Thanksgiving. It is a time to be spent with family and friends and to
look back and give thanks for all we have.
I give thanks each day for all of you that are in our lives,I would
truly be lost without each and everyone of you.
My mom has been coming to me each day I truly feel her presence with
me even when I am driving. I feel the warmth and love all around me It
truly makes me feel safe and not alone.
I guess my mom knows that this is a hard month for me because five
years ago right before Thanksgiving my sister Edwarda went up to heaven
and left me here by myself, So I truly felt all alone Taking care of my
sister was my whole life and when she left I felt totally alone and was
I guess that is why they both come to me so often just to check and
make sure I am ok and to let me know that I am never really alone. So

"Promise you won't leave me, will you, Mommy?"
"Of course not, I would never leave you, Darling,
I promise. 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 TheBlessed 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.
