Dear Angels

I just want to wish everyone a Happy New Year.

The 3rd of this month is a very hard day for me, 48 years ago our lives totally changed.I remember that night like it was yesterday. I never thought that night would be the last time I would see my sister as I knew her.

So many regrets as children that we just didn't realize that life could change in a moment. I just miss all those times we spent together At the ranch with our horses swimming and just messing around I truly cherish those memories

So please make memories with the ones that our important to you because you never know when things can change.

My sister still comes to me and comforts me when I am sad and just feel alone.I guess that is what big sisters do. Edwarda is always telling me just hang in there because God has a plan for all of us but sometimes it is just hard.

I guess we all just have to wait and see

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and spent it doing what they loved. I truly hope to hear from all of you in the New Year like we use too

It would mean so much to me I keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers always

God bless Mary keep Colleen O'Bara

"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!
