A beautiful story of the sanctity of a human life.
MIAMI— A Miami woman who spent 42 years in a coma has died.
The Herald reports that before the teen lost consciousness, she asked her mother, Kay O’Bara, to never leave her side. She kept her promise, taking care of her daughter until she died five years ago. That’s when Colleen O’Bara stepped in and continued taking care of her sister in the Miami Gardens home.
Kay O’Bara was a devout Catholic who said she felt the presence of the Virgin Mary in her daughter’s room. That led Dr. Wayne Dyer to write “A Promise Is A Promise: An Almost Unbelievable Story of a Mother’s Unconditional Love and What It Can Teach Us.”
