Thanks to all of you. To the person who is collecting her writings and other stuff. Thank you. It has been two months since she left us. In that time a precious young lady who I coached many years ago she played soccer with (many years ago) has also left this earth. Today we had to put down a family dog that greeted her when she came to our home from Russia 14 years ago. It has been the most difficult stretch of our lives. Had she hung around she would have also witnessed her older brother getting his first real job and moving out of our home as well as her sister transfering to a new university. Do we blame Tumblr for her leaving us? I don’t quite know how to answer that. Tumblr has many places of light and darkness. Kayla could have leaned on us and we would have kept her safe until the she understood the world and how she fit in it. She chose not to lean on us. In the end she chose to lean on friends in the online world. Friends in the online realm could not rush to protect her from herself. We could have. I thank you for loving her, but what we really needed was someone who could physically save her. We would love to have whatever you collect. Thank you for the thoughts, prayers, and kind words. I know her words and photography will live on for ever.
