Message from Christine Hayward August 5, 2017 10:13 AM
I work for first choice for children in Pembroke. Kassie trusted her son Dylan to us and I am forever grateful for the opportunity to know their family. Kassie would come in each morning with a smile that lit up the room. She was kind, caring, and even joined our staff for a few months. She and I would often talk of our glory sports days and even talked of playing softball together some time. My heart aches for her family and especially for Dylan. My deepest condolences. Kassie will be so missed.

Message from Aaron and Lisa Pope August 5, 2017 10:33 AM
We had the pleasure of meeting Kassie, Rich and Dylan at First Choice for Children. Colby and Dylan had been in the same classes at school for a number of years so we always had the pleasure of hanging out together! Whether it was playing Just Dance to Barry Manilow(her choice) or going to Fisher Cats games or just hanging out at the ball fields, we all had fun! I am so sorry about this tremendous loss as Kassie was such a beautiful person!

Kassie was beautiful on the inside and out for so many reasons. Her smile, laugh & energy were infectious. Her love for those in her life radiated from her at every opportunity. She was especially loved by the children whose hearts she touched - the proof being their eager run into her arms for one of her all out bear hugs. The world got a little dimmer on Thursday, but know that as a community we pledge to keep your light alive.

I had the honor of being Dylan's kindergarten teacher. Kassie was a supportive and loving mother. It has been many years since Dylan was in my class, but every time I saw her she greeted me with a big hug and a thank you for all that I did for Dylan. The truth is, she made my job easy because she was raising a kind, responsible, and intelligent young man.My heart breaks for Dylan, family members, and friends
experiencing this tragic loss. There is a void left in this community, because women like Kassie are rare and I am having a hard time envisioning it without her in it.

We had the absolute pleasure of living next door to Kasey for the past 8 years. She really seemed to find joy in being helpful and had a heart of gold. I'll never forgot her smile. She will be so missed in the community. Rich, Dylan and family I am so sorry for your loss.

Message from Natalie (Brisson) Thompson August 7, 2017 12:58 PM
My thoughts are with your family at this time. Kassie was such a genuinely nice and caring person. I have fond memories of my time spent with her during high school track. She was always so fun to be around. May she Rest In Peace.

Message from (Russ & Betty Anthony) Manchester, NH August 7, 2017 1:48 PM
Dear Wayne and Pat.......Kassie has indeed left our world much too soon. Betty and I remember her as a little girl, full of energy and always active. I am sure both of you are proud to have the memories of such a notable person in her community. I really wish I had known her as she matured. My loss, for sure! May God provide the comfort and peace to both of you as I am sure this is a most difficult time. May God bless you and your extended families.

Message from Troy Merwin August 7, 2017 4:23 PM
I've had the pleasure of knowing Kassie since our kids were in preschool together. Needless to say the word of her passing was a huge shock and a loss to the entire community. Her zest for life, the love of her son and outgoing personality were unlike any other I've ever seen! You'll be missed Kass, no question. Rest easy.

To the Hamel family; I am very sorry for your loss; I will always remember Kassie at the beach, her smile, and like myself, a love for all sports

My deepest sympathy to each of you for your loss. Deep sorrow fills your hearts at this time. May you find comfort and strength in Almighty God. He is the giver of life. It saddened him when we shed tears of sorrow. Through his Word he gives us comfort and hope for those who have fallen asleep in death.

Dear Pat and Wayne,
There are no words to express our deepest sympathy. Kassie was a ray of sunshine. Her welcoming smile was as familiar as the tides in Maine. She genuinely cared about our family and each summer, we always looked forward to sharing stories. She will forever be etched in our hearts as a warm and beautiful memory. May her life and all of its beauty and sincerity comfort you.
August 20, 2017
My heartfelt prayers and best wishes go out to the Hamel Family, as I am truly sorry for your loss. I always admired Kassie's passion and love for the sports she played and coached.
August 20, 2017
So very sad to hear such a brilliant soul has been lost so young. There are no words and this is something no parent should have to endure. Thinking of all of you and thankful that you are both so loving and solid and can be there for her son. Her beautiful spirit surely lives on in all of you. Love, Denise

Wayne and Pat,

My deepest condolences to you and your loved ones for the loss of Kassie. She was such a kind and fun-loving woman that our family always looked forward to seeing. Tonight, I am putting on a performance of "Beauty and the Beast," and I dedicate it to her spirit. God bless you both; I am keeping you in my prayers.
August 13, 2017
I am so sorry that words cannot express how I feel about your loss of your daughter. My heart dropped when I heard. I enjoyed working with her and she loved her work. I met Dylan many times while we worked in Pembroke and as you said he was the light of her life. I can still see her smile. I will never forget her. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Pat & Wayne,

I am deeply sorry for your loss. Kassie was a ray of sunshine that our family looked forward to seeing in Wells every year. I always admired her determination to follow her passion.

As I continue my work in autoimmune disease advocacy, I will keep Kassie's spirit with me and fight for fellow patients in her memory.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your loved ones.
August 12, 2017
Dear Pat, Wayne and Ian, Bill and I were shocked and deeply saddened when Nathan told us you had lost that beautiful little girl I knew. I wish I had been aroound to see her grow into the special young woman she became. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and all who knew and loved her.
