My identical twin sister Kishma Danielle left on January 28, 2014.  She is finally rid of a fragile body that gave her so much pain, but as one of her most beloved friends said to me, Kishma squeezed every ounce of life out of that body she could. She was talented, sweet, giving, magical and loved. And though my mind knows she is in a better place, the earthbound part of me realizes I am now a twinless twin. So to make it through the sudden aloneness, I have started this blog to share stories of her, to pass through the holidays by writing her letters here, and to tell her how much I love and miss her.

  1. I can’t wait to hear what you write! I know it will help me too. She pushed a full life span into 53 years but I wanted more. Her creative sources were infinite. I loved and love her so much.

  2. I look forward to all of your stories Kyla because I have been blessed to know you. I hope you find peace. Love you Kyla!!

  3. I just lost one of my best friends — my mother — and LOVE this idea of yours! Thanks for sharing it with the world! ❤

    • This has been a tremendous comfort, especially the caring posts from others. I am so sorry for your loss and thank you for taking the time to share.

  4. I just found this site as well! I didn’t know Kishma personally, but I recall spending many hours browsing through the amazing costumes and performances she put on, amazed by the level of detail she and Ed put into their creations =) This site is a wonderful way to share your memories of her life with the world.

    • So sorry for the long delay…I forgot I get responses to this blog sometimes. Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. Indeed, she so enjoyed that world of costuming and was interested int he tiniest details. Thank you!

  5. Kyla, Hi, I knew your sister many years ago at RenFaire. I was sorting and posting pix to some faire groups on Facebook. I was looking for details before I posted a picture of Kishma at a cast party when I learned of the sad news. I am so sorry to hear of her passing, you have all my sympathy, she was a marvelous and talented person and the world is a lesser place without her. I would be happy to forward a copy of the pic to you if you so desire. It is possible I have more pictures of her, I am organizing my boxes of such and scanning them, and will let you know if I come across any more. You can contact me through the user email with this, or on Facebook, Dennis John McCall
