  1. Aunt Kelly will be greatly missed by all her family. She was so sweet and kind. I remember at the family reunion she won the wreath that I so badly wanted, and without hesitation she turned around and gave it to me! I still have it to this day and when I hang it up it is a constant reminder of her. She was always so giving and just wanted her family to be happy.
    I sometimes felt like an outside at family events after moving away and not seeing everyone as much but there was 1 person who always made me feel like I belonged.. Aunt Kelly.
    My heart is saddened by the news but I know God has her now and she is looking down on us all.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to the rest of our family as we deal with the sadness of her passing.
