A few days ago I linked to a story that Michelle Malkin did
on a sweet and nice obituary written for a man that killed his two kids. My entry was entitled "How Would You Write An Obituary For A Child Killer?
" Well, now I have a little more information on the two little girls.
Kelsey Byrne was born February 7, 1993. Hayley Byrne was born September 15, 1995. They were killed by their father on November 22, 2004.
I was tipped off by a reader that there is a short documentary that has been put together on the girls. You can find the video here. It is not a documentary like you may think, it is more of a life in pictures video. Their obituary is here. You can leave a tribute message to the family here. They have not yet designated any charity for donations.
It is a deeply moving video, both happy and sad. I did cry watching it because I have two kids of the same age and have seen my kids doing the same things. Playing dress up, at the beach, learning to crawl etc.
Their memorial service is to be held today Saturday, December 4, 2004 at 2PM here is the location:
Trinity Lutheran Church
6215 196th S.W. Lynnwood, WA US 98036
Other sites that originally covered the obituary
If you get my trackback, please spread the word on these two girls, thank you.

Update: (September 9, 2005)
I have been notified that there is a memorial fund set up for Kelsey and Hayley Byrne at Shore Lake Soccer where they use to play soccer.
All members of Shorelake were saddened by the recent passing of Kelsey and Hayley Byrne, members of SYSA teams Blue Fusion U-12 (FC Shoreline Select) and Hayley's Comets U-9 (Hillwood Soccer Club). A memorial scholarship fund has been set up in their honor - please click here for details.

Yes, this "man/father" was at every one one of his daughter's important events.....even their deaths. I held my dying son in my arms...I would have given anything to keep him here on earth with me. Yet this man was so selfish he destroyed those precious little girls, their mother and the extended family.

Tried to watch the video but couldn't. Too painful.

I loved these girls with all my heart and i still mourn for them and cry. It's hard going through this stuff, this happened when i was in the sixth grade, and it turned out that i had a huge test the next day, i couldnt concitrate because of how sad i was. I love you Hayley, I love you Kelsey, you will always be in my heart. I didnt realize how lucky i was when you two were alive.

I put in my nieces names "Kelsey and Hayley" and came up with this website. This is very sad. My nieces were born in 1992 and 1995, so they are very close in age to what the Byrnes would be :-(
