To Matt and the family of Chelsea Chesney.
My thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time. My heart is heavy as I read Chelsea's obituary. Chelsea was one of my first grade students at Allen School. She was such a sweet, hard working student. I treasure those moments of my former students. Heaven has gained a beautiful angel.
