You have a very special place in my heart. I can still hear your voice and your laugh, it was the most beautiful thing ever. I love you to the moon and back. Fly high my beautiful aunt.

My wonderful Kelly! Not just my dearest friend, but truly a part of my very soul. I love you as I would a daughter & will miss you beyond measure. Please know that a day will never go by that I won’t think of you & know that whatever Mark & the “boys” need, Michael & I will be there for them as we would for you always. Rest in peace. You will forever live within our hearts.
