Kelly was a very special person. I would pick her up and bring her to the LIFESPAN Day Program and bring her back to Amity. I loved to hear her sing in the car as we drove. Her smile was contagious. She loved her friends at LIFESPAN and we all loved her right back. I will miss you Kelly Lee Crooks every single day!

I served as Kelly's case manager for 10 years. She always had a spark in her eyes everytime I saw her. She was a beautiful person on the inside and outside. So many people loved her and she loved everyone. She was a ray of sunshine with all she came in contact. Because of her I am a better person. She lived her life to the fullest. Heaven is a better place today because of her presence. Fly high Kel Kel. Heaven has gained another angel 😇

Kelly, my niece is special. She is a ray of s unshine in so many lives. God gifted Kelly with beautiful eyes and a sweet smile that made any heart melt. A real miracle of life that inspired all who knew her to be better, to love more and neber give up in the face of life's challenges. Kelly learned to pray, know Jesus as her savior and show others just with her presence what love means. Teresa, Kelly's mom is the blessing that allowed Kelly to thrive and expand her abilities, always seeing possibilities! A great mom! Amity, Kelly's sister gave strength and support that made setbacks opportunities for God's love. Jessica, Kelly's twin sister knew kelly's heart from the start and with a hug shared Jesus's promises. I will always love Kelly, be grateful for our times together , cherish her every word and listen, while she sings with heaven's angels!! Thank you Kelly for loving me!
