Hi Angels

We will be celebrating my mom's 89 birthday on the 24th of this month. I miss her so very much. My mom and Edwarda have been coming to me alot in my dreams just to let me know that everything will work out and just to have faith.

But sometimes it is just so hard. Edwarda's bills keep coming in and nothing else comes in to send out.. It is hard just to pay the electric and water and food because we are so far behind. But I have to believe in what they tell me.

If anyone would like to help me for my moms birthday I would greatly appreciate it even if it is just a dollar or two anything will truly help. My mom always told me that if you need help just ask so I am asking.

I keep all of you in my prayers Please keep us in yours God bless Mary keep Colleen O'Bara

Don't forget the prayer group on 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,

I promise.

And a promise is a promise!"


      Edwarda O'Bara 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
passed away on Nov 21st 2012. 
                                                 HOPE NEVER DIES


The strength, 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.

The message 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.

                                                         How You Can Make A Difference

Dr. Wayne 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.

A positive change in the world begins with each of us individually, and by helping others you are actually helping yourself!
