Praise the Lord, we were saddened to see Riley has passed. My husband and I; we often would lift her up in prayer and your family. She made us more grateful for all the Lord has done for us.

Riley’s beautiful smile is forever impressed in my memory, her passion for helping other sick kids was extraordinary! She cared more about other sick kids than she did about anything else!! Her brilliant smile, heart and soul will always remain with me! I still cry when I see her running to Jesus 😞Thank you for sharing your beautiful,extraordinary and loving daughter with us! Just know I never stopped praying!!!🙏 I can’t wait for the day I get to give her a hug and have her introduce me to Jesus!

You don't know me. I have been following the Instagram posts since November 2020. I placed her on my church's prayer chain. I just listed to her service. The Pastor is so right....she is cancer free and she will see you again. He did a beautiful job of honoring such a beautiful little girl. Thank you for sharing her short life with us. All the way to Wisconsin!!! You have my sympathy. And I will meet her one day as well. God's blessings to you!

The Lord Jesus lead me to follow Riley’s faith story on Facebook. My favorite memory of Riley is the video of her in the store with Mimi where she walked up to the scanner and said to Mimi “ do you know why it won’t scan me? because I’m priceless. This is what I will think of when I remember Riley. I was so blessed to be one of the prayer warriors for Riley and for her family. My heart is broken with and for you. I pray that the peace of God that passes all understanding will keep your hearts and minds. God bless you and comfort you as only HE can. In HIS love, Kay ❤️❤️❤️

Rachael, Matt, Olivia, Liliana (Whippies), Baby Adalynn, Tiffany, Uncle Benny, Buttons and family, I am so very sorry for your great loss. I’ve been following Riley’s story from Tiffany’s first post on one of the Disney pages. I have friends and family following and praying for Riley and your family, too. She touched more lives in her short life than most do in a long life. I lost my first child, Brianna Nicole, 25 years ago. She was only 4 months old and died following a routine DPaT vaccine. I know the pain you are going through. I’ve walked in your shoes. We bought our first home 4 blocks from the cemetery and visited everyday. My husband and I sat there and read her books, counted and sang to her for over two years until we were blessed with another daughter, Caitlyn Brianna. Our lives were forever changed on November 2, 1998. It took a while to pick up the pieces and live again. We did. You will, too. It will take time and it will sometimes feel like you can’t get out of bed. You can, you will and one day you will feel better. To Olivia-you are the best big sister! You often felt a little left out but always stood by Riley’s side. The two of you were awesome painting partners and loved doing arts and crafts. Your love for animals brought you even closer. What a special bond. You should be proud that you were the best, strongest sister there was. Rachael - you are one strong mama! The look on your face in many of the photos just broke my heart. There is no doubt that you and Matt would have gone yo the end of the earth to do what you could for Riley. I know she felt your love no matter how weak she was. I thank you for allowing your mom to share her with us. Tiffany - thank you so much for keeping us informed throughout her journey. Oh, how I wish it had a fairytale ending. I wanted the two of you to ring that bell together. From the bottom of my heart - God Bless You All. Riley Faith will forever hold a special place in my heart. With Love, Cathy Colonia, NJ

If a soul only changes one person for better during their lifetime they have Gods praise awaiting them. To change as many lives as Riley did is all God could ever hope for. Thank you for changing my life by showing me your love and wisdom Riley.
Rhonda F. left a message on August 10, 2023:
I am so deeply sadden to hear of Riley's passing. Rest in the knowledge that she was born for a time such as this. She brought happiness, love and hope not on here in SC but around the world for all of those who followed her. In her few short years, she gave this dark world a glimpse of happiness and for that I am grateful and thank you for the gift of her to all of us. My thoughts and prayers will be with you in the weeks and months to come. She waltzed from this world into the arms of Jesus, where he smiled and said, well done my good and faithful servant. God bless you.
Ben Howell left a message on August 6, 2023:
So sorry for your loss!! Molly and I followed Riley for the last couple of years and were inspired by the spirit, strength and faith that you all showed. She was really special and I'm sure she is one of the hevenly angels shining bright!! We will always remember her.

My thoughts and prayers are with you, the family and friends of the darling Riley Faith. No words can take away the incredibly difficult times you have faced and are facing, but I have faith that she is safe with God and you will see her again. I learned about Riley’s journey via Lorna Byrne’s Circle of Light FB page and then followed you all every day praying each night for Riley with my daughter, smiling at her strong happy face in the photos you shared, and crying at the darkest moments. I’m not sure if you know Lorna, but her books gave me incredible comfort at some very difficult times. She reminds us that God and his angels are always with us, and that the soul of our loved ones will be with us whenever we need them. Even if we can’t see them in the same way that we did in life, we can still feel their presence in spirit. Riley is an incredible little girl who has taught the world so much in her seven valuable years. She has taught me to be brave, to be kind, to appreciate everything I have, to care for others more and to see the joy in life. Though I was not lucky enough to meet her or you all in person, God made sure that the special gifts she and you have transcended the oceans and touched as many lives as possible. Thank you to you for sharing hers and your journey, I continue to hold you all in my heart and send you all my love, thoughts and prayers.

My sincere sympathies to Riley Faith’s family and friends as I feel as if I lost a grandchild. I started following Riley Faith’s journey through our Prayer group called the Prayer Quilt when we were notified of her illness after she was diagnosed. I fell n love with her as she reminded me of my baby pics and my daughters. I am 81 yo and daughter is 61. We prayed for Riley to b healed but if it was GOD’s will. I never question GOD regardless and I have many losses but not a child r grandchild. I pray for u to have peace happiness and many precious memories of Riley Faith to carry u until u see her again! I look toward to seeing her and I promise to give her a hug for u! GOD BLess you and keep u safe! GOD loves you and so do I.

So sad, So sorry, this Special little girl passed away at such a young age. She shined of LIGHT and had a smile that make people smile. Her laughter was so peaceful. I still cry everyday, wondering why God Almighty didn't save her, but I know that he is busy, and he gave her 3 great years of LIFE, after she got cancer in 2020. She will be missed. I still cry. I am a medium and clairvoyant****Her spirit will always Shine and is still Alive.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I have been following Riley Faiths journey for a long while. What a remarkable young lady and what a lovely family. Have prayed for Riley and her dear family. Riley has inspired me in my faith and my love for others. She did more in her 7 short years than some do in a lifetime. May God comfort you in this great loss. I can’t imagine what you are feeling. You are special parents who had a very special gift from God.
Gina Lindley left a message on August 1, 2023:
I have followed Riley's journey for many years. Although I have never met Riley, I love her dearly. She has touched the hearts of so many around the world. I believe that Riley's purpose was to bring so many together in unity and prayer. Our world has so much divisiveness, however we were united with love and prayer for Riley. She was such a special child. A blessing to all that we're blessed to know her whether personally or through her story. She was a beautiful child and will be remembered forever. I am praying for God's peace for Riley's family, as I know your loss is unbearable. All of my love from Bentleyville, PA, Gina Lindley

Katie Phillips left a message on July 30, 2023:
I just want Riley’s parents and family to know just how much of an impact Riley Faith had on my life and my walk with Jesus Christ. A high school friend kept sharing posts from Mimi and one day I decided to find out what these posts were about. I began to pray daily for Riley not just once a day but throughout the entire day. As I became more invested to pray for Riley, my faith changed from questioning to trust. Riley Faith, faith, taught me to not question God but to trust Him beyond our circumstances. Thank you Mimi for sharing little Riley’s journey with us and allowing all of us the opportunity to pray for and with her and most of all to grow closer to our Lord.

I'm very sorry for your loss of such a sweet, innocent soul. My thoughts and prayers are with you as your family grieves the loss of your little girl who has left this Earth way too soon. Thankfully she is healed and there's no more pain for her, but I can just imagine the heartache that lives on your families and friends hearts. She was a amazing little girl who was strong and a fighter until the end. Look for signs of her coming around. She won't leave you. She will be with you more than you realize. Open up your thoughts and heart and you will feel her presence. Even if it is just a song on the radio that comes on the moment you change the station. Sweet Riley Faith, you will forever be missed and loved. You will see your family again someday!! Keep watch over them until then. Let them know you are around. It'll help them heal. RIP BEAUTIFUL ANGEL!!

I never met Riley personally but followed her on Facebook. I prayed for her every day. She was such a blessing, that smile that happiness she showed was so sweet. I felt like she was one of my own great-grandchildren. Many tears shed for her and all of you. Praying for the whole family and God Bless each and everyone of you.

I have followed precious Riley's journey. She touched so many people in ways that most will express. I will forever remember her smile, the side eye look, her caring for other's. This was the most amazing way to celebrate her life. She is in Jesus's arms and no longer in pain. My condolences to her family. She will forever be remembered and loved by all that got to meet her and follow her short lived journey. I don't know you all personally but I will eventually make a trip your way and would love to stop and visit with you all and tell you how she touched my heart. Her love of animals was more love than some people can even express to their own families. Heart of gold!!!!! I'm only a message away if you ever need someone to talk with, cry with and laugh with. Your precious angel was definitely smiling down upon each of you today. Grief is love that we can no longer give to them like we use too. Always talk about lost loved one's. God Bless each of you. Thank you again for sharing your families journey. Sending love, hugs and prayers. Riley will send you signs that she is with each of you when you least expect them. Fly high sweet angel you will never be forgotten. Love and miss you from the small town of Northern Cambria Pennsylvania.

I have been following sweet Riley Faith soon after her page was set up. She touched my life in so many positive ways, as I'm sure she did many. I will miss her beautiful smile and bright personality. She loved Jesus and now she has met him face to face. We all prayed for a miracle and she got that miracle the second she went to Heaven. She fought hard and she won her Victory. I lost a niece in Dec 2022 from brain cancer. She loved to draw and left us with many beautiful drawings over the years. I have a feeling she and Riley will meet in Heaven and will draw even more beautiful pictures. May God heal your broken hearts and comfort you by his loving arms. Thank you so much for sharing precious Riley Faith with us. I pray for a cure for cancer.... I will miss you Riley Faith but will hold dear the sweet memories you left us with. Many prayers for her family that is left to miss her terribly ?

Dear Rachael, dear Matt, dear Benny, precious Olivia and dear Mimi, the most beautiful Grandma, It took me days to gather myself and be able to write these lines. I was to devastated. I have been following Riley from the beginning, all the way across the ocean. And from the first day, without really knowing why, Riley became a huge part of my life. I prayed for her and all of you all day long. I bought ladybugs pins to have Riley with me in every room. Overtime she completely changed my life and as Matt said she might have saved me. I was, like your pastor, in a very bad place when Riley came into my life. Almost three years later, your daughter, your sister, your granddaughter, your niece turned my life around. She became my inspiration and will always be until the day I will meet her. I talked about Riley all the time and still do. I had timers on to pray as Mimi asked us to do at 7:00. But all day long, she would always be in my mind and prayers tens of times per day. She was and will always be a huge part of my life. Riley had a mission, now I have no doubt about that and she did more in her life that anyone of us will ever do. She was an angel. I know she was. I am not a religious person but I am very spiritual. Riley came to bring light into this world. She is my best spiritual teacher and I will always be grateful that I had the chance to be part of her mission. She made me pray like I never did before. Now, my days are prayers for all the people who are suffering. I pray for you all. Please smile knowing that Riley was a miracle. The miracle of healing we were all waiting for was HER! She gave the miracle of healing to thousands of people. I am devastated for her loss here on earth, but I am also blessed I shared an angel journey, her journey. She came to make a difference in this world and how well she did it! So I whisper to her all through my days: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Even if we will never hear from you again, and I will respect your privacy, you must know that you will be in my thoughts and in my prayers until I die. Please take care of Olivia. My heart breaks every time I think of her. Tell her that she is loved as much as Riley was loved. She was the most beautiful big sister. I can't even imagine how you are all feeling now, but you will be in my heart forever as Riley. Sending you much love from France where I am from and from Romania where I live for now. France and Romania heard about Riley and the legacy she left me... the legacy that love is the only answer and to not take anything for granted. Give a huge hug to Olivia and Button. You are the most beautiful family I ever met. I love you and I cry with you.

I was very sick and in the hospital in December and January of 2022 and 23. This is when I began to know Riley through Face Book. I started to pray for her. I felt like we were connected through struggling with a disease that hurt our livers. I never forgot her from that time on and prayed for her daily. I am old and she is young yet we had so much in common. I cry and tell her I don't want to stop praying for you. Yet reality is all prayers are answered and she is in her real home. I pray comfort for all of Riley's family and friends. My prayers will change now and be for all of you. I love you in Jesus and Maranatha!

I cannot begin to imagine the pain you are all going thru, There just aren't words enough. My Mom lost a 7 year old, many years ago, when she was 30 and never did stop missing her, She lived to be 82 and still cried when she heard a song she used to sing. I'm sure Riley will remain in your hearts forever. Thank you for sharing her short life with us, She was a blessing and changed so many lives, including mine. I will never forget her beautiful smiling face. May God be with you on this difficult day. Love and prayers to all of you.

Sweet Riley Faith, Princess Warrior, Lady Bug, Sloth Girl. I have followed your story on fb for almost 3 years. I prayed for you during you ups and your downs. I was right there with you watching, praying, and waiting for your miraculous miracle. Even thought you couldn’t see me, I was there. Always waiting for another update from your sweet Mimi. Through her eyes, I got to experience your life, your story. I fell in love with you and your family. I am in awe and amazed by how much you accomplished in your short time with us. Though it was brief, you have left an everlasting imprint on everyone that has followed your story. I’m so glad that your memory will live on through your foundation. So sweet Sloth Girl you will never be forgotten. Fly High Sweet Riley Faith. Rest In Peace. To the family, I want to thank you, Mimi for sharing your family with me, and allowing me to go on this unwanted journey. I have learned so much about Faith, Kindness, and most of all Love. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the entire family, especially Olivia Hope, Liliana Grace, Adalynn Joy, Mama, Dada, Mimi, Uncle Benny, and Button. I will pray a special prayer for you today as you lay your sweet baby to rest, and continue to pray for God to give you peace, comfort and strength today and in the days and years ahead. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed. Psalm 34:18

My thoughts have been on the family since I saw the tragic news on Sunday morning. I cannot imagine how her sisters are feeling, especially sweet Olivia. What a blessing to see the love they all had for each other. Adalynn will grow up knowing Riley named her, what a precious gift! I will forever hold a special place in my heart for this whole family.

We never met Riley Faith, yet we feel we know her and your family. She will always be in our hearts. We prayed for complete healing, but Jesus took her home, but her work here on earth was done. She touched the world with her faith, love, and kindness. Your family showed how to lean on Jesus in mist of darkest times. Riley is running and painting with no pain now in the presence of our Lord. I ask Jesus to wrap His gentle arms around all of you and hold you tight, comfort, and bring you some peace now. Despite the deep pain and sorrow it's only until we meet again, when Riley Faith will greet you at heaven's door. I look forward to meeting little sloth girl one day! You raised a beautiful smile girl that touched the world, Thank-you and Thank-you for sharing her! God Bless all of you, we will keep you in our prayers!

The video tribute is absolutely, ?%, the very essence of Riley Faith. And I'm certain it is in no comparison to the actual presence of her life. I see pure joy in her face, it is evident that her entire family provided her with such love and experiences beyond measure. She was so encredibly blessed in the short time she was on this side of heaven and we all were blessed beyond measure to have experienced her presence among us. I truly believe, beyond a shadow of doubt, that we were in the presence of an angel. For whatever reason, and I believe there were multitudes of reasons, she was with us for such a short time, she made such a profound impact upon those whose lives she touched. To her mama and daddy, her beautiful sisters, Mimi and grandparents, Uncle Benny, and other family members, thank you for opening up your lives for us to have a glimpse of your angel. I am thankful beyond words. I will treasure her memory in my heart for the rest of my days and look forward to seeing her for eternity in heaven. Blessings. ❤️

I remember the first time unread Riley’s story. I just got diagnosed with cancer myself . Her little smiles and giggles inspired me so much during her journey to keep fighting , helping others in my journey , one if my favorite pictures of her was when she had a little boyfriend , she loved to get her hair fixed and dress up to go to school. Too funny ? through out her journey , watching her love helping other kids and taking them gifts to help theme get through their days in the hospital , they are so many memories to write them in this post. One that really stands out his her love for Sloths , the brightness in her eyes were worth a million . I was so touch by that , I made her a sloth blanket to take on the plane rides back and forth to New York for treatments. She so impaired me to keep going no matter what and I will remember her love and how she loved her family , friends , and animals , but most of all used her purpose to brighten all our days .I will forever have this precious little girl in my heart. I love you Riley Faith until we meet again . Heavens little precious Angel is healed ?????

I checked her page many times a day just to see how she was doing. She has grown to my heart with her smile. She reminded me of Shirley Temple. Her putting lip gloss all over your face because she wanted it to be shiny was one of my favorite memories. I love Riley and will miss her. Prayers for her family.

My heartfelt condolences go out to all the family of precious Riley Faith. Your beautiful girl touched so many hearts in so many ways and like so many others have said “even though we never really knew Riley personally we grew to love her.” Truer words and who would ever think that would ever happen, but it did. Now your sweet Riley is free from her devastating pain and sadness in her eyes. Now she is a happy little girl doing those things that brought her so much joy. May you find comfort and peace knowing you are thought of in our prayers. Sincerely,

From the day I started following Riley's journey, my heart was absolutely captivated by her bravery, wisdom, and selflessness even in the midst of her own battle. I celebrated her victories and mourned her losses as if she was one of my own babies. Seven years just doesn't seem like enough time to spend with a spirit as beautiful as Riley Faith's, but as I read story after story of how she impacted, loved, and inspired people of all ages throughout the world, it's so clear to me that she fulfilled the calling her Heavenly Father placed on her life. God used Riley's story to give so many the desire to fulfil the greatest commandment of them all- love your neighbor as yourself. What an honor to know this family, even if only through social media, and what an even greater honor to know that because of Jesus, cancer has no victory over Riley. Rather, Riley is sharing the victory that was won for her before she was created. Because Jesus lives, now Riley lives an everlasting life that can't be taken or corrupted. No eye has seen, nor ear has heard, the joy and the peace that Riley Faith is experiencing at this very moment. Riley, you will truly never be forgotten here on earth.❤️

I have shed so so many tears begging God to give you your miracle on this side but he had bigger plans. I’m praying that God gives your family the strength and comfort for the days, weeks, and years to come. Even though I never met you in person you inspired me to be a better person, mama, and child of Christ! I’ve thought about you every hour of every day and prayed more than I ever have.

Riley Faith was such an inspiration to all. She was facing the unthinkable as a child. She should only have worried about when she would ride her bike or whether she would swim or color, but had to look at doctors and medicine all the time. She always cared and thought about others from other children, animals, or her family. She was an amazing child. We will miss her smiling face and laughter even though we got to know her from following her journey on Facebook. Riley is still with us and we are all better people and our world better from the influence she has had on us! Rest easy, Riley, with our Lord!

Little Riley Faith inspired us all through her fighting spirit and gentle giving personality. While only given 7 years to accomplish her life's goals she prioritized others comfort and happiness above her own. The depth of her generous nature greatly surpassed her tender age. While Heaven is no doubt shining brighter with her in attendance this world lost a bit of its luster when her soul took flight. Riley Faith brought so many to a closer walk with God by simply needing our prayers. Rest easy now in the arms of God sweet princess. While you graced our lives with your smile for such a brief span of time you left a legacy that would take most of us a lifetime to achieve

My sincerest condolences to the steep family. We came to Love Riley as if she were our own daughter, or granddaughter. We came to love this family as our own extended family. Their joys became ours and their sorrows became ours as well. I will remember Riley particularly from a video the family had on their Facebook. There is a video I watched of Riley's big sister Olivia teaching Riley how to ride the bike. Of course The talented Riley was able to conquer the bike and ride it on her own. I love the way Riley got off the bike and did a sassy strut in victory, and then she told everyone that she learned how to ride the bike in one day. :--) it just really made me smile. She made the whole world smile as her sisters do. This is how I will forever remember Riley, and that magnificent personality will always make me smile and laugh. I can see Riley doing that sassy strut as she arrives in Heaven to meet Jesus. If anyone can make Jesus smile that would be Riley. I love to watch all the videos of her laughing and interacting with people and her family. When God made Riley he broke the mold. She has such a personality and she is so, compassionate, and intelligent. What a special Angel she is. I will always keep Riley's family and Riley in my prayers. When Riley and her Sister's inherited their parents from God they won the lottery, and vice versa. We will never forget the steep family and Riley.. many of us feel as if we too lost a family member. We will keep all of you always in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Riley’s family, whom I never knew personally, but who have become so close to me. You all have become so close to the many thousands of people you have allowed to walk with you through this time of pain and tears. Riley united around her so many people whose hearts were touched by her story. Riley is that wonderful instrument in God's hands through which He has changed many hearts and I believe will change more. Every day I was waiting for news about Riley and rejoiced in the victories that you rejoiced in too, and now my heart aches, as well as thousands of other people who love Riley. Little Riley did so much for the Lord and set a good example for others how to share love and joy in times of pain. Your family has shown a wonderful example of trusting the Lord in dark time because He is always Good. Here this 7 years the Lord has entrusted you with the care of dear Riley and you have fulfilled His commission worthily. One day there will be a happy reunion with her and we all will be so very happy to hug dear Riley there, where we will praise our Lord together for eternity. Me and my church in Ukraine continue to pray for you. Thank you for being able to carry your faith in the Lord through a difficult time and allowing so many people be touched by Riley’s life. I pray that Riley’s life story will encourage many people to come to the Lord Jesus and receive eternal life. I pray that one day there will be a huge number of people in heaven who have come to the Lord because of Riley's short but vivid life.

To Riley's family & friends, My heart breaks ? for you but to know she is with Jesus is so comforting. I heard of Riley's story on FB and followed her. I loved that she wanted to help other children feel at home while they were in the hospital. I donated to this cause because of Riley's selfless love ❤️. Due to living in Virginia I will not be able to come to her service but plan to watch it. Thank you all so much for livestreaming it for her many friends/family to watch. I will continue to keep her family in my prayers in the days ahead. Although we never met I fell in love ❤️ with Riley & her courageous battle with cancer. I am a Christian & will see Riley again. Praise the Lord

I am heartbroken for you, her family. I wish to thank you for allowing us to journey along with you the past almost three years. I, like thousands more, hoped and prayed that Jesus would heal her this side of heaven. Although we must accept His decision to heal her in heaven we can take solace that He loves her even deeper than you, her family. I hope that you all can feel the love and strength being prayed over you as you deal with the sadness that she is gone. Thank you, Mimi for chronicling her journey and to her parents for allowing us to love and pray for precious Riley. I loved reading about her and looked for messages frequently. Riley encouraged me to live better and pray harder. She was a beautiful child, inside and out and I learned patience and compassion from her. I hope that the entire family, especially Olivia, feels the prayers of the thousands of people for comfort and strength. May God grant you peace as He watches Riley painting for Him.

I had a chat with the Lord about this last night. I asked him why? Didn't he promise life abundantly? Then it occurred to me... Riley is still living an amazing abundant life, only in her heavenly home. Her mansion was completed and move in ready. This is not the life of abundance we're promised, but sweet Riley is experiencing what that abundant life means now as she walks beside the Lord upon those streets of gold. ? She will be so missed here, but there she is healthy, happy, and surrounded by family that's gone before her. May her angels remain here with her family, friends, and pets as they await that heavenly reunion that God has planned. ?

Riley's kind thoughtful nature is an inspiration to me, She was also so funny and cool :) sloths are so cool and she liked to play with slime. She loved animals and she made amazing paintings. She showed great care and love for her sisters, her family, and even other children at the hospital. As she was dying from cancer she would still remember the kids at the hospital and the comfy cozy mission I believe is truly a very important mission. I will do my best to bring the comfy cozy mission to Saline, MI in memory of Riley Faith

My heartfelt condolences to your family on the loss of sweet Riley. I will always remember showing her around my sister’s farm. She was sweet and sassy at the same time. She was well loved. My continued prayers as you navigate this life on earth without her. It’s not goodbye, but we will see her again one day. Hold on to that hope! Much love!

O Sweet Grieving family of Little Riley, how broken must your poor hearts be. I cannot imagine the pain and agony you feel, May the knowledge that Jesus has Riley in his arms bring you comfort. There is a statue that I once saw and admired of Jesus playing ball with some children. He will assuage all the fears that she felt and love her as you did until you go to her in Heaven. I hope this little thought will bring you some small comfort along with the words of St. Aloysius Gonzaga in a letter to his own mother as he was dying of the plague. Praying for all of you. May Our Lord bring you peace. MEDITATION OF THE DAY Hoping to Be Repaid by the Father Most honored lady and mother in Christ: May the grace and consolation of the Holy Ghost be with you always. Your letter found me still dwelling in these regions of death, but very soon to pass into the land of the living, to praise God forever. I thought to have made my last passage before now, but the violence of the fever, as I told you in my last letter, diminished somewhat, and so brought me to the glorious feast of the Ascension. Since that time it has again increased, by reason of the inflammation in my chest, so that now I shall soon enjoy the embraces of my heavenly Father, in whose bosom I hope to rest safely and forever. Now if charity, as Saint Paul says, makes us weep with those who weep, and rejoice with those that rejoice, how great should be your joy at the grace that God grants you in bringing me to true joy and assuring me that I shall never lose it again. I confess to you that I am quite confused and overwhelmed by the thoroughness of the divine goodness, that boundless and fathomless ocean that calls me to an eternal rest after such short and trivial labor, which invites and calls me to heaven to that Sovereign Good that I sought so negligently, and that promises the fruit of those tears I sowed so sparingly. Beware, dearest mother, of wronging the Infinite Goodness, by weeping for one as dead, who is living before God to help you with his prayers far more than he could while here below. This separation will not be for long, for we shall meet again, and enjoy each other’s society in the next life, never to be wearied of it, united together with our Redeemer, praising him with all our strength and singing his mercies forever. I do not doubt that you will put aside human considerations, and so will easily attain to that faith, to that pure and simple obedience that we owe to God, offering him freely and promptly that which is his own, and all the more willingly the dearer it is to you; knowing for certain that all he does is good, and that he only takes back again what he had before given to you, for no other reason than to put it in a place of safety, and to give it what we all desire for ourselves. I have said all this merely in order that you and all my family may acknowledge my departure as being an extreme gift: and that you may follow and aid me with a mother’s blessing to pass this gulf and gain the shore of all my hopes. And I have done it more willingly because I have nothing else left to prove the filial love and reverence which I owe to you. Once more humbly desiring your blessing, I conclude. Your most obedient son in Christ. Saint Aloysius Gonzaga

I don’t have the words to express my deep condolences but I do have the words to express my deepest gratitude. Gratitude to all of you for sharing Riley and your family. I have a 6 and a 7 year old grandchild. I hold them a little tighter when I see them. I met Mimi through my prayer group and quickly learned of dear Riley Faith. Thank you again for sharing your beautiful Riley with the word. She brought love, kindness, empathy, compassion and awareness. Many friendships were made Many people found our Lord for the first time through your little girl. Although young she moved mountains. Gods Blessings From Michigan

I'm so very sorry for the loss of this precious baby. I can't imagine losing a child. She was destined to achieve greatness here on earth. But Jesus must have needed her more than us. He gained the most beautiful angel. I didn't know her personally, but it still feels like I lost her. I'll think of her daily, & think of her precious Button, who lost his precious human. Prayers to all her family.

Michaela Bailey left a message on July 25, 2023:
I never met Riley Faith but I followed her Mimi’s FB page, Team Riley Faith. I felt like I knew Riley Faith though by seeing all of her beautiful pictures shared daily. I loved her smile which lit up the world, her funny silly faces that made me giggle and the fact that she loved animals so much and taught me to love even lizards and snakes as well. She touched so many hearts around the world and made us all better people. We are now all giving back because of what she taught us. I miss Riley Faith. I worry about her family, her siblings and her dog Button. We saw Riley Faith in her happy times and we saw her as she got sicker. But even then she fought with all she had. She loved her family more than anything. You all now have the brightest star in the sky twinkling at you every night with butterflies dancing around you each Spring that Riley Faith will send you from above. She will send so many signs that she is happy and well holding hands with Jesus and with her Grandfather. God bless you always. Love, Michaela and Marlow from NC

I met Riley Faith through facebook.. she stole my heart.. I would always look for the daily post of how she was doing. I prayed intensely for a miracle and then I thought my prayer was answered she was healed just not on this side of eternity. She is pain free and that is a great comfort.. I lost 4 family members back to back recently and I know the pain, however I can tell you that Jesus is close to the broken hearted and binds up their wounds.. Im praying for supernatural peace for you all and for the Lords presence to be felt all around… thank you for sharing your beautiful little girl with us, my prayer life is forever changed❤️

God bless each one and comfort you in this time of need. She will be missed but never forgotten. She will be looking down on you and when it's your time to go she will be waiting for you with arms opened wide. God bless.

Even though I did not get to meet her in person I feel like I knew her and on hard days I prayed more. On good days I smiled and rejoiced with her. Thank you Jesus for always loving us and for sharing Riley with her family and Thank you for her family! Thank you so very much to you, her family for sharing her story with us. I too lost a granddaughter who was stillborn and even though we may not ever know why Jesus chooses our little ones, we know His promise that we will see them again seems to help a little. May you continue to find strength in Christ as you go through the days, weeks, months and even years ahead. Continuing to pray for you all.

Debbie Campbell left a message on July 25, 2023:
I've prayed since I first saw post on Facebook and then I saw on news . I continued prayers daily for her healing and for her family. Though it's not the healing I prayed for, I know Riley Faith is totally healed and safe in the arms of Jesus. With several of my close family members having passed so close together, I often questioned WHY WASN'T HE OR SHE HEALED BECAUSE I SURELY PRAYED FOR HEALING. I FELT MY PRAYERS WERE NOT ANSWERED, I WAS CONFUSED WHY GOD DIDN'T HEAL THEM. AFTER SOME TIME, THROUGH FAMILY, I REALIZED EACH ONE WAS HEALED. . . TOTALLY AND 8N NO PAIN. I'LL SEE THEM AGAIN. THEY HAVE SEEN JESUS AND ARE HOME FOREVER. IN THAT IS COMFORT. I AM CONTINUING PRAYERS FOR ALL THE FAMILY AND FRIENDS. GOD IS GOOD AND DOESN'T MAKE MISTAKES. MAY YOU HAVE ASSURANCE AND PEACE. LOVE AND PRAYERS.

Riley Faith stole my heart! She was so beautiful, full of energy, artistic, kind, and caring. I will never forget her, nor will the tens of thousands people around the world who fell in love with her and followed her on a journey that she never should have had to take. She has an amazing family who did everything that they could to find a cure for her and make her time on this earth special, fun, and loving. I will keep all of you in my prayers. I don't know if it is something that you would want to do, but I would love to hear from you about this journey that you did not want to take and how all of you are doing. Also, if there is anything that I/we can do, please let us know. Love and hugs to all of you! ?

I never got the chance to meet this sweet baby in person. But I’ve followed her stories since the beginning. She was the sweetest, loving, caring child. When Riley was out shopping or doing her painting it was always someone else she was thinking about. She had the biggest heart I’ve ever seen come from a 7 year old child. I will certainly miss seeing her on her group but I know she not hurting anymore and is dancing in the heavens. We love you sweet girl. RIP

I can just picture Riley in heaven being completely pain and worry free twirling and dancing with her Grandfather. There are no words to express how deeply sorry I am that her family here on earth have to endure the pain of this immense loss. She was blessed with the most amazing family who gave her so many memories and experiences during her short lifetime. Riley has touched so many hearts and soul's during her time with us. Thinking of and praying for the entire family at this time.

Riley was such a bright light in this world. Something about her grabbed my attention, and I've been following since she was diagnosed. We should all strive to live like Riley... in the moment, laughing, run don't walk, kind hearted, thoughtful, dancing like no one is watching, enjoying every second of life from when her feet hit the ground until she goes to bed at night. Her light is dimmed, but not out, because she touched thousands of people. Children should never die. Their parents and families should not have their hearts shattered, or feel the crushing pain of grief that never goes away. My hurt hurts for all of you. I am so sorry. Riley left a deep impression on me, I want to be happy, and live life like Riley did. This photo of Riley sums up her firecracker personality perfectly. It's how I will always remember her.

Riley Faith has touched the hearts of our family and our church family - New Harvest Church of God - Gaffney, SC. Even though we never met her, we loved her. We prayed for her many times during the day and night. Our church family prayed for her every Sunday and Wednesday during our worship services.

Riley Faith truly exhibited her name. She had faith through all of her struggles with cancer. Her faith taught all of us to show the same compassion and caring for other people. She is healed now and truly is lighting up heaven with that infectious smile and giggle. She is twirling down the streets of gold. Fly high Lady Bug!

My thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of sweet Riley Faith. I do not know how or why the story of Riley showed in my Facebook news feed when Mimi started the Facebook page asking for prayers for her granddaughter. I have followed Riley's journey through the years, she was such a beautiful, sweet, loving, caring little girl and such a fighter for being so young and going through so much. We all wanted to see a different outcome for Riley, but God was ready to call his child home to heaven above. To read all that Riley accomplished in her seven years here on Earth is a ture testament not just to the person she was, but to the loving, caring family who supported her and rallied behind her. May God wrap you all in his loving arms these next few days as you lay your beautiful daughter at her final resting place and continue to comfort you all as you learn to adjust and carry on the legacy of Riley Faith and her foundation.

I am so very sorry for your loss, no words can fix the hurt of losing a loved one, especially a child. Just know she is healed an happy an not in pain an most of all you will see her again. God’s love an peace.
