I knew Kelsey through middle and high school. We were in classes and cheer leading together. She is a bright and happy girl it is tragic how this happened.. death is the most painful loss. I can only give my most sincere wishes to you, the family. I am praying her loving soul be eternally united to her God's embrace. Sending love to you all.

Going threw the pictures is the worst thing ever right now but it doesn't matter because they were wonderful memories. People will get to see your beautiful face and your lovely smile. You made me so happy and you did not only effect my life when you were here but you have even after this devastating loss. You taught me how to shop for the right shoes mostly heels and how to talk "ghetto" but today when the pastor was talking about you he said "she would always make you feel like you were her best friend" and he was right, the first time i met you the night before we left for Disney world within five minutes we were joking around and acting like we had known each other our whole lives. Sadly we won't be able to have anymore family trips to Disney but you are still here with us maybe not physically but you are here and always be here. I love you so much Kelsey and you are greatly missed.

I didn't personally know Kelsey despite attending Bethany church at about the same time. I am so very sorry for her loving family and Riley's love for her as well. It grieves me so that the life of such a beautiful young lady could be taken so senselessly. My God's love embrace all who knew and loved her
