Let the memory of Kaylee Grace be with us forever

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Kaylee Grace Whetzel. Kaylee Grace was 5 years old, born on March 20, 2004 and was taken from her loving family and friends on October 23, 2009 by a senseless, cold-blooded murder. So many hearts were broken that tragic night. Not a day goes by that Kaylee Grace is not thought  of or a tear shed. Just as we have wept, so has Jesus. John 11: 35 "Jesus wept". Just as Jesus wept over his friend Lazarus, he too has wept for Kaylee Grace. Kaylee Grace, we love you and your memory will be cherished in our hearts forever. We love you and miss you. Daddy, MawMaw, PapPap and family.
