I Know Kempf Personally. Its Not Like He Did This On Purpose. This Was An Accident. As Far As Drinking After Consuming Alcohol, Kempf Doesn't Do That, Even The Test Thay Ran At The Hospital Say So. I Know He Is Facing Time, I Know He Will Probably Do Time. But No Matter What Happens I've Got His Back. Yes, I Am Very Sad About Michael && Kayla, But They Never Held Grudges So Why Should We?

I as well know Tyler personally.
I know that he did NOT intend on this to happen. He loved Michael like a brother, and Kayla as a sister. It's not like he would purposly do something like this. Also, he did NOT comsume alcohol. Unlike what anyone says. I know that Tyler wil be going to jail, but know this. I will always have his back, Kayla and Michael would not want us to be mad at Tyler, they would have forgiven him. So should you.

Tyler Kempf is a great friend. He is someone you can look up to, he is someone you can rely on, he is someone you can trust, he is someone who will take care of any problems you may over come. Kayla and Michael are such great friends to us all, and I agree with shaunna and shane. Kayla and Michael want us to forgive him, which most of us all have. Tyler would never do something, on purpose, to hurt any of us. It was a damn accident!! Shane is right! We all need to think of a way to help Tyler decrease his jail time or his charges. Tyler never drinks, we see him almost all the time, Ive yet to see him drink. Hes a good person, all he wanted to do was have a great night out with 3 of his good friends. I know he is sorry for everything, EVERYONE knows he is! So theres no point in everyone gaining up on him, wanting to kill him, or do any other things! He's suffered enough from some of his friends who are pissed at him! Hes suffered enough from two of his BEST friends who has passed away! I mean really! Come on now! Dont judge someone before you really know them! Tyler is a great guy! And for those of you who have forgiven Tyler, thankyou so very much! He really needs his friends right now! And there is alot of us who are always here for him...no matter what happens. Thanks!!!!!

I agree with all of you. Tyler doesn't deserve this and he wouldn't have done this to his friends. Kayla and Kuntry are like his siblings, like they are to us and Tyler our brother as well. We should try something to help him out. And we should all back him up. We all know that Tyler won't drink and drive and he wasn't drinking that night when they left. We have witnesses to that. Shaunna being one of them. If anyone tries to hurt him in any way possible, I will be there to fight for him. You'll actually have to gt through me to gt to him. I've had many others say the same thing when I said that. No one wants to see him get in the worse trouble people want for something he didn't want to happen at all. I know they won't give up the time and charges and I know he'll be facing these sooner or later, but we have to keep him up on our hopes and wish him the best. Everyone take care of themself.
Crackerjack, Tyler, buddy...I love you from the bottom of my heart. If you read this, I want to let you know I'll be there for you and I'm backing you up no matter what anyone says about you. I don't want you to blame yourself for this and I know Kayla and Kuntry wouldn't want that either. You stay strong and keep your head in the game. If you need something I'll be there for you. Just come to my work or my house, buddy. I love you no matter what and you have a place in my heart just like Kayla and Kuntry. Take care.

Not being mean or anything sir, but you just stepped out of line. Tyler didn't want this to happen or even mean to let it happen. It was something that could not be helped. It just happened. And most of us are athiest here so we don't believe in heaven or hell. Please keep your religion and beliefs with you and you only. No disrespect to you. I loved Kayla and Kuntry as two of my older siblings. They always looked out for me. And maybe to your god, this was his time to take them away. I don't know, but don't call Tyler anything. He loved those two. And punishment enough is whahe has to go through knowing what happened that night. So just please stop. None of this needs to continue. Everyone just needs to be there for each other and try to get through these hard times.

I love everyone, especially you Crackerjack. I'm still here for you whenever you need me. Loves!

See Mr. Mote, I hate to say it but its the fact that it was an accident, something that MAY have been preventable but may not have been. None of us will ever know. All we know is that God has taken two of his Angels home, yes we all wish that it didn't have to be them, but honestly, would you want them living on this hell whole like the rest. No they deserve better, we all deserve better. They're just the lucky ones who got to go first. I mean honestly, that's my opinion on it, and I will admit that Tyler is a very VERY close friend of mine, and no matter what I WILL stand behind him 100%. So I'm sorry Kayla's dad, but that was really fucked up.

Atheist,that explains it!
It's easy to see why you love Tyler (Scum) Kempf so much. "By her sorceries all nations were deceived." DWI doesn't necessarily mean alcohol, get with the program. If it were an accident, where's the apology? Oh, I forgot syphilis germs do not apologize!

Not to me! I don't expect it. I"ll explain later. Right now I'd like to clear the air. I was told that I need to shut my face and that I was out of line. Well, I'll tell you what's out of line. To have your ONLY daughter slamed into a tree at 85 mph, drive 7 hours to see your ONLY daughter slabbed in a funeral home, lifeless, wondering why. To wait 17 years for a high school diploma and instead receive a death certificate with the words, "cause of death; blunt force trauma to the head." Short story: In 1982, my unit was deployed to Grenada. Our motto "Better to die with honor than to live in shame." One night, the only thing that stood between us and death was a 50 cal. and a few m16's. Not one of us bolted, we stood our ground. Some of us came back alive and some didn't, but we all came back with honor. To know that we put our lives on the line for people like your parents so they could conceive rude and disrespectful children like you is a pathetic excuse for the American way of life!!! Now to the moral, related to our motto. Tyler has a secret! Only He, myself, and Sam P. knows. I suggest He tell all of you to remove some of the shame. Back later!

Well I guess it's about time I put something on this blog page but I'm sorry but I have to say it you don't ever go after my friends like that and say they need to rot in hell wishing people to a place they don't deserve to go none the less my family I don't know nor really care how they do stuff where ever you come from or grew up but I know one things for sure I have lived in Wilmington most of my life and my friends are family, yes all of them, Kayla was a big part in this family also nor will you ever know or understand if you keep acting like this. I'm sorry for what happened I really am I use to wish that it was me every single day until just recently because for some reason I was ment to be here on this hell, I am ment to make some sort of difference, why I don't know yet but I am gonna find out why. No matter what it takes including stepping up to you face to face to say I'm sorry which I wanted to do ok, but unfortunatly I was told DON'T! I am sorry for what happened and I know I can't take any of it back, If you know how please tell me because I miss hanging out with Kuntry and Kayla they were 2 friends you could count on for anything, but out of all honesty I honor Kayla she was one of the most fantastically cool people I have ever met or even known she could always somehow keep a person smiling and feel warm on the inside even if you wanted to do something unthinkable, she always taught and has shown me to look beyond what your human eye sees: like when you look up at the trees and you see them swaying in the wind back and forth to think that there waving at you or when it's a cloudy day and a sunbeam is right where you are it's because of who you are, where your at or even who your with because then it seems like that is where you are supose to be at that exact moment in time. Now if that doesnt make you open your eyes and realise that it's life theres always gonna be little joys than I don't know what will like I said before I have wished that it was me that wasnt here right now not Kayla and Kuntry. I think that of all people you know what I mean when I say honor and thats what I did and still do, come to carolina beach one day ask a few or all the people that knew Kayla have hung around Kayla or even just been around her once I promise you that you will hear nothing but great or even fantastic things because thats the type of person she was even the people I know personally that said they have only hung out with Kayla once they say "she seems like a pretty kool person to chill with" EVERYONE! She liked almost anyone and everyone that I can think of off the top of my head, she was a well rounded human being that never looked back. But you know the best part about all this is remeber what I just typed?, with you being her dad you can say that was my little girl she is yours...your little girl has one of the best friends to have as a friend. With all this being said I wanna ask you from a son of two fellow Marines as yourself, and yes my parents are Marines so you can only imagine the determination they have behind me to push me to be the best that I can because I know you did the same for your daughter, do you acept my appology maybe not forgive me but do you at least accept it?? By the way I did appoligize maybe not to you but I did I told him "I am so sorry I'm speechless right now but I AM sorry please dude know that if you ever need or want anything just let me know I feel bad enough as it is just please don't be afraid to ask. Sir with respect that goes the same for you even if you wanted to meet me in person so I can appoligize I would, just one favor never judge a book by it's cover because what happenes at the beginning never really get talked about.

To Kayla's Dad:
I really think your message was a little out of line....and pretty immature.....your loving daughter would not want you to be mad at Tyler....yes i know she is gone i have a tattoo that i look at EVERYDAY to remember her && Kuntry both....not to mention pictures..
Just know that your daughter was honored by many people as well as loved...

Cracker Jack:
Nice it made me cry....and like i said first...I've got your back NO matter what...I know you didn't intend for anything like this to happen....and remember I LOVE YOU LIKE A BROTHER.
