Kerry brought joy wherever she went. Over the years our families came together for so many holidays, birthdays and notable events. Kerry always made the occasion special with her homemade treats and fun decorations. But really it was her cheerfulness, graciousness, humor and sincerity that would light up any room, and that wonderful smile of hers. Kerry made it a point to sit and chat at length with mom (Katie Nolden), which mom so enjoyed. That was Kerry...always making time for others. There are just so many wonderful memories swirling in my head that involve Kerry, and I can't believe she's gone. She is so missed. Our deepest, deepest sympathies to Rick, the DiGiovanni family and the Prokup family. Our hearts ache for you all.

I wish I would have been able to say goodbye to you. There are times I sit and think of you and have a conversation telling you how much you meant to me. I will always cherish the many parties we had at your house to bring in the New Year and dinner parties. The conversations we would have at the Fed will always be some of my favorites. Your smile will be one that I will never forget. I don’t think anyone could forget it. I have learned that there is no better time than now to chase my dreams. To do all I can while I have the time — and unfortunately, your passing showed me this. I pray all the time for your family and friends, and I pray that you are in Heaven finding your way. To my beautiful friend Kerry who was taken too soon, I love you and miss you!

Best friend, wife, confidant, and partner in crime. You were the best thing that ever happened to me. I am so very lucky that I was able to have the time we spent together. You will forever be the kindest and most loving person I have ever known.

If ever two people were meant for one another, it was Rick and Kerry. I am so saddened by the news of her untimely passing. Kerry was one person that I have no memory of her ever being discontent. All my memories of her are exactly as she is pictured, always with a big kindhearted smile. The world was really a better place with her being in it.

There are no words that will make this better right now! We have lots of memories from the dinners at the Bailey-Orchard house. Your smile, laughter and your love of Pauli girl showed the sweetness in your heart. Gone too soon but you will forever live in the hearts of those that knew you best!
