Dear Kaziah, Thank you for the amazing portrait you painted of our beloved grandson, Caplen Weare.I'm sure it helped his parents,my son and his wife. I just purchased your video for them.
With our deepest gratittude. Richard and Judy Weare
I recieved my painting yesterday. I can not express the words of what this means to me. Thank you for you talent, time and using the gift that God has given you. My family and I will always think of you when we look at this painting while remembering Hampton.
The painting of Hampton is beautiful and we love this so much.

From Presidents and Politicians I have met, from bloody battle grounds I have seen, and from all my circumventions of the globe, Kaziah and her project stand at the top of my list for her respect of humanity.
Thank you so much for posting the pictures of the fallen that have been painted. It was wonderful finding my nephew Kyle Charles Gilbert on page 7 of your portraits. it is greatly missed and loved.
On behalf of the family of Michael "Max" Sachs, who was a security operative killed July 29th 2010 in a Taliban ambush in Afghanistan, thank you for accepting him into your gallery. His widow Connie will surely be surprised and grateful. God bless, and as we in the navy say, "FWAFS".
Kaziah, where do we find more Kaziahs? You are a shining light. You are a breath of fresh air.
God bless you.
What a gift from God, you are to all of us. Your paintings are breath taking and I can see that they come from your very soul. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
For your reverence, love, compassion for these American heros and their families...all I can say is many blessings to you, Kaziah. What heart you have. I'd seen your story a while ago and then misplaced my notes and had meant to look the story and you up. Today a friend sent me an updated video link and I was happy to see you again and also see that there's a documentary out -- which I have of course ordered. Your talent is amazing, but what's even greater is the personal connection you are making with all these fallen soldier's and their families that you've never met before. When you look at the pictures and feel their personalities emerge -- and you PAINT that...that shows me how well you know what made that person unique. God Richly bless you and your work --for even greater good in healing the broken hearted --and for teaching us ALL an important lesson in selflessness and true love for others.
I got an email from my sister-in-law and from my wife passing a few years back I have a very hard time with death and watching the video was very sad but very uplifing with what you do. So you must be a wonderful person to know for what you do for all the Mother and fathers and oe family memebers.
A friend sent me an e-mail about you. Watched the video and could not keep the tears out of my eyes. It is wonderfully refreshing to hear a story of someone who is so unselfish and giving toward those who have experienced maintaining our country's freedom at such a great cost. God bless you for sharing your talent with those will have lost a loved one in war.
You are the face of humanity. Thank you for sharing your gift w/ the world & especially to honor those fallen. Coming from a stranger, i hope you know how much you inspire others to be more selfless & compassionate towards others. It's so incredible to see someone who lives life & values what really is important. may you see beauty in all you encounter & live fully. blessings.
Didn't realize that a film was being done about your life. Hope to see it some day.
You and I met a few times at your house and in Provo at the gallery - my son, Sean, is now 13 years old and still remembers meeting the colorful Kazai.
I still want that painting on your north wall. :-)
Kazaih we have so much to thank you for. We are DeWayne's parents; you are painting our fallen soldier in your documentary. We are so profoundly inspired and touched by the documentary. We were not expecting that during the entire documentary that you would be painting our DeWayne in front of our eyes. It really touches us in a way that words cannot describe. We are ever so grateful as you so candidly painted his portrait, the way you looked at him and those meek words that you expressed as you were painting our son meant and said so much. We thank you for what you have brought back to our family in DeWayne's portrait. Kaziah you are definitely a very remarkable woman with an extraordinary gift.

I have been blessed by this amazing human being I am proud to call a friend. She can only be described as "worthy" to our Lord Savior for the amount of selfless time, heart and soul she puts into each and everyone of her "hero's". God has blessed us all for her spectacular gift of "life" in each and every portrait. I am honored to know her, and grateful for her spirit, Christianity and love of life. Yeah Ha Cowgirl! In Friendship and God's grace. I adore and love you Kaziah!
thank you kaziah, amy, and kathleen for letting the world know that life is too short to be selfcentered, sad, or selfish. compassion is the key and it cannot be taught to youth of today; but if seen if folks like you all - heaven can be on earth.
It is my pleasure to be assiociated with you Kaziah.Your heart of gold is free to all. Your friend and truth seeker . Anne Marie
