To The Family of Kaitlynn Powell, Kaitlynn was in the same class as my son Joey Buttleman, at the Activity Center in Fremont. Kaitlynn was an adorable lil lady. She would always light up the room with her contagious smile. God Bless her as she RUNS SINGING through those pearly gates, right into the loving arms of Jesus!!! She will be missed, Angie and Joey Buttleman, White Cloud MI.

Dear Chris, Michelle, Marissa, Erin, Andrew and Emma, Our prayers and our hearts are with you during this difficult time. We feel priviledged to have known Kaitlyn, and through her to have known all of you. I know that you will all miss her every single day. We believe that Kaitlyn is now in Heaven running and skipping and dancing and doing all the things that her body prevented her from doing on earth. I know that she will always be watching over all of you and protecting you. She will be waiting in Heaven to greet you someday. Until then, remember her with a smile. You all loved her so much and she knew that, even if she couldn't tell you with words. God Bless You. Andy & Stacey Hasse, Nick and Emily (Our Emily & Kaitlyn had G tubes on the same day in 3/05 and were roommates in the hospital.)
