in your heart.



Letter From Heaven by Crystal Baptiste read more ▶ []

Hey everybody,
I hope this doesn't reach you too late.
I don't want you to worry,
Because life up here is great.
I can't wait for you to see the beauty of heaven,
But I know it's not your time.
I really miss you guys,
But I know you'll be just fine.
You know I can see you right,
So please stop shedding tears.
You guys, I'm perfectly fine,
So conquer all your fears.
I'll be watching your every move.
Relax! I won't spill your beans.
But stop all those naughty things you do,
Because you know there's nothing He can't see.
I need you to come here to meet me,
But not if you misbehave,
So please keep God in your heart,
And you'll be safe and saved.
Hey guys I know you miss me.
It's really hard not to.
But please, please stop grieving,
Because you're making me sad too.
You guys have been a great family,
And I am truly blessed.
You've raised me through my earthly life,
Now God will do the rest.
He's really a great person,
And an even better friend,
So I'm in great hands,
And on Him you can also depend.
Oh boy, I'm getting carried away.
I want to say so many things,
But I really have to go now,
Because today I'm getting my wings.
Bye you guys, love you forever and a day!
P.S.: Be good. I'll be watching!

An Angel in Flight by Taylor Mace read more ▶ []

Another life
Another loss
You'll always be in our hearts

You'll be remembered
for years and years
The memories of you
we hold dear

Your smile still shines
like the sun
that's hidden now
because you're gone

But, we know
it will shine again
because you
Kelsey,
were our friend

Whenever purple appears in sight
we will know it's you
an angel in flight.
