Hi Kerri-berry, I have been visiting your forever missed page this morning. I woke with you on my mind, and I miss you. I hope my belief is right that you are surrounded by other family members who have transitioned over the last few years. I often picture you all together, laughing and playing. I love you so much. You must be so proud of your Mom and your sister with her beautiful little family. Until I see you again, Peace, Love and Hugs. Aunt Barbie

Hey Kerri! 5 years gone by today! It is still as painful as day 1 but, I know today is the worst and every other day can be dealt with easier. I prayed for your presence around me today and boy did that prayer get answered! All day things popped up and were unmistakably signs of you! I thank God for allowing those little things to reassure me that I will be with you again one day! I try to honor you, and myself, by helping others through pain and mistakes. I Love You Much Kerri! And Miss You SO Much More!! XOXO Muwaah!! MA

I just found out about your passing this week. I went to visit Cope and they told me. My heart is so broken. I cannot believe you are no longer here to shine your special light on all of us. I can only think of all the fun we had together, roomie :). Your speech in California is such a great representation of your personality. I am glad that the world will be able to continue to hear your message. Love you and miss you Kerri Ward, you are forever remembered.

Happy Birthday Kerri! I hope you are happy and are surrounded by loved ones. I may have only known you for a short time, but I could see what an amazing person were. Thank you for being my friend for that short time. I hope you are at peace.

I pray that Uncle Buck has found you in Heaven. I am overwhelmed with this pain once again but, I understand that God has taken your pain away in the best way for both of you. He will take mine away also, in time. Give Uncle Buck the biggest hug ever and I will see you both later! XOXO Still love you much and miss you Much More! Muwaah!! MA

Kerri, After years of wondering where you were and what happened to you, I am heartbroken to find you have left us .You were such an amazing person. Its hard to believe ill never hear your laugh or see your smile. I will always treasure our time together. Godspeed,angel.
Posted by Kelly Forrest on 14th January 2016
Missing you today. Trying to keep positive and move forward in helping other parents navigate the road I have traveled through your struggles. But, some days "breath is all I can do." The pain overwhelms me and I just need to remember that you are where you needed to be and I need to be grateful for having you to love. I get signs daily that you and your Dad are watching over me and I can do this! I Love You SO Much and Miss You SOO Much More!! XOXO Muwaah! MA
Posted by Doreen J. Foucault on 21st August 2015
You were an amazing person. I wish I had the chance to get to know you better. I hope you had a nice birthday in Heaven.

Hi Kerri-berry, I was thinking of you and speaking of you today, and how much fun you were when we would go camping together in your young years. I'm just saying hello and I miss you. I pray that you are at peace and without pain. Love and Hugs, Aunt Barbie P.S. We all missed you at Abbe's wedding. You would have been so proud of your sister and your niece.
Posted by Barbara L Martin on 20th March 2015
My sweet Kerri-berry, I miss you so much. I just spent hours on your tribute site. I can't believe it's been two years since you went to your eternal resting place. I was listening to your voice telling your story of survival and inspiration. You were such a survivor and such an inspiration to so many others. So beautiful inside and out. I am overwhelmed at this moment with missing you, and I can only imagine how it is for your Mother. But you must be so proud of her for keeping it together and moving on in her life trying to help others in your honor. I pray that you are at peace, without pain, and I will always miss you and love you. God loaned you to us for a short time, and you taught us many lessons, but most of all love. Aunt Barbie
Posted by Kelly Forrest on 19th March 2015
My beautiful baby girl! You are forever missed every minute of every day! I am moving forward with my life as I know you would wish for me. My focus now is your beautiful sister and her family. They keep me sane and able to go on. But I also am working to get my education so I can help the parents and siblings of addicts to understand the disease and learn to live with their loved ones. Kerri, this earth is so full of heroin addiction, I realize now that God saved you from falling any further into oblivion. I miss you so much but, my plan for MY life will be a legacy to you. I will see you when God decides it's time. Until then please send your love to guide me to do good for others, just as you did always. I Love You Much and Miss You Much Much More!! XOXO Muwaah! MA

Hey Babygirl!!! (as you ALWAYS called me) I had just heard of your passing a few days ago. Was in utter shock. I remember you like it was yesterday. You were one of a kind; I remember our small car rides together after shifts at the pancake house. You always had such a vibrant energy that was unique. May you fly with the angels freely. Vanessa, Melanie, Lynz, and I will always remember you. Love, "Special K" or babygirl ;)

Our Darling Kerri <3 You just had another birthday! We all miss you more than ever <3 The day before your birthday I saw a swarm of Dragonflies in a little meadow I was passing. The first thing I thought of that it was a message from you! I know your spirit lives on. Happy Birthday Kerri <3 Sending you a great big hug and be sure to give Aunt Nancy a big hug too <3 Love you more each day <3 Love, Auntie Becky and Uncle Buck and family <3
Posted by Becky Jones on 19th March 2014

Ah, Kerri. I have never written in here before, not because I have forgotten about you, but because I miss you so. I cannot believe it has been a year since you left us. I hope you have found peace. When I think of you, as I do often, it is always with joy and love. We did not spend a lot of time together the last several years, but that does not take away from the love I have for you. So many memories, and not a bad one. You are the sweetest person with the truest of hearts. I wish I had tried harder to be there for you and spend more time with you. I will forever regret that I didn't. I just hope that where you are, you can feel my love. I miss you with all my heart, Te

Kerri, another year gone by and I cant get over the fact your not here. You helped me shake my demons and saved my soul from the devil. I owe you my life "literally". Im forever indebted too you. i will see you on the other side my friend. i live and breath today because you gave me the tools too fight with. The Lord took you you for one purpose only, cuz he needed an angel. Love you
Posted by Kelly Forrest on 24th February 2014
Thinking of you a lot lately, Most likely because it's been almost a year! I can't fathom even now that I will not be able to hug you again in this lifetime. I miss our talks and laughter. I know you thought I was corny but, I thought you were Everything! LOL Love you much. Miss you more! XOXO Muwaah! MA
Posted by Barbara L Martin on 28th November 2013
Happy Thanksgiving Kerri-berry. For days now I have thought how difficult this day was going to be for your MA and sister, and all of us who love you and miss you. This was always the one day of each year that your Ma could plan on you coming home and being with your family. I will be spending the afternoon with your MA, your sister Abbe-dabby, and Miss Lillian (and, of course, Frank). We will be missing your presence, and believing your spirit is with us. Peace and Love, Auntie Barbie

Happy Turkey Day Kerri! Your Favorite Holiday! I promise we will eat lots for you. LOL On this Thanksgiving Day I am thankful for having the chance to be your MA. You brought so much into my life and taught me so much along the way. There are so many moments I am thankful for having experienced. And, even though it's difficult, I am also thankful that God took you home to a new life of endless joy and love. Abbe, Lilly and I Love You Much! Miss You More!! XOXO MA
Posted by Becky Jones on 28th November 2013
Happy Thanksgiving Kerri <3 We always loved seeing you and your family and sharing a Family Thanksgiving dinner. I can still picture you sitting next to me at the table. I remember one year sharing what I was thankful for and one thing I was grateful for was that you were here with us because I love you so much. You are never too far from my thoughts and you are always in my prayers. I hope you are enjoying your day with your dad and other family and loved ones in Heaven. This Thanksgiving I am Thankful to have had you a part of my life and always in my heart <3 Love you Kerri <3 Love Auntie Becky & Uncle Buck xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
Posted by Barbara L Martin on 24th November 2013
Hi Kerri-berry, It's almost Thanksgiving! Knowing how important this day always was in your life, It will be hard (especially for you Ma) to accept that you are not "on your way" to join your family. But we will all be feeling your presence and enjoying the turkey dinner as always, in your honor on this, our first turkey day without you. I will be spending the day with your Mom, your Sister, and her new family, Frank, Tristen and Colin. We will have you in our thoughts and in our hearts. Happy Thanksgiving, Peace and Love
Posted by Kelly Forrest on 23rd November 2013
Turkey Day is comin Kerr! I will miss having you here to watch It's A Wonderful Life and play the first Christmas song in our house. I will start new traditions with Abbe and Lil but, I will always hold on to the old ones too. Love You Much! Miss You More! XOXO Muwaah! MA

I come here to hear your voice and when I close my eyes I can see you speak in your own so unique way. I am missing you to talk to and share my life happenings with. So I pray that when I talk to you, you can see me speak. You are with me and on my mind Every Day, Every Hour. I love you much! and Miss you More!! XOXO Muwaah!! MA

I love and miss you Kerri.. I am slowly coming to terms with the fact that your gone for good.. It hasn't been easy at all.. I feel you with me, especially when I need you... I love you XO
Posted by Becky Jones on 27th August 2013
Hi Kerri! I want to be selfish and I want you here with all of us. I do celebrate the beautiful spirit you are. You added to our lives more than you'll ever know. No one or nothing can wipe away our love and memories of you. God gave us such Blessings. And we will celebrate you always. My prayers are with your mom. She certainly is a strong woman of Faith. We miss you! Love, Aunt Becky xo
Posted by Kelly Forrest on 26th August 2013
I am slowly starting to realize you will not be here again. It is not an easy journey for me but, I am trying to live life for you and have fun doing things we planned to do. Beth and I made that Sunrise Drive up Mt Washington @ 4:30a.m. It was gorgeous. I felt you there in the wind and the sunlight. So Peaceful and exhilerating all at once. You would have loved it! Muwaah! xoxo Love, MA
Posted by Joe Murphy on 21st August 2013
To Kerri's family: On this celebration of Kerri's spirit and life I would to add this thought: Kerri's light shines on in all those who know and love her for who she is. For me, that light is a miracle and I know it will shine on into eternity. Love you Kerri and I pray for peace for all of us who Kerri is saving a chair for at that last meeting.

Lilly and I sat by the fire and watched the stars and trees like we always did and then Kristen, Brad and Bradley Jr came up for a day and enjoyed some of your favorite places. I Miss You Much Kerr! Memories are giving me the strength to move forward. Love you! Muwaah! xoxo MA

Kerri, I miss and love you so much. No words in the dictionary or on this earth could explain how deep that love goes and forever will. I miss the bond we shared. I soOo miss seeing you on most every day and reading the J.F.T. meditation. Or just chilll'n & watch TV. May God continue to keep you in His loving arms safe, sound, serene, and at peace. I love you soOo much. Love Lil Robin xoxo

Prayer continued: And I hope that I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope I never do anything apart from that desire And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road though I may know nothing about it Therefore will I trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death for you are ever with me and will never leave me to face my perils alone.
Posted by Joe Murphy on 12th June 2013
My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you.

I had to get away from everything that reminded me of you and our plans to camp and hike and have fun this summer. So I went with Beth to a place in Campton that we never went to. It was a rainy weekend and I enjoyed the rain and the quiet and the change. It did not, however help me forget those plans we made. I guess I just have to live through them and honor you by enjoying them. I WILL!
Posted by Kelly Forrest on 25th April 2013
I spent some time in Dolly Copp campground yesterday evening with Lilly just hanging around and having dinner. She is so much like you Kerri. She has your "busy" spirit and love for nature and people. I like to believe God gave her to us to remind us of you. You two would have had so much fun together. And someday you will. I Love You Much! Muwaah! MA
Posted by Becky Jones on 23rd April 2013
Kerri, I think about you everyday. You have never been too far from my thoughts and you are always in my heart. You had such a contagious smile and giggle.

I remember Kerri saying "I gotta run over to the Cope house, Ma. I just wanna drop off some stuff for the girls." Almost every time I visited I took her there. So yesterday I took her clothes over and "dropped them off for the girls". I am sure they will come to good use. If anyone out there still needs to do something, please remember Project Cope and the good work they do. for Kerri. :-)
