Kyle Evan Vigil
September 28, 2001 ~ January 23, 2002
This is harder than I thought to write a story about my Heaven Bound Angel.
Kyle was such a beautiful baby.
I want to share with you about Kyle's death. This story like all the angel stories you will read on these pages are so very important to educate the health care profession and public about bacterial meningitis.
My beautiful baby would still be alive if the ER doctor knew the signs and symptoms of this devastating disease.
On the morning of January 22, 2002 , Kyle was healthy alert and smiling. Everything was perfect until a little after 10.a.m. We were driving home from class and he started to moan.
He continued to moan the complete trip home. We arrived home and I began to rock him and I could feel his fever rising. His temp was 102.9. I took him to the emergency room. By this time it was about one hour after the first moan began. The ER doctor took blood, urine and did x-rays. He concluded it was a viral infection and told me to take him home and give him Tylenol and Moltrin. We were up all night and finally around 3:a.m. his fever broke. Kyle's daddy left for work around 7a.m. and I started getting ready to take Kyle back to the ER.
His fever was down but I did not like the way he looked and he was still groaning.
As I dressed ,I Noticed Kyle was breathing hard. I picked him up and he went limp in my arms. I rushed him back to the hospital there he went into respiratory failure. He went into a coma like state. At this point I thank God, he was not in pain. I had no idea what would happen to my baby.
The doctor kept apologizing to me and kept saying "I didn't know, I am not a baby doctor.
"I called Kyle's daddy at 9a.m. Kyle was transferred to Children's Hospital where he went into cardiac arrest. We stood there outside that room and watched our sweet baby Kyle die.
I cannot describe the pain .
The doctor who saw Kyle the day before could have saved our baby, if he had been educated on bacterial meningitis.
Many children will die this year because the medical profession is not educated on this disease. You can help to save your child and your life from this pain, death and mutilation.
Help Angels to educate the public and our medical profession.
Know the signs and symptoms of this killer disease and support Meningitis Angels any way you can.
In Memory of my sweet angel, Kyle
Your Mommy, Teri
Baby Kyle Sleeps with the Angels

By his momma Terri Hooker Kyle Evan Vigil 09/28/01 - 01/23/02 Nine Months Today The day my world stopped turning And my heart was shattered Because the best part of me Died that day. Nine months today! I will never understand Why God called your name But always remember My love for you will always shine. Nine months today! Now I live to honor you So know one will ever forget A beautiful, precious baby boy Whose name is Kyle Evan Vigil. Nine months today! I thank God that he choose me To be your Mama And though our time together was short The memories of you are my most priceless possessions. Nine months today! Written by Terri Hooker/Kyle's mommy 4 ever October 23, 2002 Gone, yet not forgotten, although we are apart, your spirit lives within me, forever in my heart. In Loving Memory of Kyle Evan Vigil 09/28/01 - 01/23/02 A FEELING SO STRONG A feeling so strong I never thought I’d feel Until I felt you Inside of me I then discovered love. A feeling so strong Beyond all imagination Was a day of labor And undescribable joy When my eyes first saw you. A feeling so strong That engulfed me completely That first time I held you And looked into your eyes I knew my life was forever changed. A feeling so strong It brought so much joy Too sleep deprivation Dirty bottles and diapers I learned to love unselfishly. A feeling so strong I could never describe How just a little smile Or the trusting look in his eyes Could lighten my heart and bring joy to my life. A feeling so strong It formed a lasting bond That even through the pain and tears And the heartbreak of loss Our love will last through this separation...to find eternity. Written by Terri Hooker/Kyle’s mommy 4 ever October 18, 2002 In Memory of Kyle Evan Vigil 09/28/01 - 01/23/02 18 Months Old Every beat of my heart Is filled with love for you With every breathe I take I am missing you. Today you would turn 18 months old A big, baby boy you would be But you had to leave 14 months ago Bacterial meningitis took you from me. I do my best to make you proud Because I know your watching over me It just so very hard at times Thinking how life would be with you now. Visions of what you would be like Fill my days and nights A life filled with love and laughter If only my 18 month old baby boy was alive.

I just want you to know that I am remembering you and your husband as Kyle's birthday is here. It's amazing how the time goes by and yet still seems like yesterday. You're precious baby boy is surely in the arms of angels. There is a quote from a wonderful lady whom I had the privilege of meeting at a Bereaved Parents/USA Gathering in SC over the summer. She said we are our children's legacy and if we are to share their song, then we have to sing it... I hope you are singing as loud as you can!!
Peace, Love, & Hope, Debbie Jerdo, Mother of HB Angel, Lindsay 12/16/83-12/24/01
