Thank you everyone who sent cards and bath fizzies to Kyle Wylie and his big brother Nicolas in the last month (posts here, here and here). The cards and boxes brought him and his entire family hours of fun and joy. Kyle got so much mail that he even had some of his friends over one day to help him open his stacks of good wishes. It was a wonderful expression of everyone’s overwhelming generous spirits. Thank you for that.
Sadly, Kyle passed away on Saturday morning in the arms of his loving family. In the two years since he was diagnosed, Kyle has had many amazing experiences: Hawaii with his family, a cruise through the Caribbean with dear friends, Florida with his family, playing football with Jake Locker from the Huskies, honorary Sheriff for a day, a private ride in the Cat up at Mt. Baker and a fun trip to Arizona with loving friends. Throughout the entire two years, Kyle remained chipper, upbeat and unfailingly easy going. He was a favorite of his Doctors and Nurses at Children’s Hospital and provided levity and joy every time he visited.
Kyle will be missed dearly by all who knew and loved him. Please keep his family in your hearts, thoughts and prayers.
