Comments: WOW Katie it has been a few weeks since all of this happend. Everyone misses you and we still wish you were here. You were a friend to everyone. I still cant stop thinking about what happend. But we know you are in a better place now. I know you are watching down on your family and all of us. Its impossable for anyone to forget about you.

You had a smile that could brighten anyone's day. You didn't care about what people thought about you. You did your own thing and you didn't like anyone else tellin' you any different. I know there's a lot of people that look up to you for that.
Katie you are deeply missed and everyone thinks so much of you, we love you so much.

I know it is really hard for everyone one, but we know you will be waitin' at the gate for us when we get there, especially Cory and your family. We miss you and love you so much.

"It's never goodbye It's always see you later", so Katie I will see you later and I know you cant wait to see us.

Comments: Katie was my brother's fiancé, but to me, she was my sister. We went to football games and talked 'bout boys, and she always had to put her 2 cents in about Corey. Her words were "I have the loving and caring fiancé, and I love my Marine."  She would also talk about the Marines, and how she was gonna make Corey and her uncle salute her. I was proud of her. I loved her, and I know she will be waitin' at the gate 4 me to come into heaven. And we will go back to our talkin about boys and Corey. But what I worry is, who will I talk to about boys?  Who will I hang out with, and go to football games, soccer games, baseball games, etc.
I miss Katie so much. When we found out, I was screamin b/c I hated seein my brother the way he was. But we will ALWAYS REMEMBER YOU. I wont ever forget you. You were my role model and loved you for that. I cant wait to see you Katie!!!  I love and miss you every day. Wait for me at the gate, we will talk about Corey!  I LOVE U KITTEL (my big sis)

Love always,

Comments: I first heard the name Katie Kittel a couple of years ago when she played soccer with my daughter stephanie. She was a joy to watch. But I didn't have the pleasure of meeting her until she came to Arbys to work for me.The owner interviewed her and told Paul he didnt need to interview her also but to hire her and put her on the front line that we would see what he saw. He was right. Her spirit was so contagious. She was a joy to work with. She was my first employee of the month. I loved seeing her walk in the door to work. She made the job fun. She would talk to me non stop about school, her friends, her family , her fiance and her plans for her life which were abundant. Like the rest of you I have so many memories and would love to share them. I will miss her greatly. I think of her and her family daily. As I told her friends at work..I don't wish for one second that I had never met her so that I wouldn't feel this pain of missing her..I am so thankful that I did get to know her and the time I had to spend with her ...she made my life fuller.. All her friends and family are in my prayers..I Love You Katie..See you soon!!

Comments: My thoughts and prayers go out to Corey and Katie's family. And I know myself it is a very bad time when you lose your daughter, friend or anyone. But as I know and you'll know, she is with her father God and his son Jesus Christ. And we know that they had better plans for her in her life than what we did. But remember we WILL see her again. When I heard about her death I asked my mom, I said Katie Kittle? She said yes. It was very sad. And then that morning I went to my pastor Mike Dodson and prayed for Corey's family and Katie's. We will miss you Katie, but we know deep down we will see you again. And I hope that Katie's mom and dad are recuperating from this death of their daughter.

Comments: I was with some friends the night of Katies accident, after we all got the news we were silent for quite some time. I think we were re-playing images and times we had seen and spent with Katie. I know I was. At first my response was sadness and anger. Then I came to the conclusion that Katie would not want us to be bitter about it. If you knew her, she was never bitter. Always the sweetest, funniest girl ever.

I'll always remember this one specific day I was ranting about how I had to read this stupid book for english class, and since her locker was pretty close to mine..she overheard me. I was so mad about how it was such a lame book, A seperate Peace i do believe? Katie said "No ariele trust me, its a great book, the beginning is kind of slow, but its a really good book, you've got to read all of me you'll love it." we continued our talk of the book all the way to Mr. Whites class... i dont think I had talked to her much before this..other than she and my brother were VERY close. he always called her SkittleKittel.

Katie, that was by far one of the best books I've ever read. Your right, i loved it.

Thank you for always laughing and teaching all of us to love life, and be thankful for what we have. and that our time maybe short here on earth, but to live it up. And you did, you really did. Thank you for showing me how much God was in your life, and he made you so strong, and joyous to be around. You were an angel Katie Kittel. forever missed, never forgotten. Thank You for always being yourself and never changing, ill miss that fur coat floating in the hallway too by the way =)

Rest In Peace.
I Love you.

Comments: It has been a week since I learned of Katie's accident. It didn't seem real until today. I taught Katie Algebra in the 9th grade. She was so full of life and I could tell from the first day I met her that she would do great things. She was always so motivated and eager to learn, and loved to talk! After her 9th grade year, I didn't see her very much. I would see her pass by in the hall sometimes, but not on a daily basis. As the junior class president she had to be in charge of Ring Dance. I was in charge of decorating for Ring Dance, so we spent a lot of time together last November. We had some really great times planning and organizing everything and it was so special to see how it all turned out, but there were a few tense moments the morning of the dance when I was afraid there may not be a dance at all. Let me explain: Me and several other teachers and a small group of students (including Katie) came up to the school around 9:00 AM to put the finishing touches on everything. Mrs. Cornelison arrived with the truck of balloons, so several students propped open the outside cafeteria doors to help bring them inside. After they were delivered, the doors were shut. A few minutes later Mrs. Mann came running into the cafeteria telling everyone that a skunk had crossed in front of her car in the parking lot and was headed toward the cafeteria doors (the doors that had been wide open). Immediately everyone went to the window and sure enough there was a skunk in the corner right outside the doors. Needless to say, I freaked out. Katie was fascinated by the skunk, and concerned about its well being. Me, I wanted it dead!! I was so afraid that it would spray in front of the doors that it would stink so bad, the dance would have to be canceled. We all decided to give the skunk time to leave on its own, so as not to make it spray. Eventually it moved away from the doors and behind some bushes in front of the school. That was not good enough for me, but Katie wanted to know where it was, she didn't want it to get hit in the road when it left school. I don't know what she could have done, but she cared. She was flat on her stomach on the sidewalk outside so she could try to see it behind the bushes. We never saw it anymore and just assumed it moved on when no one was watching. Therefore, the dance went on as planned. I will never forget Katie's walk across the bridge that night to get her ring in her big sunglasses and fur coat, and having the honor to turn her ring. After the dance was over, I stayed along with a few other teachers to clean up. Katie stayed and helped. She didn't have to do that, but she did. She even gathered up balloons for me to take home to Cody and Sara. She was always thinking of others, whether it was her family, friends, teachers, SKUNKS, or my children. I was very lucky to have known her and will use my experiences with her to inspire me to be a better person. I'll really have to try extremely hard to work on my relationship with SKUNKS though, that could be a tough one!!
Thank you Katie!

Girl you have taught me soo much,introduced me to my first love, and have helped me endure hardships. I know you touched so many peoples lives and i hope you know what you meant to me. I mean seriously who else can u depend on to be there for you @ any hour of the night to cheer you up. From the smiles and the stories shared you have truly made an impact on my life..not only through life but also death in that i should cherish all my friends and family more because who knows what may come of tomarrow.

Comments: It's hard to know exactly what to say during times like these. One must hope for the best while knowing and seeing the worst. I met Katie the summer of my Senior Year while working at Liberty. She was working the concessions at a basketball game. After talking to her I found out she was just getting out of a bad relationship with a guy I knew. I began talking to her for a lil over a month but things didn’t work out. I never had the full opportunity watch as her and Corey began to date and grow together and finally get engaged, but when I learned of how much they had cared about one another and found out that they would be getting married, I was excited for the both of them. When I came home from Texas I missed an opportunity to talk to Katie as she walked past me down the hallway at BHS, and wondered how her and Corey were doing and if they had set a date yet. That weekend I was sitting at Ruby Tuesday's when I heard the news.
There is no way to explain the gut wrenching feeling you get when you hear of a friend's passing, or even worse how to tell the people you are eating dinner with the news, knowing that they go to school with her and that they probably spoke to her not even a day before. But as I drove slowly and surely towards Leesville Road I thought to myself, what am I going to say to a man whose heart is broken by the very love it craved and survived with. When I pulled into the driveway of her home, I walked up to a friend and asked to see Corey, knowing very well it had been almost 1 and 1/2 years since I had spoken to him on good terms. It was this day that I would forget all of that and move on from my childish haunts to more important beginnings. As I entered the room where he sat, I saw a man, not a boy, a man sitting with an expression of such sorrow, that I cannot explain how it made me feel. As I talked, he sat there listening without stirring or even blinking an eye. I made him a promise that night to be there for him if he needed me at anytime, and that everything that stood between us in the past was to be done away with, because in these times, friends are who you need most.

I dare not say that you will get over this soon. I know that you are in pain, and even though I know not how to help, I am here to help with open ears and an open heart. Time heals all things, and with time you will grow stronger. Just remember you have so many friends here for you, don't turn your back on them when you need them most. I cannot speak for all of us, but I can speak for me and the majority, we are all sorry for your loss and pray for you every night. The Liberty University Police Department, Lynchburg Communications Dispatch Center, the 320th Med COM. CSH, the 387th Med COM., and the 81st RRC all send their condolences and have all added you to their prayers. " ... and when I looked back upon the footprints in the sand I saw that during my most troubled times there was only one set of prints instead of two... when confronted the Lord said unto me, 'Child it was not that I left you when you needed me most, it was then that I carried you'..."

I know that this is one of the hardest things that you would ever have to go through. I didn't know Katie but she seemed so full of life in all the pictures that I have seen. Just remember that God has a plan for everybody and that he probably wanted her to brighten the sky as she did when she was here. Keep your head up as she would have wanted you to, Smile and remember all the things that she accomplished when she was here. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Sincerly Toy

I remember when she took my order at Arby's and i remember when she would get on the bus with her big fluffy coat. Katie was an awsome girl and every time you saw her she was smiling. And at least she enjoyed the time on earth she had with us. Even though Katie has left us we will always remember her and her bright smiling face and at least we now know that she is in a better place. No one will ever beable to forget about her (or her big fluffy coat). All my prayers and thoughts go to Cory and The Kittel Family.
So Katie we all will see you again some day and we will miss You so much. So watch over us and keep us safe

We love Butterflies too!

I didn't think it was possible till I came to Brookville. She was one of the first people to talk to me. I am not saying Katie was perfect.. but she was pretty close. But her smile was always the first thing that I noticed. She made alot of my bad days better... and believe me. THere have been ALOT of them. Being new to a school is hard and she helped me through it. I am thankful for meeting her. My prayers and thoughts go out to her family and especially to Corey. May God Bless You.. Love Always

But God knows she is in a better place. I know that she will not be forgotten.

Comments: Wow.. so the fact that this happened hasn't hit me full force yet. I still feel like when I make it home in a few weeks from school that Katie's still going to be at Lynchburg Music with my Mom and our family and friends.. that I will by chance run into her and Corey again at the T-Room. My greatest memory of Katie, and trust me there are lots, happened just a week ago when I was home for spring break.. She was so excited because Corey had come home and surprised her. She had worn this, black halter top, knee length dress that had white dots on it.. it was cute.. but what was even cuter was that she was wearing black pumas and laughing about how she couldn't find any dress shoes, and yelling at me jokingly because I was in such a rush earlier in the week that I didn't stop by the store to talk to her. I love you Katie you were and still are an amazing person.. I cant imagine what its going to be like when I get home and your not there.. Corey you know your like a brother to me and I'll always be here for you, Greg you too, you guys can call me any time. The rest of Katie's family, you know I love you guys too.. I wish I could make it home for Katie's memorial service, but even though I wont be there, she's still in my heart and I am praying for you guys. Love you all..

R.I.P Katie, I know you will continue to impact all the future evening dress puma wearing smiling, in love with their fiance kinda girls, cuz u've impacted me.

The students, teachers, and staff of Brookville have gone through so much lately it's unbelievable. There's nothing left for us to do but pray for Katie's family and close friends. We may not understand why God decided to take her away from this Earth but we shouldn't waste time questioning it. Keep her family in your prayers and thoughts.

God bless Katie's family!

Comments: I only talked to Katie every now and then, but when I did she always made me smile. She always had some funny story to tell or something to say that would make you laugh. She impacted so many lives while she was here and will impact many more now that she isn't. The Lord truly does work in strange ways and in time he will show what he had in mind. She is now in a better place and I pray that the family and Corey find comfort in knowing that. Katie was a truly wonderful person and anyone who ever crossed her path is lucky to have done so. She will forever be in our thoughts and her family in our prayers.

I still remember you in my Tech and Algebra classes in 8th grade, and how you were always the one to wake us up in the morning at our table. :) You were always a bright part of my life then, and I wish I could have seen you more in high school. I hope you are at peace now and are able to rest after what you had to go through. My thoughts go out to your family, Corey, and friends. I love you, sweetheart. Rest easy.

Comments: When I'm Gone....When I come to the end of my journey and I have traveled my last weary mile just forget that I ever frowned and remember only my smile.Forget unkind words I have spoken; remember some good I have done. Forget that I ever had heartache and remember I had loads of fun.Forget I have blundered and stumbled and sometimes fell by the way. remember I have fought some hard battles and I won, ere the close of the day. Forget to grieve for my going,I would not have you sad for a day, but in summer gather some flowers and remember where I lay, when the sun paints the sky in the west. Stand for a few moments beside me and think only of my best.

You were truly the most amazing person I knew, always smiling, always putting everyone around you in a happy mood. You kept me laughing every day...there was never a dull moment. I loved hearing about your spontaneous ideas and anticipated what crazy thing you'd do next. You taught me to live life on the edge and never be afraid to be a goofball. You always went the extra mile for had the biggest heart of anyone I knew. I will miss you for the rest of my life...I know you are now the most beautiful angel in Heaven watching over us all. I love you with all my heart, Katie.

Comments: To my many friends filling the halls of BHS,

I encourage you strongly NOT TO GIVE UP ON PRAYING for Katie's family, and her love, Corey. You have the most power in all the world at your fingertips...PRAYER...a connection with the Creator, the Savior. Don't throw the word around just because it belongs at a TIME LIKE THIS. Use it, pray without ceasing (1 Thess. 5:17), lift up the ones who need it most.

God's COMFORT (2 Cor. 1:3-4) be with all who knew Katie. Katie's home--her HEAVEN WON'T BE HEAVEN WITHOUT YOU. I praise the Lord Jesus Christ that I may see her again. Praise Him for His SAVING GRACE!

"Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord from the heavens;
Praise Him in the heights!
Praise Him all His angels!" -Psalm 148:1-2

Praise Him, Katie!

To Corey, Katie's family, and loving friends,

"[The Lord] heals the brokenhearted
And binds up their wounds.
He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name." -Psalm 147:3-4

God Bless you on this day,
Becky Mix

Comments: I didn't know katie at all because she was in the middle school when I was in the high school but when ever someone passes away from brookville it hits me hard because we are all family in a way. It seems like she had a good group of friends or a lot of people that cared about her while she was on this earth. It is hard to talk about someone this young because they are meant to be here living and fulfilling their lives not in heaven with God, but God had a mission for katie and that was to make heaven a little better which iam sure she is doing that as we are here writing these about her. RIP Katie my thought and prayers are with your family and corey while they are going through these hard times. we will all meet again in a better place

She always had a smile for anyone who needed it. I'll miss her long stories in history and our jokes about how we wondered if algebra II was ever going to help us in life. She was truly a wonderful girl and I will miss her terribly. SKITTLES~I LOVE YOU SO MUCH AND I WILL KEEP YOUR FAMILY IN MY PRAYERS!

Only God knows how much you will be missed. At the same time, with all the memories and love you shared with everyone, from the day you got here-- you're still here. Soon after you arrived in this "interesting" town, our friendship started and it will continue. I want to talk to your mom, because you always allowed her to be a mom to me through all the hard times as teenagers, that we had. Maybe when things settle down, I can share with her, the memories and goofy times that we had. Maybe I can bring forth a smile from her, just like you did when I was sick and my mom needed someone.You are/were everyone's light, :0).

Living life in the fast line, and living each day to the fullest--You couldn't wait for the rest of us, you had to go home to work the magic within your heart.

Comments: I apologize for not being able to have Katie's memorial page online sooner. I was in Florida since Friday, and arrived home Sunday night around 11:45 PM. I appreciate the email messages and pictures for Katie's page. And especially appreciate her parent's input. Our daughter totaled her car also on Lawyer's Road in 1996, when she was also 16, on the way from her boyfriend's house. A dog also ran in front of her. Fortunately, our daughter survived, but not without some injuries. I was so sad to hear about Katie. Although we've never met, I knew of her through the Marines, since our daughter married a Marine. I also knew of Katie's name from her being class president for the last two years. I know from that and from her website that she was a bright and popular student that will be missed by many, many people. May God give Katie's family and friends peace during this time.
