I just wanted to send out a special thank you to all
of you who have kept in touch with us. I have come
to depend on your friendship that you have given to
me over these past years. I would truly be lost
without all of you. I truly look forward to the
letters I receive from all of you just checking in
It means the world to me. I keep each and everyone
of you in my prayers and ask that yours lives stay
Blessed for all you have given to us. The only other
thing I have to give each and everyone of you is my
friendship as well. So just thank you for always
My sister and mom come to me when I sleep and tell
me just to trust in my faith and everything will be
ok. I know they are right but being human sometimes
it is just hard. The bills for Edwarda's care just
keep coming in and I feel overwhelmed. Then I
remember what I have learned from both of them Just
to trust and to remember that I am not alone.
Please continue to keep in touch with us and help us
with what you can. Your cards and letters mean so
much to me. So thank you once again. We will
continue to keep you in our prayers Please keep us

prayer group on the 15th of each month at 8:00pm.

"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.
