I didn't know Kenna nor her family, but she's been in my thoughts and prayers for several months and I was hoping things would turn out the other way, but God needed her in Heaven. I do know Allen and Amy and their girls. I pray God's blessings on all the family as you deal with your loss.
I am so sorry for your loss. She fought a tough battle but at least she is not in pain anymore... I know it doesn't help to hear that as I am sure everyone says to you. I want to wish her family a happy holiday, though I know it will be tough without their little girl around, just know that I am sure that she is watching down, sharing the moments with you.
To everything there is a season,
a time for every purpose under the sun.
A time to be born and a time to die;
a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
a time to kill and a time to heal ...
a time to weep and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn and a time to dance ...
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to lose and a time to seek;
a time to rend and a time to sew;
a time to keep silent and a time to speak;
a time to love and a time to hate;
a time for war and a time for peace.
I know I live far away but if there is anything I can do, please let me know.
I am so sorry for your loss. I know that she is up with Jesus, running around being healthy, laughing, joking and just plain being Kenna. She was lucky to have a family as great as you. I didn't get to follow her very long but I want to thank you for sharing your angel with us and for letting her in our lives for this short time. My prayers are with you and my heart goes out to you.
Lord, I thank you for this family and I ask that you comfort them in their time of need. Bless them and wrap your loving arms around them. In Jesus name I pray, Amen
Very sorry to hear of your loss. Lifting you ALL up to the one who bottles every tear, and praying that you will find comfort knowing she is with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

I only knew Kenna from the Caring Bridge updates that I would get. The pictures showed a beautiful young lady and I know she will be greatly missed by all. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you now and in the days to come. We also pray for the remaining family for comfort during this time. God bless. Love you with the love of the Lord.

I am sorry for your loss.
Dear Bradley Family,
You do not know me, but I felt moved to come to your Caringbridge journal the other night, after visiting the site of Morgan Warner. When I came to your journal for the first time, your sweet daughter Kenna had just passed away. I am SO SORRY about the loss of your daughter. I can't even begin to imagine the pain you've experienced along the way - especially now. You have had to endure so much and I'm sure most of the time the pain was more than you ever thought you could bare.
Even though Kenna has gone to be with Jesus, I have felt led to continue reading the journal you kept for her. My heart is moved to tears and I feel so badly for you. I feel like I know you and Kenna. December 15th is a very difficult day for me, too. My Father passed away of Lou Gehrig's on that very same day, in 2003. My Mother passed away December 17th, 2008. She was my BEST FRIEND. Today, the 20th would have been Dad and Mom's Wedding Anniversary and we had Mom's funeral on the 20th. Having just faced the ONE year anniversary of losing Mom was not easy, but God is good and I know that someday I will be with my parents again. I do not know the pain of seeing my child suffer and die, but I do know the pain of losing family members that are very dear to me.
I have been praying for you, feeling your pain, and crying for your loss - and I don't even know you. Somehow, through it all, I pray that you will feel and know the PEACE and COMFORT that ONLY the Lord can give. Many are praying for you, so please know that you are NOT alone. I will especially be praying for you the day of Kenna's homecoming ceremony. God bless you and your family and know that you are loved.
In Christ, Donna Hendren Dewey
Rhonda, Coe and family,
Words can not express how saddened I am with the loss of your beautiful Kenna. She was such an amazing girl and I am so priviledged to have had the honor of caring for her over the past year. Thank you for allowing me to know her, your family and be along with you on her journey. I will continue to keep you all in my thoughts and prayers as you begin this new journey without Kenna. She will never be forgotten, she touched all those that knew her and she will live on in all those knew her.
I am so sorry for your loss... your family is in our prayers every day. Kenna was such an amazing little girl she really inspired our family so so much.... she is in peace and such a pretty angel... May God be with you all in this very hard time. KB STRONG!!

Our prayers and thoughts are with you. We are sorry for your loss. May God comfort you during this difficult time.
God Bless You All.
I just wanted to tell you how sorry I am for your loss. I never met Kenna but because of your Caringbridge Journal I felt like I knew her. She seemed like an amazingly strong girl and it sounded as if you drew your strength from her. Thank you for opening your lives, your hearts and your struggles with us. Because we were able to look inside and see the day to day struggle she lived with it made a difference, it raised awareness. Was this her lot in life? Only the good Lord knows, but because of her sacrifice, I for one have became a regular contributor to St. Judes Cancer Research Hospital. She came, she lived, she died, but not without touching lives and making a difference. Thank you for your sacrifice and God Bless.
