Mother asks for help keeping daughter’s memory alive

To the editor,

My name is Lisa Poteet and Kayla was my daughter. Since that horrible day on Nov. 24, 2008, when our precious Kayla was taken from us, this community has continued to show our family love and support in so many different ways. It has meant so much to us and we will never be able to thank you enough.

I would like to ask everyone in the community, area businesses, factories and churches to help the HCHS National Beta Club chapter raise money in Kayla’s memory so they can award two scholarships to her classmates. Kayla was such a gifted person who loved education. She loved going to school and always had a beautiful smile on her face. Kayla wanted to be a doctor. Kayla is not here to carry on her education, but all of you can help one young man and one young lady receive a scholarship to help pay for theirs. These scholarships are very important to the senior class this year because it would have been Kayla’s senior class.

Rohs Opera House was nice enough to show a movie and not charge admission, but instead let the Beta Club take up donations. Our family thanks you so much for your support.

Please help us keep Kayla’s memory alive and help two young people further their education by making a donation to the Beta Club.

Again, our family would like to thank you for all your love, support, and prayers. We ask you to pray for us as we continue this journey we are on.

I am no longer here

I am afraid to say

But somehow I am always with you

Every single day

Remember me for who I was

Not the way I passed

You will visit me in heaven soon

And forever it will last
