Kay Marie Sisto’s Story On Fox News 21

{–My sweet sweet Kay- Polishing My Toenails-}

~~After Kay’s murder, we’ve all
coped (slightly) and survived (faintly)  in different, unique ways.

{Beautiful Kay}

As for me– I scream, weep, buy recipe books, cry out to God, and write, write,

endless, ceaseless, torrential words sorrow.

My daddy works out at the gym, has huge Italian dinners, & catches fish
that he usually throws back in the water.

Saint Shirley, as you might already know, bakes chocolate chip cookies,
homemade chocolate cakes & buttermilk delights.

My brother, Alan, sets the tread mill on fire and pumps lots of iron.

Kay’s son, Jordan, studies.



Kay’s dream for him was to
become a doctor.


Anyhow, without further ado,

Here is  Jordan\’s Interview For Fox News Love you, Jordan K. xx

Dear Reader,  The Kay Marie Sisto Memorial Walk is this Sunday, May 20th. on the Waterfront Trail @ 1:00.  Be there at noon to pick up your t-shirts or just come to be present.

Thank you to all of my Angels for your support, kindness, generosity, time,  encouragement, prayers,  chocolate chip cookies, cards, martinins, and love love love.   You all Amaaaaze me, give me hope, &  spur me onward…  Large Pink Glitter Lips

    Kim, Kay, you, and all of your family must be so proud of Jordan! What a guy, your nephew! I was so moved by his words and his determination to see his studies through. I also loved hearing about Kay’s garden. It looks like such an oasis of peace! Alas, I will not be on the walk physically, but Roxy and I will be with you and your loved ones in spirit; cheering you on, encouraging you to the very end! We are with you and yours, Kim! We love you!

    I wish I could be there, Kim. I will be, though, in spirit. I’ll also be offering a special prayer for you tomorrow. I am so proud of you. I love your “voice”. Getting on with life after the loss of a precious one is not easy. I spring-clean, so that I am so tired I can’t think any more on the days I feel particularly miserable.

    Jordan is such a fine young man. God bless him, what a lovely interview. May all his dreams come true.

    My heart is with your family tomorrow. I admire what you are doing.

    Sending you strength, love and hugs,

I can’t help but think there is an angel smiling down from the heavens. Hugs from New Mexico ( home soon), xxoo

    I so want to walk with you. I really want to be with you. Kay is so proud of you all, she is so proud of Jordan too. I know because of how I feel anytime I read one of your posts. Sometimes I just have instant tears, sometimes i feel joy, sometimes it’s just sadness. I know that what I feel doesn’t come from me. I feel Kay without knowing her. I think of her so often and i feel the pain she has been through, but I also feel the Peace she is living now. Jordan is a beautiful soul, and it’s you Kim, you and your family who helped him become who he is today. You are supporting him and filling the void Kay has left in his life. I am sure that Kay is very grateful <3
    Love you <3

    What a fantastic young man, so composed, so determined. Using hockey for his inner rage. I wish he didn’t have to have the anger that was put there by his mother’s murder. You guys are all such a tribute to her.

    Fox did a great job with her story. Your nephew seems like an amazing young man. It’s wonderful that you have found ways to celebrate Kay’s life and that you continue to speak out so that other’s do not have to suffer in the same way. I so admire you all!

    You’re so fortunate that no matter how the family’s coping, you’re all a tight family unit. You deal with your loss individually and as a family. The struggle would be so much more difficult otherwise. You’re keeping Kay’s memory alive and still loving and giving to those children she was raising up so well.
