Michael, Kyle, Mikey and Ellena Sweet

After a long fight with cancer, Kyle Rae Sweet, wife of Stryper front-man, Michael Sweet passed on to be with the Lord at 8:30pm on Thursday March 5, 2009.

Michael met his wife Kyle during the recording of Stryper's first video "You Know What To Do" when she agreed to do makeup for the shoot.  As Michael recalls:
          "I remember hugging Kyle at the end of the night and feeling as if we knew each other our entire lives. She was God sent yet it took me a while to realize this. She stood by my side during an unstable time in my life and always loved me unconditionally, no matter what. I shared God's love with Kyle through scriptures and prayers many times, yet it was her who showed me how to love - how to really love someone. I asked her to marry me and I was blessed and fortunate enough to hear her say "yes". I realized at that very moment that she was my soul mate and the one that God had chosen for me."

Kyle had a successful career doing makup for such films as Ghost, The Terminator, Repo Man, and Teen Wolf. She also had a degree in child psychology. Caring for her husband Michael and their two children, Mikey and Ellena, whom she home-schooled, was her dedication.    
            "She is one of the most brilliant people that I've ever known yet she has the most gentle, humble spirit of anyone I've ever met."  - Michael Sweet.

A private funeral service will be held in the coming days.

To best honor Kyle's work as a home-school mom there has been a fund set up called The Sweet Children's College Fund.

In lieu of flowers, donations to this fund can be made payable and mailed to:
Sweet Children's College Fund
Sovereign Bank
50 Cohasset Avenue
Buzzards Bay, MA 02532


From everyone at ROCKandREVIEW: Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Sweet family at this time of great loss in their lives.

A Letter from Michael Sweet
