Kathleen Edward Loses Battle with Huntington's Disease, Dies at Age 9
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -- They are heartbroken. They've always known this day would come, yet it has still taken everybody by surprise.
Nine-year-old Kathleen Edward took a turn for the worse a couple of days ago, but she was peaceful and smiling to the very end.
"She was an angel and she did bring a lot of joy and happiness to everybody," said Rebecca Rose.
She was by her granddaughter's side as Kathleen passed away peacefully Wednesday night at her home surrounded by family and friends.
"We whispered in her ear and told her, 'Go be with your mommy,'" Rose explained. "She really did have this glow about her. She really looked like
an angel laying there, and she opened her eyes and took her last breath."
This is very sad news to report, she was a sweet little angel who has gone to join her mother.
The last couple of years she recieved love and hope worldwide.
Rest in peace Kathleen.
