Happy birthday Kennie! Dance with the angels and know that we miss you. Thank you for guiding Jennie. Your loving presence is felt as I watch her thriving and becoming a beautiful cowgirl like her momma! She has the same competitive spirit you always brought to the arena. I see you there every time I see her. Keep your hand on us and guide us as we push forward to continue the tradition for all the children.

Today marks another year of you leaving this home and occupying your present home. As you look down on Jennie, your Mom, Dad and Karmen we know you guide them and send them love. You know that they are missing you, but they also know you are with them with every step they take and every breath they breathe. An angel you are for sure. You will always be missed by the family and friends that hold you dear to their hearts. You are missed today as much as the first day you left us. Until we are all united again you will be missed. Keep shining your light on your beautiful family. Much Love, Paulette

I can't believe it's been 5 years since I lost my beautiful niece. It's seems like yesterday to me. I miss her so much. Kennie left such sn impression that it will make it impossible to ever feel like she's really gone. I continue to praise God for her life. We were truly blessed to have her for 30 years. She will live in my heart for as long as God has me on this earth. Continued prayers for Jennie, Celina, Cuco and Karmen. I love you all so much!
Posted by Jessica Salazar on 15th April 2016
My dear sister Celina, I will never be able to fully comprehend the loss of a child like you but I know that our God is great and will continue to comfort you, Cuco and Karmen as the years go by. I can't image that it gets easier because I miss Kennie the same as the day we lost her back in 2012. We are comforted by the beautiful memories she left and by the strength she exhibited as she fought her battle with cancer till the end. She was amazing and I know she would want us to do the same. I love you all and I will always be here for you. "I can do all things through Christ which strenghtens me." Philippians 4:13

Sending you all a big hug!! Remember always that she LIVES in your hearts. Not a day goes by that I don't think of her <3 miss her mucho!!

Only a mother will NEVER "get over it " KENNIE, it feels like it was just yesterday that you were here, you left so many memories to cherish. Missing you and loving you with all our hearts. One Day Closer.

If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. Colossians 3:1-4 Kennie, I know you are right next to our God's right hand and you will continue to send us your blessings. You will always be in our hearts. We love you forever. Missing you....

Another sad holiday without your physical presence but we all know that you are in our hearts and all the blessings sent to us by you are seen everyday. God has a plan and we will be waiting for ours and soon be together with all of us who truly loved and continue to love and miss you. Most of your material things are gone but your memories of hundreds of videos and thousands of pictures are here to stay for generations to come. We miss and love you so much..... keep watching and blessing Jennie, she's almost there........
Posted by Your Mom on 15th September 2015
Kennie, missing you today like everyday. 41 months without you here but knowing that your eternal life is so much better than our temporary one. No matter what we go through in life, God meets us there. The truth of his Word shines bright even on our darkest days. Keep sending your pennies. Soon we'll all be together. We love you so much.

Grief never ends... But it changes It's a passage, not a place to stay Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith... It is the price of LOVE. Our love has not and will not end at 39 months that you left us. We love and miss you so much....

Happy Birthday Kennie. I saw a beautiful picture of you on Facebook today that was posted by Karmen. You are missed so very much by your family and friends, but your memory stays very much alive because all of the love we have for you. Celebrate your birthday until we all meet again. Love you and miss you. Paulette

Happy Birthday Kennie. How very much you're missed, you must know all the broken hearts you left of those that love you so. We know our Lord must plan the most beautiful birthday parties for you in Heaven, we see it in the sky every night we all those stars shining down on us. Every year that goes by is a year closer to you and soon we will all be celebrating birthdays together again. We LOVE you.

Happy Mother's day, we can only imagine how everyday is a celebration in Heaven and how you are the planner. We are sure you have your arms around all the beautiful children that are with you. It doesn't have to be a special day for us to think of you, we think of you everyday. We know you see everything that happens here on earth and how you send us special gifts from Heaven. Jennie left you beautiful flowers and balloons when she was here last weekend. She misses you so much. Your Love will forever be in Jennie's heart. We miss and love you so much. ....

Miss you so much. I miss hearing your voice on the other end of the phone.... Hi Tiaaaa. You always stressed the aaaa. Memories of you make me smile...I'm not gonna lie, I do cry alot but, that just makes me realize just how much everyone here misses you. I wish that I had the ability to be so positive about life like you always did. One day we will be together again! I want to be greeted with.... Hi Tiaaaa. Love you ALWAYS!!!
Posted by Jo Pineda on 16th April 2015
I think about Kennie a lot.. Sometimes I find myself trying not to think about you too much Kennie, because I miss you too much. I always have been good at avoiding things.. Not my best attribute. In my quest to still find my life's career path, (the right one anyway) I find myself helping people find theirs along the way, and that helps me get by. I know that you would be a positive force in my life right now, and boy, could I use that. You'd be proud to know that I'm actually not half bad at driving, who knew that day would come. I'm sure you did. I love you Kennie and I miss you.
Posted by Paulette Jones on 15th April 2015
It seems like only yesterday you left us to be an angel in heaven, and it's hard to believe it has been three years. Three years of remembering you each and every day for the love you have for your beautiful daughter, your mom and dad and Karmen. Knowing you are guiding them in every thing they do. Until we all can all be together again, just know we miss you and love you so very much.
Posted by Jessica Salazar on 15th April 2015
To Celina, Cuco and Karmen... You all are the strongest people that I know. God has blessed you so much with all that you have had to endure these past three years. We know that it truly was not what Kennie wanted but I know that she would want for all of you to continue strong for her baby girl and of course, yourselves! Not a day goes by that I wish she was still here. She did leave such a strong and beautiful legacy that can never be forgotten. I love you all! All of you and Jennie are in my prayers daily.
Posted by Jennie, Mom, Dad & Karmen on 15th April 2015
Goodbyes are only for those who loved you with their eyes. Because for those who love with their hearts and soul, there is no separation. Kennie, as we sit here watching and hearing you on all the beautiful videos you left behind we see what a beautiful legacy you left on this earth. You left a story to be proud of, with nothing to hide or be ashamed of, your daughter will be so proud of you and the mark you left behind. Memories can never be erased. 36 months feel like 36 seconds but the strength God has given us will prevail. Soon we will all be together again. We miss and love you so much. ♡♡♡

Christmas is a day of joy. But for me and my family, it is also filled with sadness, because it is a day when Kennie's absence is intensely felt. Kennie loved Christmas! It was always a big deal to her as a little girl, and when she became a mother, she wanted it to be a big deal for her daughter, Jennie, always was so thoughtful in her choice of gifts. She had fantastic "wrapping skills." We know Christmas in Heaven is better than Christmas on earth, no twinkling lights, but the radiant light of heaven itself. No glass angels on trees, but real, holy angels of God all around. In Heaven there is peace. On earth there is war. In Heaven there is perfect harmony. On earth there is often friction among friends and family. In Heaven, feasting and perfection on earth there is fattening food and illnesses. We don't need to sorrow for our loved ones who are celebrating Christmas in Heaven, but we do sorrow for ourselves over their absence. Kennie, you are so loved and missed and we never know who will spend Christmas in Heaven next year. Merry Christmas our beautiful daughter. We love you.

Kennie, today is only 29 months that God took you with him and it is 72 years that God sent your Dad to this earth. It is a day that you and Jennie would be the first to call him and plan a special time with him. Kennie, as you know from above, your Dad misses you so much. To the first and only man who truly loves you, not one day goes by that he doesn't cry for you, today will be no different. We miss you so much. Your Dad will hear you and Jennie sing in the wind and look up to the skies and see your beautiful smiling face. You are so loved.

WHY? The question that is never far away The healing doesn't come from the explained Jesus please don't let this go in vain You're all we have All that remains So here we are What's left of us Where glory meets our suffering WE'RE ALIVE Even though a part of us has died You take our heart and breathe it back to life We've fallen into Your arms open wide When the hurt and the healer collide BREATHE Sometimes we feel it's all that we can do Pain so deep that we can hardly move Just keep our eyes completely fixed on You Lord take hold and pull us through It's the moment when humanity Is overcome by majesty When grace is ushered in for good And all the scars are understood When mercy takes its rightful place And all these questions fade away When out of the weakness we must bow And hear You say "It's over now" Jesus come and break our fear Awake our heart and take our tears Find Your glory even here When the hurt and the healer collide Only those who have lost a loved one can feel this.

Kennie, today just like every day is full of memories, happiness and tears as today is only 28 months that you left us. To some it feels like years, but to those that were sincere in their love it feels like yesterday. Wherever you are resting we hope that you can see, how precious and uplifting your memories are to us. We feel that you are with us in everything we do. The few times your beautiful Jennie is with us, we talk so much about you and the dreams you had for her. She will never forget you no matter what happens in her life. You left a mark in so many people's lives you can imagine in the seven years with your baby girl. We will always love you.
Posted by Your Mom on 15th June 2014
My beautiful Kennie, another Father's Day without you. You were always the first one to call your Daddy on this day. He misses you so much. It's been 26 months today and it still feels like it was yesterday that you were planning how to celebrate this special day. But now you are celebrating with the Greatest Father, Our Lord God. Our lives have continued without you but they will never be the same. And only those people who don't have a heart will never understand. Soon we will ALL be together again. We love you so much.
Posted by Your Mom on 10th June 2014
Your beautiful baby girl Jennie is 9 you can see, she's just as beautiful as you. And is looking more and more like you as she is growing. Keep guiding and guarding her from Heaven. A Mother's Love is Forever. She remembers every Birthday party you made for her and about them with such joy in her eyes. She was blessed to see all her family and Friends this past weekend. She had a wonderful time. We love you Kennie.

Happy Birthday to a sweet angel in Heaven. Not a day goes by that i don't think of you. You left a carbon copy here in Jennie. What a pretty little girl she is and i hope she grows up to be just like you. I hope you celebrated your day penning and sorting and caring for people just like you did here. Love you and miss you Kennie.

Happy Birthday up in Heaven my sweet friend! I think of you often and have your family and Jennie always in my prayers.
Posted by Jessica Salazar on 15th May 2014
Wow, it's amazing how are human feelings work! The hardest feeling I've experienced was losing my beautiful niece, Kennie. How someone forgets so easily is beyond my understanding! I always made sure to call her on my way to work to wish her a happy birthday. Now those are just wonderful memories that I'll cherish forever. Kennie's memories are always in my thoughts and her daughter and family are always in my prayers.
Posted by Jennie, Mom, Dad & Karmen on 15th May 2014
Happy Birthday Kennie! We miss you so much. Our life has not been and will never be the same without you. You will always be in our hearts. Your beautiful daughter, Jennie, was the most precious gift God gave you and she will always love you.
Posted by Sandra Alaniz on 7th May 2014
I just discovered this site. What a wonderful tribute to Kennie! We think of you often sweet Kennie. You taught us so much and shared such great memories with us that we will cherish forever. No doubt you are an incredible light in heaven as you were to us on earth. Love You!!
Posted by Kriste Jackson on 15th April 2014
Thinking of you and your family often. You are missed Kennie and your presence is felt as you use your angelic means to guide Jennie.
Posted by Jessica Salazar on 15th April 2014
My beautiful niece. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about her. Her smile, her laugh, her continous conversations... If you knew her, then you were definately blessed to be around her. It brings joy to my heart to think about so many lives that she touched. I miss her so much. This feeling may never change but I find comfort in God's word. Philippians 4:6-7 says, Never worry about anything. But in every situation let God know what you need in prayers and requests while giving thanks. Then God's peace, which goes beyond anything we can imagine, will guard your thoughts and emotions through Christ Jesus. My prayers continue to go out for her daughter Jennie and the rest of my family. May the love of God surround all of them always.
Posted by Jennie, Mom, Dad & Karmen on 15th April 2014
Your presence is still with us and you will never leave those who still love you. Life has changed without you but the beautiful memories you left behind are priceless gifts. And your beautiful daughter is the ultimate treasure. As everyday goes by she is more like you. We love and miss you so much. Soon.....
Posted by Jennie, Mom, Dad & Karmen on 15th February 2014
Kennie, we know you are with God and probably keeping him on his toes, like you always did with us. It has been 22 months since you left and not a day goes by that we don't see something that reminds us of you. We're sure you had a huge celebration for your Pamo's birthday. We miss you both so much. Jennie misses you too.
Posted by Jennie, Mom, Dad & Karmen on 15th January 2014
Everyone has lost, or will lose, someone they love. and, most likely, this has happened to us more than once....believe me when I say no one is "blessed" with a grief-free life. Kennie, as each second passes, our love for you is even greater and so much has happened in these last 21 months, that we know you are taking care of us from Heaven, as you sit right next to Our Lord, keep "Blessing" all your family and friends. We will always love and miss you.
Posted by Jennie, Mom, Dad & Karmen on 1st January 2014
Only God and you know what 2014 will bring to us. It was a blessing to have you as our daughter, we will cherish every memory you left us. Knowing that no day is complete without you, it is also a blessing to know that you are in the presence of our Lord. We will love you forever and you will forever be in Jennie's HEART, that can never be taken away.

Our beautiful Kennie, We know that our Christmas here on earth is nothing compared to the one in Heaven, seeing the stars at night and the clouds during the day, we know you're in the better place. All your family miss you and love you so much. Jennie is safe because of YOU, keep watching over her and also those who once loved you too. They need God. Time is flying by and we will all see you soon. Merry Christmas in Heaven Kennie. Only those who are mothers know that "A Mother's Love is Forever"

Kennie, 20 months today, still seems like yesterday to those who love you. We miss you so much. For every mother in this world, the love of your child is beyond life and losing them, there are no words. Kennie, we know you are in a better place without the evil in this place. Continue to bless your baby girl, Jennie.

Kennie, we miss you dearly. Every 15 of the month is so hard for us...harder than the other days. We have such a deep void in our hearts. We know you are shining your light down on us. We love and miss you so much.

Missing you Kennie. As you can see from Heaven, Jennie is looking more and more like you as she gets older. What a gift God left us. Your friends are thinking of you as this month goes by and remember how brave you fought your battle. You are in everyone's heart. Your beautiful memories will never be forgotten. We love you very much. Your spirit is here with us always..

Kennie,only 17 months today that you have been gone but the memories you left us with are never going to leave us. We know that you will be sending a special gift to your daddy for his 71st birthday today, even though it can never be the same without you. A real Daddy is someone who puts his child above their own selfish needs and wants. Your Daddy was that dad. We Love & Miss you so much.

Only those who truly LOVED and continue to LOVE you, Grieve. It is the only way to really have "inner peace", the actions of those who think they have peace, is a lie only they believe, no exceptions. WE LOVE YOU KENNIE.

Today is a short 15 months that you left this temporary life but it seems like yesterday. As we continue to see all the videos and pictures you left us with, they remind us that we will be together soon. What we all learned from you is to Please God and not others and that is exactly what we are doing for you. As you can see from Heaven, Jennie is looking more and more like you. We love U.
