Love for Tess Smith and Family
Tess is a beautiful girl with the most contagious smile. She is loved by so many family and friends and is being wrapped in prayer here in Colorado. Tess was involved in a skiing accident and is unresponsive. Medically, there is nothing more they can do. We are relying on God and prayers as she prepares to fight this battle on her own without the aid of life support. We would like to help the family with the medical and travel expenses they have and will incur. Tess is currently being treated at the Children's Hospital in Aurora, CO. If the God chooses to take Tess as his angel in the coming hours, Tess will need to come home to Wichita. If we receive the miracle we have been praying for, she will have additional medical expenses to make her healthy again. Please, if you are able to help with these expenses, the family would sincerely appreciate it. There is no one like Tess. She is so genuine, sweet, beautiful, and the worlds best friend. We continue to pray for her miracle and know she is God's child and He will answer our prayers in His way. Thank you so much.
Here is the link to Tess's beautiful obituary. Please keep this family in your prayers as tomorrow is going to be very difficult as they lay their sweet daughter, granddaughter, cousin and friend to rest. Thank you all again for everything. No words will ever be able to express the gratitude we have toward each and every one of you who have prayed, loved,sent condolences and/or donated during this tragedy. You are all amazing people with enormous hearts. Thank you.
We will begin our travels home today but not without the hurt of knowing there should be 8 of us getting into cars, not 7. The journey home will be long and lonely for her family. Please pray for safe travels for everyone. And when Holly, Lawrence and Evan get home, Lord, please give them some peace as they enter their forever quieter home. Please, please continue to pray for this sweet and amazing family. They are the most genuine, loving people who have shown grace, kindness and incredible strength throughout this tragedy. I know the Smith family would like to thank all the doctors and staff that have provided care for Tess. They have been absolutely amazing and they are confident she was provided the best care she could have ever received. The people of Children's Hospital are like no other. They were comforting and so very helpful each and every step of the way. The love and care they showed for Tess, her family and friends was seen and felt by everyone here.
On behalf of the Smith family, we thank everyone for all you have done. Keep the prayers and support coming as the days, weeks, months ahead will be very tough. One day at a time...
I just saw this story on KAKE news that this beautiful young lady is fighting for her life, being a Northwest graduate I felt compelled to help in some way. Now to read the update and see she has lost her life is hard and I am a stranger. I cannot imagine what the family is going through. I commend the family for her organ donations and she is already an angel giving hope and life to 8 others. Prayers going up for friends and family...imagine her getting Heaven"s grand tour.
My best friend passed away in 2014 and saved 7 lives by donating her organs. Now she lives on forever through others. The gift of life❤ God Bless
So sorry for your loss....she will live on through others and always be with you!
Your story has inspired me. I too am an organ donor and the thought of my family having to let me go the way your family has had to let you go rocks me to my core. But to know you will live on in the life of 8 other people is amazing and so precious. Rip dear girl!! God bless your family during this very difficult time.
