URGENT Message of April 3rd, 2014
Edwarda's birthday was very quiet. I
went to the cemetery and sang her Happy Birthday and just
sat and thought. I miss seeing my sister very much.
Sometimes it is just so very hard to believe that both my
mom, dad and sister are now in Heaven. When I get to feeling
like that they both come to me at night and tell me they
really haven't left me and just to believe. But sometimes
that is just hard to do.
I need to ask a favor of everyone . I
know I have said this before but never like this. I have no
money to pay any of Edwarda's bills and no food in the house
We are really broke There is only $3.00 in the bank and I am
totally lost on what to do next. If anyone has anything that
they can send us we will be forever grateful Please no
matter what it is I am begging for your help. Edwarda
brought us all together for many reasons. Let us remember
her in our hearts and prayers..
keep each and everyone of you in my prayers
Don't forget the prayer group is the 15th of
each month at 8:00 p.m.

"Promise you won't leave me, will you, Mommy?"
"Of course not, I would never leave you, Darling,
And a promise is a promise!"
was a vivacious sixteen-year-old and a mild diabetic. During the early
morning hours of January 3rd, 1970, Edwarda woke up shaking and in great pain
because the oral form of insulin she had been taking wasn't reaching
her blood stream. Edwarda was rushed to the hospital emergency room and
as she lay in her hospital bed sliding in and out of consciousness she
turned to her mother Kaye and said, "Promise you won't leave me, will
you, Mommy?" Kaye looked at her frightened daughter and said, "Of course
not, I would never leave you, darling, I promise. And a
promise is a promise!"
Those were the last words that were exchanged before Edwarda quietly slipped
into a diabetic coma.
For the past
39 years, Edwarda has lived her life in a coma, and Kaye has lived her
promise of never leaving her daughter's side.Kaye has kept a vigil at Edwarda's bedside,
caring for her every
two hours, twenty-four hours a day, for the past 38 years! She has maintained
this grueling pace and during these 38 years has not slept for more than
90 minutes at a time. As a devoted mother, Kaye chose not to institutionalize Edwarda, but rather to care for her at home and assume the tremendous
financial burden that accompanies personally caring for a comatose child.
Unfortunately, Kaye passed away March 7th 2008 and now her younger
daughter Colleen had cared for Edwarda every day since she
on Nov 21st 2012.
HOPE NEVER DIES
power, and tenacity of Kaye O'Bara's incomparable love has attracted modern day miracles, including the appearance of the spiritual apparition of
the Blessed Mother, who appears frequently before Kaye in her home.
from the Blessed Mother to Kaye is not to despair, that Edwarda has chosen this state as her means of expressing her purpose on earth. Edwarda's
mission is to create awareness and to bring comfort, hope, and compassion
to those in need. People around the world who have experienced pain and
suffering have reported that Edwarda has appeared to them, often taking
their pain and leaving them with a spiritual sense of comfort and peace.
You Can Make A Difference
Dyer has chosen to help the O'Bara's by writing of their story in a book
titled, "A Promise Is A Promise". This
book tells of Edwarda's life, the numerous challenges the O'Bara's have
faced, as well as the miracles that have occurred, including the appearances of the Blessed Mother.
