On Saturday, April 8, 2017 at 10:30 pm Kiara said, “Good night Daddy, I love you.” These turned out to be her final words.
On Sunday night, November 26, 2017, I went to bed and closed my eyes to fall asleep. I quickly realized I couldn't sleep, and rapidly opened my eyes, to behold a glorious vision! It was my now 15 year-old daughter, Kiara. She was her usual beautiful and smiling self, but this time her face and hair were glistening, as was the beautiful new blue dress she was wearing. She said, in her own voice, "I love you Daddy," and then disappeared. I view this as God's way of letting me know my daughter is safe and happy with Him in Heaven, and Kiara's way of telling me to share her love with all those who love her. All praises to the Lord!

Celebrating the Life of Kiara Cutting

Everywhere I roam my heart melts as I think of Kiara's winning smile. I tell her that I forever cherish that moment in the hospital on Monday afternoon, 4/10/2017 when she responded to my voice, "Kiara it's Daddy and I love you" by opening her eyes and looking lovingly at Lorraine and me before returning to Heaven.

It’s 10 months now since Kiara was called Home, and just now as I walked Lisa through our neighborhood, missing Kiara for not walking with us, I remembered the beautiful gown she bought for the 2017 father daughter ball. Kiara was no longer here at ball time, but when it’s my turn to go Home, then God willing, I’ll dance with my daughter at the father daughter ball in Heaven! May God bless each and every one of you!
