For those of you asking for more details about Kyla's arrangements, they are as follows:
Calling hours will be held on Sunday, June 8, 2014, from 2 to 7 p.m., at O’Brien Funeral Home, 24 Lincoln Ave., Forestville/Bristol. The funeral will begin on Monday, June 9 at 9:30 a.m., from the funeral home and will proceed to St. Stanislaus Church, 510 West St., Bristol for a Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. Burial will follow in St. Joseph Cemetery, Bristol. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Kyla’s name to the Kyla’s Kids Memorial or to Remember Kyla at the Farmington Bank, 475 Broad St., Bristol.
Thank you for all the contributions and offers of help! You have helped ease Kyla's family's burden with such kindness and generosity. I hope we can continue to raise funds for this deserving family.
It has come to my attention that not all donors were aware that GoFundMe takes a 7.9% + .30 fee per donation (about 80 cents per $10.00 given). This is to cover credit card processing and use of their web technology, which has enabled us to reach many more people than a local fundraiser. If you would like a refund of your donation so that you may donate directly to the "Remembering Kyla" fund at Farmington Savings Bank instead, please message me as soon as possible so I may issue you a refund. Sorry for the confusion.
Woke up this morning and couldn't believe that we'd almost reached our current goal and almost tripled the original one. Incredible! I spoke with Kyla's brother and sister yesterday -- they are beyond grateful for this remarkable show of support in honor of their sister. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
So many people in this troubled world are kind and good -- we are touched by all of your generous donations and offers of help. Thank you for helping the Ryng children and their extended family cope with this tragedy. I also want to thank WFSB Channel 3 for adding this link to their website and mentioning it this afternoon on the news. I hope we can continue to raise money for these kids!
The Ryng children, ages 4, 3, and 20 months, lost both of their parents under tragic circumstances on June 4, 2014 in Bristol, CT. We are setting up this fund to help the family of their mother (my cousin, Kyla Ryng) with expenses and to care for her orphaned children. No child should have to witness what these poor little ones did. Please help if you are so moved.
Checks may be sent directly to Remember Kyla or to Kyla's Kids Memorial, Farmington Savings Bank, 475 Broad St. Bristol, CT 06010.
My daughters were friends of Kyla and said she was the only person they knew that they couldn't find a negative quality about her ! I am soooo sorry for your devastating long and pray that your family will sometime find peace in knowing that she was so loved by everyone. God bless you all!
