My son has a severe peanut allergy and is taking part in a clinical study @ Lurie Childrens Hospital. Every time we go in for injections or a food challenge, I think of your daughter. We do this memory and honor of her and to help find a way to keep kids safe. Blessings and peace to you.

All my blessings go to you, Katelyn.

I'm sorry I never found this site before, but my deepest condolences go out to her family. I didn't know her that much, but I knew she was a very good person, and I will always remember her death as the darkest day of my time at Edison. Now that I am older, and understand the pain of death more, I grieve and pray for her every day. I have since graduated from Edison, and now, in Loyola Academy, I pray for her in theology. No person should ever have to go through this loss. Since her death, Edison has prohibited any peanut products in the school. I sincerely hope no more deaths occur at that school. We have flowers planted outside the school in her honor, and we remember her every year at graduation. I was only a 5th grader at the time, and though I grieved, I didn't really understand. But now, whenever I think of it, the emotional pain is crushing. She didn't deserve it. Nobody should have had to live through that moment.

All my blessings go to you, Katelyn, and may a new life await you.

My sincerest regards,
~R~

Dear Katelyn Marie,
I can't believe how time has passed since you left us. It seems like just yesterday that you were here with us. You are missed dearly, Katelyn, I like to think you are skipping around in Heaven with Father Dowd, who baptized you.
God bless you, Katelyn Marie!
We love you. Happy Birthday!
With love,
Your Godmother,
Nancy

I didn't know you or your family, but my heart goes out to all of you. We use to live in Chicago but are now stationed in Va. Our daughter Felicity was born Dec. 30 2010. A year later we found out she had severe life-threatening food allergies to peanut, tree nuts, and eggs. I pray for a cure someday. God bless you and your family.

Dear Mike, Malu and Mickey, I was shocked and deeply saddened to learn of Katelyn's death when I saw Mike on channel 7 last night. I was a friend of your former next door neighbor, Bernie, and remember Katelyn as a very sweet, friendly and very smart little girl. My heart breaks for you and I pray that God will help & strengthen you. Linda (Chicago)

Mike and family, I was stunned watching the news last night and seeing the story of your beloved Katelyn. I remember my days at Assumption church at the 7:30 mass at my little friend Katelyn coming to me at the sign of peace. Mike congratulations on the new law so that other people don't have to feel your pain. Katelyn is getting daily hugs from Fr. John in heaven.

Mike, Malu & Mickey, though it has been many many years, my heart broke when on the channel 9 news tonight I saw a picture of a dad & his daughter, that i immediately recognized as Mike and Katelyn, and heard of your unimaginable tragedy. I remember Katelyn being so sweet, so precocious and so mature when I worked with you and your family all those years ago...Mickey was about 3, so she must have been about 5
Or 6? Malu, my daughter plays with the wedding bears & purse you gave to me. Please accept my deepest and most sincere condolences, and to Mickey, all my best and a special hug...Martha Rubio-Cajigas,DT

To the Carlson Family, I get sad every morning I go into the classroom. I can still see her 1/2 hour before she got sick. Writing Jesus on the board. She was one terrific lady. I thank God I was blessed with knowing her. I will cherish her in my heart. God bless your family.
June 01, 2011
Katelyn was so sweet and kind and had so many friends. I had never really talked to her at school, but I regret it because at her in-school memorial, I was so sad and realized she can't come back so I could say hello again. She had a great sense of humour from what I've heard and was just simply a great person. I miss Katelyn... we all should. <3
May 31, 2011
Katelyn was and still is so kind hearted with a beautiful soul. And she was a close friend of mine. She cared for her friends, family, and most of all her brother Mickey. I miss her soooooooooooo much!

Dear Dr. Ignacio,
I just heard about your daughter yesterday from one of the teachers at Mickey's school. I read this story in the paper, but didn't realize it was your daughter. I was so shocked to hear this news. I am so sorry for your loss. I remember the button you used to wear on your lapel shortly after Katelyn was born. I will remember you, Katelyn and your family in our prayers.

March 14, 2011
I first met Katelyn in Tae Kwon Do when she was four years old. She was full of energy and always ready to learn. Katelyn's maturity level often made me forget that there was a seven year age gap between us. I felt close to Katelyn and was devastated to learn about her death. My condolences go out to her family.

My deepest sympathy from Calgary, Canada.

To the Carlson Family,

I am the mother of a child with multiple food allergies. Since I did not have the fortune to know Katelyn personally, I hope I am not intruding on your personal grief.

When I read the news about her, I was shocked and heartbroken. You are living through my own greatest fear. Words cannot describe how terribly sorry I am for your loss.

Please know that you are not alone in your grief. All throughout the food allergy community, in forums, on blogs, in hushed tones between parents, Katelyn is mourned and tears are shed.

You are in the thoughts and prayers of all of us.

Dear Malou, Mike, and Mickey,
We are so very sad about Katelyn's sudden passing. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. We remember Katelyn fondly. Whenever we visited school or chaperoned a field trip, she always welcomed us with a cheerful greeting and sweet smile. Her poise and self-confidence impressed us over the years we knew her. And Katelyn’s positive attitude was refreshing. Whether stuck in traffic on a school bus, or just dutifully manning her post at the Science Fair for a long stretch, Katelyn would say something upbeat to brighten everyone’s spirits. What a wonderful world it would be if everybody were like that! Katelyn was an ambassador of good will for your family, her 7th grade class and Edison school. She will be deeply missed by many.

We admire and hope for your strength, and we’ll keep your family in our prayers. Thank you for sharing your lovely daughter with us.

Glenn, Paula, Gabriel and Miles Krell
December 24, 2010
I am so sorry for your loss my family will keep your daughter and family in our prayers and thoughts during this most difficult time.

Difficuluct to imagine that the bubbly , lively Katelyn is no more . I can still see her Karate moves and energy and her answering the phone calls . May God give Malou and Michael , my dear friends to bear this tragedy--Anu and Prasad Koduri
December 23, 2010
Over and over, we find it difficult to understand the sense behind an untimely death, especially that of a dear, young, beautiful person. We reach a point where we rebelliously question God's logic in all these. And we don't usually get a satisfactory answer, or at least that's how we perceive it.

I say it again, in due time all things must pass. The wounds will heal, but life will never be the same again. Tragic, but we only have to trust God's supreme judgment. It is, after all, our best comfort.

Peace.

My condolences, Tata and Mike. It's so sad to hear about the sudden loss of Katelyn. I have 4 kids, all have allergies to different kinds of food, furs, etc. My husband almost died of food allergy (crab). The death of Katelyn has heightened my awareness (again) about the real danger of allergy. All of us here - Nats, Nora, Gongi, Angeli, Agnes, and all of UST Med Batch 84 grieve with you, Mike and Mickey. Rest assured Katelyn is very happy with Jesus and our Father in heaven this Christmas and for always.

The Broken Chain

We little knew that morning that

God was going to call your name.

In life we loved you dearly,

in death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you,

you did not go alone,

For part of us went with you,

the day God called you home.

You left us peaceful memories,

your love is still our guide,

And though we cannot see you,

your always at our side.

Our family chain is broken,

and nothing seems the same,

But as God calls us one by one,

the chain will link again.

Dearest Mickey, I know this is an almost impossible situation for your family, but I can't help but pray especially for you. I have a son who also has a big sister. I always believed that he loves her more than anyone else. I'm very, very sure you love your sister the same way. I also feel Katelyn is especially sad and concerned to, temporarily, say goodbye to you. You were the only person on earth who God specifically assigned to her to take care of. As a big sister, and now as an angel in heaven, she will be even more able to help watch over you. You are a very special boy because of who you are and because of the special love your sister Katelyn has for you. God bless you and your family.

December 21, 2010
Dear Carlson family,

Words cannot express our shock and grief regarding Katelyn's loss and our hearts are heavy with profound sorrow. We have received this news while we are in India and wish we could have been there to bid Katelyn goodbye.

We want to take a few minutes to tell you what an amazing person Katelyn was. The kids have always looked up to her as a role model in Tae Kwon Do. Her smile was exuberant, her energy seamless, and the most amazing thing about Katelyn is that she had the ability to make even the most inconspicuous person feel significant. Perhaps this was her gift to the world.

My children Nihal and Saniya were in complete awe of Katelyn and are completely devastated by her loss. Katelyn took it upon herself to make sure my daughter Saniya felt welcome at school and would always tell me that she would keep an eye on her when she started kindergarten this past September. Whether it was a wave from one of the "big kids" or Katelyn helping her with a heavy bag, Saniya felt so comforted by Katelyn presence on the bus and in her life. On her first day of kindergarten, she excitedly reported that Katelyn had seen her in school and said hi to her. For a shy, nervous five year old, one of the older, “cool” kids saying hello to her, meant the world to her. My son Nihal was always inspired by her dedication to Tae Kwon Do and always aspired to bring that same energy to his martial arts. He would ask me thousands of questions about Katelyn and comment on how much she accomplished in Tae Kwon Do at such a young age. Truly, she was Master Chuck’s best student and each and every one of those kids looked up to her and sought inspiration and guidance from her.

Its not the big things that Katelyn did (even those were great though) but the little things that made her presence felt. In this world of frequent chaos and insanity, Katelyn's smile, energy, and love for life was not only a breath of fresh air, it created much needed sustenance from the frequent selfishness of the world. During my visits to Edison, Chang's Martial Arts, or even the bus stop in the mornings, Katelyn always took the time to wave hello and took the extra moment to make my daughter Saniya feel comfortable. Her beautiful eyes would always light up and she was truly a joy to be around. Perhaps this is her legacy to the world that she taught so many of us that love and kindness conquers all and truly, with these small and random acts of kindness, she stood out, she was truly in a league above many others.

I also want to comment on how much Katelyn loved her little brother Mickey and how dedicated she was to him. I hope he always takes this love with him wherever he goes. Mike, you are an amazing father and while I haven't had the privilege of interacting with your wife, I can only begin to imagine what wonderful parents you are to raise such a beautiful young woman.

Katelyn will remain in our hearts and you all close to our hearts during this very very difficult time. Really, there are no words but I hope these short paragraphs have somewhat conveyed the impact Katelyn has had on our lives. She will be missed so very much and every day while we are here in India, we spend some time remembering Katelyn and what a wonderful, phenomenal young woman she was. It brings me profound sadness that the world won't continue to be impacted by her incredible presence but also utter joy in the knowledge that so many of us were fortunate to be touched in small and big ways by all that was Katelyn. Thank you for bringing her into the world and sharing your beautiful daughter with us, even if it was for a brief time. She is much loved and always will be remembered with pride and gratitude.

With much love, peace, and fortitude as you go through this healing process,
Manisha, Ravi, Nihal, and Saniya
December 20, 2010
What a wonderful girl. I am so sorry for your loss, the deepest loss imaginable. Katelyn was such a bright and beautiful light in the world. Please take care of yourselves and each other.
December 20, 2010
Dear Dr. Ignacio
I remember how we used to joke with one another, at RHMC, when we were pregnant, at the same time, with our daughters (your Katelyn & my Laura). As I tucked my daughter in bed and kissed her goodnight, the unfairness of what has happened to you overwhelms me. My heart weeps for you. I pray that God strengthens you and your family to be able to withstand the unimaginable.

My dear Brother Mike. Words cannot express my sorrow since the word of Katelyn's passing. I wish there were words that could ease your sadness or replace some moment with her. I wish right now for your faith to remain strong, as I'm sure Katelyn would want. But, knowing you, as I do, that is not of concern. I do know how strong you are, and that, among so many other traits of yours, Katelyn was so proud.
My heart is broken and I find it hard to get through my day now that a family member has passed.
I know that Katelyn is with God at this very moment, and I find myself asking her to pray for me and for us. What a very special Daughter you have. I love you all deeply. From the depths of my soul, I'm sorry for all of us, and this world, which will now be so empty. Patrick

Mike, Maria, Mickey and Family,

Words seem so inadequate right now. With a 5 year old and 21 year old, I can still barely imagine your loss. Just reading the guest book and hearing about Katelyn, it is so clear that she brought the brightest light into the world.

Mike, it's been years but, your strength and fun joy always seemed to help at some very tough times for our family. I'm grateful for that and wish that somehow I could help you and your family bear this burden.

With our love and prayers,

David, Toni, Valerie (Paraiso), and Rachel Coughlin

Annie misses you dearly.

Be rest assured that the Lord has His hands on you and your family. My family are grieving with you all. We will pray for all comfort that ultimately God can only give through His Son, Jesus Christ. Let me leave these words with you;
God said in the Bible," Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:28-30 KJV)
