Justin Lott
Oklahoma State University.

She had recently been accepted into a program to spend a semester studying in China.

Family members are devastated over this tragic and senseless death.

They describe Kasey as humble, easygoing, fun to be around, popular and always smiling. She will be forever mourned.

Her brother, Wesley, describes Kasey as his best friend who is greatly loved.

To All Drivers: If you find that you are drunk or doped up on street drugs or prescription drugs or if you are falling asleep on your feet, do NOT drive. Call a family member or a friend for a ride; or take a taxi; or stay where you are until you sober up; or crawl home on your hands and knees. It will be better for you and for the world if you do. Regret can last a lifetime. 

Angels of God, pray for Kasey
Kasey is survived by many loving friends and relatives including her parents, Shelby and Tracy Waychoff and her brother, Wesley.

Pray for all who die by misadventure. They are with us one moment and gone the next.

God save us from the drunk and doped up drivers. They are killing us, Father. 

God save us from the speeding drivers.  They strike us down and then run away like wolves. 

Pray that Kasey is in heaven. Pray that she is at peace and is with God. Amen.
